    Hats off to another successful school year. I would like to thank all the wonderful students, staff and parents for a great school year.

    Thank you for a fantastic school year! On behalf of the staff at Horace, I hope you have a wonderful summer filled with relaxation and time spent with family. See you for the 2019-2020 school year!

  • Save your child's work in Seesaw before it disappears!

    Seesaw – please send this link to families and/or post to Seesaw so families can save their child’s work:


    We have learned that once our students are archived and no longer active in Seesaw, parents have about 60 days to download and save their child’s work. After students are no longer active in a Seesaw class, the accounts may not be available. Accounts do stay active for our K – 4 who stay in our system; however, it’s still a good idea that parents capture the items they find valuable. I recommend posting this alert in Seesaw and possibly email your families so they can capture their student work before they move to the next grade.

School-Based Sealant Program

  • Seal! ND School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program

    In 2012, The North Dakota Department of Health, Oral Health Program (OHP) implemented the Seal! ND School-based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program. Public health dental hygienists visit schools two times a year (fall and spring) and provide direct preventive services, under standing orders of a dentist which include: oral health education, a screening, dental sealant and fluoride varnish application. A parent/guardian signed consent form is required to participate in the Seal! ND fluoride varnish and dental sealant program.

    Services are provided to schools that are recognized as being in need by the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Students attending pre-kindergarten through 12th grade (depending upon the school) with parent/guardian consent are eligible to receive the free oral health services. A goody bag consisting of a result sheet (what the child had done), toothbrush, toothpaste and floss will be provided to each child that is seen. In the West Fargo area, Maple Family Dental will be providing the services. Watch for more information to come!
