LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2014-15 – #5

 

General

Sub List: Parents do the majority of our substitute teaching throughout the year. Compensation comes in the form of decreased tuition for the following school year. If you are interested in being on our sub list, please come by the front office and fill out a short application.

 

Class Pictures: Class pictures will take place this Friday in the gym. Students should wear their dress uniforms as usual on Friday.

 

Elementary

Speech Meet: Speech Meet selections are to be memorized by Thursday, October 10.

 

Progress Reports: We will be sending home progress reports this Friday with each elementary student. This is a simple mid-quarter check just to make sure everyone is on track to complete the quarter successfully. In order to provide an even more detailed academic picture, Renweb is open for all 2nd – 6th graders so that parents can see specific grades in each category. Please take this opportunity to sit down with your child and discuss their progress so far in school.

 

Secondary

Progress Reports: Secondary grades are available at any time via Renweb. Since we are half way through the quarter, this would be a good week to sit down with your secondary student and see how they are doing in each class.

 

Speech Meet: Secondary (7th-9th) Speech Meet selections are due October 3.

 

Honors Classes: The following honors classes will be offered for the first semester: 9th Grade Church History, 9th Grade European History, 9th Grade European Lit., 9th Grade Latin, 10th Grade US History, 10th Grade Latin, 10th Grade Algebra II, 11th Grade Chemistry, 11th Grade Pre-Calculus, 9th-11th Grade Choir, 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

One helpful way to teach your kids not to procrastinate is to ingrain in them the need to study at least Two Days Out. Two Days Out means studying for Friday’s test on Wednesday and Thursday instead of simply the night before. Studying for predictable subjects like spelling and Latin should be spread over the course of the entire week, but for other quizzes and small tests, especially in the secondary, Two Days Out helps form a pattern of planned investment rather than last minute gambling.

 

 

Cheers,
