WE ARE READY FOR THE GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE 2018
Kindness Certified School Seal_2017
Did you know Horizon Honors Elementary is a Kindness Certified School?  Have you ever walked through the halls and had the door held open for you?  When you walk in each morning are you greeted with a "hello" and a smile? Do you feel that sense of community when you come to visit our campus? 

For the last few years Horizon Honors has been able to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge and for one week, we highlight and celebrate the various ways we can be kind each and every day and show our school values.  This year on January 22nd each child will be given a Kindness Checklist and challenged to complete all of the tasks in one week.  Students can also use the editable version and work with their families to spread kindness in their community outside of school.  This amazing event also helps to support our pledge to be a NO PLACE FOR HATE school.  By spreading kindness and love we are helping to make everyone feel included and cared for!  Please take some time to support your child as they plan their kindness adventure!  Great Kindness Challenge Checklist - Editable Version!

STUDENT COUNCIL'S HOLIDAY ACTS OF KINDNESS
Before the winter break, Student Council members gathered together special items to send to children around the world as part of the Operation Christmas Child program.  They were able to gather enough goodies for ten boxes.  The students received a special thank you for OPC's local liaison, Tina McDougall.

GRADES 5-6 CROSS COUNTRY UPDATE
The 5-6 Horizon Honors Cross Country team is having a great season. All of the runners have been improving their 2 mile times over the course of the season. Some highlights of the season have been a 3rd place finish for the girls team at the Northwest Christian meet and a 5th place finish for the boys at the Fountain Hills meet. During our home meet at Pecos Park Carter K. placed 13th overall and Madison S. placed 16th overall! We are so proud of our runners and look forward to a strong finish to the season.

GRADES 5-6 BASEBALL UPDATE!
Our 5-6 Baseball team came home with another win on Thursday when they played against the previously undefeated Scottsdale Christian Academy.  It was a home game for the Eagles and the boys put on a great show for all those Horizon Honors fans.  Scottsdale scored first and our boys rallied to come back with to 3 run second inning that was sparked by the return of Diego T. with a lead off hit and then score.  Eagles had another great pitching outing from Zach S. and Aidan (Double A) A. who battled back from being hit by a pitch in the second inning.  I can't say enough about this team and the effort they give every outing. Coach Stevens and Coach Rubio want the boys to have fun and have confidence in their abilities.  The fact that the boys rallied to score with bases loaded in the last inning to end the game capped off an exciting day of baseball with a Horizon Honors WIN!
Come out to support the boys at their next home games on January 23rd and 26th. Games begin at 3:30 p.m. at Desert Foothills Park. Go, Eagles!
