Today's Quote:


In every class, with the impending storm, we decided to go old school and take notes so we can try to get caught up. That will continue today just in case we have another storm. 6th-grade dove into the notes on atmosphere, 7th grade began notes over the Cell Theory using a funny little video The Wacky World of The Cell Theory. 8th grade started notes over the properties of matter but had to go back for a primer on the Periodic Table of elements.

Over the weekend, students who have already left Horizon came bac to help us get our gardens back in order after hurricane Matthew.

The only damage we had on the farm was the shade cloth being torn loose in our shade house and a door that was tied shut, breaking it's cord and blowing open. We were extremely fortunate that we managed to get the plastic off the greenhouses before the winds hit.According to our weather computer on the farm we received winds gusts of 61 mph.

Brain bender:

If a grandfather clock takes five seconds to strike 6 o'├žlock, how many seconds will it take to strike 12 o'├žlock? Why?


(This should be written in your planner every day)
