  • Chrysalis is a weekend of growth

    By Caleb Moore

    Ahh, fall. The time of the year when leaves begin to change, the air begins to cool, and holidays seem to come nonstop. But for some students from Hardin and surrounding counties, autumn means more than breaking out the jackets and sipping warm beverages.

    More than 40 teenagers from the surrounding area will be taking part in Chrysalis for the first time. Chrysalis is a Christian retreat that has been a biannual event for more than 20 years, with this fall’s event marking the 48th retreat.

  • Orchestra auditions challenge young musicians

    By Alexis Piscatello

    There are plenty of strings attached when you are a principal chair in an orchestra. Students are learning this in The Music and Arts Center for Cultural Learning’s Youth Orchestra this fall.

    For the first time, Sept. 26, the orchestra conducted auditions for the various orchestral chairs, with principal chair being the most advanced. In orchestras, like football and other team sports, each person is given a position that best suits their skill level. These positions are called chairs.

  • Are revealing Halloween costumes appropriate? Yes

    By SAVANNAH HABERMAN

    Female firefighters with jackets a little too tight, Little Bo Peep with her high stockings and skirt that’s a little too short and devil costumes with no sleeves, fish nets and red heels.

    Yes, I will agree, definitely not church appropriate.

    Have the Halloween costumes for girls gone too far? I don’t think so.

  • Are revealing Halloween costumes appropriate? No

    By Autumn Sandlin

    There are two main focuses on Halloween night, the candy and the costumes. Little kids have absolutely no problem going to the store, finding their costumes and dressing up to go trick-or-treating.

  • Teaching foreign languages is key ingredient in a quality education

    By DR. FRANK CALVANO

    You might be surprised to learn that, by percentage, most people in the world speak Mandarin Chinese. The second most natively spoken language in the world is Spanish.

    To keep up with our ever-changing global society, students must become foreign language learners. They need to be proficient in more than one language to be competitive in a global job market, to collaborate in global science initiatives and to participate in resolutions to world problems.

    A days-long field trip at Lincoln Trail Elementary School made the entire state its focus.

    The Kentucky field trip took students to Cumberland Falls, Mammoth Cave, Civil War battlefields and other locations as a way to study the history and geography of the state. It took them just across state lines, too.

    By Nannette Johnston

    Hardin County Schools celebrated more additions to our Distinguished Alumni group last week. Next to graduation and the daily activity of teaching and learning, the annual event is the finest of the year.
