Ways to Help

We understand that in today's busy world juggling kids and work leaves little time for anything else. We wanted to give all parents opportunities to help out beyond volunteering time.  Please see below for a list of ways you can help us earn money back from your everyday purchases.

State funding alone does not provide everything our school and children need throughout the year. PTO helps bridge the gap by collecting your cash donations as well as providing other ways to collect funds below. We heavily rely on membership dues. So, please become a member to help with fulfilling our membership donation goals. PTO offers enhanced communication and involvment and it's required to attend the school parties.

Simply becoming a PTO member is the best thing you can do as a PTO member....

More than anything, we need your cash, not your time. We strive for 100% parent participation or $20 per family.


Our parent volunteers work five days a week in the teacher work room. We help our teachers with cutting, laminating, copying, booklet making and more. From September through December 2022, we logged over 500 hours of time! If you are interested in joining our crew, email kristymatson@yahoo.com for available days/times.


Interested in showing the staff at Horizon Elementary just how much you appreciate their hard work?  Help us stock the staff lounge this year! You can sponsor stocking the lounge with a business or individually. Another great way to help is to join up with other families to stock it up together for a month! Together this year we want to stock the staff lounge monthly with new items! Contact Marcy Richardson at richardson12@gmail.com to sign up. If you want to join with other families one month and need to be connected, we would love to set it up! Thank you Horizon families for always supporting the staff!

Follow our Facebook and Instagram pages (HorizonPTO) for announcements on when to send them to school with your child.


Do you have talents that could be beneficial to your PTO? If you are a photographer, graphic design artist or know how to use a Cricket like an expert, we have things for you to do to help! If you have any specialized skill to offer our PTO, please let us know. We would love to work with you.

Currently, we are in the need of:

Volunteer graphic design artist. Right now we have to pay $45 an hour, at a minimum, for art time to design simple things like banners, printed materials, graphics for our website and more.
