Bucks County Tour of Honor

Eighth grade band students from Log College spent the day at Washington D.C. on Monday, October 7, 2019, honoring Bucks County veterans and exploring our nation's capital. Students viewed a wreath laying ceremony at the Korean War Memorial, saw the Lincoln Memorial, and traveled by the Washington Monument. Students also had the opportunity to tour The Smithsonian National Museum of American History. In the afternoon, they played patriotic music at the World War II Memorial as a part of a ceremony honoring all veterans. The veterans present appreciated Log College’s tribute to them and students represented our school and district very well!

PIAA Eligibility

Now that the school year is under way as well as our sports seasons, the school runs weekly eligibility reports on all athletes. In addition to academic eligibility, students must meet attendance and behavioral guidelines for their continued participation in PIAA athletics. PIAA encourages the ideal of the 'student athlete,' which we wholeheartedly support. If you have any specific questions please feel free to contact Mr. Swartwood, Athletic Director, or Mr. Drago, Assistant Principal.

From the Nurse

Reminder: Students may not carry any medications including over the counter at any time. The only exception is an epi-pen or inhaler with doctor's orders stating they have permission to carry. All medication taken during school hours must be dispensed by the school nurse. For further information, please see Centennial School District Policy 210-USE OF MEDICATIONS.

All students in Grade 6 need a physical examination, this should include the required immunzations for 7th grade (Tdap & Meningococcal). The physical examination form needs to be completed by your child’s doctor and returned to the school nurse.

Students in Grade 7 need a dental examination. The dental examination form needs to be completed by your child’s dentist and returned to the school nurse. Forms are available on our website or in the nurse's office.
