Benjamin Logan Middle School Mini Relay for Life was held on Monday May 18th.  This wonderful event in cooperation with the high school and elementary has raised over $39,000 dollars for Relay for Life and as a district we are hoping to surpass the $40,000 mark before the year is said and done.  Relay for Life is part of the American Cancer Society’s program to raise money for their many services including cancer research, Hope Lodge (housing for patients), Road to Recovery (transportation for patients receiving treatment), Look Good…Feel Better (a wig program for patients being treated with chemotherapy), and their Reach to Recovery program (matches breast cancer survivors with recently diagnosed patients to help them understand what they will experience and assist with the recovery process).  

The students spent the day walking the track, playing carnival style games, bidding on silent auction items, competing in dance contests, getting their faces painted, buying delicious treats from the concession stand, and overall enjoying their time outside raising money for this great cause.  The event was culminated by a very touching and emotional Survivor Lap, where over two dozen people including survivors and their families participated.  The students gave our Survivor Lap participants a standing ovation to show their support for the continued battle to cure cancer in America.  Hats off to the efforts of all involved in making this day possible for our students and school.  Our Relay for Life committee put in countless hours to make this event the success it was and I want to give a huge thank you to all of them.  Another special thank you to all of our donors without you none of this would have been possible.  I feel blessed to be a part of a district and community that supports such great causes.

Evening with the Arts is a Big HIT!!!


Benjamin Logan Middle School held its first annual “Evening with the Arts” event on Thursday May 7th.  The evening featured a multitude of talented students in all of the unified arts areas performing in front of a packed house.  All four 5th through 8th grade choirs performed and did excellent jobs entertaining the crowd.  An art show featuring all of our art students was held in the middle school media center along with an interactive technology exhibit put on by our technology application students.  Our jazz band performed along with several solo and ensemble groups and the evening was hosted by our Global Gateways students.  The night also included a taco dinner with ice cream bar including all the fixings hosted by the HS show choir.  Baskets created by PTS and other groups were raffled off as well as an auction where all money raised went directly to benefit our unified arts programs.  The turnout for this event was incredible, once again showing the community support for our students and our unified arts programs.  Our unified arts teacher deserve a huge thank you as they put in a ton of time and effort to make this evening happen.  I am very proud of all of our students and the wonderful work they have done this year in our unified arts programs.  It makes me smile to think about all of the talented young people we get the opportunity to work with on a daily basis.  I look forward to seeing how this event will change and improve in the future as we continue to feature our talented students in “Evening with the Arts”

Thank you – Jeff McPheron
