  • Schools have options for approaching ‘Snow Days’

    Remember when you were a kid waking up on a school day after the evening weather forecast had called for a chance of snow?

    More than likely, one question filled your mind as you raced to the window and pulled back the curtains to see if any of the white stuff had fallen - “Is there going to be school today?”

    With our coldest and snowiest months now approaching, that question probably will be repeated many times not only by students but by their parents as well.

    What’s the best way to find out?

  • Going ‘extreme ugly’ for a good cause

    Students at Abraham Lincoln Elementary continued their tradition of collecting for the Kelly Dean Sanders Fund with the annual Extreme Ugly Makeover.

    Classrooms compete in their collections for this fund designated for clothing and other supplies for students within their school. Then right before Christmas, the classroom with the most money is allowed to choose a staff member for the ugly makeover.

    This year’s winning homeroom was the class of Samantha Ray. The students chose their own teacher as the lucky recipient of the award.

  • Construction booming in the gingerbread business

    Debbie Taylor’s class at LaRue County High School has entered into the home construction business.

    Unlike most builders, however, her students will be able to eat their structures as they have designed and built gingerbread houses.

    “We make them every year,” Taylor said. “However, in the past we have used graham crackers and hot glue. This year, everything is totally edible.”

    For their building plans, the students researched various recipes on Web sites, compared them, then selected the ones that best suited them.
