No Place for Hate Spotlight
This week the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) featured our school in their Arizona Education Updates:

We would like to spotlight Arizona’s Horizon Honors Elementary School. In addition to their three required No Place For Hate® activities, Horizon Honors kept up their momentum with an additional activity!

Throughout the week, K-6 students participated in discussion, revisited their promises to respect their peers, and celebrated their commitment to NPFH during their morning meetings, followed by working together to create the banner pictured above.

The design and messaging of the banner was student-led, and is being displayed in the school's common gathering area.

Keep up the excellent work, Horizon Honors Elementary!
The Wizard of Oz
By L.Frank Baum
With Music and Lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg
Background Music by Herbert Stothart

The Wizard of Oz is a beautiful musical based on the classic movie by L.Frank Baum, adapted for the stage by John Kane for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Come out to celebrate the hard work of both Horizon Honors Elementary and Secondary School students as they tell this magical story. The musical explores the journey of Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, as she is swept away by a tornado that takes her to the fantastical land of Oz. While there she meets Glinda the Good Witch, the Munchkins, and her new best friends, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Lion. Together they face down the Wicked Witch of the West in order to get what each of them needs from the mighty Wizard of Oz. Ultimately they learn that they were complete all along and that there is truly no place like home. This enduring musical is a story of friendship, family, and understanding the character each of us possesses to use to help one another. Presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Tams-Witmark LLC., www.concordtheatricals.com.
