Members of the James Logan Forensic team are sharpening their skills for next year during the summer session. Logan's Summer Session is a six-week program that allows students who failed to do so during the regular school year to recover up to 10 credits of classwork, or two class' worth.
Students who have not passed the California High School exit exam can also take classes designed to assist them in get ready to take the exam. The next offering of the the Summer CAHSEE exam is in July.
Thirty-seven classes are offered this session and 1,320 students have registered for the session, according to Summer Session Principal Joe Angeles.
Teacher Peter Kolesnikov, an art teacher during the regular school year, is teaching English Two this summer.
Kolesnikov said that there's not much difference in the atmosphere during the summer classes. "I have not observed any difference in the way students behave or the atmosphere or the mood in the classroom," since the session started on Monday, he said. It's "just another day. Smooth sailing so far."
The program started Monday and ends August 3. Seniors who needed Summer Session credits to graduate will have graduation ceremonies on August 3.
Also on campus this summer is the James Logan Forensic Team's summer camp.
The James Logan Summer Session office is located in House 3/6 office on the James Logan Campus.
