Today, our 8th graders are graduating LOGAN Hope School! Many of them who have attended the school since they were in kindergarten, are going off to some of the best schools in the city including Central High School and Cristo Rey.
We are so proud of their accomplishments and looking forward to celebrating them tonight. In honor of that, here are some of the graduation portraits taken of this year's graduates.
On May 18th, the legendary former Flyers player, Bob "The Hound" Kelly visited LOGAN Hope School to speak about how education and sports tie in together. Since a large number of our students are interested in or participate in school sports, we thought that hearing from someone who has been a successful hockey player explain how receiving a good education helped him in his future.
He shared his experiences as a Flyers player, but also as a student, emphasizing the importance of maintaining good grades, being a team player, and not giving up. It's these qualities we also hope to instill in our students through some of our core values such as grit.
We are so thankful for the Philadelphia Flyers coming to share their wisdom and experience with our students!
On Friday April 28, 2017 LOGAN Hope School had our 6th annual Race for Education. This event encourages students to become active while raising much needed money to help fund LOGAN Hope’s educational programs. In support of LOGAN Hope School, our students, teachers and guests ran a total of 1956 laps for a total of 489 miles! Please support our students effort and help us to reach our goal of $25,000 by donating to the Race for Education.
With over 130 people in attendance and no clouds in sight, we ran, fellowshipped, and walked towards our fundraising goal of the year with friends, family, and supporters of LOGAN Hope.
Our race was followed by a delicious lunch comprised of sandwiches, pizza, water ice, and candy. It was a wonderful time for everyone to reflect on the amount of laps we ran, fellowship with each other and receive nourishment after all of the racing! Not too long after, our annual Gaga Tournament commenced, where students are on teams with people both in and outside of their grade to see who would be the last one standing. The winning team receives their name of the trophy, their own medal, and a lunch from Chick-fil-A.
