Note From Mrs. Eckstaine

Spring is coming, Horace Mann Family! With the weather beginning to warm up and students eager to be outside, our awesome gym teacher, Mr. Peterson, put together some information to consider for summer activities. Research shows that out-of-school programs truly support healthy development in students. These settings are safe places for students to reinforce existing social skills and build new skills that will foster emotional, behavioral, and even academic advancement. If you have any questions about the activities listed or would like help filling out the financial aid forms, Mr. Peterson has offered to assist if you let him know. ross.a.peterson@k12.sd.us

Parent communication and involvement are extremely important, so please continue to email or call with ideas, suggestions, or concerns. Working together collaboratively will ensure that Horace Mann will continue improving in our vision of providing students with the skills necessary to be successful in any environment. YOUR feedback matters! (See feedback button below!)
