Labels for Education
What a wonderful opportunity to earn supplies for our school using the labels from every day products that you purchase for family use! All it takes is a little effort to remove the UPC label or provide the cap imprinted with the UPC label. This would be a great service project for your children. Send in your labels or caps from the following products. Once again, thank you for your support!
 
FREE BOOKS
Horton can earn free classroom books by saving Sunny D UPC labels from any size of product. Please send the UPC label to Mrs. Mayer of the media center. Once again, we appreciate your support. The free book promotion ends November 30th. Send all labels in by the 25th. Thank you!

HMS Helpers
We have two  volunteer  opportunities for Horton families: 1)  Saving newspapers for  Mrs. Wignall of 6th grade science. She has an  interesting project planned and needs lots and lots of newspapers. Please deliver them or send them to the media center for the next few weeks. 2) Saving magazines all year long. Most classrooms are in great need of magazines from time to time for class projects. Please collect, deliver/send them to the media center.
