  • 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.

  • LaRue County Schools K-12 Student Attendance Policy

  • Kids Crew enjoys early holiday treat

    Children at Kids Crew received an early Christmas treat as they and their families had breakfast with Santa Dec. 11 at the child-care center at the LaRue County Board of Education.

    “In years past Kids Crew has prepared a musical where the children spend all month learning songs and then we perform them for family and friends during an evening event,” Stephanie Ash, Kids Crew director, said. “The Breakfast with Santa is much less formal and more laid back than the musicals were.”
