An Americanism hearing was held by the Minden Public Schools Board of Education on June 8. Members of the public were given the opportunity to express their thoughts and concerns regarding the Americanism curriculum and programming in Minden Public Schools.
Comments were positive as the district was commended for going above and beyond what is required for civics in the schools. The Americanism Committee met with social studies teachers from each school to discuss civics curriculum, activities, and programs. It is their belief that Americanism is properly presented to students of all grade levels in Minden.
Superintendent Jim Widdifield reported a successful beginning to the summer lunch program with more than 300 meals going out that morning. He expressed pride in district staff, teachers, and administration for stepping up to make this program and other district projects a success during this unprecedented time.
