New School

New School SignWill we ever get a new school? Do we need one? Would it improve the quality of education for Logan Elm students? I was reading the Blue Skunk Blog when I saw this picture. It just made me sit and daydream about seeing a sign like this on S.R. 56.

As the Logan Elm Local School District searches for a new superintendent, the leading candidate, Mrs. Jan Broughton, current superintendent, Portsmouth City Schools, helped her current district achieve this. Logan Elm currently ranks 371 out of 612 districts by the Ohio School Facility Commission for matching state funds. Most of the schools up through the first 300 either already have new schools, or are in the process. We will soon be eligible.

Almost every district in our area has new buildings. You will see new buildings if you drive by Amanda, Southeastern, Adena, Huntington, Teays Valley, Canal Winchester, Logan Hocking, Unioto, Westfall, and many others.

Are our one hundred year old building good enough? Do we need air conditioning? Would it help if classrooms were bigger, so students would have more room? Would Laurelville Elementary students learn more in a new setting? Would more students succeed?

I think that some rooms are crowded and that they need to be bigger. I think that it would be nice to have a new building.

I think the only thing that our schools need is A.C. The old buildings is memory's for probably a lot of people. Like maybe our parents. Like my dad he went to school here in laurelville and to the junior high and the high school. I Also think that at the high school we need new baseball and softball fields. I know what its like to mow all the fields ( football field, softball fields, baseball fields). I know this because my dad does all the maintenance at the school and during the summer I help him So thats all I think we need new at all of our schools.

yes I think we need a new school because if we get over packed we could be in trouble. like if someone moved in where will they go to school? we wont have any room for them. so they will either move again or they will drive all the way to salt creek.

It would be nice to get some air conditioning around here in the summer! Man it could get so hot in here and global warming isn't helping! The least they could do is get students like a mini fan for themselves!

I don't think that we will get a new school with our budget. We don't need a lot of money to be smart I think that we are better off without a lot of money Logan Elm doesn't need money we are good as we are right now I think.

I don't think that we NEED a new school. Of course it would be nice to have new school. and It wold be lot better if we had a really nice one like on TV, but it's not like we are all suffering because our school is killing us. Our school is fine. Yeah it'd be nice to have air conditioning and bigger classrooms, but people... that would coast a little thing called Money. lots and lots and lots of money.

I thing we are OK with the schools we have now. I think we should change how the school hours are because some time kids just need more learning time. Or

I think our school is good enough now. Plus I don't think we need air conditioning, because we don't have air conditioning now and we still survive. If we do get air conditioning and the electric goes out or something people will be so mad. They aren't mad now, but they will be if we get it.

I think we should have air conditioner because more kids will probably try harder.I also think we should have new buildings that way if we have a tornado we will have a stronger building.

I don't think we need a new school quite yet because it is not like our school is turning in to ruins or it was tore down by a natural disaster.I think that we should not build a new school because the kids in Africa need a new probably more than we do!!!

I think that the schools we have are good but a new school would be nice. O and some air conditioning, for sure. Although, we just have to except what we have and be good with it, a lot of kids don't even have school so I'm good.

I think that we don't need a new school but some air conditioning would be nice."We don't need a lot of money to get smart" I agree with Caleb.Sure we have a crappy rating but were good as is."Global warming isn't helping" very funny Kari
