What's Happening at Log?
Finally, the faculty, staff, and administration of Log College would like to wish you all a happy and restful summer. These past few months have been stressful to everyone for different reasons, and we all deserve a little time to relax, regroup, and recharge! We miss everyone, and are hopeful to see smiling faces come through the doors of Log College in September!
Mr. Golderer and Mr. Drago
Hey Log College students! We’ve made it through the end of the year! I hope our Flashback Friday post has been a bright spot in your week. Below is our final baby photo. The answers from this week and last week are posted below. Try to guess who this might be before you scroll down! Have a great summer LCMS families!
This Week's First Clue
I was raised in Philadelphia with my mom, dad, and brother. I grew up in a row home with about 50 houses on my "block." There were a lot of kids my age. Even though no one had a yard, we played outside until dark almost every night. We could walk to two different playgrounds. We played every sport imaginable, rode bikes, and played manhunt. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Who am I?
This Week's Second Clue
Who am I?
Last Week's First Answer
I was raised in Northeast Philadelphia. I was an only child, but I had lots of four-legged companions. I took care of two dogs and a cat. When I was a kid, I loved to play with Cabbage Patch dolls and listen to the Spice Girls. Who am I?
Answer: Ms. Eidemuller, Spanish Teacher
Rube Goldberg Machines
Since 7th grade classes couldn't do the Amplify Engineering Unit from home, we took the opportunity to study machines - simple and compound. We finished our year by building a Rube Goldberg. Rube Goldberg was a writer/cartoonist who, as a joke, built complex machines to do very simple tasks.
The game, Mouse Trap, is a great example of a Rube Goldberg. Rather than just putting the cage over the mouse to catch it, the game involves a series of chain reactions in order for the cage to cover the mouse.
Students in Mrs. Ciliberto's classes designed and built their own Rube Goldberg. Some students had a ball land in a cup, one person turned on a light, others were able to turn the page of a book, and others built a machine to share a message.
The creativity and thought put into the machines was amazing! The winners of the 7th Grade Science Rube Goldberg contests are Nicole Irwin, Owen Krompascik, Mya Sebastian, and Caoline Torres-Granados.
From Our Librarian
Thank you for helping to track down our 500 books that were on loan when school closed March 13th. LCMS Library materials should be returned with the Chromebooks or at any of the summertime CSD Food Truck and Food Pantry locations. Additionally, the CSD Food Pantries will offer free books for students!
Please see the images and links below for information from the library!
I hope everyone has a great summer and finds a new friend in a great book.
I'll miss you!

From the Nurse
During Chromebook drop off and locker clean-up Please send in any paperwork for the nurse especially updated immunization records for 6th graders going into 7th.
As medical and dental offices are slowly opening up, Please schedule your child's appointment so we can continue to uphold the state mandates for pupils to attend school in a safe manner. This includes up to date immunizations.
All students entering Grade 6 will need a physical examination. The physical examination form needs to be completed by your child’s doctor and returned to the school nurse. For insurance reasons the physical can be turned in throughout the school year.
All 7th graders are required to have a Tdap (given at ages 11-12) and a Meningococcal immunization at the Start of 7th grade (usually given with 6th grade physical). PLEASE send in your child’s updated immunization record when their chrome book is returned.
Students entering Grade 7 will need a dental examination. The dental examination form needs to be completed by your child’s dentist and returned to the school nurse.
Hope to see everyone in September. Please continue to wash your hands, wear a mask and obey social distancing. Have a happy and safe summer!
Log College Middle School
Log College Middle School opened in September 1967 as a Junior High School serving seventh and eighth grade students. The school is named after the original school in Warminster, “Log College” established in 1727 by William Tennent, one of the original trustees of Princeton University. The school’s mascot is the Colonial in honor of the first Log College.
Log College became a Middle School in 1991 educating sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. In 2000 the school was recognized by the US Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School. Log College currently serves approximately 630 sixth through eighth graders.
