  • 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.

  • LCHS students become statesmen at Assembly

    Seventeen LaRue County High School students who attended the Kentucky Youth Assembly last month are true statesmen, and they have the documentation to prove it.

    They were one of only two schools out of the 46 in attendance to receive the Statesman Award, according to Dee Hutchins Jr., LCHS social studies teacher and adviser to the school’s Y-club.

    “St. X received one recognition and LaRue County received the other. This is outstanding,” Hutchins said.
