CELEBRATE R.A.K. WEEK!
unnamed (1)
RAK stands for Random Acts of Kindness.  Next week is Random Acts of Kindness week and all students can participate in it. The idea of RAK encourages students to be kind by having students try to do as many random acts of kindness as they can.  Horizon Honors celebrates Random Acts of Kindness week because it helps to show that we are a NO PLACE FOR HATE school.  Guess what?  Your students already started their acts of kindness by helping to decorate Pecos Senior Center for their Valentine's Celebration!  For more information and resources please visit this website: www.randomactsofkindness.org.
