LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 11

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 11

2009-2010

General

Interschool Speech Meet: The interschool speech meet will take place November 6.  The secondary students will compete here at Logos and the elementary competitors will travel to the Oaks in Spokane.  We currently have enough drivers and chaperones, but of course other parents are welcome to come along and support their kids.

Fight’n Knight Shirts: This Friday is the first day of the MCL Volleyball Tournament.  Fight’n Knight shirts and nice jeans are in.  Inter-school speech meet competitors should be in dress uniform until the competition is over.

Elementary

Family Lunch Table: Parents are welcome to come and eat lunch with their students anytime.  We have a special Family Table devoted specifically for that.

Homework-o-Meter: Elementary Homework-o-Meters will come home this Friday with your children.  Please fill these out over the course of the next week and return them to the classroom teachers on November 16.  This helps us gauge the amount of homework our elementary students are doing each night.

Secondary

Winter Activities: Winter is an exciting time in the secondary with knowledge bowl, mock trial, and basketball all starting up.  Mr. Carnahan is working hard to schedule these three activities so that there are very few or no conflicts between them.  If your child wants to participate in more than one of these events, it is important that he communicate this to his coaches before the season begins.

Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children Home

Colds: Please keep your child at home if he has a fever over 100 degrees or is experiencing discomfort that would interfere with his ability to perform in school (i.e. uncontrollable coughing, severe lack of energy).

Conjunctivitis (pink-eye): Following a diagnosis of bacterial conjunctivitis, the child may return to school after the first dose of prescribed medication.

Diarrhea/Vomiting: A child with diarrhea and / or vomiting should stay at home and return to school only after being symptom-free for 24 hours.

Fever: The child should remain at home with a fever greater than 100 degrees.  The child can return to school after he has been fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin).
