Dear Horace Mann Families,
Whether summer was relaxing, busy, or a combination of both, I hope students and families are feeling ready to return to school. The 2014-15 school year is sure to be a good one, with lots of learning and a liberal helping of fun in store.
Thanks to the efforts of our custodial team and specialists from the district level, our building and grounds are in great shape. Teachers and support staff members are also arriving at school, and they have lots of fresh energy and ideas ready to go.
If you need information about the start of the school year, I encourage you to check out the School News tab on our website. Of course, please feel free to contact our school office, as well, at (216) 529-4257.
Please pause for a moment and imagine the growth our child(ren) will experience this year. What academic skills will be learned? What social skills will emerge? Now, ask yourself, "How can I as a family (or community) member support that growth?"
I hope you will choose to be involved in the activities at Horace Mann this year, as our children can only benefit from our collaboration on their behalf. Your questions and ideas are always welcome, and I hope you will contact us whenever you have something to share.
Dr. Merritt F. Waters8/20/2014
