  • STEM students get to display ‘eggsiting’ experience to public

     HEBRON ESTATES - Bullitt County Public Schools students received an opportunity to branch out and come out of their shells thanks to a new STEM challenge at the 2017 District Science Fair.

    The district hosted its first district-wide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) challenge at Hebron Middle School for teams of students from BCPS middle and high schools.

  • Helping Others

    The Shepherdsville Santa program assisted over 114 families during the holiday season.

    Volunteers helped to prepare the food baskets. And local businesses assisted with making sure there were funds to provide the items to place in the food and toy baskets.

    A car show each fall is a major fund-raiser for the giveaway.

    This is the fifth year for Shepherdsville Santa.

  • Santa visits the fire department

    The Shepherdsville Fire Department hosted Breakfast with Santa. It has become annual event as children and their families can meet Santa and enjoy a nice meal.

  • BRINGING IN the NEW YEAR

        Just because midnight might be too late for the younger crowd to stay up, doesn’t mean they should have to miss out on counting down to a new year.
        The Bullitt County Public Libraries created their own solution: A Noon Year’s Eve Party.
        With plenty of noisemakers, balloons and bubbles to spare, participants gathered at Ridgway Memorial Library in Shepherdsville to dance, eat cupcakes, play games and, most importantly, ring the New Year at a more age-appropriate time.
