Welcome to the Horace Mann Elementary Principal's Corner
Dear Mann Parents/Guardians,
I want to officially welcome you to the 2017-2018 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).
Our school’s theme this year is “Teamwork …One Goal, One Team, Helping Everyone Achieve!” We will focus on what it means to be a “Team”. Michael Jordan once said, “There is no “I” in team, but there is an “I” in win”. As individuals we are strong, but as a team we are invincible. We will continue to work together to enhance our teaching and learning environment where academic achievement for every student is paramount. Each student, parent, staff, and community partners makes Mann Elementary School’s team, and it takes us working together to make the team successful!
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 on Monday, August 14, 2017 from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. You will have an opportunity to meet the staff as well as your child’s classroom teacher, order your child’s Mann t-shirt (cost is $10), and receive free school supplies and a free backpack for every student!
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 email@example.com. Remember, you are always welcome at Mann.
