Parents and caregivers of Christian County Public School students are encouraged to attend a free spaghetti dinner this week on their child’s behalf.
School Spokesperson Heather Aubin says the spaghetti dinner is being offered this Thursday during another Parent University session.
Aubin says this session is especially important for local parents and guardians to attend since their child’s future is at stake and information shared during Parent University is another tool for local students to reach their goals.
The spaghetti dinner is scheduled to take place this Thursday at 6 p.m. and will be held at the Christian County Board of Education.

A Clarksville teen who was reported missing since last week has been located and is unharmed.
Early this morning, the 9-1-1 call center received a phone call from Sierra Nicole Simpson, who told the dispatcher that she was unharmed and did not need a medic and requested to speak with a police detective.
Shortly after the phone call, Simpson was taken to a police precinct to talk with a detective and gave information that police say is sketchy and will require further investigation to fill in the gaps.
According to police, Simpson had preplanned to leave her residence and packed extra clothes to take with her when she went to school on Thursday, March 15th.
Simpson reportedly told police, after school was dismissed for the day last Thursday, she wandered around and was offered a ride from two unknown men and that she had been staying with them in Kentucky until she decided to return back to Clarksville this morning.
Police say the Clarksville teen decided to return home because she felt bad about the extensive efforts in locating her.
Simpson’s family was reportedly notified of her return and police say the investigation into her whereabouts during the time she went missing is still ongoing.
Fort Campbell officials with 1-59th Combat Aviation Brigade will be conducting yet another time honored tradition this week to officially mark the return of the brigade from their rendezvous with destiny in Afghanistan.
Military leaders will be hosting an uncasing ceremony Thursday, March 22nd at the local post, to mark the end of their year-long deployment overseas where soldiers assigned to the brigade provided rotary-wing aviation support throughout southern Afghanistan.
The 159th CAB was reportedly deployed off-cycle from the rest of the 101st Airborne Division and is the last brigade to return from its most recent mission in Afghanistan. Post officials say this was the second deployment for the brigade in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
Words can not describe the bond that’s shared between a soldier and his battle buddy, and it especially holds true with their spouses, who are often times wearing multiple hats while their loved one is deployed across the globe.
Nicole Carey, the wife of First Sergeant Christopher Carey, who is assigned to Fort Campbell’s 1-32 Cavalry Regiment says family-oriented events are a great way for military spouses to network and bond, something that will be useful when their soldier deploys to places like Afghanistan and Iraq.
According to Carey, she is thankful to have a great support group while her husband is deployed and that having someone who is going through the same thing is comforting to have, especially since her husband’s job often times requires him to be in harms way.
Serving in the military is a great honor that most citizens will never understand or get to experience.
A Fort Campbell organization is giving back to those who serve in the armed forces and their loved ones in a big way.
Family Readiness Support Assistant Helen Howard says despite months of planning and sleepless nights, she is proud to give military families a chance to enjoy themselves and forget about their worries for at least a day.
Several volunteers, including Howard recently organized an early Easter Egg Hunt for children whose parents are assigned to the 1-32 Cavalry Regiment.
Howard then went on to say that planning events like the mass Easter Egg Hunt took several months to plan and dozens of people to pull it off, but it was worth it in the end.
Hundreds of children attended the egg hunt, which took place over the weekend at the local post.
