  • Preparing your child for school

    By CARLA PRESTON

    President of the LaRue County Education Association

    It is never too early to start providing the kinds of experiences that will help your child enter school ready to succeed. School readiness refers to the academic knowledge, independence, communication, and social skills children need to do well in school.

  • Students transitioning

    Those times when students progress from elementary to middle school and middle to high school are for some of them giant leaps into new environments with different teachers, administrators, and rules.

    Many colleges require students to have a meal plan, especially if they live on campus. Meal plans vary among colleges, but most will give students a certain number of dining hall meals per week. Students may also be able to add flex dollars to use at the campus food court or other locations. The larger the school is, the greater flexibility students may have.

    Students who choose their meal plan carefully may be able to cut college costs by selecting the plan that is best for them, according to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

    By Sheree Priddy

    LaRue County Public Library

    Many of us have heard the old adage, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

    There are numerous applications of this truism in our lives. According to knowyourphrase.com, it dates back at least as far as June, 1867, and is explained this way: One should not form an opinion on someone or something based purely on what is seen on the surface, because after taking a deeper look, the person or thing may be very different than what was expected.
