High School Social Events
Homecoming is held in the fall and provides an opportunity to recognize our alumni and, at the same time, provide our current students with a special social event. This week consists of various class competitions, dress-up days, a pep rally, a football game and an activity after the game.
Each fall Horizon celebrates a Harvest Party. This event takes place at a local farm and provides the school a chance to enjoy the many offerings of the fall. Corn mazes, delicious food, and other activities are provided.
12 Days of Christmas
During the month of December Horizon has a special activity leading up to Christmas break. These include dress up days, cookie decorating, a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus and many others. At the conclusion of the 12 days of Christmas our students are encouraged to participate in our “Christmas all Nighter”. This event begins on the Thursday evening before school gets out and concludes at the end of the school day on Friday.
This is a special “themed” evening designed to allow the students of HCHS to dress up and participate in a special evening just for them. The Court of Hearts will be honored at this event along with entertainment and dessert.
Arguably the most popular day of the year is our annual Color Wars. Grade levels compete against one another in a variety of events designed to highlight the abilities of all the students in the school. Class presidents work with their classmates to sign up students in the areas they feel are their strongest in events like volleyball, painting, science experiments, spelling bees, and many more. Each year involves over 30 different events and each event is scored. At the conclusion only one class can be crowned Champion of Color Wars.
Throughout the year Horizon holds Recognition Assemblies. These are our chance to celebrate the accomplishments of our students in the classroom, on the sports fields, and through extracurricular activities. Horizon is filled with amazing students that use their gifts to glorify God’s kingdom. These assemblies are our chance to thank them for using these gifts.
