Our season end concert and celebration was a terrific way to finish the program! Students performed renditions of “We Will Rock You” on strings and “Jaws” on brass. Each class presented skits from their Project Based Learning topics. Everyone enjoyed seeing a slideshow of pictures from student field trips, classroom activities and lessons throughout the program.
We also held our first Horizons graduation, marking a big milestone since our program started at DCD in 2009. Our founding class of eighth graders reminisced about their early days at Horizons and shared heartfelt thoughts about what Horizons means to them. Chica Project Founder Nurys Camargo imparted her wisdom and inspiration on how to succeed in high school and beyond. Executive Director Meredith Laban thanked students and parents for their commitment and for trusting us. To say we are proud of our graduates would be an understatement. We’re glad we will be working with our students through their high school years. We know they will do so well and can’t wait to see what they do next!
Thanks everyone, it’s been a fantastic summer!
Meredith Laban, Executive Director
