LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2012/13 – #3

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2012/13 – #3

 

General

Enrollment for 2013-14: We are currently accepting applications for new students to Logos for the 2013-2014 school year (current students will re-register in the spring).  If you would like to add your child to the new student enrollment pool, applications can be found at http://logosschool.com/admissions/application/. A number of applications have been submitted for next year’s classes already.

 

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

 

Team Jonah: Many of you are aware that Jonah Grieser, a Logos 5th grader, is battling leukemia up in Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane. Please click on this link to find out how to help.

 

Elementary

Assembly Accompaniment Tryouts:  4th – 6th grade students are welcome to tryout to accompany singing at elementary assemblies.  Tryouts will take place Wednesday, September 19th @ 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.

 

Secondary

Secondary Back to School Night: On Wednesday, September 12 from 7:00-9:00 PM we will re-enact, in miniature, a secondary school day (We had originally scheduled this event for the 14th, but due to scheduling conflicts, it has been moved to the 12th. ).  This is an opportunity for parents to come and sit under the instruction of their child’s teachers as we move through all seven periods contained in a normal school day.  Come and learn apologetics from Mr. Euhus, Classical Literature from Mrs. Merkle and PE from Mrs. Spencer and Mr. Whitling as we help provide a fuller picture of what your secondary student receives each day.

 

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): Follow your doctor’s advice for returning to school.

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).

 

Study Tip for the Week

Busy dads need to have a system for staying in touch with how their kids are doing in school.  Don’t wait for the midterm progress report to come home and tell you how things are going.  Require your child to drop off all graded and returned school work at your spot at the dinner table right when he gets home (or some other convenient spot).  Before dinner you can look through the pile to check progress.  This will also give you the information required to ask intelligent questions during dinner about the topics that are being covered in school.
