Students and Parents,
During the month of February we will begin our new state testing model. This model will be the new graduation requirement for our current freshmen, taking the place of the OGTs. One main difference for students and parents to understand is instead of taking one test for Math, Science, Social Studies, Writing, and Reading students will take a series of tests, 7 to be specific, over their career in high school. They will take these tests during and at the end of specific courses. These key courses were determined by the State of Ohio.( Algebra I, Geometry, Physical Science, American History, Government, English I, English II) Students will need to earn 18 points throughout High School in order to graduate. Students will be given a score of 1-5 on each of the 7 end of course exams and by the end of their senior year they must acquire a total of 18 points. Students will take all of these exams on the computer in the cafeteria or the library beginning this February.
The end of course exams are comprised of two sections, Performance Based (given in February) and End of Year (given in April and May). We have been working with students in classes and in large groups to prepare ourselves for this new style of testing. As we move closer to February we will notify students of the testing schedule. All freshmen will be tested throughout their high school career on the above courses. Any student currently enrolled in American History or Government will also be tested this year, per state law.
In closing, Logan Elm High School has a long tradition of academic excellence and we welcome the new challenges set forth by the State of Ohio.
Below each department of the High School has written a brief synopsis that will help you and your student prepare for the upcoming tests.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Steve Stivers (R – OH) today announced his nomination of three Pickaway County students to United States military academies. Stivers nominated the following students:
William Merrill received nominations to West Point and the United States Naval Academy. He attends Logan Elm High School and is the son of Frank and Lisa Merrill.
Caleb Welch was nominated to the United States Naval Academy, West Point and the Air Force Academy. He attends Teays Valley High School and is the son of Timothy and Kimberly Welch.
Nicholas Klitzka was nominated to the United States Naval Academy, West Point and the Air Force Academy. He attends William V. Fisher Catholic High School and is the son of Thomas and Patricia Klitzka.
“It is an honor to nominate these outstanding students to the U.S. military academies,” Stivers said. “As a Colonel in the Ohio Army National Guard, I thank these students for their interest in serving our nation in such a meaningful and important way. I also would like to thank Ohio’s 15th District Academy Review Board for their thoughtful recommendations and assistance in interviewing the students.”
In pursuit of a nomination to a U.S. military academy, students submit an application and are interviewed by Congressman Stivers’ Military Academy Review Board. The Board evaluates the students on the basis of academic performance, leadership ability and community involvement.
To receive a service academy nomination from Congressman Stivers, candidates must be an unmarried resident of Ohio’s 15th Congressional District, a United States citizen and between the ages of 17 and 23. Qualified persons interested in pursuing a nomination to one of the United States Service Academies should visit www.stivers.house.gov for more information, or contact Congressman Stivers’ Lancaster Office at (740) 654-2654.
Mr. Beavers's Psychology classes were given the option of creating a Children's Educational Video to replace their Midterm Exam. If an individual or group of students decided to create this video, it had to follow certain guidelines. For example, the videos needed to have four songs, two of which would be original. It also needed to incorporate proper techniques to capture the attention of toddlers...not an easy thing to accomplish. In essence, the creators of the video needed to be understand the basics of child psychology and educational theory. Finally, students needed to explain at the end of the video why their video was appropriate for capturing the attention of toddler-aged children.
Jackie Richardson, Madison Allen, and Emily Vanbuskirk wrote, produced, filmed, and performed the video that is linked above. Mr. Beavers was highly impressed with their work and wanted to share it with the rest of the Logan Elm community. Great job, ladies! Please continue to hone and develop your talents so we can enjoy more quality productions!
