A Welcome Message from Your PTA President

Jasmine Durham, VP of Volunteers
My family and I moved to Madison specifically for the great schools and I'm so happy we found Horizon! This is our fourth year here, with my child starting third grade. In my spare time, I enjoy making crafts, reading, exercising, and baking. Before deciding to pursue volunteer opportunities, I worked for many years as a high school teacher. I am very excited to be working with the PTA and the Horizon community this year!

I am excited to be serving as room parent coordinator. This year all of my four children will be attending Horizon. They will be in 6th, 4th grade, 2nd grade, and Kindergarten. I grew up in Mississippi and have degrees from Mississippi State University. My husband and I moved to Madison in 2001 and love living here. Prior to having children I worked in Public Relations and taught some classes at UAH. Now I'm a stay-at-home mom who loves volunteering with my children's activities. As a family we love to swim, camp, travel, go to church, and play outside. Thank you for trusting me to serve as the Room Parent Coordinator this year.

Christy McGuire Communications
I am the mom of two fun Horizon students. My husband and I know that the great experience they have had at Horizon is partially due to the hard work of PTA members who were here before us, and I am excited to be part of supporting our amazing faculty as they serve our current generation of Horizon Eagles.
This year I am taking over the communications chair position. Please contact me if you have questions or ideas for this web-site, Facebook, or the PTA bulletin board. We want everyone to feel like they are in the loop and part of the Horizon community!
I am also proud to be the mom of a special education student at Horizon. I would love to hear from other special education parents so that we can work together to better support our hard working special education staff, and make sure every child in our school gets the education they need.
You can contact me through the Facebook page, or at ThrivingSTEM@gmail.com.
