Mary Chase’s Pulitzer Prize winning Harvey is the story of Elwood P. Dowd, who insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarrassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. The search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on everyone they’ve encountered.   This classic comedy is delightful for all ages.

Throughout the month of November, Horizon Honors Secondary School will be participating in Collect for Cures, a national campaign to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). We are joining over 27,000 schools across the nation to make a difference and raise as much money as we can to help find a cure for blood cancer! 
 
Each 3rd block class will have a Collect for Cures box and will compete to raise the most money through the month of November. You can get involved by putting money, your spare change, directly in the box in your classroom or donate by participating in one of our fundraisers throughout the month. Horizon Honors also has its own online giving page that students, parents and faculty can share with friends and family:   
http://events.lls.org/pages/az/Horizon-Honors-School-2018   
 
At the end of the month, the top fundraising 3rd block class will receive lunch catered by Olive Garden. The competition runs from November 1st through November 30th.
 
Thank you in advance for helping LLS to create a world without blood cancers! For more information on the Collect for Cures program, please visit http://www.studentseries.org/

PARENT INVOLVEMENT
PARENTS: DON'T MISS THIS!
Horizon Honors is thrilled to present SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age, a documentary about the biggest parenting issue of our time.

screenagers-poster.jpg

WHEN: November 16th, 2017
TIME: 6 to 8:30 PM
WHERE: Horizon Honors Multi-Purpose Room
PARENTS/GUARDIANS ONLY! 
COST: FREE! Limited space. 

Age-based discussions will be offered immediately after the screening.

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

SCREENAGERS addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time head on—depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to best navigate the digital world and provides practical resources to help them do it.
