2016-17 NHA Yearbook Sponsorship

2016-17 NHA Yearbook Sponsorship

Do you remember how excited you and your classmates were when your school yearbooks arrived?

Yearbooks hold images and information of all of the events and people who made your years in school special. Yearbooks capture memories frozen in time, events that happened, faces that inevitably change and memories that may only be remembered again by opening the cover. Yearbooks have a way of connecting students, families and entire school communities in ways that few other projects can. They never go out of style and will always be cherished for years to come.

Parents get just as excited about the yearbook as students do — sometimes more. They enjoy seeing how childhood friends have changed. They want to remember their child’s school years. The first look at a yearbook is fun and exciting, often marking the end of a school year and a summer of freedom. But the moment a yearbook is opened years later, a flood of all types of memories will resurface.

Our hope is to provide our students with those very same feelings and memories. In many cases, this is something that their families have never had the joy of experiencing!

This will be the very first year that a yearbook is made available to students at New Horizons Academy. Our goal is to raise funds through sponsors in order to keep the costs of the yearbooks lower, so that more students and their families will be able to afford one.

We invite you to consider being a sponsor of this very special project!

NHA Classroom Toy Drive

NHA Classroom Toy Drive

We’re asked all the time for simple ways that families can help support our students and their classrooms.

One such option that is often overlooked, yet incredibly important, is the need for sensory toys that can be used to support the interventions and therapies being provided.

Every child benefits from having toys to play with. Toys help a child develop motor skills, creativity, social skills and other things they will need for growth and development. But for a child with autism or other special needs, toys play an even more vital role. Sensory toys help children with special needs gain a measure of control over their environment. Sensory toys for autism development are important because they help the child to learn problem-solving skills, something that many children with autism struggle to do. What may look like simple play with sensory toys for children with special needs is actually the process of education in action.

Having the right kind of sensory toys for autism education is very important to the development of the children in the classroom. Millions of children are affected by some kind of special need or disability that affects their ability to learn in a conventional way. Because of that, NHA incorporates various sensory related toys into our classrooms for special needs students.

We are holding a classroom toy drive to help collect toys so our kids can play! You can help make Christmas a little merrier for our kids and their classrooms.

Thank you so much for making a difference at our school.

Merry Christmas!

My Son’s Progress Has Exceeded my Expectations

My Son’s Progress Has Exceeded my Expectations

Moving here so that my son could attend New Horizons Academy was the best decision I could have made. His progress has exceeded my expectations. He has learned to try more and to communicate his needs and has blossomed from the praise and encouragement. Overall I have a first grader who is happy and progressing. What more could a parent ask for? Thank you for all that you do!
