   Do you know what’s going on in Mrs.
   Henkel’s class? Well this week they are
   doing lots of spider projects and reading
   spider books about daddy long legs,
   poisonous spiders and different types of
   spider webs. They love to read and
   write. Right now they are reading a
   book called I Hate First Grade. The
   book is about a kindergartner who is
   going into first grade and thinks that it
   is going to be horrible. Then she
   realizes she really likes it. They all are
   doing well in writing and Mrs. Henkel
   really likes to see their improvement.
   Even though she has taught                                          Mrs Henkel's First Grade Class
   kindergartners and 2nd graders, she
   really loves to teach first grade.

Do you know what the 5k class is working on? They are working on learning color words, and
making rainbows. Mrs. Eerinisse’s class went to the fire department! They’re planning to go to the
golden garden to see pumpkins and maybe even decorate them! Cool! They’re also going to pick a tree
and learn about them. Mrs. Eernisse has taught for ten years! She also said that she likes to teach funny
songs and many games! She is teaching her current students a math game called top it. That’s what’s

         I interviewed Mrs.Oty and she is working on the book fair. She has been working for the
      book fair for 4 years. Can you believe that? The people she works with are really nice she
      said. Do you know how many people she works with in the year just for the book fair? At
      least 30 to 40 people. Why do we do the book fair? Well, we do it because how many books
      we sell equals how many books we get to earn for the school. If you are wondering what
      types of books there are? There are chapter books all the way down to easy picture books.
      Last but not least if you want to know some stuff about her. She loves baseball. It is her
      favorite sport. Her hobby is reading and loves to hang out with her son.
         Now here is some stuff about the fall fest. Do you know what the fall fest is? I do. It is a
      big party for families and friends to get together and have fun. There is music, treats,
      arts&crafts, games and a food drive. The Fall Fest is October 28th. The main fundraiser for
      Horizon this year was a Walk-a-Thon. All the students walked on the high school track
      together. We also ate on the field. We earned over 7,000 dollars for school field-trips and
      assemblies. There were prizes and an ice cream social. It was tons of fun.

                                                       years. She loves kids and likes working with

    Have you seen Mrs. Semph, Mrs. Wheeler, Mrs. Martin, Mrs. Nicholas, and Mr.Sedlacek around the school?
Well, I have. I didn’t recognize them at first, but now since it’s been 2 months they’re so easy to spot!
    Let’s meet Mrs. Semph. She is our new librarian. She has been with the district for 35 years. She likes to
read, walk, and garden. The number of classes she has in a week differs on the occasion. Her favorite thing
about Horizon is the people. She has taught or teaches at Parkview, Fairview, Cascade, and Parnell.
