  • 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.

    Students were able to buy Christmas gifts in the Santa shop while local booths filled the lobby for the parents. 

  • Ugly Sweaters at Nichols

     One of the more unusual Christmas traditions has made its way to Nichols Elementary this year.

    The school hosted an ugly Christmas sweater day as part of a week-long celebration of the holiday season.

    Many students and staff brought out their best - or their worst - in seasonal garments.

    Some wore Christmas ties, while others created their own homemade sweaters and shirts.

    Some sweaters were actually nice, but some were as ugly as could be. Either way, spirits were high and fun was had by all.

    The play was directed by BLMS Arts and Humanities instructor Meredith Patton.

    A chili supper for patrons accompanied the performance.

     

  • Taking a Pie in the Face for Operation Santa

    This year, Overdale students had an opportunity to throw pies at area police officers and even Whitney Voyles, whose class donated the most toys. This earned her a pie.

  • Open House at Paroquet Springs
