Logos School Update – 2011/12 – Week #30
Spring Concert: The Logos Benefit Concert will take the place of our regular Spring Concert this year. See the following ad: On April 21, please plan to come to the Classical Education Meets Classical Music Benefit Concert at 2:00 in the Moscow Church of the Nazarene. Outstanding choral and instrumental numbers will be presented and at the end of the concert the two beautifully restored pianos will be auctioned off. The Logos secondary students will be part of this performance. The elementary classes will be doing a musical demonstration in the late afternoon on Grandparents’ Day.
Game Day Shirts: Next Tuesday, April 17, students in the elementary and secondary are allowed to wear their Fight’n Knight T-Shirts and nice jeans to school to help cheer on our lacrosse team as they face Lake City at home that evening.
Elementary Roster: Due to the fact that God continues to bless our school with so many students, we are excited to announce that we will be opening a second 4th grade class for 2012-13. This will mean that five of our elementary grades will have two classes per grade. Miss Chelsea Jones and Mrs. Dianne Bradley have been hired to teach the 2nd (b) and 4th (b) grade classes respectively, full-time. Depending on enrollment, we may open another 3rd grade class, but for now, the plan is to give Mrs. Jordan an aid and a larger classroom to accommodate a full class. For the grades that have two classes each, the school board has created some simple guidelines that provide direction in deciding which student is placed in which class (listed below).
1. If families have a teacher preference, they are welcome to list that on the reregistration form.
2. Priority will be given to alumni and to families who have been at Logos for five or more years.
3. The administration has the right to make placement decisions for the best interest of each class (taking into consideration the balance of boys and girls, balance of class size, etc.)
Next year’s elementary roster is attached to this email. As we accept new students to the double classes there may be opportunities for more current families to receive their first choice. I have a record of the preferences that were listed on the reregistration form and I will contact you as these become available. With so many double classes planned for next year, we have plenty of room, so please continue to pass the word. Please note that reregistration fees were due March 30 unless you had made other arrangements with Mr. Garfield. These fees are necessary to hold seats for 2012-13.
Kindergarten (PM) Play: The Afternoon Kindergarten class will be performing a play this Friday at 12:30 PM in the auditorium. This will be our first afternoon elementary class play ever. All are welcome to attend.
SAT Testing: Next week we will be administering Stanford Achievement Tests in grades 1-6 and the Metropolitan Readiness Test in Kindergarten. Please avoid scheduling appointments during this time if at all possible.
