    All 7th grade students had the wonderful opportunity to hear WWII

    veterans speak here at Horace Mann about their experiences in the

    war. We were honored to have this once in a life time presentation

    by local veterans, Walter John Chilsen, Jarl Roine, Clarence

    Marschall, Bill Hall, Norm McMhon and speaker Paula Barnes.

    Parents: An Important Reminder

    About Messages for Students

    Our goal is to preserve the learning

    environment here at Horace Mann.

    We are asking that you try to remind

    your child of any appointments or how

    they are getting home after school

    before they come to school. If it is an

    emergency, please call the Main

    Office, and we will get the message to

    your student. Otherwise, if the

    message can wait, we ask that it wait;

    including forgotten items. We want to

    limit the number of interruptions in the

    classroom so we can focus on

    learning. Thank you!

    To ensure that we have

    accurate contact

    information on file for

    every student, please

    contact Shannon

    Keough in the

    Counseling office at

    715-261-0740 with any

    contact information

    Calendar of Events

    Dear Horace Mann Middle School families,

    As another school year comes to a close, I am reminded just how much we have accomplished as a

    school community: Our eighth graders are one step closer to embarking on their high school careers; our

    seventh graders are ready to assume the responsibilities that come with being upperclassmen at Horace

    Mann, and our sixth graders are now seasoned middle school students. We could not have achieved any

    of this without the support of our families, parents, and guardians.

    When our doors open again in September, we will operate within a 10-period day, and students’

    schedules will individually reflect their needs and interests. What an exciting time to be a Horace Mann


    On behalf of all of us here at Horace Mann, thank you for all you do to advance our mission,

    Student Learning - Whatever It Takes!
