Horton Middle School Angel Tree
Our Angel Tree is now set up in the front office and we are encouraging families, community members and staff to help out a student over the holidays. Here’s how our Angel Tree will work this year:
To help a student, please stop by the office and take an Angel Tree card from the tree, fill out the information on the card, and place it in the gift- wrapped box on the table. Along with the card that you fill out will be a second card that you can take with you and return it with your gift card to Ms. Kidd in the office by December 12.
We recommend that you purchase your gift card from a local Wal-Mart store and although we will not require a specific amount on the gift card, we plan to give each student a total of $40. Our school staff will shop for any families who may have a transportation problem getting to and from Wal-Mart. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Kidd in the front office.
Interested 7th & 8th graders have applied for admission and selected students will be honored for scholarship, leadership, citizenship, character and service and will join our largest campus organization. Congratulations to the new and old members for their commitment to making the world a better place. Look for information on upcoming canned food drives, relay for life and other fundraisers and service activities planned for this year.
Horton Middle School is always in need of parent and community volunteers to assist in various tasks such as Field Trips, Teacher/Media Assistants and Test Proctoring. We always appreciate your willingness to help and value your time and efforts. Before you choose to volunteer, please remember to complete the VOLUNTEER APPROVAL PROCESS implemented by the Board of Education.
If you completed the volunteer application last year, it must be renewed this year also....The process for renewal is simple and easy but must be completed. Click on the link below for the original volunteer process and the renewal process.
Thank you in advance for your willingness to play such an important part in our school community
Spend some volunteer time at the PTSA Thrift Shop.
Rising 7th graders can volunteer 100 thrift store hours for a FREE Washington DC trip in the 8th grade. 7th Graders can start earning hours as of July 1, 2014 towards their trip.
You can volunteer an additional 100 hours for a parent/guardian to attend the trip also.
ALL volunteers can pick whom your volunteer hours will benefit: your teacher, a club, athletics, the DC trip, the media center.....
You can volunteer by emptying a drop box or attending a work group.
You get to double your Thrift Shop volunteer hours during the summer!
