What: Freshman Orientation Night
When: Tuesday, August 9th @ 6:30 p.m.
Where: High School Band Room
All incoming freshmen and their parents are encouraged to attend our Orientation Night. Mr. Hosick and Mr. Horner will be covering important details of the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. Students and parents will have the opportunity to tour the high school to prepare our freshmen for their first day of high school.
If you would like to fill out your child's enrollment forms online during the Orientation Night on the computers that will be provided, we encourage you to bring your child's emergency contact and insurance information for the activity consent form. Families will also be given an opportunity to complete necessary paperwork at home prior to the start of the school year.
Welcome to Minden Public Schools
It is my pleasure and privilege to serve as the Superintendent of the Minden Public Schools. Our school district's mission statement, "Minden Public Schools, with the community, strives to develop productive and responsible citizens through an environment that empowers them to seek, understand, and appreciate learning,” speaks to our goal of equipping our children with the academic and social skills that they need to be successful citizens now and in the future.
Minden Public Schools currently serves 778 students and families. We have a dedicated and caring staff whose main concerns are for the safety, welfare, and education of the children we serve. We are very proud of our students, families, and staff members and the learning opportunities they experience together each and every day.
I want to thank each of you in advance for your efforts to make this school district and community a great place for children. No matter what your connection is to our schools, your contribution to making a difference in the lives of our children is valued and appreciated.
Dr. Melissa Wheelock
