ANIMAL WELFARE DRIVE
Dear Horizon Honors,
A former Elementary Student Council member had the idea to start an animal drive and collect donations for animals in need. Student Council considered this and we would like to follow through with this idea. The Arizona Animal Welfare League is an organization that collects donations and items to care for each individual animal within the shelter. We will be accepting donations and appreciate everything! You CAN donate: disposable gloves, Simple Green, Ziplock bags, large bird toys, 6ft. Nylon leashes, Sporn Nylon/Mesh Non-Pulling Dog Harness (all sizes), durable rubber dog toys (Kong, Westpaw, Planet Dog etc), pens, sharpies, Dry Erase Markers, scotch tape, 9 oz. paper/plastic cups, copy paper (color or white), "Forever" postage stamps, paper towels. We will NOT be able to accept FOOD. Click HERE to view the website and learn more about the organization and what you can donate.
Thank you and please donate, 
Your Elementary Student Council

REMINDER: CALENDAR CHANGES
Due to the school closures in April, the Horizon Honors Elementary School calendar will be extended by two instructional days. Please reference the following calendars for up-to-date school and event information:
Horizon Honors School Year Calendar: https://www.horizonclc.org/resources/2017-2018calendar
Horizon Honors Elementary School Events: http://www.horizonhonorselementary.org/calendar

NOTE:  Horizon Honors Secondary School (Grades 7-12) will remain on the original calendar, as there were no school closures.  

Horizon Honors Elementary School Notable Calendar Updates:
Regular Instructional Full Days:
Wednesday, June 6 & Thursday, June 7

Finals/Early Release Days:
Friday, June 8 & Monday, June 11

Last Day of School:
Monday, June 11

Individual Learning Plan Conferences (NO SCHOOL):
Tuesday, June 12

The school's charter agreement requires Horizon Honors Elementary School to provide 180 instructional days each school year. The school is not allowed to use overage of required instructional minutes to makeup for school days lost during the April school closures. You may hear that other schools and districts are using instructional minutes to makeup time for closures, but our school's charter does not allow for that flexibility. The school may request an exception directly from Arizona Department of Education Superintendent Diane Douglas. However, the process could be lengthy and is not guaranteed. We know families cannot wait for this vital information, so we will not be pursuing an exception. 

We understand that the extension of the school year may impede on your previously scheduled summer plans. If you have a conflict and your child will not be able to attend the last two days of school, please contact our attendance office at attendance@horizonclc.org with any absence details, as well as your child's teachers, so arrangements can be made as soon as possible to accommodate individual situations.
