Hawk Hour: Drama & Relay for Life

  • Hawk Hour is enrichment opportunity for students at Horizon Academy. This is a 30 minute period of extra learning - between their 1st and 2nd block classes (between 1st and 3rd period or 2nd and 4th period) each day. Students join clubs such as Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) or Drama Club/Relay for Life. Other students who need to work on assignments or make up credits from courses they did not pass in earlier years (reminder: If a student fails a course it must be re-taken before they can graduate Middle School) attend a "Study Hall" or online learning (PLATO) Hawk Hour. Many students whill choose to participate in a diverse collection of enrichment opportunities offered by the faculty members. 

    I will be offering Drama/Theater and Relay for Life (American Cancer Society).
