    DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME ENDS

  • Emotional message delivered to BAC students on life lessons

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Quinton Higgins has something to be thankful for every day that he wakes up.

    But, for a number of years, that wasn’t the sentiment felt by the Radcliff resident.

    Instead, Higgins was a mess. A self-proclaimed mess.

    Students at the Bullitt Alternative Center intently listened recently as Higgins told his story on how his life nearly ended at the age of 15.

  • Old Mill teacher gets chance to have ‘out of world’ experience

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - One Old Mill teacher got to have an “out of this world” experience this summer.

    STEAM instructor Richard Cox was chosen to participate in a 5-day course at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala., in June.

    Cox spent time each day doing hands-on math and science activities he could later implement in his classroom. But his favorite part was the “space missions.”

  • WIZARD of OZ comes to Bullitt Central

     Local students followed the Yellow Brick Road to the Bullitt Central Drama Club’s presentation of “The Wizard of Oz.”

    The Club performed the classic Frank E. Baum story live in the school auditorium.

    Two night-time performances were hosted for the public, along with two matinee shows in which area elementary school students were invited.

    Bullitt County Public Schools employees received free admission.

  • Honoring Our Veterans

     LTC David Walker was the special speaker at the annual North Bullitt JRTOC Veterans Day assembly.

    Cadets demonstrated the proper way to fold the American flag.

    WWII veteran Charles Howlett and VFW Post 5710 commander Danny Morrison were both in attendance for the ceremony.

  • Veterans honored at Roby

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Roby Elementary annually salutes retired and active military with a special Veterans Day presentation.

    This year’s ceremony included a Presentation of Colors by the Bullitt Central JROTC, along with a performance of “The National Anthem” by the Bullitt Central band.

    Students performed patriotic songs and read personal essays on the importance of Veterans Day and why it was celebrated.

  • Six BCPS staff members obtain mental health training

     Bullitt County Public Schools is receiving $99,970 for training six staff members as Certified Youth Mental Health First Aid Instructors.

    The nearly $100,000 is a portion of an $8.1 million grant awarded to the Kentucky Department of Education from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to support teachers, schools and communities in recognizing and responding to mental health concerns among youth.

  • Foundation hands out record $15,800 in grants

     The Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education awarded $15,857.88 grants to 14 schools during the October 2014 Board of Education meeting.

    This amount exceeds over $12,000 raised in 2013.

    “There were 24 proposals and reviewers narrowed that number down to 14,” according to District Volunteer Coordinator Judy Cederholm. “Of the finalists, nine received full funding for their requests while five received partial funding.”

  • Opportunities open up for college with new facilities

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The completion of college and career facilities to two high schools has provided more opportunities for students in Bullitt and surrounding counties.

    With Bullitt East and North Bullitt centers now completed, Donna Miller, director of the Bullitt County campus of Jefferson Community and Technical College, said there is even more opportunities for post-secondary education.

    The college has an arrangement with the Bullitt County Public School System to use classroom space in the evening hours at the two facilities.
