"I was actually pretty nervous to play Powder Puff for lots of reasons. Our team had only two practices while the Crimson Team practiced almost everyday. They cheered louder in the parade and were pretty sure of themselves which psyched us out. In the end we played the best, the final score being 28-14. Winning was such a rush! I was so glad that we won and could remember this for the rest of our lives. Plus, it was exciting because there were so many people in the stands cheering us all on. I loved every minute of it, I loved my team, I loved my coaches, I loved how hard we all worked, and especially how loud we cheered on each other. Even if we hadn’t won I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I love the senior class I’m graduating with. This was one of my favorite high school memories by far." -Trinity McCrae
"I had been looking forward to powderpuff since my freshman year and I am more than happy with the experience I ended up with. My teammates were incredible and so were our coaches. Even though we didn't win, I felt like I gave it my all and had fun. Our team fought hard and I'm proud to have been on the Crimson team. The cheers from the crowd, looking back and waving at my parents, and screaming in happiness when we scored made the whole thing worth it. My freshman dreams came true in a great way and I definitely encourage all senior girls to participate in that awesome Logan High tradition." - Emery Kent
There are a lot of traditions and activities that happen here at Logan High. Homecoming week is no exception. Fun activities and traditions like painting the street, the powderpuff game and the dance are just a few examples. A lot of work goes on for these activities to be a reality. Most students don’t know about what goes on for the activities to happen. Alex Rasmussen is the Student Body Officer for Activities and Clubs. Curious, I asked him a few questions about what goes on behind the scenes.
Before the activities the Student Government committee has to figure out many things for our activities to be a reality. Putting their minds and thoughts together they must figure out what they want to do, what they need in order for it to happen, who can help, how much time they have and how much money is in their budget. An example of this is the parade happening this year. There are 7 SBOs along with teachers, janitors, administration and advisors. They have to plan all of the little tiny things or everything could go wrong. Students can help by telling their friends about the activities and going to them helps the best. They can go to the Student Government class and ask but what helps the most is being the best Grizzly you can be.
This year the Student Government want to accomplish their goal of having students enjoy their highschool years. Their hope is that students will want to go to the activities and want their friends to come as well. Encouraging student participation is the best way they have decided to get people to help out.
Now that you know of what goes on behind the scenes of activities I hope you appreciate them and go to more of the activities. Many people have come together to make this school the best that it can be. Don’t forget to thank the SBOs and all of the other people that help them to make our activities happen.
Last week, Logan High School students had the opportunity to explore and sign up for clubs during Rush Week. Booths were set up during both lunches, and club representatives were present to encourage kids to get involved at Logan High.
“The purpose of Rush Week is to be able to bring Logan High together, involving them in clubs, and getting different things together so that people can find what they like to do and enjoy school,” Activities VP, Alex Rasmussen, said. “There are a bunch of different clubs. There’s a new club, Food Nation, that’s really cool, clubs that help you learn different things like Tech Crew Club and things that try to change the world like Leaf Club and FBLA, and then there’s just fun clubs that you can join like K-Pop.”
Booths were easily accessible, allowing students to move from table to table to learn about the variety of clubs that LHS has to offer.
School clubs provide students opportunities to form new interests or explore their passions by finding groups that best suit them. They also allow students to gain something outside of their assigned schoolwork. Guitar Club frequently plays at school assemblies, Leaf Club helped pass a climate resolution for the state of Utah earlier in the year, and GSA involves students from all walks of life to create a sense of unity. LHS has enough options for students to find the club that best suits them or even become involved in multiple clubs.
Clubs accepted sign ups throughout the week but are flexible about letting students join after Rush Week is over. A list of club advisors will be available for students who are interested, and advisors will provide information for how to join. Students can also speak to Alex Rasmussen for more information on specific clubs.
There are many traditions that students here at Logan High like to celebrate. One tradition is we do a pep rally before home football games to get everyone fired up before the game and come with their school spirit. Everyone goes and supports their football team and sings songs for their school spirit.
There is also Powder Puff for the girls who would want to try out football for one time. It happens once a year and all the senior girls sign up to play. It’s the one time where gender roles are switched because the guys dress up as cheerleaders, which is really funny to watch. The school preps all week for this event because it’s a one time event for the school year and most of the school goes to watch.
Another is homecoming. Homecoming is a tradition that happens at the beginning of school year where students dress up in their nicest formal outfits. Students get their hair done, the girls get their nails done and put on makeup to look their best to go to this first dance of the school year.
