INTRO to Horace Mann Community SERVICE (CS)
Community Service raises awareness about civic responsibility. Horace Mann
offers an array of events and opportunities throughout the year for its student
community to get involved. Middle School Students achieve a certificate: 6th
& 7th graders need to complete 10 hours, 8th graders obtain a certificate & a
gold seal if they complete 15 hours. K-5th grade students too can work
towards a certificate of achievement if they participate in 8 or more
Community Service Events
