The James Logan Girls Soccer team have gone pointless in their last four games, have only one winning streak on the entire year, had four‑game losing streaks twice and own a miserable 5‑13‑4 Overall record.
Yet, they have managed to keep their chins up. After all, they are tied for third place in the MVALs.

District workers scrambled Monday to get classrooms in the new 400s building ready for students and faculty members to start using them tomorrow.
After the demolition of the 100s building halfway through the 2005-2006 school year, a project has been in the works over the last 2 years, and a few last touches are being put on the building before it is released to staff and students on January 29, the first day of the second semester. The weekend after the last day of final exams, the 26th through 28th, will be utilized for teachers who are scheduled to switch to the new building second semester. The Monday in which most of the transferring of furniture will occur is a semester break for students and a teacher workday for teachers.

José Julián Martí Pérez
(28 January, 1853–19 May 1895) was a leader of the Cuban independence movement from Spain and as well a renowned poet and writer. He is considered the national hero of Cuba and often referred to as the "Apostle of Cuban Independence". In many literary circles he is considered the Father of Modernismo predating and influencing Rubén Darío and influencing other poets such as Gabriela Mistral.
José Martí was born on January 28, 1853, in Havana, to a Spanish father Mariano Martí Navarro and Leonor Pérez Cabrera, a native of the Canary Islands. Marti was the oldest brother to seven sisters. When he was four years old, his family moved from Cuba to Valencia, Spain, but two years later they returned to the island where they enrolled José at a local public school. In this school, he met Rafael María de Mendive, a very influential person in Marti's political thoughts.
