Welcome to Horizon for the 2017/2018 School Year
The Horizon PTA is excited to welcome our students, parents, teachers, administrators, and staff back to school! Our mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. As a Leader in Me school, Horizon will continue to focus on leadership, communication, cooperation, initiative, and unique individual talent to empower students to be confident, skilled leaders at school, home and elsewhere. Research shows that students are most successful at school when their families are involved, so we invite you to join our PTA (for only $7), volunteer as your time allows, and attend PTA and school events. Our website has a plethora of information for you, but if you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Horizon Hustle Fun Run 2017
The Hustle is our school's ONLY major fundraiser, and we get to keep 100% of the money raised to use toward helping support our school. Each year we raise funds in September and October to help our school buy supplies, materials and equipment, which in turn helps our students reach their potential. Students get to run laps during the Fun Run to earn money with each lap they run. Information about the Hustle will be sent home soon. To learn more about the Horizon Hustle Fun Run CLICK HERE
