Due to summer construction, in addition to our school year ending early this year (last day May 27th, 2022 at 12:15), we will also be starting school a week later this coming 2022-2023 school year.

Start of the 2022-2023 School Year:
September 7th: Back to School Night

September 12th: 1st Day of High School (ELEM individually scheduled testing day) 
September 13th: 1st Day of Elementary School

We have received many inquiries regarding summer SAC. Due to the scheduled construction at the school this summer, we have been looking into other options. Unfortunately, we couldn't secure an alternate location. Therefore, we are unable to offer summer SAC this year. Thank you for your understanding.


Hello! I'm Mrs. Horihan. I'm excited to be back for my second year at Mabel-Canton!

I live near Lanesboro with my husband, Kevin; and our three children, Liam (10), Fiona (9), and Rafe (7). Some of my favorite things include running and biking on the Root River Trail, reading and listening to books, listening to live music, gardening, spending time on our farm, taking photos, and staying informed on local news. 

I graduated from Mabel-Canton High School and earned my BA from Winona State University in Mass Communication-Journalism. During my first career, I worked as a journalist for the Post-Bulletin in Rochester. Most recently, I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching from St. Mary's University. In 2019, I worked as a High School Special Education teacher in Lanesboro.

Teaching high school English has long been a dream of mine and it's very humbling to teach in a community that I once called home. I'm excited to share my life experiences with my students. This year, I will also be teaching a high school art elective and elementary art. I can't wait to see what our kids create this year! 

If you have questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me before or after school at (507) 493-5422, ext. 253.
