Celebrate the hard work and dedication

 of our Horace Mann Staff this year!  They are VIPS! 

To show our appreciation, special events for the staff will be happening May 2nd through the 6th sponsored by the PTSA.  

Comments or Questions? Please email hospitality@mannptsa.org 



FAN MAIL Day – Monday, May 2nd 

This year we are celebrating our VIP teachers with a Hollywood flare. Each day has a movie theme and Monday, May 2nd is YOU'VE GOT MAIL!

We hope that parents and students will flood staff inboxes with notes or emails of appreciation!  This could include teachers, specialists, and any staff members who have made an impact, such as paraeducators, instructional assistants, custodians, and office staff. They love to receive notes from parents and students. Email is a great way to spread the love across lots of staff members!

Students can color and write on this coloring page and bring it in to any staff member, ideally on Monday May 2nd!  

VIP Day – Wednesday, May 4th 

Classroom parent volunteers for each grade have the opportunity to recognize teachers and support staff mid-week.  Look for communication from volunteers about your student's class and contact them if you want to help coordinate!

SWAG Day – Friday, May 6th 

If you would like to show your appreciation with a gift, gift cards are an excellent choice! (Please follow up with staff to ensure e-gift cards do not wind up in spam folders. Note, staff cannot accept gifts greater than $50.) Physical gifts can be sent with students or left in the school office.

Some staff members have filled out a list of favorites that you can see here along with their email addresses.


Staff Lounge Events 

Week we will be celebrating Staff each day with a different movie-themed event in the Staff Lounge.  We can’t put these events together without help from YOU and other parent volunteers! There are many opportunities to donate homemade or store-bought goods throughout the week. If you can commit to bringing an item for one or more days, we would really appreciate it! Please click the sign-up links below for details.
