Log Remembers 9/11

On Wednesday, September 11th, the faculty, staff, and students at Log College took time to remember and honor the victims of the September 11th attacks 18 years ago. While none of the students were alive at the time of the attacks, all of our staff members vividly remember the day. In social studies classes, teachers took the opportunity to teach students about the events of 9/11 that have made such a profound impact on America.
MAP Testing

Centennial School District utilizes MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) Testing to gauge student performance, and help tailor instruction to help maximize student achievement. This link will take you to information from Centennial about MAP tests.
