Happenings at Log College

While winter has been largely a bust so far for snow lovers, we are glad that we have been able to consistently be in school throughout the winter months so far here at Log College! Hopefully Phil was right, and Spring will be here on time this year! Students have been involved in a plethora of activities at Log in the past two weeks including the Spelling Bee, Geography Bee, Cheerleading competitions, and sporting events. Our boys basketball season is now in swing, and believe it or not, spring sports physicals are right around the corner. Second marking period report cards are now available on Skyward. If you have any questions about your children's grades, please contact their teachers.


Thank you for supporting your children in their education! We here at school can't do this without your help!

LCMS Geography Bee

On Thursday, January 17, Log College Middle School held its annual Geography Bee. Eleven students advanced to the school wide competition. The National Geographic Society sponsors this Geography Bee each year. They supply the questions for the school bee and the finalist takes a state exam online. This year’s winner, Sanjeev Pandith, a 7th grade student, was also the school winner last year. He will take the exam for qualification in the Pennsylvania State Contest. Last year, Sanjeev did well enough on the online exam to qualify for the state level in Harrisburg where he represented Log College extremely well. Skylar Cataldi, am 8th grader, came in second and Ethan Colon, a 6th grader, came in third. Congratulations to all participants!


The National Geographic Society has a tremendous website with many geography games, maps, and challenges. If you enjoy geography yourself or want to check it out with your child, log onto their website at www.nationalgeographic.com.

LCMS Spelling Bee

On January 23, the Log College Middle School student body participated

in a school-wide spelling Bee. With Mr. Noel McManus pulling off a superlative

Emcee, the talent was great this year, and the competition

was nail-bitingly close. After a long and tough final round, 8th grader Keith Thompson was crowned our Bee Winner, spelling the word dissertation. Great job Keith!

Log College Cheer

Congratulations to the Log Cheerleaders for taking 1st place at the CB East Invitational on January 26th. The girls were up against all but one Central Bucks team and stole a landslide victory. The girls put on a top notch performance!

As if first place was not enough, they also won the best tumbling award for the day. This award was based on the amount, frequency and synchronization of their flips. They beat out all teams that performed including both CB West and South High Schools. Well done ladies!

Log-A-Thon

Our annual Log-A-Thon is coming up on Thursday, February 21st! We are looking for parent volunteers to help with the event and also for basket donations! Please contact Mrs. Ciliberto if you are interested in volunteering or donating a basket! She can be reached at cilimi@centennialsd.org

A Message from Mr. Golderer Regarding Vaping

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thanks to support from our superintendent, we are happy to provide you with a "Vape Educate" online program. In our schools and community, vape use is increasing among our youth. At the middle school level, we will be teaching students about the dangers of vaping and are looking to hold an informative parent evening in conjunction with WTHS and our sister middle school in the near future.

Your child will be provided access to the Vape Educate Program through his/her school email account over the next few days, and we would strongly encourage you to complete this program together with your child. The entire program is approximately three hours long and provides a certificate upon completion. At the middle school level, we will also require any students who violate our policy to complete the course after school hours.

Thank you for partnering with us on this venture. Together, we can help educate and guide our children to healthy choices.

Sincerely,

Mr. Patrick Golderer
