A Message from the PBIS Team

The 200 Club would like to thank the students who organized the Log College Winter Games held on December 21st! Zach Stanfield, Jamar Mitchell, Julia Marinucci, Malachi Generette, and Alexa Hirsch showed their leadership skills by creating the events and recruiting fellow students to assist. Thank you to Joey Hargraves, Samai Hall, Nathan Quinones, Bridgette McEachern, Gigi DeDimito, Dariel Tiburcio, George Marion, Kirstin Kania, and Izzy Jones for helping. A special thank you to the Log College Cheerleading squad for their amazing performance to kick off our Winter Games!

Social Media Use in Adolescents

There has been increasing research on the effects of social media on adolescents. While social media is a very powerful and useful tool, it does have a dark side and has been shown to increase depression and anxiety in teenagers. Below is a link to a brief article from The Anxiety and Depression Association of America that talks about some of the dangers inherent in social media use. It is one of many articles that are available to read and talk about with your children.

Eighth Grade Breakfast

Please review this link regarding the June 2019 8th Grade Recognition Breakfast. The breakfast serves as a way for students and their families to reflect upon their experiences at Log College. In addition to the breakfast, some students will receive individual awards. Today, 8th grade students received permission forms from their 1st Period Teachers. I urge you to take a look at the form since payment is involved to attend and the event has been traditionally well-attended.

Winter Weather

Winter is here, and while it has been fairly mild so far, it is highly likely that winter weather is going to be a very real possibility in the coming weeks and months. Please stay tuned to local news outlets, Centennial SD's social media accounts, and Log College's social media accounts for updates on delays and cancellations.

Attendance Procedures

Please be sure to turn in absence excuse notes within three (3) days of your child's return to school. Absences will remain unexcused until notes or turned in or if the three day window is exceeded. If your child has 10 or more cumulative days of absence, a doctor's note is required for all absences past 10 days.

Absence excuse notes can also be emailed to Log College at the following address:

For family trips during the school year, a Family Trip Request Form must be submitted to the Principal at least two weeks (10 school days) prior to your trip. All requests submitted less than 10 days prior will be denied.
