  • Show Your Pride!

    Dear 8th Grade Parents and Guardians,

    This year, the Horton Middle School Pride Yearbook Staff would like to invite you to share your pride. Show your pride in your children by purchasing 1/8th of a page in the 2017 yearbook to congratulate them on their graduation from 8th grade. In your space, you may submit a baby or childhood photo of your student and/or write a special message for your child or the graduating class. What an excellent way to show your pride in your child’s accomplishment!

    Please keep this a secret, as we would like it to be a surprise for our 8th graders.

    Purchase your space today by completing the form found here, and returning it to the school’s front office in an envelope addressed to Mrs. Zerbs with a check for $20 made payable to Horton Middle School. You may also submit a small photo to be included in your space by emailing the photo as an attachment to Mrs. Zerbs at mlzerbs@chatham.k12.nc.us. Please use the subject line “8th Grade Tribute Photo – (Your child’s name),” and submit your photo the same day as your payment.

    Also, if you have not yet purchased your child’s yearbook, there is still time to buy. If you would like to place an order, please return the form that was sent home with your child or pick up an order form from the front office. Checks for yearbook purchases (made payable to Horton Middle School) may be dropped off for Mrs. Zerbs in the front office or sent via your child to Mrs. Zerbs during homeroom.

    Please send your order forms and checks for 8th grade tributes together in order to ensure your order is complete. All checks and order forms are due to Mrs. Zerbs no later than Friday, March 24, 2017. Orders received after this date will be returned to parents due to yearbook submission deadlines.

    Thank you so much for your continued support of The Pride.

    Mrs. Zerbs Yearbook Adviser

    PS - Grandparents and other family members may purchase a space as well! Please submit only one order on each order form. No more than 2 submissions will be accepted for each child.
