Letter from Our Principal
by Mr. Harvey Oaxaca, Principal  

Our 86th year here at Horace Mann has gotten off to a great start! As I have told many people, we have a firm foundation and our goal now is to "build up", creating new and exciting things here. We have several goals that our School Site Council and Instructional Leadership Team are working to solidify over the next few weeks which will drive our work this year. However, the overall mission and vision for us is to create 21st Century Learners who are college and career-ready and prepared for whatever awaits them after high school.
PTA News
by Tina Wiener, PTA President   

Happy Fall! Our goal for the year is to get 100% of our parents involved with school events which directly impact our children.  I encourage all parents to attend the PTA Bistro to be held on Tuesday, September 29th at 8:30am. In connection with cyber safety week, this month's Bistro features information about safe computer and mobile practices for your children.   

At this Bistro, we will discuss:
  • Tracking the history of websites your child has visited
  • Blocking websites with inappropriate content
  • Cell phone content, including texting, Snapchat, and Instagram
  • Strategies for managing computer time and content WITH your child
  • Tools Horace Mann uses to ensure that students are navigating safely on the internet while at school.

All supplies will be provided and students who participate will earn community service hours.
