Want to know how to get involved?
The PTO is a well-oiled machine, but we always, always, always have a need for volunteers and welcome new ideas! Whether you have just a little time to give or several hours, we can find a place for you to help make a difference for our school. The PTO is simply a group of parents who are going the extra mile to help make Horizon Elementary an awesome place to go to school! We do not have a clique nor do we exclude anyone who is willing to dedicate some time and effort. The best way to connect and get to know other Horizon families is to come to PTO meetings and PTO sponsored
school events. Feel free to email us if you have any questions. We're here to help and we want YOU to join us!! Read below for some ways you can connect at Horizon...
Anyone who would like to volunteer at a PHM school must first complete two forms and turn them in to the school office. CLICK HERE to access the Volunteer Intake Form and the Permission Form for a Criminal Background Check on the PHM website.
Volunteer for a PTO event or activity...
We have so many things going on throughout the year, and as the saying goes, "Many hands make light work." We typically need folks to help at the school, but there are also opportunities to send in items to help support various events.
Check out our Events & Activities page for a detailed list. When you see something that interests you, send us an email through our contact form or directly to HorizoninGrangerPTO@gmail.com.
Volunteer in the Classroom...
Horizon teachers welcome and appreciate help in the classroom. You can connect with the teacher and find out ways to help at information night at the start of the school year, or by contacting your child's teacher by email or phone any time throughout the year.
