Mark Beversdorf
Athletic Director

Welcome to the Horace Mann Athletic Web Page. The purpose of this page is to foster and improve communication between all stakeholders of our athletic program.

It is our belief that athletes will grow mentally, physically, socially and emotionally through their involvement in sports and our program. Hopefully, this growth will result in a healthy lifestyle which will be maintained throughout their lives.

Helping Middle School students achieve their goals of healthy mind, body and spirit!

What’s happening in the Growing Great Minds (G2M) Out of School learning program?

Our focus remains the same – on academics and enrichment. This comprehensive out of school program is designed to enrich the mind (academic), body and spirit of students at Horace Mann. All programs are FREE! All programs are open to ALL students but require PERMISSION SLIPS which can be obtained from the Horace Mann website or G2M or Growing Great Minds bulletin board located outside the counseling office.

G2M Memberships and Sponsorships

The cost for membership is $10 per year, or a $25 maximum per family to offset the cost of supplies. This is not intended to be a barrier to participation. Families are asked to pay, as they are able. Whether your child attends one class or several, this is a one-time annual fee. Please note that this membership fee is separate from and should not be confused with any athletic fees, membership fees for outside community agencies or other site-specific special programs or events. Parents can pay the G2M program fee via your Infinite campus portal Parent Portal at, or by sending payment with your student to the attention of your G2M Coordinator.
