  • Red Ribbon Week at Clear Creek

    Students at Clear Creek made a difference during Red Ribbon Week. More than 1,000 food items were donated by kindergarten-through-fifth-grade classrooms to be given to the Shelby County Backpack Project. Healthy competition spurred on Bland’s kindergarten class to be the winner of a popcorn party with 165 food items donated. The winners of classroom door decorations with the theme of “I CAN make a Difference when I am Drug Free” were Kurz’s fifth-grade class and Gilbert’s second-grade class. They will enjoy an extended recess.

  • Southside goes to UL

    Southside Elementary fifth-graders visited the University of Louisville in October. They attended a college class, visited the U of L Library, sat in an auditorium and ate lunch at the student activity center. They were able to ask questions to college students and had reflection time to write in their journals about their day at the University of Louisville. Questions students asked were: “How do they know when to go to class?” “Where’s the principal?” “How do the students know when to go to lunch?”

  • No snoozing

    Even though the title of the book was zzZZZzz, kindergarten children had no trouble staying awake to hear the book read by Sarah Price, library media specialist at Wright Elementary.

  • Crusade assistance

    A $64,000 grant from WHAS Crusade for Children helps Shelby County Public Schools purchase technology assistance equipment for students with special needs. For example, at Wright Elementary, James Robinson left the classroom with an instructional assistant carrying an IPad purchased with WHAS grant monies. He knew exactly how to turn it on, retrieve a story, turn on the sound and flip the screen to read a book out loud for him and a kindergarten buddy.

  • Signs of the time

    West Middle principal Lorri Stivers (front row) turned to look at Simpsonville Elementary fifth-graders who vow to go to middle school on or above grade level in reading and math. Their vow is based on Simpsonville's 100 academic index and the T-shirts they were wearing: Simpsonville Bobcats + West Middle Warriors + Collins Titans = College and Career Ready.

  • Newcomers luncheon

    Students new to the school enjoy eating a pizza lunch and getting to know the staff and each other at the “newcomers luncheon,” held each month at Clear Creek Elementary. This seems to help ease the transition of coming into a new school and making new friends. Marty Overstreet, counselor, chats with the students over pizza.
