GRADES 5-6 SOFTBALL UPDATE
The 5-6 Softball Team opened up the season on Thursday night with a loss to Anthem Prep 7-4. It was a nail biter throughout the game until the top of the 5th inning when Anthem Prep scored 3 unanswered runs to take the lead for good. Josie B. and Audriana A. pitched 5 solid innings and allowed only 3 hits while striking out 8 batters. Kylie D. and Ashlyn B. each did well behind the plate catching. McKenna B. played a solid 2B making 4 put outs. Overall, it was a great start to the season and we look forward to our next game on Thursday, 12/6 away at Lincoln Prep. 
Go Eagles!

WINTER WARM-UP CLOTHING AND BLANKET DRIVE

As you begin to switch over your closets to your winter wardrobes please set aside any warm clothing items that no longer fit your children or yourself.  We are looking for coats, hats, shirts, pants, gloves, and scarves. The Clothes Cabin would also appreciate the following items: children's clothing sizes 6 to 14, new underwear for men and women, socks for women/men/children, maternity clothes, blankets and towels. You can drop these items off in the bins near the MPR. Thank you for your help and support!


HOLIDAY FILL-A-BAG FOOD DRIVE
Horizon Honors Elementary Student Council is hosting a holiday food drive and working with Phoenix Rescue Mission and their "Fill-A-Bag" program.  The Fill-A-Bag program is designed to meet the needs of families and individuals in the Phoenix metro area who are homeless, in crisis, and in transition by providing healthy, non-expired food through our Community Market, emergency food services, and city outreach initiatives.  Please help us to collect non-perishable items so that we can begin filling bags today and sending them off to families in need. We will be collecting now through December 7th. We are encouraging families to use this as an opportunity to help your child understand the importance of service and gratitude.  Encourage your child to gather their spare change or money earned and go shopping together. Work with your child to find the best deals and think about how to provide healthy choices on a budget. Before donating your items, ask your child to write a special message on the item or affix a note of holiday wishes.  We are also collecting holiday cards or words of encouragement that you can create as a family. The items we are collecting for each bag/box are: 1 box of cereal, 2 cans of hearty soup, 1 box of rice/pasta, 2 cans of beans, peanut butter, 2 cans of tuna, 2 cans of vegetables, 2 cans of canned meat, 4 packages of Ramen noodles, 1 box of Saltine Crackers, 3 rolls of toilet paper, 1 bar of soap and 1 tube of toothpaste.  Please feel to bring in individual items or fill any paper/cloth bag with the listed items as another option.
