Principal's Message


Sanya Henley

Hello Horace Mann Families,


Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!!

It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the new principal of Horace Mann Elementary School!! I look forward to meeting all of the students and parents as we embark on a school year where we will create our “new normal.” The focus of this school year is GRATITUDE!! I am grateful to be at Horace Mann and I am grateful to interact with students in person again. 

Lakewood City Schools takes the health and safety of their families and staff very seriously. All of the COVID safety precautions are still in place. The District is providing hand sanitizer, tissue, masks for students that forget and disinfectant wipes. There is no need for you to send them in with your child’s school supplies.

Our district has identified six core competencies as part of the Vision of a Lakewood Graduate: collaboration, communication, growth mindset, global awareness, empathy, and critical and creative thinking skills.  We are committed to supporting all students' learning and growth in all of these areas.
