  • The sun’s atmosphere: a wild mess of activity

    Like Earth, the sun has an atmosphere with layers in it. The outermost layer is called the corona, and it’s a wild mess of activity. Scientists have long known about the corona. It is home to some spectacular shows – giant eruptions called coronal mass ejections, loops, prominences and massive magnetic storms.

  • ON EDUCATING LARUE: Meet James Slaven, LCMS assistant principal

    LaRue County Middle School assistant principal James Slaven enters his new position with both administrative and classroom teacher experience.

    “This is my 18th year in education,” said the native of Monticello who graduated from Wayne County High School. “I taught a variety of math classes in middle and high schools for 14 years, spent one year in Louisville, five years at Allen County-Scottsville and 10 years at North Hardin.”

  • Classified staff assist with overall learning

    The expression, “It takes a village to raise a child‚” is perhaps overused in educational circles, but it nonetheless is accurate when referring to the many employees with important and necessary roles in supporting instruction in LaRue County Schools.

    The classified staff, those not requiring teacher certification, perform various duties that, when combined with teacher instruction, provide optimum learning opportunities for the children in this community.

  • Welcome, teachers, to LaRue County Schools
