This summer we are excited to offer all Loup City Public Schools kindergarten through 6th grade students the opportunity to participate in our summer program! Our summer sessions will begin on Monday, June 6th and end on Friday, July 1st. The program will begin in the mornings at 8:30 AM and end at 11:30 AM. The Summer Food Program will serve breakfast from 7:30am until 8:30am. Lunch will be served from 11:30am until 12:30pm. Summer Program students are encouraged to take advantage of both breakfast and lunch. Each day will consist of a math lesson, a reading lesson and an explore class. Explore classes will last one week, with students selecting a new class each week. The mission of our summer program is to provide a fun approach to improving math and reading skills, while also introducing students to activities geared toward piquing their curiosity in arts and crafts, music, science experiments, physical activities and learning games. Please be aware that students will be scheduled into reading and math sessions based on what they will need to help them improve their skills and not necessarily by their grade level. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school. Applications will be coming home soon!

Congratulations Mrs. Kim Henry! NEBRASKA EDUCATORS NOMINATED FOR NATIONAL HISTORY DAY® TEACHER OF THE YEAR April 11, 2022, College Park, MD–Three teachers from Nebraska have been nominated for the Patricia Behring Teacher of the Year award. Mrs. Mindy Podraza and Mrs. Lynn Behounek, teachers at Ralston Middle School in Ralston, Nebraska, have been co nominated in the junior division of the National History Day (NHD) National Contest. Mrs. Kimberly Henry, a teacher at Loup City Public School in Loup City, Nebraska, has been nominated in the senior division of the National History Day (NHD) National Contest. The award is sponsored by Patricia Behring in recognition of the pivotal role teachers play in the lives of students. Each of the 58 National History Day affiliates may nominate one high school and one middle school teacher for this award, and Mrs. Podraza, Mrs. Behounek, and Mrs. Henry are this year’s nominees from Nebraska. Every nominee for the $10,000 award is a teacher who demonstrates a commitment to engaging students in historical learning through the innovative use of primary sources, implementation of active learning strategies to foster historical thinking skills, and participation in the National History Day Contest. All nominees will receive $500 as a result of their nominations. “This award recognizes the very best educators from across the nation and beyond,” said National History Day Executive Director Dr. Cathy Gorn. “These educators are leaders and innovators in the teaching of history, and we are all the more impressed because of the extended difficult teaching circumstances due to the pandemic during the last year. I wish to congratulate Mrs. Podraza, Mrs. Behounek, and Mrs. Henry on their well-deserved nominations.” The national winner will be selected by a committee of experienced teachers and historians, and announced on Saturday, June 18, 2022, at the National History Day National Contest Awards Ceremony to be held virtually due to COVID-19. Nominees’ work must clearly illustrate the development and use of creative teaching methods that engage students in history, and help them make exciting discoveries about the past. About National History Day® (NHD): NHD is a non-profit organization based in College Park, Maryland, that seeks to improve the teaching and learning of history. The National History Day Contest was established in 1974 and currently engages more than half a million students every year in conducting original research on historical topics of interest.

Projects compete first at the local and affiliate levels, where the top entries are invited to the National Contest at the University of Maryland at College Park. NHD is sponsored in part by, HISTORY®, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Park Service, Southwest Airlines, the Crown Family Foundation, The Better Angels Society, the Pritzker Military Museum & Library and the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation.
