All too often, alcohol and drugs play a role in prom and high school graduation events. In an effort to encourage substance-free year-end celebrations, AAA Ohio Auto Club awards $250 Year-End Celebration Grants, each year, to area schools. This year, Logan Elm High School is one of seven schools to receive one of these grants.
In a letter of intent, Logan Elm High School Senior class officers Shelby Seimer, Haley Phillips and Alivia Butler said they plan to use the money to purchase a grand prize to give away at the end of their after-prom celebration on April 25. This year, they plan on holding the event in the high school gym to enhance student safety.
“The Logan Elm High School administration and staff were very concerned for the students’ safety last year because it [after prom] was a twenty-mile drive from school,” wrote the students. “Our mission is to entice our fellow students to come and stay at after-prom the entire time by making this grand prize available only to those present at 2:25 a.m.”
Dear Parents and LEHS Seniors,
It is difficult to believe that we are now approaching the end of the 2014-2015 school year. Without a doubt, the Class of 2015 has represented our school and community proudly. It has been a privilege to work with your child and we appreciate all that you have done to work with us. We thank you!
There is, however, still much work to be done and we will continue to work closely with you and your child to help make the final grading period a success. The expectations for the Class of 2015 to finish their high school careers in a positive and productive manner remain high.
As we approach the final months, we have numerous events involving the Class of 2015. Please read the important information below carefully. If you have questions please contact the high school office.
