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.

Question the (Unbeliever’s) Question

“Your generation is under attack.” Carl Kerby, founder of Reasons for Hope, spoke about “Becoming Bold” to Logos secondary students on January 7. “We are the most Christian nation on the planet,” Kerby said. 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.
The elementary teachers are currently working on their annual scholarship projects where they do research and reading to deepen their understanding and love of the material they teach. Many elementary teachers are learning to use Renweb, our new online database, as their scholarship project.

Bigger and Better Every Year

Each year brings many exciting changes; and this year was no exception at Logos. 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)…

Farewell, Class of 2013

As the Class of 2013 counted down the days to June 1, they took the time to answer a few questions. Besides the obvious query of ‘what are your plans for next year?’ they let us into the know on one goal they’d like to have accomplished in the next 10 years, and left some brief advice behind for the Freshies. Whether or not you’re well acquainted with the class, you might learn a little more than you wanted to. Enjoy!

Many Firsts for Track Team

Newspaper headlines ran thick with Logos Track and Field news this season — a memorable year of firsts. It was the first time Logos won the White Pine League Championship, the first time the team has ever gone to State, the first time the team boasted more guys than girls, the first time Coach John Carnahan drove a bus to the Seattle King’s meet, the first time we had a team member, Philip King, sing the National Anthem at a meet, and the list goes on and on!

Annual Eighth Grade History Trip

A major event in the Logos junior high experience is the three-day eighth grade Northwest History Trip every spring. First, we drove up to Spokane’s Campbell house, built for Amasa Campbell in 1898. After lunch, we drove to Cataldo Mission with the beautiful ceiling painted with huckleberry juice. Next we toured the Crystal Gold Mine and panned for gold.
