LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2016 – #3

General
Fight’n Knight Day: Our high school girls will have a home volleyball game against Kendrick tomorrow. Elementary and secondary students are allowed to wear their Logos Game Day Shirts (this year’s or a previous year’s) and nice blue jeans (no rips, stains, etc…) or the regular school uniform to school that day. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt for yourself, an elementary student, or a younger sibling, please see the front office.

Enrollment for 2017-18: We are currently accepting applications for new students to Logos for the 2017-2018 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/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/16-17-Application4.pdf Preschool classes are filling up quickly!

Absences/Tardies for secondary students: If your child will be absent or tardy from school for any reason (illness, planned, funeral, Dr. appointment., etc.) please notify the front office along with having the student contact each teacher to get assignments. If we don’t hear from you then we record it as an unexcused absence and follow up with an office visit.

Elementary
Assembly Accompaniment Tryouts: 4th – 6th grade students are welcome to tryout to accompany singing at elementary assemblies. Tryouts will take place Wednesday, September 14 @ 12:00 in the lunchroom.

Speech Meet: Selections are due September 19.

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 get your attention. Require your child to drop off all graded and returned schoolwork at your spot at the dinner table right when he gets home (or some other convenient spot). Before dinner you can look through the stack 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.

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).

Cheers,

Matt Whitling
