LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2010 – #4

General

Fight’n Knight Shirts: The first home volleyball game (on a week day) will take place Thursday, September 30.  Elementary and secondary students are allowed to wear their Fight’n Knight shirt (this year’s or last) and nice jeans (no rips, stains, etc…) or the regular school uniform.  The goal is to have students and parents stay in their Fight’n Knight shirts when they come to cheer for the volleyball girls. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt for your elementary student or a younger sibling, please see Mr. Carnahan in the registrar’s office.

Speech Meet: Elementary and Secondary (7th-9th) Speech Meet selections are due to the classroom teacher this Friday, September 17.

Absences: Please be sure to contact the front office if your child is going to miss school for any reason.

Elementary

Assembly Accompaniment Tryouts: 4th – 6th grade students are welcome to tryout to accompany singing at elementary assemblies.  Tryouts will take place this Thursday, September 16th @ 12:00 in the lunch room.  Student accompanists receive one free hot lunch for every assembly they accompany. See Mr. Whitling for a copy of the two songs.

6th Grade Play: The 6th graders will be performing The Taming of the Shrew this Friday morning.  The show will open with a recitation by the 3rd grade at 8:35 in the auditorium. All are welcome to attend.

Secondary

Team Pictures: Team pictures for XC and Volleyball will take place next Monday after school. Be sure to send your child’s uniform to school with them.

Study Tip for the Week

Encourage your children (1st-9th grade) to begin memorizing their speech meet parts early.  The dinner table is a great place to practice.  Start by having each child read through his selection, beginning and ending with the title and author.  The next night have them recite as much as they can, reading the remainder that has not been memorized yet.  By the time the speech meet comes around, the whole family will be ready to hit the stage and perform!

All the best,
