    Dear Horizon Community Middle School Families,

    As our CMAS testing window comes to a close, I am excited to share that our students have done an amazing job! Our participation rate is up, and students worked very hard on the test. We end today with some celebrations and fun, as we want to say a big THANK YOU and CONGRATS to our student body. Thank you to our community as well for supporting our efforts.

    And don’t forget that our spring musical is tonight and tomorrow at 6:30pm (doors open at 6pm). Check out our talented cast and crew in the production of The Little Mermaid Jr. You can purchase tickets HERE

    Please see additional information below, and have a great weekend!

    Athletics & Activities Jamboree

    We will be celebrating all of our students who participated in athletics and activities with a certificate and snack after school on Thursday, May 9th. While this will not be a formal recognition ceremony, it will be a chance for students to spend time together and reflect on the year. Please contact Kerri Benzel, Activities Director, at kbenzel@cherrycreekschools.org with questions.


    End of the Year Dates & Information for 8th Grade Families

    • May 13th – 8th Grade Awards Ceremony at SHHS*
    • May 22nd – 8th Grade Dance
    • May 23rd – Last Day for 8th Grade and Field Trip to Movie Tavern
    • May 24th – Last Day for 6th and 7th Grades (1/2 day)


    *The 8th Grade Awards Ceremony is not a graduation/continuation event. Cherry Creek Middle Schools do not hold graduation ceremonies for 8th grade students. Students (and families) who will be recognized with an award at the 8th Grade Awards Ceremony will receive an individual invitation in early May.


    8th Grade Families: We will be having lots of fun celebrating our 8th graders in May. With this fun comes the expectation that student behavior and attendance is excellent as we finish the year. Students who engage in inappropriate behaviors, students who miss class, and students who are frequently late to class may not be invited to certain celebrations as a result.

    National Teacher Appreciation Week

    You are invited to join our school and the entire Cherry Creek School District to say “Thank you, Teachers!” during national Teacher Appreciation Week, May 6-10. During this nationwide celebration, students, parents, and communities across the country will show their gratitude to the educators who help our children learn, grow, achieve, and succeed.


    The Cherry Creek School District invites you to show your support for our teachers by taking a photo of your student holding a thank you sign or message, or recording a short video of them thanking their teacher or describing what’s special about their teacher. Then upload your photo or video by April 30 to https://trst.in/HKjYzI. CCSD will share the photos and videos on the CCSD Facebook and Instagram pages during Teacher Appreciation Week.


    You can also nominate a teacher for the chance to throw out the first pitch at the May 10 Colorado Rockies vs. the Texas Rangers game at Coors Field! The selected teacher will also receive five free tickets to the game. Submit your nomination here by April 26.  The “Teacher First Pitch Event” is sponsored by Westerra Credit Union and the Colorado Rockies.
