Principal's Message

   Veronica Candelaria, Principal


Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year, I am excited and honored to be the Principal at Horizon Middle School where we will strive to always go above and beyond…excellence. Our mission is for all our students to become productive citizens who are life-long learners that are college and career ready for the 21st century.

We begin this exciting school year with our new AVID program, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. AVID campus wide will promote college readiness for all our students. Throughout the school year, our students will be learning in depth note taking through Cornell Notes and organization skills. We encourage you to come out and volunteer at our campus to see all the great things your children are doing in class. In addition, we welcome you to come out and support your children in our Athletic and Fine Arts events, which are throughout the school year.

I look forward to getting to know you and your children throughout the school year.  Our Horizon Middle School team is committed to helping all our students succeed each day. Working together and maintaining a true partnership with our parents as well as the community will ensure that our students accomplish great success. I would like to encourage you to become a volunteer at our campus and become part of the HMS team.

Finally, we will continue to promote our Hawk Core Values of respect, responsibility and safety. Thank you in advance for your support and for ensuring that your child attends school every day. If you have any questions or need to reach me please call me at 926-4700.


Mrs. Candelaria, Principal
