Community Helpers Week

The children at New Horizon Academy in Shorewood/Excelsior were learning about community helpers last week and had the opportunity to visit with both a firefighter and a police officer.

During the week of August 10th, the students at New Horizon Academy welcomed these community helpers with many smiles and many questions. The children were so thrilled to have them. They read the children stories and talked about what they do each and every day to keep our community safe.

“We believe it is important to instill at a young age the important role that public figures play in our community,” said Kelly Vogel, Director of New Horizon Academy in Shorewood/Excelsior. “It gives the children an opportunity to learn about the different roles that people play in our community and the responsibilities that go along with it.”

Summer Camp Reading Celebration

Children at New Horizon Academy Celebrate Reading Over 1.3 Million Minutes This Summer!
School-age children at more than 46 New Horizon Academy centers celebrated reading and logging 1,303,181 minutes as part of the summer 2015 Camp Discovery Book Club.
Throughout the summer each New Horizon Academy school-age classroom engaged in reading activities to help avoid the “summer slide.” The children were given opportunities to read in the classroom as well as opportunities to read at home.
For every 100 minutes that a child read, he or she would earn one “Book Buck,” which could be used to buy a variety of items at the end of the summer. Each child kept track of their minutes, as well as the classroom as a whole, and the results were astounding!
In celebration of their amazing effort to read this summer, children, teachers and directors gathered for a district-wide Reading Celebration on Thursday, August 13th. The celebration included DJ’s, dancing, games and prizes. The school-agers were very proud and thrilled to celebrate their reading success!
