Horace Mann School gave summer a glorious send-off and fall a warm welcome as over 4,100 HM alumni, students, administrators, faculty and staff, families and friends came to the school's Bronx campus for athletic events and a carnival of activities on Saturday September 20, 2014, and to reunion dinners and parties in New York City that lasted late into the night.
As Horace Mann School prepared to celebrate Homecoming Weekend on September 19 and 20, 2014, and alumni traveled to New York from around the country, and from as far away as Greece and Switzerland, for their class reunions, Dr. Elinor Fosdick Downs, who graduated from the Horace Mann School for Girls in 1929, planned to observe the occasion from afar. HM's 2014 Homecoming Weekend would mark her class' 85th reunion, but it also coincided with her 103rd birthday, and family members are joining her to observe the day. "Homecoming," remarked Dr. Downs, in a phone conversation from her home in Boston. "This sounds like a big event. I don't really remember going to a Homecoming, but I do remember going to reunions. They were much less organized than they are now. Every year, around graduation time, friends would call each other up, and we would get together for lunch or dinner, usually at one of the classmates' homes. We didn't make formal arrangements, but we did enjoy getting together. We'd catch up on family and friends, and of course we'd talk about Horace Mann."
On Saturday, September 13th, more than 400 students, parents, faculty and staff members, alumni and alumnae braved the weather forecast for the trip to the School's John Dorr Nature Laboratory in Washington Depot, CT, for the Annual Family Picnic. The rain held off until the end, and even the rain didn't dampen the spirits or the enthusiasm of those in attendance. The youngest HM Lions enjoyed the pony rides, face-painting, and 'Curious Critters' including a tarantula, snakes and a ferret or two. Older guests had fun with the rock-climbing wall, the hay ride, and the musical entertainment. Everyone enjoyed the food, including crowd favorite, the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream pops.
September 19, 2014, 5:30 – 9 p.m. On Friday, September 19, 2014, prominent leaders of the international social entrepreneurship movement will convene at Horace Mann School in the Bronx for the school's fourth-annual Social Entrepreneurship Conference (SEC). These influential presenters will not just be introducing the audience of students, teachers and parents from throughout New York City to the field of social entrepreneurship. They will address the question of "what now?" or, how participants can find immediate opportunities to get involved once they are inspired to do so, according to 2014 SEC organizer Tyler Bleuel '15.
