Book Fair Coming!
The Scholastic Book Fair will be at Horton from October 14th through the 16th. Students will shop with their Language Arts teacher between the hours of 8 AM and †2:45 PM....

If your schedule permits, please email slmayer@chatham.k12.nc.us with the days and hours you are able to help. Thank you.
Volunteer Approval Process
Dear Parents and Members of the community,

Horton Middle School is always in need of parent and community volunteers to assist in various tasks such as Field Trips, Teacher/Media Assistants and Test Proctoring. We always appreciate your willingness to help and value your time and efforts. Before you choose to volunteer, please remember to complete the VOLUNTEER APPROVAL PROCESS implemented by the Board of Education.

If you completed the volunteer application last year, it must be renewed this year also....The process for renewal is simple and easy but must be completed. Click on the link below for the original volunteer process and the renewal process.†

Thank you in advance for your willingness to play such an important part in our school community

Dear Horton Families,

If your son/daughter is trying out for a fall sport, they have to have a physical turned into the office/athletic director by September 8th. Physicals are good for one year only. So if your son/daughter had their physical done on September 21st, 2013 their physical is still good up until September 21st, 2014. With that being said, you will still need an-up-to date physical done after the one-year physical is out of date. That means that your son/daughter will be unable to participate in practice or any afterschool sports until the physical is up to date. Again the cut-off date to have your son/daughterís physical turned into the office/athletic director is September 8th.

Volunteer your Time
Help yourself and Horton this school year!
