Attention 5th Grade Parents! - 5th Grade Gift Collection Starts NOW!

In a few short months, our children will be moving on from Horace Mann Elementary and beginning their middle school years.

Traditionally, the fifth-grade class gives a gift to the school to commemorate their years at Mann.  Mrs. Cole has suggested that we continue to add artwork around the school.  In recent years, murals and artwork have added beauty and color to the main office, the gym, the fifth-grade pod and the second-floor hallway. This year, we plan to add artwork to the lunchroom as the 2017 class gift. Fifth-grade students will be given the opportunity to vote on the theme for this mural,

Please join in donating toward this gift in memory of the time your child was a student at Mann Elementary.

Click Here to Donate to the 5th Grade Gift!

Donations may also be given to Sara Yount on the blacktop before or after school, dropped off at her home at 150 North Ridgeland Avenue or sent to her via Chase QuickPay.

Warming Center / Indoor Recess Volunteers Needed!

30 Minute Shifts Available!
Register now!
The cold weather is upon us. Staring in January, parents are needed to help supervise with the warming center where children can take a break from the cold during lunch recess.  If it is too cold to be outside for recess, volunteers will ask to supervise one of the indoor recess activities. 

Check out the 5th Grade Mural!

Drop by the 5th grade pod and see the latest mural at Mann. Thanks goes to our outgoing fifth grade class for making this wonderful donation to our school.
