Pre-KA has had enough of the frigid winter! Teacher Nina Rich shared, "In circle time we talked about how great it would be if we could all go to the beach, to feel the warmth of the sun, to frolic in the sand and surf. We realized we couldn't all go to a real beach together, so we decided to create one in our classroom!" To read more about the beach party, click the title link above.
Irwin Block '49 and his brother Joel Block '52 "layered up" in tweed jackets over warm sweaters to beat the below-freezing temperatures of February 25, 2015, the night of the Horace Mann School Alumni Council's Annual Winter Celebration. The evening, organized by the Horace Mann Alumni Council (HMAC) and the HM Alumni and Development Office, provides alumni a chance to get together over drinks and warming hors d'oeuvres of sliders and more for no other reason than to catch up with friends, meet other alums, and have a good time.

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.
Thirty-eight cast members performing in two separate casts, five productions, three directors, and about seven weeks of after-school-hour practices—waylaid by three snow days—all figure into the countdown to the Horace Mann School Theatre Company's (HMTC) presentation of Romeo and Julieton Friday, February 6 and Saturday February 7, 2015. But, there's one more figure to tally into calculations of how Romeo and Juliet came to be the HMTC's Upper Division winter stage production—and it's a surprising one. That's the number of times HM actors have performed Romeo and Juliet before. The total? Zero. It's surprising because, while Othello, King Lear, Much Ado About Nothing, All's Well That Ends Well, and A Midsummer Night's Dream have visited HM's stages—and in the last case, was once "staged" in the school's swimming pool—a thorough search of the HM Theater Department's extensive archive came up with no previous production of William Shakespeare's timeless love story.

On Thursday, January 15th, all five Kindergarten classes visited the Middle and Upper Division Recital Hall to explore astronomy with the Dorr Nature Lab faculty members. The Nursery Division classes rode the bus to the Bronx, and the Lower Division classes crossed the street, but all of the children traveled thousands of miles into the Milky Way to see stars in the portable planetarium set up on the Recital Hall stage. Constellations was the theme for the visit. Dorr staff shared some stories with the children and had them draw their own constellations, and then they visited the planetarium to see some up close.
