Horizon High,
We are excited to announce that we will be part of a composting pilot for the 2017/2018 school year!  You won't see any changes this school year, but we wanted to prepare you for the pilot next fall. As part of that preparation, we would like to get some information from staff, students and parents around what they know and think about composting. Please follow the link on the Horizon Web Page to complete the survey before the end of the school year.
Follow this link:  If you have any questions please reach out to Shannon Oliver at the ESC or Steve Lash.

Just a reminder, the Hawk store in the main lobby is still open during 8th hour.  We have earbuds, gum, pencils, pens, paper, and notebooks.  If you need it for class or those upcoming finals, come down and see us!

It's time for yearbooks! Seniors, you can pick up your books at the ticket booth in the lobby starting today. Distribution for all students will be Monday through Friday next week. Please make sure you have a photo ID to get your book and make sure to pick it up no later than Friday, May 12. Not sure if you ordered one? Check the list posted next to the ticket booth. See Ms. Root with any questions.

Students: Library end of year due dates are coming soon! Seniors, all library materials are due next week on Tuesday, May 2nd. All other students, your due date is Monday, May 15th. This year we've had about 8000 book circulations! Way to read, Hawks!

Senior News

If you did not receive a letter in the mail come see Ms. Jones in the Main Office.  It has important information regarding practice, check-out and graduation, and special instructions as to what is and isn’t allowed in the CU Event Center.  These restrictions apply to students, staff and all guests attending the graduation ceremony.   

Graduation (May 17 – 2:00 pm) is right around the corner, as is practice and check-out (May 12th – (promptly at 9:30) - 2:00). Make sure you are ready by paying fines, getting any books turned into the Library, thank you notes sent (in the Main Office) and projects in to your teachers on time.  Congratulations, you’re almost done!

Do you have a fee or fine?  Make sure you check the senior fine list now posted next to the bookkeeping office.  Please check it often as new fines will be posted daily. All fines and fees must be cleared by May 1st in order to pick up your cap and gown and participate in the graduation ceremony.
