Ms. Holly's Preschool class

We have been learning about how butterflies grow and change since our unit last month. Today all of our butterflies had emerged from their chrysalis so we took them outside to release them.

Delivery of Air Purifiers

HEPA air filter with ActivePure cell technology.

Highland Turner Elementary is fortunate enough to have a Board of Education that is as concerned about our students' and staffs' health as much as we are.  They voted at the last board meeting to provide a HEPA air filter with ActivePure cell technology for every classroom, gym, cafeteria and office at Highland Turner.  Board member, Anna Morris, and two members from the bus garage helped unload the air filters and distribute them throughout our building.  In a matter of a few minutes, everybody in the building was able to breathe cleaner air.  If you see Mr. Watts, a Board Member, or anyone who had a role in this purchase out and about, say thank you for this much needed purchase!  We are blessed with the best in Breathitt County!

First Grade Happenings

First graders seem happy to be back to in person classes. Our class is currently made up of 19 in person students and 5 students who continue to work virtually. Health and safety continue to be our number one priority. We are working diligently to make sure all standards are addressed and mastered. This school year has been a unique one but we have strived to make it a successful one.

Social Emotional Learning
Thelma Crase

Hello! My name is Jessica Howard, and I am a counselor here in the Breathitt County School System. I am so very excited to be able to work with our students on Social Emotional Learning. During these difficult and uncertain times, we must take every opportunity to equip our students with skills that promote successful behavior in the classroom and beyond. Social Emotional Learning (SEL) increases the student's ability to understand and regulate their own emotions and behaviors, their ability to understand, empathize, and show compassion for others including those who may have different backgrounds and cultures. It also increases their ability to create and maintain healthy relationships while increasing their capacity for responsible decision making.
