Bourbon County students and their smiling faces returned back to school after a long winter break on January 3, 2023. Seeing friends, socializing with teachers, and getting back to daily routines is always an exciting time for both students and staff. Students at North Middletown Elementary came back strong with a fourth-grade class completing a science project about weathering, erosion, and deposition. 

Later in January, Bourbon County High School hosted their winter art show. There were a lot of amazing student projects. The art exhibits showcase the work that students at Bourbon County High School are capable of producing. Some of the most notable exhibits were the clay sculptures, watercolor paintings, and multiple medium artworks. Students and community members alike were able to have fun while perusing artwork and interacting with friends. If you like art, then the art show is the place for you. Luckily, each year Bourbon County High School students host an art show, so plan now to attend next year! 

As we know, prom season is quickly approaching and Jennie O’Donnell is in charge of the Colonel Prom Closet. If you are in need of a tux, prom dress, or accessories visit room 127 at the Bourbon County High School. The Prom Closet has a variety of sizes and different style gowns such as mermaid, ball gowns, and tight fitting. However, the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and the Youth Service Center (YSC) are hosting a fashion show for students in February and are still in need of donated tuxes and dresses for students in need. If you have any donations for prom, please drop the items off to the Bourbon County High School. If you have any questions, please contact Jennie O’Donnell at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing what is in store for the Colonels this year!
