Horizon School Division will welcome approximately 900 staff members to Humboldt for its annual opening day celebration.

Since 2014, Horizon staff have gathered to celebrate successes, collaborate, and prepare for the upcoming school year. In addition to student entertainment, greetings from the Board of Education, Excellence in Teaching and Years of Service awards, and a new inductee to the Horizon Wall of Fame, the day will feature a memorial tribute to Horizon’s late Board of Education Chair, Jim Hack.

“It is always a wonderful day when we can gather our staff to celebrate the amazing work that we do. Working in education is a true privilege, made even better by dedicated colleagues. Of course, this year will be bittersweet as we are missing our long-time Board Chair, Jim Hack. This will just be one of many events where his absence will be felt,” said Kevin C. Garinger, Director of Education.

The event is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 30, 2023 at the Humboldt Uniplex Curling Rink – 619 17th Street, Humboldt, SK.
