Dinner Auction Results…
The Logos Dinner Auction was a huge success! Thank you to each and every person who had a part in bringing the evening together and to all those who purchased tickets, bid on auction items, donated auction items, contributed to the Fund in Need, and made cash donations. After expenses, the event netted approximately $33,000. We are incredibly blessed to be a part of such a generous and supportive community!

IOWA Standardized Testing Coming April 8-12
Logos will participate in standardized testing in math, computation, reading, written expression, history, science, and other specific areas the week of April 8-12. Students in grades 2-8 will be testing each morning between the start of school and morning recess. Please make sure that your child is in attendance and on time to school. Giving them a good breakfast and ensuring they get a good night’s rest will be beneficial.
We are excited to announce that Spring Pictures will be provided by Fallon’s very own Howieloo Photography! Spring pictures will be taken on Tuesday, April 30th . There will be a delightful variety of poses and packages to choose from. Watch for a flyer with further information coming home today. Orders will be able to be placed on line (www.Howieloo.com & click on school tab) or through a paper order form, which will come home on April 12th.
