Minden High School Honors Night -  Every few years, the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) calendar adjusts by approximately a week to compensate for the movement across the years. The 2013-2014 school year is the year the NSAA calendar has adjusted. You may have noticed that all of our activities seem to be a week later than normal this year. Because of this adjustment, a conflict at graduation time has been created. While the NSAA calendar adjusted to a week later, Minden High School chose NOT to move graduation. Honors Night traditionally occurs on the Friday evening before graduation. This year, Southwest Conference Golf in Ainsworth and the Cozad Invitational Track meet are both on the Friday before graduation. Because of these two conflicts, Honors Night will be moved to Thursday, May 8 at 7:30 p.m. Mandatory graduation practice and pictures in caps and gowns for all seniors will move to Thursday morning, May 8 at 8:00 a.m.  Graduation will stay on Saturday, May 10 at 2:00. Seniors will still be officially done with school at lunch on Wednesday, May 7.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we do not want seniors to miss such an important evening because of a conflict with another school event.  If you have any questions regarding this schedule change, please contact Jeffrey Horner at the high school, 832-2254.

 In summary, THE OFFICIAL GRADUATION SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:

 ·         Wednesday, May 7 – Seniors released from school at lunch.

·         Thursday, May 8 at 8:00 a.m. – Mandatory graduation practice and pictures for all seniors

 ·         Thursday, May 8 at 7:30 p.m. – Honors Night

·         Saturday, May 10 at 2:00 p.m. – Minden High School Graduation

Welcome Back

Mr. Don Hosick, High School Principal

To the Students of MHS

Welcome, students, to Minden High School! Our staff hopes that you will enjoy your years as Whippets and that you will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful adults. We are already looking forward to the graduation of the Class of 2014, just a few short months away.

When you enter our school, you may notice a few changes. For one, our technology continues to evolve. Prior to this year, we carefully prepared for a new computer operating system by expanding the memory of our computers, adding a new server, and purchasing new laptops. These preparations led to this summer’s important project: the installation of Windows 7 Professional on all computers. Moreover, we have purchased 60 iPads to further facilitate your learning.

Our school is also attempting to go “green.” To accomplish this goal, we will be relying even more on electronic communications with you and parents.

We have only two changes in the teaching staff this year. Mr. Tony Marino, who previously taught in our Success Center, will now teach American History, World Affairs, and Weights. A former Minden teacher, Mr. Andrew Carlton, will be an Instructional Coach and direct our Success Center.

Although most of our competition in athletics remains the same, we have added Overton and Ord to the volleyball schedule, and Adams Central and McCook to girls’ basketball.

I am proud to be the principal of Minden High School and to serve so many respectful, intelligent, and hardworking students. I hope all students will have a great school year!

Mr. Don Hosick, principal
