The squiggly, frenzied lines iconic to the cartoons and captions of Horace Mann School alumnus Ed Koren'53 are instantly recognizable the world over. Twenty-one of these drawings are now on display through February 12, 2016 at The Gallery in HM's Fisher Hall. Koren, who is a fine artist as well as a famous cartoon artist, has another exhibit of his work titled "The Capricious Line" touring the U.S. through 2017. Unique to the Horace Mann School exhibit, however, is the fact that this one also displays works by the artist at the very start of his cartooning career, when he was a student at HM, illustrating pages of The Record, Mannikin and more. Nearly 100 HM students, faculty members and alumni, including members of Koren's Class of 1953, gathered in The Gallery at Horace Mann School on Thursday, January 14, 2016 for the show's opening.

Concerts, clothing drives, and card-making are all holiday traditions at Horace Mann School. But the season would not be complete without the holiday party HM's Upper Division hosts for Sanctuary of Families. For just shy of a quarter-of-a-century HM students and the school's Community Service office have organized this dinner on behalf of New York City's most prominent organization assisting victims of domestic violence and their children.This year 100 mothers and 120 children enjoyed the event, coming to HM by bus on the evening of December 8, 2015 to participate in craft projects, face painting, and to be photographed with Santa, before partaking of a meal of turkey, stuffing and all the fixings, served by HM's FLIK Catering Services staff, followed by a dessert of colorful cookies and ice cream sundaes served by Upper Division student volunteers.

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.
