Hello Logan Alumni,
Normally, around this time of year, we send you an email inviting you to attend the Logan Alumni Winter Reunion. We email, and we text, and we log back onto Facebook(/Meta?) for the first time since last year to find you and to encourage you to get back together with your Logan alumni buds for a hello. For three years, we did it in person, last year, for obvious reasons, we did it virtually. This year, we regret to inform you, it ain’t gonna happen. 
Some of the attendees of last year’s virtual alumni reunion!
Caution and care prevent us from gathering in person, and Zoom fatigue prevents us from insisting that we gather on the internet. Instead, we’re going to look forward to sunnier, warmer, hopefully less pandemic-afflicted times, and tentatively plan for a 2022 Logan Alumni Spring or Summer Reunion. Keep an ear out for more on that! 
In the meantime, here’s what we’ve got:
  • Logan Alumni Updates
  • Colorado Gives Day Match
  • Logan School Updates
We miss you, we’re grateful for you, and we’re bummed that we won’t see you this winter. Stay warm and tell the people you love that you love them early and often.

Cheers till next time,
Paula Davis, Class of 2002

Colorado Gives Day - Matching Opportunity!
Colorado Gives Day is the annual opportunity we all have to give back to the place that helped us become who we are. To support Logan's teachers, funds for financial aid, and so much more, consider making a plan to donate to Logan by or on Tuesday, Dec. 7. 
This year, an alumni family has offered to match all alumni Colorado Gives Day donations up to $1,000! To double the power of your donation now is a great chance to give back to Logan, no matter the size of your donation.
