Members of the community are celebrating a local elementary school.
Students, staff, and alumni of Horace Mann Elementary were invited to take part in festivities to honor the school's history.
Kids took part in a 5k run and alumni shared some of their favorite memories from the school, and the impact Horace Mann has on their lives and the community.
Joe Montoya, a former Horace Mann teacher, says, "I think it brings together all the different nationalities, and it makes you become more of a community. It's a good place to learn. I think we had some very good teachers here."
School staff hopes the event builds a stronger community.
