PLAN AHEAD - 8TH GRADE PROMOTION CEREMONY
It’s time to plan ahead because the transition to high school is a milestone in a student’s educational career.  Please join us as we celebrate our Middle School students’ promotion from 8th Grade. The ceremony will be held in the Larry Pieratt Activity Center on Friday, June 2nd at 6 p.m. Often students dress up for the occasion; however the Horizon Honors student dress code remains in effect. Girls must have shoulders straps at least 2” wide or smaller straps covered with a jacket or shrug while on campus. Wraps and shawls are not allowed. Shoes may not have open backs and are limited to a 2” heel height. All families will receive six admission tickets prior to the ceremony.  All persons entering the promotion ceremony must have a ticket so we can have enough seating for all families. The office has a waitlist for additional tickets.  We look forward to a fabulous celebration.

8TH GRADE BABY PHOTOS
As part of the annual 8th Grade Promotion Celebration we will have a slideshow featuring baby pictures of our 8th graders. Parents, that means we need your help! Please send a digital or scanned copy (jpeg or bitmap) of your little darling to pam.wagner@horizonclc.org by May 12th. Make sure the student’s full name is on the file. Toddler pictures will work. We are looking for a photo that captures your little one's personality. Please do not send original photos to the school.

ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL DAY SCHEDULE – TESTING – MARK YOUR CALENDAR
PLEASE NOTE: The schedule in last week's eblast was incorrect. Please read and update your calendars! Thank you!
In an effort to support our students to perform at their best, Horizon Honors is implementing some changes to our test taking procedures.  More will be shared as we get closer to the testing window, but one change that will impact all students is an alternative schedule we will be following for four days.  This schedule will allow us to test our students only in the morning blocks when they are most ready to perform, minimize the impact on instructional days, prepare middle school age students for computer based testing, review curriculum without disrupting the regular course curriculum, and allow for technology to be available for both testing and classroom use.  Please read each day carefully to understand how your schedule will be affected.
