HMS Visit

5th Grade Families,
We are excited to welcome current 5th graders to the Horizon Panther family.  Middle School is a time of transition, growth, and exploration for students.  Whether you are new to Horizon, or have had previous children attend, I am confident that we have an established school environment focused on the growth and preparation of all students.   
In order to get all 5th grade students into the building, we are inviting each school to make a trip to Horizon.  In early March.  Each school will be coming to Horizon for a tour and lunch.  During the trip students will be led on a school tour by our student WEB leaders, we will give them their first Horizon Panther t-shirt, and they will eat lunch in the cafeteria.  It will be a quick two-hour visit, but we want your student to begin to feel comfortable as the transition to middle school begins.  
The schedule for school visits is below:
Springs Ranch - Tuesday, March 8th
Remington - Wednesday, March 9th
Evans - Thursday, March 10th
*all visits are scheduled from 11:00 - 1:00
In the past we have held a 5th grade night; however, the turnout has not been high, and pre-covid we tried this school visit model with all of the elementary schools.  It went well, and we decided to continue in this model.  If you, as a parent, have any questions or want to visit Horizon as well, you can do that anytime by contacting the front office at 495-5210.  
Additionally, we will have back to school registration in mid/late July for all students (please watch for information on dates and times).  We will also hold our Open House in late July, prior to the 1st day of school, which will give you and your student another opportunity to be in the building and meet teachers prior to school starting.
Please let us know if you have any questions about Horizon and we look forward to meeting our new Panthers.
