  • STUDENT FEATURE: Adolf Hitler

    The main leader of the holocaust was Adolf Hitler. He blamed Jews for Germany’s economic problems. He then spread hateful theories about Jews, Gypsies and other German groups. He claimed that the Jews were not as good as other Germans. Though many people did not believe Hitler, he was dead serious about what he said. To show that he was serious, he ordered attacks on neighboring countries and forced them under German rule. He quickly captured Jews and non-Jews as prisoners to fill his concentration camps.

  • STUDENT FEATURE: Volcanoes

    What is a mountain that spits out hot boiling liquid and rocks? If you guessed a volcano then you are correct.

    A volcano isn’t just any normal landform; it acts like a living thing that spews out contents one couldn’t imagine.

     To be able to understand a volcano, one must know its features. The central vent is the opening at earth’s surface through which lava, hot gases, and rock fragments burst through. The magma chamber holds all the magma in one spot inside the volcano. Craters are large bowl-shaped basins in the surface of the volcano.

  • SKYPE brings world of learning to students

    Those who have been out of the classroom at LaRue County High School for a few years need to visit a class to see how technology has changed the face of instruction.
    For example, when teacher Jorge Venegas had two guests, Larry Paden and his friend Nestor Sanchez, to speak to his Spanish class and field questions about Chile last week, Paden was in the classroom, but Sanchez was thousands of miles away in South America.

    Paul Mullins, LaRue County High School principal and Kentucky School Administrators Association’s 2009-10 Administrator of the Year, will be the closing keynote speaker at the Kentucky Society for Technology in Education Conference March 2 at the Galt House in Louisville.
    “I want to outline the journey through the laptop initiative so that those interested in implementing a similar program will have a one-to-one guide,” Mullins said, referring to Laptops of LaRue, a program that began last fall with Dell laptop computers being issued to each LCHS student.

  • Summer Garris named ExCEL Teacher of the Year

    Tony was a feisty and hot-tempered senior who had earned the privilege of moving out of alternative school into Summer Garris’ English classroom.  
    Thinking he was too cool for school, Tony had problems with respecting authority, doing his work and fitting in with other students.
    Yet, when he turned in his first essay, Garris realized that the young man had a real talent for writing.
