East Allegheny's Logan Middle School is looking ahead to a pair of science competitions.

On Monday the district's board of directors approved Logan science teacher Eileen Joll's request to take up to 13 interested students to participate in the Southwestern Pennsylvania Middle School Science Bowl on March 1 at Community College of Allegheny County South Campus in West Mifflin.On March 29 there will be 22 Logan students competing in Carnegie Science Center's Pennsylvania Regional Science and Engineering Fair competition at Heinz Field.

They were winners in last week's annual science fair at the middle school. District officials expect to honor those students at a board meeting.

Superintendent Roger D'Emidio honored high school student William Marshall on Monday. He attended the Remaking Cities Congress sponsored by the Pittsburgh Youth Media. He was East Allegheny Business Association student of the month in January and has a 3.67 grade point average.

The board voted to allow guidance secretary Linda Gorski to purchase her service time through the Pennsylvania School Employees' Retirement System for the year she was on special sick leave. The district will pay an employer share of $1,973.24.
