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.

 

Speech Meet: Secondary (7th-9th) Speech Meet selections are due October 2.

 

Honors Classes: The following honors classes will be offered for the first semester: 9th Grade Church History, 9th Grade European History, 11th Grade Chemistry, 11th Grade Classical History, 12th Grade Physics, and 12th Grade British Literature.  Invitations will be coming home to all students who have earned a 94% or higher in these classes by midterm. Further details about our honors classes are included on the invitation.

 

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!
