MEDIA CENTER NEWS
This week the K - 4th grade students read They All Saw the Cat by Brendan Wenzel.  This  picture book is a Caldecott winner.  The cat walked through the world, with its whiskers, ears, and paws . . . In this glorious celebration of observation, curiosity, and imagination, Brendan Wenzel shows us the many lives of one cat, and how perspective shapes what we see. When you see a cat, what do you see?

Thank you for considering working the Book Fair. The book fair is an exciting place to be! All Elementary classrooms will visit the book fair, with their teachers. Volunteers will assist students with finding prices on books, restocking new books, assisting students with money (do I have enough to buy something), counting bags of change, finding an appropriate book for a certain age, ringing up items, hanging signs, making signs, assist in drawings, price checking items in the fair, making displays, decorating, etc.
Please sign up using SignUp.com for shifts that are convenient to you!

Please remember that is it not only unsafe but it is illegal to drop off student on Frye Road, 48th Street, or 50th Street. Help us keep all our community members safe and only drop off students in the designated locations. Thank you!

YEARBOOK PICTURES NEEDED

ART MASTERPIECE BEGINS SOON!
Art Masterpiece is a national art enrichment program that uses reproductions of fine works of art to promote art literacy in children.  Various artists are presented during the year to each classroom followed by a hands-on art project.

The Horizon Honors Elementary Art Masterpiece program is run by volunteers.  No art knowledge or experience is needed or required to present or help with the classes.  All projects are pre-planned and all art materials are provided.   Most of the class time is spent with the children working on their art piece.

We appreciate you taking the time to volunteer...it makes a difference!  

If you have any questions, please contact Janet Dewan at janet.dewan@horizonclc.org.
