Calendar of Events & Horn Translator E-Available

Green Calendar IconWe have an exciting school year ahead of us, Horn community!  

The Horn PTO has a proposed timeline/calendar for most events and activities released on our website under “PTO Events”. View the calendar timeline/overview here.   Dates may change from our initial proposed list, and our official calendar (found on this website) will always be accurate.  If you use an electronic calendar, you can sync from our shared PTO calendar  (see the “Add” button in our calendar widget) to have events appear on your personal calendar as well!

Also we have posted an updated copy of the “Horn Translator”. The Horn Translator is a cheat sheet to all things Horn. This guide provides an explanation of events, classroom procedures and many other important happenings around Horn.  When you find yourself scratching your head when your child comes home telling you it is time to ‘DEAR’—you can refer to this document and know exactly what it means. You can find the Horn Translator under “Parent Resources” menu and viewing the translator here.

The Horn PTO would like to invite you to our first event of the 2015-2016 school year – our Horn ice cream social on August 20th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm at Horn school.  This is a great opportunity to see the school, meet teachers, staff and other families and students that will be attending Horn during the 2015-2016 school year.

At the ice cream social, you will find out who your child’s teacher is and have an opportunity to meet your teacher and visit the class room.  There are sign up sheets in the classrooms to volunteer in various ways during this upcoming school year.

This year, you will also be able to visit tables in the Horn Multipurpose room representing the various programs at Horn – and of course ice cream!

We are excited to see you there!
