Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome Back! We are incredibly excited to begin our Eighth year here at Horizon Science Academy of Lorain! This promises to be a year filled with opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before! We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and some exciting extracurricular clubs and activities certain to encourage our Cyclones to be involved and stay connected!
During the 2016-17 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our foundation of good work, honored traditions, and continued excellence in education. Our vision is one that involves changing the trajectory of students’ lives and we believe it is accomplished in three ways:
- By challenging our students through a rigorous STEM-focused education that focuses on 21st century skills.
- By fostering a positive school culture with caring teachers that nurture students through impactful relationships.
- By building partnerships with community organizations, businesses, and parents/ guardians to help meet the needs of all our students.
Furthermore, we extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want . . . we need . . . and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your active participation is essential to the success of your child.
Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at HSA Lorain. It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.
Again, we welcome you to Horizon and to our wonderful learning community. It is, indeed, a place where opportunities flourish and our teachers make an impact! Here’s to a phenomenal new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!
