As the sun that beamed so brightly throughout Horace Mann School's Homecoming Day of Saturday, September 15, 2018 moved toward evening HM's Varsity and JV Football teammates ran across the School's Alumni Field to ring the bell outside historic Prettyman Gymnasium—a Lions Football team tradition for celebrating a win. The 36-9 victory over Fieldston was a perfect way to end a picture-perfect Homecoming 2018 that saw a record 5,000-plus members of the HM community flock to campus for athletic games, fun-filled family activities, a barbecue lunch featuring tail-gate favorites, and more. The HM community was also introduced to the School's new athletic and aquatic facilities made possible by the ongoing HM in Motion initiative. Later that Saturday night another 550 HM alumni from the classes of 1953 through 2013 commemorated five-year reunions at dinners and cocktail parties in Manhattan.
