  • LaRue schools installing emergency devices

    LaRue County Schools are installing devices – automated external defibrillators – that might prove to be lifesavers in case of a health emergency.

    “Several lives have been saved at schools, athletic events and practices in other parts of the country where these are in place,” said Mike Brown, director of pupil personnel and district health coordinator. 

  • ACT will benefit students now and in the future

    The ACT, which all Kentucky high school juniors are required to take, is important not only because it is a predictor of success in college, but also because the data gleaned from it can help strengthen students in academic areas while they’re still in high school.

    Ruth Sorace, curriculum specialist with the LaRue County School System, explained its value:

  • Horticulture Club offers students first-hand learning

    Some students at Hodgenville Elementary School are learning botany and some biology firsthand as members of the school’s horticulture club.

    The students have a small garden outside adviser Ashley Puckett’s classroom where they have grown several types of vegetables – tomatoes, squash, zucchini, as well as several varieties of flowers including sunflowers.

    “I began leading the club last year,” Puckett said. “Becky Hawkins (a teaching colleague) led the club about three years before me.”

  • High school speech team coaching ‘Little Leagues’

    Just as successful high school varsity sports teams have feeder leagues supplying them with skilled and experienced new faces, so Katy Cecil, speech coach for both LaRue County high and middle schools, has begun a Little League complete with teams – Speakin’ Lincolns, Jabber Jawz and Awesome Os.

    “We started the program to educate the younger grades about what speech and debate actually is,” said Cecil who teaches English at LaRue County High School.
