Welcome to East Elementary, Home of the Minden Whippets!

East Elementary is a kindergarten through third grade building and has an enrollment of 252 students. Students have the opportunity to take part in our school breakfast and lunch program. Extra support services are offered through Title reading and math as well as Special Education services. High ability learners are challenged through our GATE program and differentiated learning in various classrooms. Our fine arts and physical education talents can be observed during our annual musical, art show, and P.E. program. Highlights throughout the year also include our Fall and Spring book fairs as well as our American Heart Association event. Positive character traits are promoted through our Pup Club and our weekly integrity celebration. With everything that takes place at East Elementary, we make efforts to meet our 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.”

I am proud to serve as the principal of East Elementary! It’s a great day to be a Whippet!
