Here is the announcement of our school grade from our principal, Mrs. Amy Heiser-Meyers Ed.S.
Dear Well-Deserving Horizons Hawks:
We DID IT…for the second year in a row Horizons’ school grade is a “B”!!!! The outside banner gets to stay up…YAY!!! We proved Horizons is not some “one-year hit school grade wonder”…we are in it to win it!!! Keep in mind in 16-17 18 PCSB elementary schools (including K-8) earned a grade of “B”. For this year 17-18 only 9/18 schools maintained that grade of “B”. Horizons is one of the schools that maintained.
I want to commend everyone’s hard work and dedication to our students and to each other. I am proud to report that for the 2nd year in a row we are the HIGHEST performing TRADITIONAL elementary school on the east side of Polk County. We ROCK the RIDGE! Actually, only one magnet school and one charter school is outperforming us, and their schools are staffed through application process, not a school zone. Again, I am so proud of you all!
Horizons’ Leadership team is already planning strategies for next year to maintain our proficiency and to move towards acquiring the “A”. We know that there is still hard work ahead of us, and I know we will persevere during that journey. For now, savor this moment of celebration. Rejuvenate your internal batteries this summer so you are refreshed upon returning. On behalf of myself, Micah, Stacy, & BJ we are humbled to work alongside such a fine faculty of educators. J
