(Jim needs another back rub)

Jim graduated from seminary in 1972 and started his new profession in MO. He joined the Army 21 June 1977 and served as a chaplain. He served all over the world but it sounded like he spent a lot of time in Germany, including East Germany and he retired in 2005 after 29 years and then he came to Colorado. Jim was the chaplain that blessed the first five bodies off the USS Cole.

Jim was Pastor of Christ Lutheran Church until his near fatal injury, now he is an Associate Pastor and tends after one of the greatest sinners of all time, Doug Harder. Jim was a disaster response guru for his area and helped a lot with the mess in New Orleans, along with Doug. He still has no memory between Oct and Nov 2007.

Jim has one sister, along with two children and two grandchildren with his wife, Vicki whom he married 6 Aug. 1972. Parchen claimed credit for arresting Harder the first time, putting him on the road to Deaconship. Doug Harder brought Jim into the club.

Program:   The King (Orian) introduced his wife, Ellen Hunter. Ellen is here to tell us about Fort Logan Elementary.

In our newly remodeled, state of the art facility, the focus of this school year will remain firmly on literacy, writing, spelling, and mathematics. We supplement these programs with high quality science, social studies, physical education, library, technology, music and art programs. In addition we have had a successful enrichment program. This program incorporates student interests in a variety of areas to provide enrichment activities such as chess club, yearbook, newspaper, art exploration, environmentalism, student leadership, and intramural sports.

We have the finest technology I have ever encountered in an Elementary school. Each classroom is equipped with either a SMART board or a document camera in addition to several computers for student use. Additionally, we have one computer for every four students! We ensure that active learning is taking place each and every day by integrating the use of interactive technology, traditional instruction, student practice, and reinforcement at home.

We will continue to focus our work in the context of caring for the whole child. Our programs include English as a Second Language, Intervention services, Special Education, Positive Behavioral Supports and Gifted and Talented differentiation. Children can work at a level that is challenging to their individual needs yet continually pushes them towards excellence.

Luckily, our wonderful staff is dedicated to the vision of propelling Fort Logan to the top of our state in academic achievement. They have been working very hard during the summer to advance their own skills in teaching new and exciting methods to meet the needs of our students. These talented and committed individuals partner with parents to make sure that the needs of every child is met.

Best of all, we have a community of parents devoted to the well being of Fort Logan and its students. We recommend that each family volunteer 10 hours per year to the school in the form of PTO, volunteering in classrooms, helping with campus cleanup, attending parent connections, attending student teacher conferences, helping with Box Tops for education, or a variety of other opportunities.
