Needing Volunteers for an 8th grade Reality Store on Nov. 6th

Looking for Volunteers for 8th grade Reality Store on Nov. 6th, during the school day 8:05 - 2:30
At Reality Store, 8th grade students get a glimpse of financial reality of being an adult. They are given a salary (based on their realistic job application - that will be coming home soon), and a number of children. They must take that salary and visit booths to determine what type of housing, clothes, food, groceries, utilities etc. they can afford. Our goal for them is to have a greater knowledge of what type of career they would like to have (and maybe find out that their 'dream job' won't pay the bills...) as an adult and will be able to set goals to achieve the right career. We want them to know the struggles we as parents face every month.
We are asking for your help to make the Reality Store a huge success for our students. It takes about 50+ volunteers to man the 19 booths.

If your schedule will only allow for part of a day, we can work around that. If you can help, please call or email Kathleen Sinkhorn. kathleen.sinkhorn@boyle.kyschools.us or by calling 236-4212 (the school number).

Volunteers will be served a light breakfast in the morning and lunch in between the sessions. There is nothing to prepare - We have everything you need once you get there. It is a fun program that you can SEE the light blubs going off in front of your eyes... "you mean we have to buy care insurance?" or  "child care is HOW MUCH??"

Thank You for considering this worth while program


Learning in Boyle County Won't Stop For Winter Weather

(FRANKFORT, KY) -- When the snow flies this winter, students in 13 Kentucky school districts will continue learning even when they aren’t at school.

The Kentucky Department of Education has approved waivers that allow the districts’ use of virtual or other non-traditional means of instruction when school is cancelled because of weather or another emergency. In most cases, students will participate in the snow day lessons online.

Boyle Mentioned in Two Recent Prichard Committee Posts

The Prichard Committee mentioned Boyle County Schools in their education blog this morning! We were also recently mentioned in an article written by the Prichard Committee highlighting MDC practices. The Prichard Committee is a group committed to promoting academic excellence in Kentucky. When the Committee first started, Kentucky was ranked very poorly in education. Years later, Kentucky is now recognized as a national leader in school improvement. Being recognized by this group is a huge honor.
