This is where we will post news from the students in Kentucky.

February 18, 2010
Today is a sunny day in Cub Run. The high for today is 48. The low is supposed to be 33. Last week we had "blizzard like" snow which is very rare for us. We missed school 3 days last week and 2 days this week because of snow. We miss because most of our students ride to school on busses. The busses have to travel curvy and hilly country roads which snow plows cannot access.

Our questions to you:
1. How long does it take you to get to school?
It takes anywhere from ten minutes to almost an hour for some of our kids to get to school. Most of us live close to school but our bus routes take a longer time because of our rural roads. We have lots of back roads to travel on.

Today it is 40 degrees.

3. What kind of farms do you live on?
We live on different size lots and farms. For example, some of us live on a small lot and some of us live on larger farms ranging from 5 to over 100 acres. Some of us have livestock like cattle and some of us have horses. One student lives on a dairy farm.

4. How many students in your class? How many people in your school and city?
We have 20 students in our class, about 205 student from preschool to eighth grade, and 1,370 people in our community.
