Horizons at Harley 2015 Begins!
Summer 2015 has begun! Horizons teachers and students arrived at Harley ready and excited for six weeks of learning and fun. Our 21st year is already off to a great start!
“New Book Fridays” Initiative
Through New Book Fridays, all students receive a new book to take home and share with their families. Each week, teachers introduce a grade-specific book to students with directions for the weekend, and follow up on the book the next week. This program-wide initiative gives students opportunities to share with the entire Horizons community!
Food Backpack Fridays
In cooperation with FoodLink, Horizons at Harley is happy to announce Food Backpack Fridays! Each backpack bag weighs around 5-6 pounds and comes in a plastic grocery bag. The menu for each week’s bag includes fruits, vegetables, dairy, grain, protein, one “meal” item, and snacks. Find more information at www.horizonsatharley.org/for-parents/.
2015 Dates and Theme!
Horizons at Harley is happy to announce our summer 2015 program will run from June 30th through August 6th 2015, with the overall theme of “Growing as Readers …Growing as Leaders.” This summer’s program overall theme will place strong emphasis on leadership development at all grade levels.
RULER Approach to Social and Emotional Learning
Through Project “RULE Yourself” we intend to give kindergarten through 8th grade students practical skills and tools of conflict resolution with a complimentary social and emotional literacy component that teaches them to more readily identify, articulate, and form strategies to address the emotional states in which they find themselves.
