The best reading support you can give your child is to read daily, nightly and always to your child. A suggested 20 minutes a day is great, more is even better, and research has shown that reading to your child in their home language is just as beneficial as the second language they are trying to learn!!
GENERAL INFORMATION: Many charter schools "rent" space in a facility. New Horizon is in complete ownership of the facility. The professional lighting and sound in the dance room (cultural hall) are quite extraordinary. The basket ball court outside is also a volleyball court. The park across the street (north) gives students room to stretch their legs and enjoy the outdoors at recess and at lunch time. Hot lunches are also part of the New Horizon School program. New Horizon is a certified "PUBLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL" sponsored by the Arizona Charter Board. The school was started in the Fall of 1996.

The real story of the crossing of the Delaware
Text books shorten this important story. After the horrifying loss of the battles of New York everything seemed hopeless.
It was obvious that the British empire was too strong for the untrained Americans.
Just the nature of military warfare was beyond the Americans resources and training. In a previous battle at Bunker Hill (Breeds Hill) the battle was lost because of a lack of gun powder. The resources of food, clothes, shoes, fire arms, canon and gun powder were out of the reach of the Americans unless something changed.
Things could not get any worse. The soldiers enlistments were up on December 31st of 1776!!!
The videos here are very accurate explanations about the battles and how important and difficult they were.
It also clears up the notion that the enemy was "drunk" and not ready to fight. It was a difficult battle to win under harsh conditions and the surprise attack on December 26th was one of the most demanding and important battles of the revolutionary war.
These events at the end of 1776 and the beginning of 1777 were considered by many historians THE 10 DAYS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD"
