Bellamy Named Middle School Teacher of Year

FROM OWENSBORO MESSENGER-INQUIRER - Keith Lawrence Owensboro, Ky.

But there was a time when that would have seemed unlikely. "I didn't plan on teaching," Bellamy said Monday. "I worked a lot of jobs after college and I got married.

Advantages of Online Registration
Advantages of Online Registration

Over the next few weeks, we will be showcasing the advantages of online registration that will be implemented for the 2018-19 school year on March 19. This week: everyone at the same time! In the past, registering multiple children for a single school year has been a time-consuming process. With the online registration platform, families will be able to register every school-aged child in one sitting, even if they attend school in different buildings. In addition, families will be able to share health issues and concerns prior to the start of the school year. This allows our health staffs to be prepared to ensure every student has a healthy, safe first day of school.
