Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year

This year we are building collaboration and cultural awareness on the Northside! 


We are excited about the new school year for our Logan students and families. Here at Logan Middle, we believe in strong partnerships between school, families, and the community. We are thrilled to continue to create opportunities for collaboration while bringing cultural awareness and community involvement to Logan Middle. Our “Global Village” will give students a chance to learn about their local and larger communities and explore ways in which they can contribute to these communities. The staff at Logan Middle is excited to help students succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. 

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or communications you may have. We are here to help and to work together to ensure student success!

With kind regards,

Award winning author and cartoonist Gene Luen Yang spoke to students at Logan Middle this morning about his path to publishing comics, reading outside your comfort zone to build empathy, and the perseverance needed to pursue a goal.  Students were excellent audience members!  If any families would like to see Gene Luen Yang, he will be at the public library tonight(4/9) at 6 pm!  Thank you to the School District, La Crosse Public Education Foundation, and the La Crosse Public Library for their support and sponsorship of this visit!


Hello Logan Middle Families,


I hope everyone is doing well! I want to express my gratitude to all students who were involved or showed support during our celebration this afternoon. I observed smiling faces and helpful hands as students tried their hardest and encouraged each other while they played basketball. This is an example of how our students are often willing to support and inspire others to try their hardest! We are truly impressed with our students. We believe in each other and will help guide our families so that our students can be successful in their life journey!


Thank you,


Amber Erickson

Hello Families,


We wanted to send a small positive reminder that will showcase some of the amazing things our students do to help others! We have extraordinary students who think of others before themselves and continually go out of their way to help one another! Here are a few examples!


* One 8th grade student asked the duty supervisor if she could see the nurse. As the supervisor walked back out the door after letting her in, another 8th-grade student stopped the supervisor, asked if she was going to be okay and proceeded to let her know that he would help in any way he could.


*One of our students was seen taking trays from students, dumping the contents in the garbage, and stacking their trays without being told.


*Several of our students had found out that it was one of our teachers birthdays, we always announce birthdays on the intercom. After hearing this information, they asked our FACE teacher if they could make her a cake. Of course, the teacher was excited they asked, and allowed them to make her a scrumptious cake!


*Several 6th-grade students were walking the halls between classes and noticed one of their classmates was crying. They stopped, asked if he was okay, and after talking with him, proceeded to walk him to the nurse and get him a drink of water.


*A 7th-grade student was seen struggling by his locker. Two of his classmates came up beside him and asked if they could help. He was immediately relieved to see that his classmates were there for him and would help him get his jammed locker open.

These are just a few of the random acts of kindness our students continually give without prompt. Our students are simply amazing and we are very proud of them! Parents, you should feel very proud of yourselves and your son or daughter! Thank you for everything you do!

Dear Logan Middle Families,


As a new semester begins and February approaches, the words, compassion, kindness, and commitment come to mind.


Last week, as I watched a group of students provide support for a student who needs crutches to get around, these three words were remarkably prevalent. As students gathered nearby before the start of the school day, I heard, “Can I hold your bag for you? The other two friends created a schedule to help carry his lunch tray and books. I could not help but feel proud, proud to call these students Panthers and proud to see tremendous compassion, commitment, and kindness. For these students, and many others, gestures such as these come naturally and out of friendship.


For many of our students, a new semester can be difficult or scary. The thought of the unknown crosses their minds and worry becomes an automatic response. We appreciate the continued support our families unconditionally give. Nevertheless, compassion, kindness, and commitment surface throughout our halls and drive our students’ education. Thank you for your continued guidance!

With much appreciation,

Dear Families!

As we finish our last week before break, I have enjoyed reflecting on the positive interactions I have witnessed among students. We are very proud of our students, their families, and the progress we have seen. Just the other day, I saw one of our 6th graders reach out and hold the door for all of our 8th graders. As the door holder waited for the last to pass, our 8th-grade student smiled, put his hand on his shoulder, and said, ” We thank you and are proud of you, keep up the great work.” As you can imagine, my heart melted as I watched this warm exchange among different grade levels. This is just one example of the Northside students looking out for one another that we are able to witness each and every day!

We are here to support and guide our students. We could not make these impacts without our committed staff and caring families. I want to thank you for getting your kids to school, fostering positive relationships, and holding on through what can be the most difficult years of a teenager’s life. We appreciate your continued communication and support of Logan Middle.

I can say wholeheartedly that I am grateful to be here and always available for you as we continue through this journey together!


During the week of November 12th, we will be sending your child’s quarterly academic/behavioral grades. You can also access these grades on our family access website.


Our next family night will take place on January 8th from 5:00-6:30.  We will have a chili cookoff! Staff members will be providing their “secret family” recipes while families are the judges. All students and their families will be able to rank their favorites! Also, all families will be able to enjoy a big bowl of chili, sides, and desserts! We look forward to seeing you there!


Last week, we had our first school dance. Our students were able to showcase their very own dance moves under the disco lights! We will have two additional dances throughout the year!
