The Dinner Table Projects
Table Talks is an extension of The Dinner Table Project geared toward having meaningful conversations with your teenager. We know that open communication and a strong relationship with your child starts at a young age; however, the conversation needs to continue into adolescence and young adulthood. We're here to help! Click here to access the monthly newsletters provided by The Dinner Table Projects!
The Youth Service Center works with their Advisory Council and encourages involvement from various areas of the community. These include the following:
- Resource Providers
- Local Businesses
- Human Service Agencies
- School Staff
Meetings are held bi-monthly at the Spencer County Extension Office. Meetings are open to the public. Please call for more details.
All transportation changes must be made in writing. For the safety of the students, it is recommended that transportation notes be sent in with the student at the beginning of the day. There will be no transportation changes made after 2:00 pm. However, if an emergency occurs and a transportation change is needed to be made after 2:00 pm a parent/guardian MUST bring in a note containing all information needed to change transportation. The note may be delivered to the middle school office, faxed to the school, or emailed to Chris Brown at David.Brown@spencer.kyschools.us. It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to make sure the fax/email is received by the school. Please make sure you receive confirmation that it was turned into the front office.
