Greetings Horace Mann Families,
Jeans for a Cause
On Saturday, April 25, a massive 7.8 earthquake hit
near Kathmandu, Nepal causing tremendous damage and death. Millions are
without homes and food. The death toll is rising every day and is now
over 7,000. On Wednesday, April 29, Horace Mann Elementary staff and
students donated $1,000.00 to Promise Child for Nepal Earthquake Relief
by holding a "Jeans for a Cause" fundraiser. Thank you to all who
"Frozen" Family Literacy Day!
250 students brought their parents to join in a book walk, story time
and sing-a-long. Each child received a new book to practice their
reading every night. Parents learned new reading strategies to help
their child better understand what they are reading.
Most importantly, children were engaged in listening and reading the book "Frozen".
It's amazing how children will practice reading when they are INTERESTED
in what they are reading! For the first time in forever - children at
Mann Elementary in grades TK through sixth grade came together to read,
to learn and sing "Let It Go."
