  • Now that we have completed the projects of summer, experienced vacation memories with family, and enjoyed simple pleasures such as basking beside a pool or fishing from the lake, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to another exciting year of teaching and learning in Spencer County Schools.

    Teachers are busy organizing classrooms and planning lessons, while administrators are addressing last-minute preparations in eager anticipation of receiving children on August 10th.  


    School starts back in Spencer County next week, and students, parents and grandparents packed the Spencer County High School Saturday morning for the annual Health Fair and ReadiFest.

    Whether they were experienced students who were gearing up for their final year of high school, or youngsters just getting ready to begin their journey, there was an air of excitement that accompanies fresh starts.

    Students lined up to get free school supplies, get various health exams and gear up for the coming school year that starts on August 10.

  • Maybe you didn’t notice, but it has been hot. A couple of weeks ago our church helped out with ticket sales and parking at the Spencer County Fair, and we got to experience that heat first-hand. It was in the 90s every day, with heat indexes over 100 sometimes.
