DEDICATED TO CREATING ACTIVE LEARNERS
The JOI Club turned the HMS gym into a Christmas wonderland Dec. 8. for its annual day of service.
The Horizon Middle School student body gathered in the gym to hear an emotional story about overcoming a rough childhood, enduring abusive parents, entering foster care and being adopted. On Nov. 27 HMS students had the rare opportunity to listen to punk rock musician, motivational speaker and kindness promoter, Davey Muise.
If a D49 student needed something fun to do during summer break, all they had to do was ask someone in, of all departments, nutrition services. Michelle Suggs and Sophie Bettendorf made that part of their commitment to the D49 summer meal program, which also made them Fantastic 49 honorees for October.
Seventeen D49 teachers received accolades from principals, and recommendations from students and parents to prompt selection as their school’s Teacher of the Year.

Greetings Horizon Middle School Families,
A fire alarm was activated this morning at approximately 9:28 a.m. HMS administrators immediately evacuated the school. All students moved quickly and safely out of the building while our partners at the Cimarron Hills Fire Department dispatched a crew to HMS.
CHFD searched the school and gave the all clear to return to normal activities. Students returned to the building to continue their day at HMS at 9:41 a.m., approximately 13 minutes after the initial alarm. There was no active fire and no threat to students or staff. HMS security discovered the cover of a smoke detector was damaged which caused the alarm to sound. HMS administrators are looking into how the detector was damaged.
D49 thanks our partners at the Cimarron Hills Fire Department and encourages all of our staff, students and families to stay alert for anything unusual. D49 will continue to be proactive and partner with first responders to ensure a safe learning environment awaits every District 49 learner.

Starting May 1, student accounts must be funded to purchase meals. No students will be allowed to charge additional debt to their meal account. While District 49 often affords flexibility for young children in its elementary schools, each school year must end with all accounts current.
At Horizon Middle School we strive to develop culturally responsible leaders, learners, and thinkers who have the desire to excel as individuals and engage in the global community.
