Welcome Back

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Log College Middle School, we would like to extend a welcome back to all of you for the 2019-2020 school year! We were busy at Log this summer preparing the building for the new school year, planning for this year's academics and activities, and of course preparing student schedules.

Log College has several means of communicating to families. These include e-Alerts, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Smore (this newsletter). While most of the communication will come out as needed, the newsletter will be out every other Friday. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school!

We are looking forward to another successful year!
