Ivan Arroyo is a member of the Army Reserve National Guard who was deployed to Kandhar, Afghanistan from August 2012 to July 2013. A Yonkers, N.Y. resident for 41 years, he and his wife Caroline have lived in public housing since the 1980s, raising their four children there, while ever dreaming of having a home of their own. That dream is now a reality, thanks, in large part, to Horace Mann School's work with Habitat for Humanity to both sponsor and build that home. For a group of HMers, who gathered with the Arroyo family, Habitat for Humanity of Westchester leaders and volunteers, and other U.S. Armed Forces veterans outside 54 Purser Place in Yonkers on November 11, 2015, this day – Veterans Day – provided the perfect opportunity to participate in this national observance, and also celebrate the completion of the house at that address.

Horace Mann School's 2015 All-School Service-Learning Day on Saturday, April 11, 2015 drew over 800 volunteers and participants to the HM campus, and to service partner venues in the neighboring Bronx and in New York City, breaking the record for participation in the event that is now in its eighth year. Launched in 2007 by HM's Center for Community Values and Action (CCVA) the day engages HM students, family members, faculty, administrators, staff and alumni in a variety of activities that incorporated the learning aspect of community service. "Each year, we try to keep some aspects of Service-Learning Day the same as in previous years, but each year we also try to do some things differently," said Jeremy Leeds, Director of the CCVA. "We always try to preserve a sense of collaboration, common purpose, and enjoyment. This year, we added many new activities and brought our community partners to HM. The work of the Service-Learning Team has allowed us to expand and deepen relationships in ways that just were not possible before this year."

Horace Mann School's Girls and Boys Lions Varsity Basketball teams will meet the Riverdale Falcon Boys and Girls Teams in the annual Buzzell games on Friday, February 20, 2015 at Manhattan College. The girls' game begins at 6 p.m. and the boys' will tip off at 8 p.m. This year marks the 54th year of the Buzzell Tournament. The game was initiated in 1951 in memory of Robert Buzzell, a member of the HM Class of 1951, who was fatally stricken with polio in October 1950. Not long after his tragic death, Robert's classmates decided that an athletic contest would be a fitting tribute to this student, who was a dedicated HM Lions team members and fan. The game has been played ever since, in all but one of the succeeding years, through today. The Buzzell Games have also served as a fundraising event, with funds originally dedicated exclusively to the March of Dimes and its efforts to defeat polio. To read more, click the title link above.
