I am a new Teacher at Logan, and am have so far been impressed with the principal and staff at the school. The principal has been very accessible, answering every email I've submitted, and sat down with me to discuss a game plan for the music program. The staff are friendly, and many volunteered their after hour time to host an after school winter concert for the students, which went very well. Parent involvement is on the upswing, and will be the key to making this a great school. students by and large need to develop better study habits but there is great promise here. The school is also very safe, very litlle fighting,profanity, etc..There is a parent organization and the president is very involved with good ideas. It could become a five star school, if more parent involvement happens with academics.

I have been impressed by the warmth and enthusiasm I have seen in the staff and administrators of this school. These professionals have been very approachable and I have had no problem getting answers to questions and concerns that I have expressed. Additionally, parent participation appears to be high, and the last scheduled 'slumber party / literacy' event that they held had an incredible turnout. I think this school emanates a high level of school spirit and ethics and I appreciate their assemblies and other activities geared toward teaching children to have strong character. On a more personal basis, my daughter has had a very good transition from an independent kindergarten, to first grade at this school, and her teacher has been very supportive and encouraging of her efforts. I am truly grateful for the outstanding efforts of the teachers, administrators, and other parents, all of whom contribute to making this a great institution.

I as a parent love this school because they not only take the time to teach the children they also make them feel as if they are part of something and count no matter how old they are. They each attend music, art and gym class, as well as computer class (one room for K-3 and one room for 4-6). Parents are really involved in our school and there is an atmosphere that they want the parents to be involved. You can sit in on a child's class if you want to and your child won't feel penalized for you doing so. The teachers care about the students and it really shows compared to other schools in our district.
