A Message from Dr. Kelly

Dear Friends,

What a treat it is for me to lead such a talented bunch at this colorful time of year. With the campus in full bloom, May begins the process of celebrating a year's worth of accomplishments by students, faculty, parents and alumni. From the healthy sense of community captured at this year's PA Benefit, to the beat of our first student-driven steel drums concert, to the joy of watching our littlest of lions come together to play together at this year's carnival, there is indeed much to be proud of and much to give thanks for.

As Head of School, one of my greatest privileges is to honor two members of the faculty each May for teaching excellence. Nothing at Horace Mann is more important than the quality of the instructional experience crafted for the students we serve. While the next issue of Across the Divisions will provide in-depth coverage of this year's awardees, I thought it would be appropriate to share a portion of my remarks from Wednesday's event.

Camping with Dorr

It was a cloudy and drizzly day, but the Nursery Division 4’s, their teachers and some helper parents arrived in Riverdale to go camping. The staff from Dorr, Glenn, Becky, Casey, and Russ, were all there to greet our enthusiastic group under the big tent on the side lawn of Dr. Kelly’s house.

Summer on the Hill

On May 16th, Summer on the Hill, will hold its annual 8th grade graduation ceremony at the Recital Hall.


Upper Division

At Horace Mann, April and May are the fastest months and in some ways, the best; May is perhaps even faster and even better than April. As the weather turns warm and sunny (and don't we deserve a break from the winter we endured!) the school year hurtles toward its conclusion.
