“Dear Children’s House Friends & Family,

We are so pleased to be associated with your fine school. It has been decades of Horizon “Our Day” and the tradition grows. Overhearing DiAnn tell the story of how Horizon became associated with the Children’s House keeps the tradition alive in story. Seeing the parents, grandparents, children and their guides enthuse about books brings all of us here great joy. Keep up your good work. 

We would like to express a special welcome to Compass Junior High as our new neighbors downtown."
