  • Eminence Elementary School Student of the Week

    Emma is a 2nd grader at Eminence Elementary.

    What is your favorite subject?

    Math. I like the fun activities we do with math problems. Today we went out side and measured a house, the monkey bars, the high climbing wall and the low climbing wall with a meter stick.

    What do you do for fun?

    I play outside. We act like we build stuff in the sandbox and the clubhouse my dad built. I also like to throw balls for my dog Champ.

    How many pets do you have?

    The center’s conference — “From Unsettling to Resettling: What Will it Take to Resettle America” — Friday at Louisville’s Brown Hotel emphasized the global need for solutions to industrial scale farming, responsible land stewardship and how destructive agricultural practices impact food production, resources and communities on a global scale.
