Dear Horbelt Parents:


The month of February is always a very busy one for the students of the Horbelt School. As you probably are aware, February marks both Black History Month and Presidents’ Day. Classroom teachers will be doing lessons in both of these areas with their students. Teachers are now intensifying the preparation of our 3rd/4th/5th grade students for the upcoming PARCC testing that will take place in March and May. More information about PARCC testing can be found at the bottom of this page under headlines.  


Report cards for the 2nd marking period will be issued February 10th; please check your child’s backpack when they come home that day. We will be scheduling out Awards Day shortly so look for forthcoming information that day as we recognize the achievements of our children.


Congratulations to Mrs. Dwyer who was selected by B98.5 for the School Spirit Award. This is given to a staff member who works to promote a positive school environment.   Well done Mrs. Dwyer!


The district will be closed on Monday, February 16th for Presidents’ Day Weekend. School will closed on Tuesday, February 17th for a Teachers Professional Development Day


Our Academic Press to become better readers continues in full swing! You have heard me mention that students are reading furiously! To date, our students have read over 900,000 minutes! Amazing, right? I am a believer in them reading our TWO Milloin minute mark this year. Please help us reach our goal by encouraging your kids to read at home.   It is a life skill they may not understand now, but they will definitely not regret later in life!
