ORIENTATION GUIDES NEEDED
We are seeking to expand our group of fun, energetic, knowledgeable, and reliable 7ththrough 11thgrade students to serve as Orientation Guides to new students and families. An Orientation Guide’s primary goal is to introduce prospective students and families to Horizon Honors.  Orientation Guides serve as tour guides, shadow partners, info-session ambassadors, and more.  If you have a desire to help new students meet current students and teachers, answer questions, and facilitate discussions, then this could be a great role for you and a way to TAKE ACTION to support others.  Applications will be in the Secondary Office starting Monday, August 6th. The deadline to return applications is Tuesday, August 15thby 3:45 PM in the front office.  A parent signature is required on the application for submission.
