What's Happening at Log College

It seems as though we blinked and now it's November! The first two months of this school year have been very positive here at Log College. Our CPM Math and Amplify Science programs are well under-way and our students seem to be responding well to the new programs. Our first round of MAP testing was completed at the end of September and our students are showing great growth academically. Data measures from the state have been released and are showing immense growth in our students' performance. Academically, we are rocking and rolling here at Log!


Our fall athletics seasons are wrapping up, with our annual Log Klinger matchups rounding out the seasons. Volleyball, field hockey, and soccer have all finished, with field hockey defeating Klinger, and soccer and volleyball losing to tough Klinger teams. Football plays next Thursday, November 7th, and we are hoping to bring the football title back to Log after a heartbreaking loss last year.


We have a number of abbreviated days and days off in the upcoming month, so please check the school calendar regularly. Below is a list of those upcoming dates and some other events here at Log College.


Finally, while it is only November, winter weather is approaching, so please check with Centennial SD and Log College social media pages for any updates regarding inclement weather in the coming months.


Happy November!

Technology Night at Log College

In case you missed it in our earlier eAlert, here is information regarding our upcoming technology night!

Screenagers

Technological advancements have created wonderful new connections and opportunities for the next generation. Recent studies, however, have shown an increase in anxiety and depression correlated with screen time in teenagers and adults alike. Our children are native to the digital age, but may still struggle with how to balance and appropriately use the technology that is available to them. Log College will be hosting a night dedicated to this topic through the documentary, Screenagers. The documentary takes a personal approach on the subject as physician, Dr. Ruston, explores concerns over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction in her own family.


Screenagers will be shown on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 6:30PM in the Log College Middle School Auditorium. This event is FREE of cost.


The LCMS students will have the opportunity to view the documentary in their classrooms the following week. Please contact the guidance department with any questions. "

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.


If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the school nurse at 215-441-6075 x14025


Thank you for your ongoing support, as we strive to keep the children of LCMS safe and healthy!
