Monday kicks off Logan’s introduction of its first-ever Academic Achievement Week to celebrate and encourage classroom success.
This year, Principal Amy McNamara replaced the annual Open House in favor of a week celebrating the achievements of Logan students all across the board.
“This is a week we are celebrating achievement and taking time to encourage all of our students to continue after graduation to educate themselves,” said McNamara in a staff email Monday.
Next Monday, first period teachers will pass out certificates to “On a Roll” students. These students have a 2.0-2.99 GPA and are on track for graduation, meeting graduation requirements.
Tuesday, these same teachers will pass out certificates to students on the Honor Roll, with 3.0-3.74 GPAs. On Wednesday, Principal’s Honor Roll students with 3.74-3.99 GPAs will receive certificates from their first period teacher.
An assembly will be held during sixth period Thursday at the Center for the Performing Arts for students who are on the Superintendent’s Honor Roll, with a 4.0+ GPA. Students will receive invitations, and New Haven Superintendent Kari McVeigh will hand out certificates to these students.
Finally, Thursday’s Academic Achievement Night marks the end of the event. Students and parents are invited to Logan for a fundraising dinner from 5-6 p.m.
After, attendees are encouraged to visit teacher classrooms, attend a variety of workshops and watch a number of performances.
Some workshops include information on UC/CSU A-G requirements, financial aid, standardized testing and community college.
