  • School comes together to support soldiers

    When Lisa Story, a librarian at North Park Elementary School, and her students in the Student Technology Leadership Program organized a care package competition, Story said she did not have a firm goal in mind. Her intention was to collect enough items to send care packages to students’ deployed parents.

    “I wasn’t even thinking of our faculty,” Story said. “I was just wanting to at least get the packages to our students’ parents who are deployed, but anything other than that was going to be a bonus.

  • ECA seeks new principal

    What started as an expected brief stint as principal at Elizabethtown Christian Academy for Dan McCamish has turned into a much longer tenure at the school.

    Now, McCamish, a 30-year Hardin County Schools’ veteran, is ready to exit and the school is looking for a new principal.
    ECA Business Director Bobby Thompson said the school searched for a principal last summer, interviewing four people.

    “We just didn’t like what we had,’’ he said of the candidates.

  • The high cost of being a senior

    Senior year in high school is a busy time with a senior trip, prom and graduation to think about.

    And it can be a costly time for students and parents as they wade through a flood of buying opportunities to mark the final year of grade school.

    Making plans for prom, class trips and applying to colleges doesn't come cheap, but many students and parents who don’t fully realize the price tag that comes with senior year may be feeling sticker shock by the time graduation arrives.

    Woodland Elementary School is using its on-site nature preserve to answer the question, “How does your garden grow?”

    Woodland students gathered Monday to plant fruit and vegetable seeds in the school’s nature preserve. The preserve, a wooded area that sits in front of the school building, allows students the opportunity to see classroom lessons in action.

  • North Hardin students form chain of hope

    “I have this theory that if one person can go out of their way to show compassion, then it will start a chain reaction of the same,” Rachel Scott, Columbine shooting victim, on the Rachel’s Challenge website.

    Rachel Scott was the first person killed in the Columbine High School shooting in 1999.
    North Hardin High School students recently took up her challenge and a paper chain long enough to more than circle the football field was their evidence. Each slip of paper noting an act of kindness.
