LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2013/14 – #2

General

Enrollment for 2014-15: We are currently accepting applications for new students to Logos for the 2014-2015 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/.

 

Friday Attire: This Friday we will begin our normal pattern of wearing our dress uniforms.  Sometimes it is tempting to want to slide into the weekend both mentally and physically.  By dressing up we want to remind ourselves and each other to finish strong.

 

Game Day Shirts: The first home volleyball games for our high school girls will take place next Tuesday, September 10.  Elementary and secondary students are allowed to wear their Logos Game Day Shirts (this year’s or a previous year’s) and nice jeans (no rips, stains, etc…) or the regular school uniform.  The goal is to have students and parents stay in their Game Day Shirts when they come to cheer for the volleyball girls. The first 50 people wearing a Game Day Shirt into the gym get a free hot dog. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt for yourself, an elementary student, or a younger sibling, please see the front office.

 

Elementary

Double Class Unity: One main focus in the elementary this year is creating and maintaining unity between our double classes. The teachers are self-consciously working together to make sure that classroom standards are very similar, and they are also looking for ways to ensure that students in both classes have regular contact with each other. For example, in third grade, both Mrs. Akin’s and Mrs. Loyd’s classes have the following regular contact: All recesses together (45 minutes/day), All PE classes together (1 hour/week), Lunch together, boys on one table, girls on another (1 day/week), Field trips scheduled together (stay tuned for the first one in September). Our goal in this is to provide intentional contact between the classes so that students in both know and enjoy each other’s company while benefiting from small class sizes and consistent academic standards.

 

Elementary Back to School Night: Please save Friday, September 6 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM on your calendar.  Back to School Night is a time to meet your child’s teacher and find out more about the school and class.  This event is for parents only, please.

 

Speech Meet: Speech Meet information packets will be coming home with your students this week. Selections are due September 16.

 

Assembly Accompaniment Tryouts:  4th – 6th grade students are welcome to tryout to accompany singing at elementary assemblies.  Tryouts will take place Wednesday, September 18 @ 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 – Rescheduled – : Back to School Night has been rescheduled for Tuesday, September 17 from 7:00-9:00 PM due to conflicts with the fair. On that evening we will re-enact, in miniature, a secondary school day.  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, Logic from Mr. Nance, and PE from Mrs. Spencer and Mr. Whitling as we help provide a fuller picture of what your secondary student receives each day.
