Friendly Reminder! NO School for students November 24th-26th.
Mrs. Viele, along with her 3rd grade son Marcus, presented her fossils to the 3rd grade class as part of their Science class. Mrs. Viele travels to South Dakota during the summer to work with a group on fossil digs. On other breaks, you will find her with her family in Florida dredging the waters for fossils. She has dedicated an entire room of her home to her fossil collection, and even shares them and her experiences with her 1st grade class and her LES club.
Please share this reminder to our students and families! We are so encouraged to see the amount of items already donated at each school to benefit the Garrard Food Pantry! If you have not yet donated and would like to, there is still time! Each school has a designated employee and room number where items can be collected. We will be collecting items until this Friday, November 19th. Thank you for supporting our community!
The staff members of GCS are thankful and grateful for all of our students and families that make our school district great!

Hi! I am Tracie Bottoms, Lancaster Elementary Principal. I am in my 15th year at Lancaster Elementary and every year this school continues to strive to be the best. I have so many wonderful memories of the students that have passed through these halls, and I am blessed to be leading a wonderful group of children and staff. Lancaster Elementary teachers work hard every day to ensure our students are learning. This year has been extra challenging, but we are stepping up to that challenge! Virtual Learning is a means of learning, but we want to spend the time with the students doing hands on lessons, interacting in person with the students each day and forming lasting relationships.
Garrard County School System serves approximately 2500 students in Pre-K through twelfth grade. The three elementary schools are high-performing institutions preparing our students in grades Pre-K through five to enter middle school with strong basic skills and a broad knowledge of the state and national standards in core academic areas.
