GuitarClass Class strings students along

Although he admits to a little white lie 15 years ago, Henry County Middle and High School band director and music teacher Chip Anderson doesn’t regret telling it.

“A former principal, Mr. Weid, met with me and said he’d like me to teach more classes at the high school because at the time I only taught one class,” Anderson said. “I suggested guitar class. Mr. Weid asked me if I played guitar, and I lied through my teeth and said, ‘Yeah, sure I play guitar…kind of.’”

The next fall Anderson offered guitar class at HCHS and welcomed about 12 students into the band room. An accomplished musician who plays several instruments with varying degrees of proficiency, Anderson chose to teach guitar because he thought the instrument would have a wider appeal and would be more accessible for HCHS students.

HCMSHOPEArt Classic inspires HOPE

After reading “A Christmas Carol,” teachers at Henry County Middle School wanted their seventh grade students to be inspired and reminded of the themes that run throughout the play; hope, forgiveness, second chances and charity.

The theme project assigned to correlate with this unit allowed students to create artistic representations of those themes to express them in ways that words simply can't. In turn, students hope their art will inspire members of the community to be philanthropic.

Students Create Banner

For several years, school districts have been invited to participate in student banner displays at the Kentucky School Boards Association Conference in February.

Kim Ross’ art students at Henry County High School took on the challenge of creating a banner depicting this year’s conference theme of “Kentucky School Boards: Educate. Equip. Empower.”

This year’s banner, created by Sara Yount, Olivia Croucher and Anna Frazier, will be displayed at the conference as an  important reminder to attendees of the primary focus of this state’s schools – learning and learners.
