Reading Olypmics

On April 9, a prime group of LCMS students competed in the Bucks County Reading Olympics celebration of books. Our scholars spent months reading dozens of books and devoured more than 25,000 pages of text. That's a lot of work, and it paid off with a blue ribbon. The team earned a whopping fifty-five points, one of the highest in the tournament. It was great achievement, and the kids are already preparing for next year's competition. Congratulations!

Log College Brad Fox Fundraiser


On Friday June 14th, Log College students will have a great opportunity to support the Officer Brad Fox Foundation! The Foundation honors the memory of Brad and the dedication and sacrifice of every man and woman dedicated to protecting our communities and our country. Brad was a Warminster native, William Tennent graduate and USMC Veteran who served two tours in Iraq. When he came home, he became a member of the Plymouth Township Police Department where he was killed in the line of duty in 2012. His legacy lives on with the foundation whose fundraising activities has generated over $250,000 for various charities.

Chinese Visitors

In a few weeks, Log College (along with Klinger and McDonald) will be hosting student visitors from China.
