Welcome to the Horace Mann Elementary Principal's Corner
Dear Mann Parents/Guardians,
I want to officially welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year at Mann Elementary, where we “Make it Happen! No Exceptions! No Excuses!” For those of you who are new to our school, I want you to know that Mann Elementary is a wonderful place, where our teachers and staff are passionate, caring, hardworking, and always learning something new for the benefit of your child(ren).
This year our school theme is “Learning Takes Us Places”. We look forward to taking our students on a learning journey to celebrate exploration and new discoveries. This year’s learning adventure will take our minds to new places that we will never forget and we will work hard every day to get our students to see the benefits of education and to really see that learning truly does take you place! Below are some of our initiatives to help all students on their ‘journey’.
Mann Elementary is proud to be a Leader in Me school! We believe this has a tremendous impact on our students, staff, and community by teaching and practicing the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The Leader in Me empowers students to make positive, effective, and responsible choices. The “Parent’s Place” is available at www.TheLeaderinMe.org. Here you will find ideas to use at home to reinforce your child’s learning and involve the family in a fun, interactive way.
Please mark your calendar for our Meet & Greet and Ice Cream Social on Monday, August 12, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. You will have an opportunity to meet the staff as well as your child’s classroom teacher, buy Mann t-shirt (cost is $10), and a free backpack (while supplies last)!
We look forward to serving and partnering with you to ensure your child achieves their highest potential. We are dedicated to making your child’s educational experience positive and rewarding. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at (314)772-4545 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, you are always welcome at Mann.
Dr. Angela Glass
