Water Challenge:  The UNICEF club is urging everyone to participate in our Water Challenge Fundraiser! All donation proceedings will be used to fund a new water project in Burkina Faso, Kenya, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Rwanda or Uganda, and then The Water Project will post pictures and GPS coordinates of the project you helped build! Starting this week until the end of April, there will be 4 large water jugs placed in the front office, each pertaining to the different grade levels. You can drop off your change to help those in need!  The grade level that has the most amount of money at the end wins; but there’s a twist! You can “bomb” the other classes by putting paper currency in their jug. The amount of paper currency will then be subtracted from their coin total. The prize? Your grade level will get to completely drench teachers of their choosing with water balloons! So, set your sites on a target, and donate!


Student Council Officer Election:  Any student interested in running for a class officer or student council executive officer (juniors and seniors only) my pick up an application from Mrs. Kahlich TODAY Thursday, April 13.  Election videos will be due by Friday, April 21, and the election will take place on Tuesday, April 26.

NHS Table Tutors: Would you like to have a free tutor who has successfully navigated the Horizons workload? Come to the BQR on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to get immediate help, schedule an after school tutoring session (held in a high school teacher's classroom), or to find out more about secrets of success at Horizons. These friendly experienced tutors will be stationed at a table near check-in between 1:15 -1:45 pm. What a great resource - but only if you use it! 


Late Bus:  Clear Horizons provides a late bus that runs every Tuesday and Thursday at 4:45 PM.  The late bus will be in front of our school by 4:45 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday and typically departs within 10 minutes. The late bus will drop off in two locations: The East side of 45 at Clear Creek High School and on the West side of 45 at Brookside Intermediate. Students who are planning on riding the late bus must request a pass from the office. The request must be made for official business only (ie tutorials, a rehearsal, detention, etc.). A bus pass must be picked up before 1:00 p.m. on the day you want to ride (Tuesday or Thursday). No bus passes will be issued after lunch.  If you do not have a pass you will not be allowed to ride the bus.  If no one has picked up a late bus pass, the bus will be cancelled. Students, make sure that your parent/guardian knows that you are staying late and catching the late bus. The front office closes at 4:00 p.m.  When signing up for pass students must include the following:

1) Purpose – Why are you staying late?

2) Location from 3:30 – 5:00 – Where will you be?

3) Parent Permission – Did you let your parent know you were staying late?

The reason we must have this information is so that we can find you in case of an emergency.
