A supply of sweatshirts and socks for students who arrive at school not dressed for colder weather was collected. Donations from ArtFX and Horizons members, in addition to purchases from budgeted funds, established this collection. A Target gift card was also donated to allow the Zeman principal to purchase shoes for students whose families were unable to buy them.
School Supply Drive
Horizons members collected 287 items in a joint DZ-Zeman supply drive. Zeman items were given to students whose families could not afford to purchase crayons, pencils and markers. In addition, Horizons purchased 25 timers for teachers to use in the classroom.
Carnival and Color Run
Horizons members helped facilitate games at the annual Zeman Carnival in September and high school students assisted with the Zeman Color Run in October.
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
1,350 box tops were collected by Horizons members translating into $135 of free money. These funds help the school make miscellaneous purchases not provided for in its budget. Collections will continue in October and February each year.
Easter Turkey Dinners
Ten Zeman families were gifted with complete turkey dinners on the Saturday before Easter. All dinners were delivered by Horizons members.
Random Acts of Kindness
Proceeds from the free-will donation collected at Horizons Easter breakfast were used to pay off lunch account balances for 14 Zeman families (18 individual students) who were financially unable to get caught up with their LPS lunch account debts.
Six Horizons members regularly volunteered at Zeman throughout the school year. These volunteers listened to students read aloud, helped with spelling words, practiced math facts and provided individual attention to students.
