Basketball Tournament for a Cause
Last Tuesday Mr. Tate organized a 3-on-3 basketball tournament during elective periods. The elective teacher collected money from the students who wanted to come to the gym and watch the competition. The students were able to raise $300 which was donated to a needy family. The family was very happy to receive such a thoughtful gift just in time for the holidays. Mr. Tate and the staff that assisted in the tournament will be hosting a similar event in December. Stay tuned for details
Special thanks to Mr. Tate and all of the staff who assisted in monitoring students during this event!
Choir Performance for Peace
In the years 2013-2016, the Columbus Police killed 24 people, 20 of them Black. According to CBS Interactive, heroin is killing at least 23 Ohioans every week. Across the country and abroad many atrocities are being committed against human kind. Students at Horizon Science Academy Middle School Choir are striving to spread peace and love through song beginning with an amazing concert this past Wednesday the 29th.
The students have not stopped there! They are encouraging everyone to please support their music video project called Calling for Peace. The lyrics say, "Stop all the killing in the streets, drugs and violence must cease, we are the voice of the children calling for peace." Please support the HSAMS Choir as they continue to make a difference in their community. You can find the GoFundMe page
to donate to an amazing cause.
Thank you Mr. Spottswood & Choir for the amazing performance and Ms. Rogers, Mrs. Reddy, and Mrs. Jama for you tremendous help. Most of all special thanks to the admin team!
