Field Hockey Play 4 the Cure Raises $461.75! Click to see more

The field hockey team would like to thank the teachers, students and staff for their support of our Play 4 the Cure! Our goal was to increase awareness and educate Hornsby about this terrible disease.

We wanted to raise money for all cancers. Yesterday we raised $461.75 for the National Cancer Foundation.

It was great seeing so many people wearing pink yesterday as well as supporting us during our hockey game. Thanks Hornsby!


Author Lisa Graff Visited 6th Grade Students

Lisa Graff visited 6th grade students today and talked about her books.  Hornsby students have been reading Lost in the Sun and A Tangle of Knots.  There were very excited to hear about Graff’s new book coming out in May, The Tree House War.
