MONSTER BOOK FAIR: Reading is so much fun, it's SCARY!
Students may shop beginning Monday, September 21 through Friday, September 25, 2015!
All parents of any students planning on participating in any sport this school year are invited to the multipurpose room on Wednesday at 5PM. Mr. Blizzard will be discussing our athletic policies and expectations.
Boys soccer and girls softball tryout will be held on Wednesday after school until 5PM. All students must have a current physical on file. Physicals remain valid for one year.
We have received many requests for students to be allowed to walk after school. Please note that the walking form you were asked to fill out allows students to walk off campus to any destination. A new note does not need to be sent if a student is walking somewhere other than home. Please note that we cannot ensure that students are walking directly home
Author and Illustrator Don Tate will be visiting Horton this Wednesday to present his book The Remarkable Story of George Moses Horton. George Moses Horton was a slave whose poetry was first published in 1828, while he was enslaved. Horton Middle School was named after this remarkable man. Please feel free to stop in and hear from Mr. Tate and purchase his book. Mr. Tate's presentation for sixth grade will be in the multi-purpose room at 12:45 and he will be speaking to the fifth grade at 1:45. Hope to see you then!
Please contact Paula at email@example.com to claim a spot or if you have questions.
Horton Middle School was selected to send a team of students to a Student Leadership Institute run by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. Over 100 schools applied and 26 were selected from elementary, middle and high schools across the state.
