A Message from Mrs. Gochenour, 7-12 Principal

Inserted Image


I hope each of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. It’s hard to believe that we are almost halfway through the school year. It is wonderful to be back to “normal” with our activities in the school. The students really appreciate having an audience for each of their events.

Our Winter Concert Series will be back to full capacity. The 9-12 Winter concert is December 9 at 7:00 and our 5-8 Winter Concert is December 16 at 7:00. We are excited to watch and hear our students perform for the community again!

For many years we have partnered with Iowa Western Community College and other Harrison County high schools to increase our students’ academic options. Last fall Logan-Magnolia, Missouri Valley, and West Harrison began conversations to build a Regional Career Academy here in Harrison County. This summer, that partnership expanded to include Iowa Western Community College and a fourth Harrison County school, Tri-Center.

Recently, Iowa Western purchased the former Crossroads building to serve as our Regional Career Academy Center. Starting in August 2022, Harrison County students will have opportunities to earn college credit and certificates in skills-based, hands-on learning in the areas of Welding, Electrical, Construction, and Agriculture in our new Regional Career Academy Center. Program completion will help students obtain life-long skills, enter the workforce with high paying jobs immediately following High School Graduation, obtain apprenticeships, and/or continue towards completion of an Associate’s degree.

We are so excited to be partnering with other Harrison County Schools and Iowa Western. Logan-Magnolia Community Schools firmly believes that there are many opportunities and pathways for students after High School. We want to continue to find ways to provide these pathways for students to be successful, regardless of the direction they choose. This Regional Career Academy is an amazing opportunity for our students, and we couldn't be more excited to help open this door!

December 22 is the last day of the 1st semester.  Semester tests will be administered on Monday, December 20 and Tuesday, December 21. Wednesday, December 22 will be used as a make-up day. Students who have missing work or who have missed the semester test, will come on this day to get caught up. Juniors and Seniors will have open campus and are allowed to come and go with their testing. Freshmen and Sophomores may arrive at their first test and leave after their last test of the day but may not leave in between. So if their first test starts at 10:00, they do not have to arrive until 10:00, and they may leave at the end of their final test for the day.  The semester test schedule will run as follows:


December 20
