Horace Mann School Presents Robert Caro '53 with a Classroom Named in his Honor
Tuesday, June 20, 2017
Horace Mann School alumnus and acclaimed author and historian Robert Caro '53 and his wife, writer Ina Caro, arrived on campus on June 15, 2017 to a warm welcome from HM Head of School Dr. Tom Kelly, Upper Division history teacher Barry Bienstock, and other HM teachers. They had gathered for a recent HM tradition—the awarding of the Robert Caro '53 Prize for Literary Excellence in the Writing of History. The award, established in 2011 by Horace Mann School in Caro's honor, is presented annually at a luncheon at the Head of School's home. The Caros regularly stop off before the luncheon at Bienstock's Tillinghast Hall classroom to meet with the teacher. Encountering others from the HM community, along with members of a film crew, was a bit unusual. But a bigger surprise came when the couple neared the classroom door.

Horace Mann School Community Celebrates Commencements in Kindergarten and Lower Division
Wednesday, June 14, 2017
Graduation season at Horace Mann School got off to a delightful start on May 26, 2017 with a celebration marking the transition the school's Kindergarten students will soon make as they advance to first grade. HM's traditional Kindergarten End-of-Year Celebration brought together 84 Kindergarteners from the school's Lower Division Bronx campus, and its Nursery Division in Manhattan, for a grade-wide morning of song on the Gross Theater stage. For 88 Horace Mann School fifth grade students June 9, 2017 marked that momentous day when they would move from HM's Lower Division to its Middle Division. For those not returning to HM for the 2017-2018 school year, this was the day they, like their peers, would take the important step to middle school. For those continuing at HM it was a day to anticipate future adventures on the other side of campus. To read more about both celebrations, click the title link.

Horace Mann School's Nursery Division Art Show Highlights Yearlong "Emergent Curriculum" Learning
Monday, May 01, 2017
As the students in Horace Mann School's Nursery Division walked into Class KA on Friday, April 21, 2017 their jaws dropped open in surprise. Overnight, apparently, the classroom had been transformed into a cave. The transformation, crafted by Class KA's teachers, reflected the transformative education the children had experienced in that room over the previous months as they applied their curricular studies to one subject that had seized their imaginations early in the school year. Class KA's exhibit, and the imaginative offerings in every other Nursery Division classroom, were part of the annual HM Nursery Division Art Show of student work characteristic of the "emergent curriculum" philosophy that HM's Nursery Division pursues.

Each April, since 2008, members of the Horace Mann School community and a host of Bronx and New York City organizations have gathered together to participate in HM's Annual All School Service Learning Day. The event, coordinated by Horace Mann School's Center for Community Values and Action (CCVA) and its student Service-Learning Team members, brings about a thousand people together for a day of activities that highlight the year-around service-learning pursuits with which HM students are engaged. This year's annual All-School Service Learning Day took place on Saturday, April 22, 2017. Despite a drizzly start to the day the event saw children from neighboring Bronx schools, including PS 37, the AmPark Neighborhood School, and the afterschool programs of the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center (KHCC), spread out across HM's Middle and Upper Division campus for a full roster of fun and educational activities.

Monday, April 24, 2017
For 23 years, the Horace Mann School in the Bronx, NY, has celebrated Book Day, a day each spring when the school community — students, faculty, parents, and alumni, along with a host of guest speakers — turns its attention to exploring the issues and themes raised in a single book. Classes in the Upper Division for the school's 740 students and 150 faculty members are cancelled for the day so that students and faculty can give their full attention to the day's proceedings. The day is an exploration of one work through interdisciplinary workshops, discussions, art and theater pieces, and larger assemblies.
