Horace Mann School PTA Needs Great Gatherings

We need to fill 55 slots for Great Gatherings -- and we only have 26! These fun social events account for nearly half of the money raised at the auction and are a great way for you and your kids to meet and play with other Horace Mann families and staff. The funds we raise contribute to many of the enrichment activities our students enjoy all year. We have lots of hosting ideas and show you how to do it at the Great Gatherings website, Please visit us now to check the calendar and submit your form. Forms are due: March 9th


Some people have contacted us because they're looking for someone to team up with. If you'd like to pitch in but don't have an idea of your own, consider joining another host. We can connect you both.


If you've never hosted and have questions about GGs like:

  • What should I charge?
  • What age range is appropriate for my event?

Please reach out to Karla Lauerman, Aaron Litzenberg, Karen Vander Sanden at


**In the event of a strike, the Silent and Live Auction will proceed as planned**
