British Romantic Comedy a Delightful Diversion
Identities were swapped, brandy was consumed, and the Constable was struck by lightning. Or was he? Jeeves in the Springtime, a delightful comedy set in 1930s England, was this year’s varsity drama production. Mr. Tom Garfield, superintendent of Logos, wrote and directed the play. “He is really fun (as a director),” said Tom Feuerstein. “He can tell you what you are doing wrong and how to fix it, so he is really effective.” Mr. Garfield based the script on P.G. Wodehouse’s classic book, The Mating Season, but adapted it for the stage with the guidance and editing advice of the Wodehouse estate. Mr. Garfield faithfully retained the beloved style of Wodehouse while creating a unique work fitted perfectly to the context of a high school play.

Yet many young people are leaving the Church. Secular education, mass media, and gaming are taking a toll. Citing James 1:5-6, Kerby said, “We need to ask God for wisdom.”
Elementary: Principal’s Note
Life in the elementary is skipping along at a healthy rate. Please keep an eye on the dates on the back page to stay abreast of it all.

Bigger and Better Every Year

The school upgraded its information system, added more classrooms, said goodbye to some wonderful staff members, and welcomed many new faces. Renweb, the new online information system, allows parents to see their children’s grades and behavioral records, streamlining communication between parents and teachers.
A Record Number of International Students Attend Logos
A record number of international students attend Logos this year: 20 secondary and three elementary students. Korean is heard in the hallways and classrooms and around the lunch tables. Would you like to learn about another country? Ask the Koreans in the third row or the Nigerians in the second. So why Logos? How did they find us? About a generation ago, Mr. Jim Wilson, whose son Mr. Douglas Wilson helped found Logos, started a Bible study for Korean students at the University of Idaho. Many of his students became Christians through his witness, then moved back to South Korea (taking a high opinion of Logos home with them)…
