For one Horace Mann School fifth-grader the school's Thanksgiving observances provided a welcome chance to spend time with the kindergartener she "buddies" throughout the year. For a sixth-grader they meant appreciating how all the students in his homeroom are "good friends, and have a connection, almost like family." And for Brenda Cohn, Director of the School's FLIK Dining Services, they offered the opportunity to share with the HM community a story of why its support of the New York Common Pantry in honor of Thanksgiving 2015 and throughout the year was so meaningful to her.

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.

Parents from all divisions came together in Gross Theater on Monday, November 7th for an evening workshop with the Royal Shakespeare Company. As an introduction to the ongoing RSC/Horace Mann School partnership, parents not only learned about the rehearsal room techniques being introduced in our classrooms, but also became students themselves. For one hour, parents-as-students engaged in a series of hands-on exercises the RSC has developed that mirror the interpretive process actors and directors undergo as they analyze a play for production. After brief comments from Dr. Tom Kelly and Dr. Adam Casdin, Upper Division English Chair and the program's director, and a short presentation by Jacqui O'Hanlon, the RSC's Director of Education, parents split up to create scenes from Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet, and then came together for a grand performance.
