Consolidating 8th grade high school
District patrons again overwhelming approved a .2 million school bond issue to build a new elementary school (Twin Lakes Elementary) and make improvements to Garwood and Spirit Lake Elementary Schools and Lakeland Senior High School.
Beginning in the fall of 2007 Lakeland Junior High School serves students in grades 7-8 and is located at 15601 N.
LCHS Athletic Director Greg Howard says that Logan is the only school district in the Fourth Region with the top middle school players not all on the same team.
“We may have been the only district doing that in the Second and Third regions, too,” he adds, The new middle school teams will be chosen during fall tryouts.
“We haven’t had cheerleaders for the middle school teams, so this will be an addition,” Howard says.
Ever since Logan County High School opened in 1982 by consolidating the five existing high schools, the middle schools have fielded teams which not only competed with each other but with other area schools.
Those teams then played a tournament in late January.
Eighth grade is the eighth year of formal education in the US, and is typically the last year of middle school. In Brazil, the equivalent is nono ano (ninth grade), and in Scotland the equivalent is S2.
Usually, students are 13–14 years old in this stage of education.
