New Event!

On August 9, 2022, the Logan Elm Athletic Department hosted "Meet the Teams Night" at Logan Elm Stadium. With an estimated attendance of over 1,000 athletes, band members, coaches, staff, administrators and community members, the event was a huge success! Students from across the district were able to take part in a Wiffle Ball Home Run Derby, 3-Point competition and a Punt, Pass and Kick competition, while others enjoyed cornhole and took a shot at dunking alumni, Jason Sailor and Isaac Ward, in the dunk tank. City Barbeque donated and served over 500 meals and the Athletic Boosters and Board of Education provided hamburgers and hot dogs. 

In an opening speech to all of the Logan Elm Staff Members, Mr. Tim Williams explained that the district administrators were asked to narrow down a list to one word that they wanted to be a focus for the district this year. That word was "FAMILY." As we reflected on "Meet the Teams night" and the success of the event for our students, this same focus was easy to see.

We are Braves! We are a strong Community. We are a family. 

We hope to see you at our Fall Athletic Events.

The event would not have been possible without the support and help of many individuals. The Logan Elm Athletic Department would like to thank City Barbeque for donating food for this event. We would also like to thank Tyler Pritchard for dontaing tables, chairs and a tent. A big thank you goes to Doug Stiverson, Jeff Holbert, Terry Holbert, Chad Savage, Damon Baker, Jeremy Neff and Ted Dille for running the activites;  Amy Colburn, Becky Davis, Katie Piacentini, Terry Borland, Rachel Largent and Michelle Holbert for serving food; and, Mike Schultz, Dan Bise and Scott Pontious for cooking the hamburgers and hot dogs. The Circleville Sheriff's department provided the dunk tank and 2021 grads-Jason Sailor and Issac Ward were fantastic volunteers.  

City Barbeque served over 500 plates!

New walls and building updates!

The team at Summit Construction has been hard at work over the summer on the PK-12 building.

Two-story library in the 6-12 wing of the building.

Bold colors brighten the hallways inside the building.

Large windows along the elementary library wall allow lots of natural light.

Our project is a partnership with Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (O.F.C.C.) in which LE pays 74% and OFCC pays 26%. The co-funded budget is $56.2M.

LE and donors added $2.6M for LFIs: extended learning areas, larger gyms, auditorium seating, brick veneer, windows & clearstory, canopies over entrances, natural gas, turn lanes, terrazzo, etc.

We’re utilizing the Construction Manager at Risk (CM-R) delivery model. Summit Construction is the single contract holder with overall responsibility for completion of the project. There is a pre-negotiated Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) shielding LE from inflation. The project is and will remain on schedule and on budget.

To date, we’ve paid out $25.4 million or 43% of the total budget.
