LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2010 – Summer #2

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2010 – Summer #2

General

2010-11 Information: Please check the Principal’s Page for the updated school supply list, uniform guidelines, secondary fall schedule, etc…

New Afternoon Secretary: We are very pleased to announce that we have hired Miss Laura Shaw as our new afternoon secretary. She has been working in the office over the past few weeks and is off to a great start.  Please be sure to stop by and welcome her to Logos.

Elementary and Secondary Class Registration: Registration for all Logos students will take place on August 16-17 between 7:00 AM and 3:00 PM.  Please make time on one of these days for at least one parent to come by the front office for 15 minutes and register (students are not required to attend).  This cannot be done over the phone or via email as there are certain forms (immunizations, emergency forms, etc.) that need to be signed and updated before the first day of school.  The student/parent handbooks, locker lists, and more will be available to pick up at this time.  The top three elective choices for your secondary student need to be provided on one of these days.  All senior course choices must be provided at this time as well.  If you are planning to be out of town during registration, please come ASAP later that week to register (no early registrations, please.).

School Day Upgrades: We have added 5 minutes to our 2nd period classes this year to allow for daily Bible reading in the secondary. By investing this time each day in each grade (plus a little extra in JH PE) our secondary students will read through the entire Bible between 7th and 12th grade.  The elementary students currently read through the Bible between 2nd and 6th grade.  This will fulfill the school board’s charge that Logos students read through the Bible at least twice before graduation. The timing change will result in the secondary day running from 8:25-3:20. The elementary day was slightly changed to 8:30-3:10 in order to balance the AM and PM proportion and to maintain consistency with the secondary pick-up times. We are excited about these changes and look forward to giving God’s Word an even more prominent place at Logos School.

Elementary

Elementary Music: We are very grateful to have Miss Allie Bradley back to teach our K-3rd grade music classes this year. She has also been hired to teach 4th grade music as well. Mr. Jonathan Erber has been hired to teach 5th and 6th grade music. Both Miss Bradley and Mr. Erber have been trained in the Kodaly music method and will be preparing our elementary students to work with Dr. Erb in the secondary.

Elementary PE: Our elementary PE program is staffed by volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering to help out by teaching your child’s PE class, please contact me this summer.  Each PE class meets twice a week for 30 minutes. The following classes have volunteers: Preschool, Kindergarten and 4th Grade.

Secondary

Senior Course Options: Those who will be participating in senior course options (independent studies, internships, or college courses) should be starting to construct their proposals. These are due on August 9 to Mr. Whitling via email, or earlier if possible. See the following link for details.http://logosprincipalspage.com/category/secondary/senior-course-offerings/ There are a few opportunities for seniors to work in the Logos Elementary classes as part of an internship.  See Mr. Whitling for details.

Extracurricular FYI: Every 9th and 11th grade student participating in an athletic activity must have a physical performed and this formhttp://logosprincipalspage.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/physicalexam.pdf completed by the physician before the first day of practice.
