Hudson Spurlock CKEC luncheon 2016 awardThe Central Kentucky Educational Cooperative has tapped Sara Hudson and Sarah Spurlock as Outstanding Educators because of their strong teamwork at Leestown Middle School. They accepted their awards at a May 27 CKEC luncheon.

Spurlock teaches special education, and Hudson is her general education partner in their co-taught math class. They have participated in the Co-Teaching for Gap Closure initiative for several years.

As she has developed her knowledge of math content, Spurlock has incorporated multiple models of co-teaching in their classrooms. Meanwhile, Hudson has learned more about students with special needs. The two instructors often practice small-group parallel teaching or station teaching to meet students’ needs more effectively. They also present differentiated activities and use data effectively, according to Amanda Dennis, interim director of Special Education in Fayette County Public Schools. “They never consider any assessment summative – even end-of-unit assessments. They continue to revisit content often until students master the content, which happens regularly,” Dennis said.


 

2016 Leestown Festival OrchestraCongratulations to the Leestown Festival Orchestra (7th and 8th Graders) who received a "Superior Rating" on Saturday May 28 at the Music in the Parks Festival in Loveland High School, Loveland, OH. A big congratulations also to the Leestown 6th Grade Orchestra who received an "Excellent Rating"!!!

Everyone played very, very well. They behaved even better! The staff at Loveland High School gave the students numerous compliments on their conduct and manner. We are so happy for them!! The Festival Orchestra rehearsed together only twice before the event, but they really focused and gave their best effort. They acted, looked, and behaved in a distinguished manner at King's Island Amusement Park as well. It did rain a little at the park but the lines were very short for the rides!

At the awards ceremony in the park, our students stood up, cheered and applauded for each school and soloist who received an award. It was a beautiful sight to witness! They danced, they sang, they screamed, and they jumped for joy when they were awarded the Esprit de Corps Award!

Abby Clay and Sara Hudson were the most fabulous teacher-chaperones!! Thank you for your extra hard work with us. Our parents were amazing with our kids, too. We had 9 parents and a grand-parent go with us: Dana Mefford, Rick and Janiene Smith, Alan Thomas, Aaron McDowell, Shirley Thomason, and Kelly and Joshua Reid.

Way to go, Chargers!
