A Message From Dr. Kelly

Dear Friends,

With much appreciation, I thank you for the privilege of being a part of yet another awe-inspiring year at Horace Mann School. This month has seen celebrations across all our divisions; from the wonderful voices of our Kindergarteners to the inspiring words of this year's Valedictorian, we have much to celebrate and much to be proud of. The undeniable good cheer and camaraderie that resonates at this time of year reassures us that our core values and purposeful instructional moments continue to provide a solid foundation for the great and giving lives of the students we serve.

For those of you who were unable to attend yesterday's Commencement Ceremony, below is the text of my opening remarks to the community.

Commencement Remarks, Class of 2010

Wishing you a safe and joyful summer,



Parents Association: Information, News & Events

On behalf of the Parents Association and each of the division officers, I want to personally thank everyone who volunteered their time this year to the Parents Association. 2009-2010 was a stellar year, with many community building events.


Alumni & Development

During the past school year Horace Mann School celebrated renovations at the John Dorr Nature Laboratory that made this treasure of outdoor and community-building education into an environmentally-sustainable facility – one that inspired sustainability efforts throughout all of HM’s campuses and culture. To mark these efforts we bring you the spring 2010 issue of Horace Mann Magazine with sustainability as its focus.


Nursery Division

They arrived at the Nursery Division filled with energy and excitement looking for familiar friends and quickly separating from their parents. They ran up the stairs to the roof; down the stairs to see their classrooms.



Lower Division

Spring has been in the air now for quite some time. All you need to do is take a look around our campus.  Blooming and blossoming are the words of the moment. Every corner of our campus brings surprise and delight.



Middle Division

MM2 or the 4 Ms of Middle School. Middle Mania and Middle Memories are two important events in the life of the Middle Division.




Upper Division

I'm often asked, "How was your year, Dr. Schiller?" Often, I find myself at a loss to respond. A year is a long time in at Horace Mann. Time goes so quickly.





Enjoy the spring programs at Dorr, including 4th Grade Dorr, 1st Grade Dorr, 4's Nursery Pretend Camping Trip, 2nd Grade Dorr, 8th Grade Dorr Day and Peer Mentor Training and 8th Grade Dorr Day.
