Operation Preparation (March 16-20)

Operation Preparation is a joint effort of the Kentucky Department of Education and the Department of Workforce Development and provides a powerful opportunity for schools, students, parents and communities to collaborate in the process of effective advising and focus attention on the importance of planning for college and/or career.

During March, trained volunteer community advisors will meet one-on-one with every 8th- and 10th-grade student. The community advisor will use the student’s Individual Learning Plan or ILP (including career interest inventory and EXPLORE/PLAN results) to discuss the student’s:

  • career aspirations, required education/training and workforce skills
  • whether the student is on target to meet their goals
  • whether the student is taking the courses recommended to prepare them for a successful future

Pennies for Patients

Burgin FCCLA is very excited to announce we exceeded our Pennies for Patients school goal of $2,000.00. We were able to make a final donation of $2,173.96 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Out Middle/High school top class was the 8th grade donating $196.70. Our Elementary top class was Ms. Campbell’s 1st grade class with $369.43 donated. Both of these classes will be receiving a pizza party to celebrate their success. To celebrate as a school we will be duct taping Mr. LeMonds to the wall at the end of the school day on Friday March 13th. We greatly appreciate all who donated money to help save and improve lives of cancer patients.
