  • LaRue County students have “got the power”

    If you happen to see some high school students helping the little ones during Trick or Treat on the Square Oct. 31, they likely are members of a LaRue County High School organization built upon serving others.

  • Course serves as guide for LCHS students

    Freshman year of high school can be an intimidating transition for students.

    Besides the social navigation, there is an increase in responsibility and learning academic and life skills.

    A new course offered to ninth grade students at LaRue County High School promotes learning about responsible ways for students to take care of their bodies.

    The course, “Reducing the Risk,” which began this month, focuses on sexually transmitted diseases and infections, human immunodeficiency virus and pregnancy prevention methods.

  • McMillion among those earning National Board certifications

    Ten of LaRue County’s teachers have achieved National Board for Professional Teaching Standards’ certification. We’ll take a look at their philosophy and the hard work required to become ‘the best.’

    Reflection, or taking a close look at what one is doing in order to improve, will be a component of the new evaluation system for Kentucky teachers beginning next school year.

    For those teachers who have achieved national board certification, however, it is a continuation of what they were required to do during that process.

  • Don’t just read, interact

    The Governor’s Office of Early Childhood shares the following on how to read with young children. Interactive or dialogic reading is more than just reading a story. It is children and adults having a conversation about a book.

    How we read to preschoolers is as important as how frequently we read to them. In dialogic reading, the adult helps the child become the teller of the story. The adult becomes the listener, questioner and audience for the child.

  • KACo presents cool tool for school

    The Kentucky Association of Counties, commonly referred to as KACo, presented last month a new learning tool to third and fourth grade students called the “County Government Booklet: An Activity Guide for Kids.” The booklet contains fun learning exercises to help promote student learning about various government officials within their community.

    The County Government Booklet: An Activity Guide for Kids was developed through the meshing of ideas from three teachers based out of the state’s capital –Frankfort.

  • Student essay winners; The LaRue County Republican Party sponsored an essay contest: “What the U.S. Constitution Means to Me.”

    In some ways the Constitution means a lot to me, because without it, I may not be able to be the same person that I am right now.

    Although the whole Constitution gives me certain rights and keeps me free, it is the Constitution’s First Amendment in the Bill of Rights that means the most to me. This is because it gives me my freedom of religion, my freedom of speech, and my freedom of press.

  • Student essay winners; The LaRue County Republican Party sponsored an essay contest: “What the U.S. Constitution Means to Me.”

    The constitution is the lifeblood of this nation, our rhyme and reason, our certificate to being American.

    To me, the constitution is not merely a contract, but represents what it means to be part of this great country. The constitution establishes a perfect Union, creating a nation in which we can thrive and be proud. The pages of the constitution grant citizens of the United States freedoms, giving us rights as humans. This manuscript is the heartbeat of our country; it throbs in every American’s heart, it beats in my heart.
