  • North Bullitt 'selfie' selected best in country

     HEBRON ESTATES - When Bullitt County hears a big bang, it usually comes from Fort Knox.

    But the 'big bang' Tuesday came from North Bullitt High School, where students express themselves very well.

    The school's AP Calculus class, taught by former NB student Christy Bickett, won the "Express Your Selfie" contest presented by Texas Instruments (TI) and judged by actress Mayim Bialik, who plays Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler on television's top comedy, "The Big Bang Theory."

  • Raising awareness of domestic violence personal to NB student

    HEBRON ESTATES - North Bullitt High School student Morgyn Parrett mixed in a little purple with this year's Red Ribbon Week.

    While the red ribbon represents drug and alcohol awareness and prevention, the purple ribbon serves as a symbol of domestic violence awareness.

    Morgyn sold purple ribbons at lunch during Red Ribbon Week, with proceeds going to the Center for Women and Families Shepherdsville shelter house.

  • Eastside honored for behavior strategies

     Positive Behavior and Intervention Strategies (PBIS) implemented during the 2013-2014 school year have garnered Eastside Middle School state recognition.

    Kentucky Center for Instructional Discipline (KYCID) Director Mike Wafford dispatched Principal Troy Wood a congratulatory letter along with an emblem and a banner.

    Counselor Bryan Bates said earning the recognition in 2012-2013 as a School of Fidelity was special enough but this time is twice as nice.

  • Nine district schools earn PBIS honors

     Nine schools (six elementary and three middle) have been named Schools of Fidelity for their implementation of Positive Behavior and Intervention Strategies (PBIS) during the 2013-2014 school year.

    Brooks, Cedar Grove, Crossroads, Lebanon Junction, Overdale and Roby Elementary Schools along with Bernheim, Eastside and Hebron Middle Schools will receive a sticker as they have earned the honor before from the Kentucky Center for Instructional Discipline (KYCID).

    Schools attaining the honor for the first time earn a banner for display.

  • Central office renamed for longtime educator

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Frank Hatfield was never one to like a lot of publicity for himself.

    He was always more worried about placing the focus on the students and ways to improve their educational opportunities.

    But, on Saturday, it was Frank Hatfield’s day.

    The Bullitt County Public School Board unanimously agreed recently that the central office should now be known as the Frank R. Hatfield Administrative Center.

  • Barger comes home to lead Bullitt Lick Middle

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - One of Shepherdsville’s native sons, and a respected member of the Bullitt County Public Schools community, returns home to help educate his fellow residents.

    Lee Barger was named principal of Bullitt Lick Middle School, replacing Robert Fulk, who left at the beginning of the school year to fill the principal position at North Bullitt High School.

    The Bullitt Lick hiring brings Barger full circle on the educational level. He grew up attending Roby Elementary and the old Shepherdsville High School, graduating from Bullitt Central.

  • Plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables at Shepherdsville Elementary

  • Bernheim looks good thanks to some friends

     CLERMONT - Bernheim Middle School Data Manager Rebecca Huffman believes landscaping spruces up a location.

    Seeing the weeds, older decaying mulch and gnarly tree limbs around the front façade area, Huffman decided it was time to refresh the area.

    “Work was needed,” she said. “It has been awhile since any landscaping was done.”
