Join us for Horn’s Fourth Annual International Night

Our Community Building Event for October is our always highly anticipated Horn International Night! Your family may partipate by hosting a table and presenting a country that is important to you. It may be part of your heritage, where you are from or even a country that is simply important to your family! As a host you will set up a table with artifacts and food samples (if you wish!) and share them with our Horn families. If your family prefers to attend only you don’t need to do anything–just show up! The event will take place Wednesday, October 21 from 6:00-7:30 at Horn School. You may sign up to participate electronically here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c044da9a92caa8-international
or on the paper sign up that comes with your child. The night will culminate in the gym with our fashion show and apple pie drawings beginning at 7:00!  We hope to see ALL of our Horn families there!

PTO Funds Visit from Dancing Drums

IMG_0717During the second week of September, Dancing Drums visited Horn school for some hands on drumming fun!  The PTO paid $750 to bring this experience to our students.  Below you will find videos and photos of the event.  Ask your child to tell you more!

This is just one example of the many enrichment opportunities our PTO funds for Horn students.   Our fall fund drive is still active.  A direct donation to our school means 100% of funds reach Horn students.   Please consider a donation today!
