Teacher Appreciation Week - May 4 - May 8

It's time to say thanks to our fabulous teachers at MANN and we need your help! We are looking for a few volunteers to help coordinate a great week for our wonderful staff. Please contact Wendy Barrett if interested. Thanks! 

Teacher Appreciation Luncheon Donations Needed!

Please help honor our teachers and staff for their hard work and dedication on behalf of our students. Donations of good and beverages are needed including salads, sides, and desserts. Thank you for understanding that all donations should be nut-free. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will be very much appreciated as well. Donations can be brought to the Teachers' Lounge on Friday morning, May 8. If you need your serving dish returned, please put your name on the bottom of your dish. You can pick it up the following day. Please sign up HERE! If you have any questions, contact either Gretchen Kenagy or Lisa Lazzara.

PBIS Team Collection

Let's celebrate good behavior and get ready for summer! The PBIS team will be collecting inexpensive new - or nearly new - items for summer (books, crafts, games, balls, frisbees, sidewalk chalk, jump ropes, bubbles, etc.). Perhaps you are doing some spring cleaning and have some of these items or you are out and about at Michaels, Target, Jewel, etc. and see a dollar item! Students can spend their remaining horseshoe hoorays to buy these items at our last Horseshoe Hooray store on May 28. We hope that all our Mann students will have a fun-filled and productive summer! Donations will be accepted in the main office between the dates of May 4 and May 22. Thank you in advance for supporting Mann's PBIS program.

Covenant House Fundraiser

In memory of Dr. Jinger Hoop, Mann School will participate in a Covenant House fundraiser. On Friday, May 1, 2015, there will be a $1 Crazy Hair Day and a Bake Sale on the school blacktop to support Covenant House, an organization that serves underprivileged and homeless children around the world. These events are to celebrate and remember Dr. Jinger Hoop, mother of Luis Daniel, a fourth grader at Horace Mann Elementary School. Thank you in advance for helping us celebrate Dr. Jinger Hoop's life with your family's participation and kindly support of a Mann Family. If you would like to donate to the Bake Sale, please contact Jenn Harden-Finn or Jenny Yang

Safety Patrol Training

Safety Patrol training is in full swing! Please help by paying attention to our 4th grade trainees' signals as they take on this important role. Thanks to our current 5th grade safety patrol, parent volunteers and Mr. Hayward for making this program a success!
