The Wizard of Oz

This year’s musical, The Wizard of Oz, was performed March 8th and 9th at Log College. All students at LCMS were given the opportunity to audition for the various parts. After the audition process, the cast and crew rehearsed several days each week in the months leading up the performances. Mr. Golderer and Mr. Drago even got in on the fun and had cameo appearances in the tornado scene! The talents of Ms. Leonx, Mrs. Catalano, Mrs. Schenfelt, Ms. Farrell, Mrs. Tyson, and Mrs. Janser are greatly appreciated in putting this incredible production together! The cast and crew put on three incredible performances that were very well attended and received. Congratulations and a job well done to all of the talented young ladies and gentlemen involved!

Each State Champion will advance to the National Championship and compete for cash awards and college scholarships. In 2019, the national champion will receive a $25,000 college scholarship, $1,000 in cash, a lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society, and an all-expenses-paid Lindblad expedition to the Galápagos Islands aboard the National Geographic Endeavour ll; second place will receive at $10,000 college scholarship and $1,000 in cash; third place will receive a $5,000 college scholarship and $1,000 in cash; and seven runners-up will receive $1,000 in cash each.

Reading Olympics

In April, a group of fifteen Log College Middle School students will compete in the annual Bucks County Reading Olympics. This is a year-long endeavor that requires students to select books from a list of thirty titles and prepare for a team quiz-styled competition. The Reading Olympics program culminates in a special evening celebration where about sixty teams from around the county are invited to attend and participate. Ms. Shoulberg is working with these book loving students to get ready for the spring competition
