Horizon Middle School offers a Renaissance program to celebrate student achievement throughout the school year. The Jostens Renaissance program gives staff the power to change our school environment. Our goal is boost academics, participation and engagement within our school with excitement, appreciation and energy in celebrating the achievements of our students.
Through Renaissance we will use real world strategies of rewarding, recognizing, respecting and reinforcing excellence and improvements in our students and teachers. Our goal is to recognize every student for something great this year! There will be times throughout the school year where whole classes or groups of students are recognized and rewarded for things such as: all students in class on time, all students having homework completed, and any other things we come up with to recognize students. Students will also be working towards levels each quarter and will earn incentives during and after the level is reached. Students who reach a level will receive special invites to pep rallies and special events, we often invite parents to these as well. Students can earn free admission to games and dances by reaching a level. Free T shirts, lanyards and other incentives will entice and engage your child throughout the school year!
The levels for achievement are included below. Encourage and touch base with your child frequently to celebrate their accomplishments!
