  • Unique clubs in LCS

    Two clubs in the LaRue County School System are exemplary of the diversified interests of the district’s students.

    Natalie Detre, Art Club adviser at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School, wants her club members to delve into their projects—literally.

    “All art is hands on, hands in, messy fun,” she said. “It is sand art drawings, clay, papier-mache, mixing water and markers.  Students have created ornaments, masks and more.”
