Horace Mann Continues ‘Adopt-a-Family' Program

For years, Horace Mann Middle School's Student Council has had a tradition of helping others during the holidays by "adopting" less fortunate families within the Horace Mann community. This year the tradition carried on, raising $780. During the month of December, the Student Council students did in-school fundraisers, raised money at their annual holiday dance, and accepted donations from staff and students. Horace Mann's Builder's Club, a service organization at Horace Mann, also made a generous donation to help make the holidays brighter for others.

The money raised was used to purchase gifts for a record number of students and families within the Horace Mann Community. After the gifts were purchased, student council and builder's club members worked together to wrap all of the gifts. Horace Mann's adopt-a-family program is a collaborative effort between Horace Mann Middle School's administration and office staff, guidance counselors, student leaders and the generosity of the entire school community.
