LOGAN, W.Va. — More than 450 parents and family members came together to celebrate students during the sixth annual Logan County Universal Pre-K Showcase held in December. The showcase, held at the Chief Logan Lodge and Convention Center, featured workshops and holiday performances by nearly 250 students from all of the county’s Pre-Kindergarten and Head Start students.
Prior to classroom performances, parents and students were able to participate in hands-on lessons taught by representatives from the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh. During “Bubble Science” students learned about different components of bubbles, and practiced making bubbles and foam in a variety of ways.
In “Ready, Set, Roll,” students learned about how different materials will affect how an object moves. They built ramps to test which objects would roll and which would slide.
Parents also had the opportunity to attend a “Positive Parents” workshop given by school psychologist Lottie Pack.
At the end of the sessions, each classroom performed a showcase of holiday songs, and the event concluded with the entire Logan County Class of 2029 performing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
