Principal's Message

Dear Horace Mann Community,            

An excellent opportunity for parent involvement is during Parent-Teacher Conferences this month, Nov. 4-6.  Parents and teachers will have a chance to discuss student progress, strengths, and needs.  Teachers will use the report card and other documents, such as a Reading Improvement and Monitoring Plan (RIMP) and AIMSweb reading graphs to guide discussion. 

Be sure to bring with you any questions we might answer, as well as information you’d like us to know about your child.  As your child’s first and most important teacher, you know a great deal about the ways in which your child learns best.

Parent-Teacher Conferences are one step in building strong home-school partnerships.  Such partnerships help us reach our common goal of helping your child to be successful each day, as well as on achievement tests.

Since teachers’ conference schedules are tight, if you must reschedule your conference, please call the Horace Mann office as soon as possible.  Our goal is 100% attendance at Parent-Teacher Conferences!

Conferences are held:

Wed, Nov 4:  4:00p-8:00p

Thu, Nov 5:  12:30p-8:00p

Fri, Nov 6:  8:20a-10:40a


Warmest regards,

Dr. Merritt F. Waters
