Horton Beautification Day
Horton Beautification Work photoHorton Middle School PTSA recently partnered with Chatham Community Church to beautify the school campus. Chatham Community Church members volunteer both money and time twice a year to come out with new projects and help keep the campus looking great. This year the two organizations planted shrubs, flowers, roses and implemented a walkway to the flagpole. Trees were trimmed back that were obstructing the view of parents trying to get out onto the highway and volunteers put clear stain on all the picnic tables and benches. Horton Beautification Group photoThe turnout for the event was tremendous. Horton PTSA President, Jason Hartness remarks,   “The ability to come together with parents, teachers, students and outside volunteers really speaks to how much our community values our kids and their education. By beautifying the campus it gives the children pride in their school and that transitions to the classroom.”
