This is ______________ with Logan’s Generation Alive Leadership Team.   Generation Alive is a wonderful program with the mission to empower youth to serve their community through action and service.   Through your generosity in donating money, Logan students will be able to provide thousands of meals for people in need. Every penny raised goes right to our project. Just one quarter will provide a nutritious meal for 6 people!

Every meal purchased will be prepared and packed by the students here at Logan. The more we earn, the more meals we will be able to package and provide for members of our community. Our deadline for donation is Tuesday, March 12th so please, send in your donations before it’s too late. You can send donations with your child, or drop them off at our school office.

Native Families Filling Out Form


Hello.  This is Mr. Perdue, Logan’s principal, reaching out with a special message for families of our Native students.  Your child is bringing home a form that requests that you fill out some information regarding tribal affiliation and other information for the Department of Education, office of Indian Education.  These forms are directly tied to the amount of money the district receives from the federal government to assist native students. 


As a proud member of the Chickasaw Tribe myself, and having a father who grew up on a reservation in Oklahoma, I believe we should work together to access as many funds as our kids are entitled to.  Please consider filling out the form and returning it to school tomorrow.


Thank you and take care.    



Logan:  No school tomorrow (Staff Professional Development Day) or Monday (Weather Make Up Day) 




Point out strengths when your child struggles -



Logan: Help your child learn about Martin Luther King, Jr. -


Tuesday: Logan Family Meal 5-6PM and Game Night in Library 6-7PM.




Missing Phone

Good evening.  This is Mr. Perdue and you are receiving this call because your student is in Mrs. Johnson’s fourth grade class or your student visited her classroom between 2:30 and 3:00 yesterday, January 16.  During that time span, a student’s cell phone came up missing.  The missing phone is an Axel brand phone that is black in color and has a Galaxy Fortnight Screensaver.  If you have seen it, please contact the school at 354-3434.  And if it is at your home, please do not send it to school with your child.  Call us instead.  Thanks for any help you can provide.

Good evening Logan families. This is Mr. Perdue, and I am excited to be the first to welcome you back to school for 2019! It is going to be a great year of learning and fun!


School gets rolling again tomorrow morning, and we can expect to have some pretty cold weather over the next two months. Please make sure your children are dressed for the cold, as getting outside is great for the body and mind! Hats, gloves and coats will be a must for the next few months. If your student is in need of any warm weather clothing, please reach out to Tami Cunningham, Logan’s community health worker to see what we have in stock.


The Logan Family Meal will be back on schedule beginning Tuesday. Make your family’s New Years Resolution to enjoy a healthy and free meal every Tuesday right here at Logan between 5 and 6 PM.

eTips and Website for Notifications


Hello Logan Lions!  This is Mr. Perdue. 


If you have already had the chance to read this last Thursday’s edition of The Lion’s Roar, you are aware that beginning this week, Logan will be sending out helpful notifications from The Parent Institute with tips for families on supporting your young learners.  In the Lion’s Roar, I mentioned that the tips would be sent out in text messages each weekday evening at 7:00.  In conversations with Logan’s Instructional Learning Team, it was decided that messages will only go out on Mondays and Wednesdays, so as not to send too many notifications out.  Staff members are parents too, so we are excited to also be receiving these quick tips a few days each week.  So look for your first one tomorrow night! 



And while I have you, I wanted to make you aware that we have begun adding the text of these automated messages to our website.  This will provide you with a place to go in case you miss a message or want to review what it said at a later time.  Just visit our SAY SOMETHING ABOUT HOW THEY CAN GO TO OUR WEBSITE UNDER “Highlights” TO READ THIS. homepage and go to the “Highlights” section and look for the BrightArrow Automated Phone Messages link. 


That’s all I have for you this evening.  Be well and make it a great night!   





Flu Shot Clinic


Greetings Logan Families. This is Mr. Perdue with two items for you tonight. 


Logan had an earlier Flu Shot clinic postponed due to a shortage of the vaccine.  That clinic was rescheduled for tomorrow Tuesday, November 13, between 12 and 3:30 PM. 


Regardless of your insurance, there is no cost to you.  However, we are required to bill your insurance company for the vaccine.  But again, this is completely free for Logan families. 


There are two ways to sign your child up.  You can drop by the Logan office to sign the consent form or go online right now to to register your student. 

That’s to have your student receive a flu shot and help ward off that nasty bug! 


And while I have you, don’t forget The Logan Family meal, happening every Tuesday between 5-6PM.  The food has been great, so make us a regular part of your every Tuesday dinner plans! 


Skate Night/Family Meal/Daylight Savings


Greetings Logan families.  This is Mr. Perdue with couple quick items for you this evening.  But first, I wanted to start with an apology.  I accidentally set the BrightArrow text that went out to all of you about our weekly Tuesday Logan Family Meal at 6:15 AM last Monday morning, when I meant to send it in the PM.  I hope that did not wake any of you up.


So on to the reason for my call.  I wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow night is Logan’s first Skate Night at Pattison’s Roller Rink. 


Plan to join other Logan Lions and skate the night away from 6:00-8:00.  Logan has the entire skating rink to ourselves, so it is always loads of fun. 


Admission is $5.25 for regular skates or if you bring your own, and $7.25 if you want rollerblades or speedskates. See you there!


And with today being the end of daylight savings time, I hope everyone remembered to turn back your clocks and to have enjoyed the extra hour today.


Be well and I look forward to seeing each of you very soon!

State Science Assessment Results (6th Grade Only)

Good evening Logan 6th grade families. Your 6th grader took the Washington Comprehensive Assessment for Science last spring as a 5th grader.  The results of that standardized assessment were sent home this afternoon with your student. 


If your child took the assessment at a different school, his/her assessment results may not have arrived yet.   


Please take some time to review the results with your child and follow up with his or her teacher if you have additional questions. 


Take care and have a nice rest of your evening.



Logan Family Meal (TEXT ONLY)

Logan Elementary:.  Don’t forget tomorrow’s Logan Family Meal taking place from 5 to 6 PM.  Leave the cooking to us every Tuesday! 



Logan Family Meal and No School Friday

Greetings again Logan families.  I wanted to do one last minute reminder to invite you to come have dinner with us today.  We have our first family meal between 5 and 6 tonight.  We will continue each Tuesday going forward.  So come and join us!  And hey, its’ free!  Come on over after 5:00.  See you here!


And while I have you, please remember that there is no school this Friday for students, as it is a staff learning day. 




Logan Family Meal

Hello Logan Lions!  This is Mr. Perdue and I am so excited to be reaching out to you this evening.  I am hopeful that you have already seen the notices in the last few editions of the Lion’s Roar about a family meal that will be served every Tuesday between 5 and 6 PM, right here at Logan.  We are partnering with Gonzaga University’s Campus Kitchen project to provide the meal each week. 


Why not leave the cooking to someone else every Tuesday night!  And the added bonus is that it is free!  So make us a regular part of your dinner plans every Tuesday between 5 and 6 pm.  It starts tomorrow and I hope to see you here!




Picture Day, McTeacher Night


Good day Logan Families, this is Mr. Perdue.  I am calling this evening to remind you about McTeacher Night tomorrow. 


Beginning at 4:30 on Tuesday and continuing until 6:30, plan to join Logan staff members at McTeacher Night at the McDonald’s on Market Street.  Teachers and Logan staff will be helping take orders and serve meals between 4:30 and 6:30 with a portion of the proceeds from the night coming back to the school.  Even Ronald McDonald usually makes an appearance.  I’ll see you there! 



Open House and Resource Fair

Good Wednesday Logan families, this is Mr. Perdue.  I am calling to remind all Lion Families that tomorrow night is Logan’s Annual Resource Fair and Open House!  Come learn about the exciting things in store for your children this year. 


Beginning at 5:00 and continuing until 7:00, the gym will be full of information tables about different special programs and offerings at Logan during the day, along with extra-curricular and community resources to enrich the lives of your family. 


At 5:30 and continuing until 6:30, you are invited to visit classrooms with your children, say hello to teachers and see where your children spend their days.  Come see what it is like to be a student here at Logan!  This is a true open house style, so you do not need to visit the classroom right at 5:30.  Visit any time between 5:30 and 6:30 and spend the rest of the time in the resource fair!       


Thank you in advance for taking an active role in your child’s education by joining us at Open House.  For when we partner together, our kids can do anything.  


Make it a great rest of your day and see you tomorrow night!



Community Eligibility Provision

Good evening.  This is Mr. Perdue.  You are receiving this call tonight to bring your attention to a letter that was brought home by your student either yesterday or today.  The letter is attached to an important form that we need filled out and returned to school tomorrow. 


Receiving these important forms back at school, helps us maintain funding for counselors, instructional coaches, intervention teachers and more.  Please ask your student for the letter and help get it back to school tomorrow.


Thank you and make it a great rest of the evening!    



Logan Neighborhood Block Party

Good evening Logan Lions, this is Mr. Perdue. 


I am reaching out tonight to invite you to attend the Logan Neighborhood Block Party tomorrow between 3:30 and 7:00.  The block party is a partnership between Gonzaga University and other neighborhood partners including your child’s elementary school. 


The event takes place on the Fourth Memorial Church property on 200 North Standard.  A Free BBQ, event booths, bands and more will be part of the event.  Even Gonzaga student athletes are known to be on hand to shoot hoops with kids and neighbors. 


I’ll see you there! 


And while I have you, please remember that this Friday is our first early release for Peer Professional Learning.  Students are dismissed at 1:45PM.  If your child is not a busser, please make a plan for a 1:45 pick up. 


Make it a great rest of the night! 




Popsicles follow-up, first day of school

Hello Logan Lions, this is Mr. Perdue.  I enjoyed seeing so many of you today at our Popsicles with the Principals event.  What a beautiful day to enjoy a popsicle!   


You know, I just can’t believe it but the first day of school is finally here!  Grades 1 through 6 begin tomorrow morning at 8:30.  We line up inside now, so when you come, staff members will be on hand to show your student which way to go. 


We will be serving breakfast beginning at 8:00 in the cafeteria for those of you who would like to join us.  Others not having breakfast are welcome to come to school after 8:15. 


If you have a kindergartener at home, please remember that your student starts next Wednesday and you have a WaKids conference set during the first three days of school to meet one-on-one with your child’s teacher.  If you are unsure when your time is, please contact our office in the morning at 354-3434. 


With that, make it a great rest of the evening, the choice is yours!   



Popsicles with the Principals

Good evening Logan families, this is Ms. Capko, Logan’s new principal assistant. I am calling you tonight to remind you of the Popsicles with the Principals event that is scheduled here at Logan on the playground tomorrow from 1 until 2 o’clock.  Come and enjoy a frozen treat, visit with Mr. Perdue, Ms. Garrard and catch up with friends.  You might even get a glimpse of a teacher or two, as some have been known to drop by while taking a break from working feverishly to get ready for the first day of school. 


If you cannot remember the time of the event when tomorrow comes around, this information is included on the class placement postcard that you recently received. 


I look forward to meeting you tomorrow and in seeing all of our students on Thursday, which is the first day of school for students in grades 1-6.  


Make it a great rest of your evening.
