Principal's Message for December

December 1, 2017

Dear Parents and Students,

Happy holidays from the DECC/New Horizons Staff!  December is upon us and the hustle and bustle is beginning.  Our students and staff did a wonderful job representing our schools at the Veterans Day Parade on Monday, November 13. Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who came out to participate and honor our veterans. 

We are still looking for parents to volunteer at our “Saturday Night Lights” fundraiser in January. If you are interested in helping please see your child’s teacher for more information.  

The day for our School Advisory Council/Boosters meeting has changed to the first Thursday of each month. Please consider joining us for our next meeting at New Horizons at 5:00 pm, on December 7th.

Thank you to our wonderful parents, students and staff! The Krispy Kreme Donut sale was a tremendous success! We will be recognizing the top sellers,

Dates to remember!
