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.
At 8:45 on the morning of September 11, 2014 about one hundred Horace Mann School students, teachers, administrators, staff members, and members of the school's security and maintenance staff gathered to share moments of peace and solidarity on the anniversary of that tragic day in U.S. history 13 years earlier that elicited opposite responses of pain, chaos and bewilderment. Standing together on Horace Mann's Main Field, within the same half-hour that, on September 11, 2001 saw terrorists fly two planes into the twin towers of New York City's World Trade Center, this group of HMers collectively mourned the deaths that day of 2,977 people, and, no doubt, thought about how the world has changed in the days, months and years since.
On Friday, September 19th, Horace Mann School will host the Fourth Annual Social Entrepreneurship Conference from 5:30p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Gross Theatre. Click the link above to open this post for more information and the event invitation.
With temperatures in New York City climbing into the nineties, September 2, 2014 felt more like a day in midsummer than the start of a fall trimester of a new school year. But the day's bright sunshine only added to the warmth of the greetings that students and teachers at Horace Mann School shared as they entered the school's Bronx campus buildings, exchanged cheerful calls of "welcome back" and "how was your summer?" and, later, gathered outside under patches of shade during lunchtime, or on the playground during recess to catch up with one another. The first day of HM's 2014-2015 school year saw the majority of HM's student population of 1,780 on campus to meet their new teachers, reconnect with their peers, and begin their classes and assignments.
On July 27th, Michael Stier and his teammates on the Manhattan Soccer Club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) 96 team won the U17 national championship with a score of 1-0 over FC Dallas at the Maryland SoccerPlex. Michael's soccer journey started on the Grasshopper at HM's Lower Division eight years ago. Perhaps he couldn't then imagine that this summer, that journey would end with a Manhattan soccer first – the 'triple crown' – as the team won the New York State Championship, the USA Region 1 Championship, and now the National Championship.
Horace Mann School junior Kenneth Shinozuka '16 was named winner of the third annual $50,000 Scientific American Science in Action Award, powered by the Google Science Fair, for his project "Wearable Sensors: A Novel Healthcare Solution for the Aging Society." The award, announced by Scientific American on August 6, 2014, honors a project that can make a practical difference by addressing an environmental, health or resources challenge. According to the competition's requirements the winning entry was to be innovative, easy to put into action and reproducible in other communities. In addition to the prize, Scientific American will fly the Science in Action winner to the finalist awards event at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., in September 2014, and will establish mentoring for a year to support the student's work in further improving his project.
Their plates piled high with hot dogs, fried chicken and potato salad students from Horace Mann School and from two high schools in Japan took a break from their week of studies and activities together to enjoy a traditional, all-American barbecue on the terrace outside of HM's Fisher Hall. The barbecue, on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 came at the end of a day of English language immersion sessions, theatrical rehearsals and some basketball. But the classes the students were participating in were not just about learning language. They were aimed at helping the Japanese students find their own "voice" in English, and begin to learn to truly express themselves in another language. "Express Yourself!" is, in fact, the name of the workshop the students had come to the U.S. and to Horace Mann to participate in. Created by HM Upper Division foreign languages teacher Mami Fujisaki her Express Yourself method of teaching foreign language involves speech, conversation, and theater performance.
