FORMS & DOCUMENTS
Students intending to participate in the second year of College Credit Plus, the successful program that provides Ohio students with the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school, can begin the notification process for the 2016-2017 school year on Feb. 15. College Credit Plus debuted at the start of the 2015-2016 school year, with more than 32,000 students enrolling to take advantage of the opportunity to get a jump start on college and reduce their costs toward a college degree.
College Credit Plus provides students with the opportunity to take college classes offered by any Ohio public college or university, or from any participating private postsecondary institution, at their high school, on the college or university campus, or online. The program allows students to explore college interests sooner and to earn college credits toward a degree before graduating from high school. It is free to families when students take courses offered by Ohio public colleges and universities.
Beginning Feb. 15, public high school students may notify their principal of their interest to participate, and non-public and homeschool students may send their letter of intent to participate to the Ohio Department of Education. All students must declare their intent to participate by April 1, including students who participated in the first year of College Credit Plus.
Logan Elm won the 2016 Battle Over the Books Competition. This tournament was once again held at Ohio Christian University and was under the direction of Michelle Callahan of the Pickaway County Library. Every year Pickaway County schools, along with Logan Hocking and Hilliard Bradley, compete for bookworm bragging rights! Battling through a single elimination tournament Logan Elm Team 2 barely edged a tough Teays Valley team to claim victory for the Braves. Well done Logan Elm Braves! As always our students represented our school and themselves with pride and character.
Gerhard Maroscher spoke to history classes at Logan Elm High School about his and his family's experiences during and following World War II. The Maroschers fled the Russian Army, survived starvation, hid from recently released prisoners, and escaped Communist Germany. Gerhard recently published a book, "Why Can't Somebody Just Die Around Here?", that chronicles his family's journey from their Romanian homeland to America.

I would like to thank all of the classes that donated to the Giving Tree project. We spent hours yesterday wrapping presents and getting them ready to deliver to local nursing homes. The support from Logan Elm students and staff is always greatly appreciated.
