Neat things happened at Horace Mann this week, and some of them took place in our cafetorium. By the way, for those who think the word 'cafetorium' (cafeteria and auditorium combined) sounds weird, I agree with you!
Last Monday, the Lakewood Board of Education held their meeting in the Horace Mann Cafetorium. Thanks to a great performance by the Horace Mann 4th and 5th Grade Choir, the room was packed! Since the H2O's Pumpkinpalooza took a year off, this was a perfect venue for the choir to perform two Halloween numbers: Scarin' Alive (think Stayin' Alive) and Doin' the Igor (think about the play/movie Young Frankenstein). The students, under the direction of 2nd year HMES music teacher Mr. Aaron Waryk, not only sounded and looked terrific, but demonstrated their best respectful behavior during the National Merit Scholar recognition ceremony that preceded their performance.

At the same board meeting, longtime Lakewood Intervention Specialist Mrs. Pat Schiazza was honored. Mrs. Schiazza is retiring at the end of this month. She has only been at Horace Mann since the beginning of this school year, and yet, we will miss her so much. Thank you for all of your work with our students, Mrs. Schiazza--we wish you well!
