Well, another big win for Team Unified over the “Teacher Creatures” yesterday at lunch in the gym. This time Team Unified got up big early on and then clamped down on defense as the teachers put together a late charge to try and tie the game. We hope everyone enjoys the upcoming break and look forward to Team Unified “Leaders” vs the Horton “Staff” sometime in the coming weeks.

Horton Students and Athletes:
With the approach of spring, several of the Horton Wellness committee members are urging you to clean out those dresser drawers and closets for gently used or near new like clothing and footwear that doesn’t quite fit, you don’t like the color or it’s just collecting dust. The athletic department will oversee a gym dropoff in the gym classroom of items no longer wanted or needed that are looking to find a new home.
Please feel free to stop by in the morning, recess or lunch breaks to drop items off that you no longer have use for. Intimidated by the gym and all the bouncing balls flying around, feel free to also stop by Ms. MacDonald’s room in the yellow wing (Science Department) for quieter and more discreet visits.
Any student who is planning to go to Acadia next year or the year after, and would like to apply for one of the Student Assistant jobs in the university library, should see Mrs. Jacquard as soon as possible.
