Thursday, Dec. 8th, the Central Kentucky Blood Center Bloodmobile will be in Burgin's parking lot from 11 A.M. until 3 P.M.
Our fall blood drive wasn't very successful, so the pressure is on for the winter and spring blood drives. For the year, we need 80+ units in order to award a $250 scholarship to a deserving Burgin senior. We currently have 12 units, so that's a long way to go.
Please come out and support us on Thursday, December 8 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Burgin School parking lot. Not only will you be helping a deserving senior, but you will also be helping the Salvation Army with its Christmas Drive (ask about this when you give blood). Not to mention, you are saving lives. So, give the gift that counts three ways: helping a student afford a higher education; helping needy families have Christmas; and helping to save lives during the holiday season (when the need is greater). Merry Christmas!!!
Please call Sharon Perkins in the Family Resource Center at 859-748-5282 if you have any questions.

Congratulations to all students, staff, and parents!!
"One question we've always struggled with is what time we should get our little ones to bed. Go to bed too early, and they goof off, get hyper and never get to sleep. Go to bed too late, and we've got grumpy tired kids who can barely make it through the day" (SimpleMost.com).
One Wisconsin school has published a chart of suggested bedtimes, based on the age of the child. Check it out at the link below:
