LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2016 – #5

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2016 – #5

 

General

Fight’n Knight Day: Our cross country teams will have a “home” race tomorrow at the Elks Golf Course. 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.

 

Land Party: Today is the last day to RSVP! Come celebrate God’s goodness in giving Logos land on which to build and grow!  WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 24, from 4-7 PM WHERE: Our new property on Mountain View Road. The festivities will include a dedication service, live music, inflatable jump houses for the kids, and more. Dinner is on us – fried chicken or Carson Sensing’s famous burgers.

 

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.

 

Individual Picture Retakes: Retakes are Wednesday, September 28. If you missed the first picture day or would like retakes, please send the packet with your child. Students are allowed to change into different clothes for the retakes, but will need to change back into their school uniform afterward.

 

Drop Off and Pick Up Times: Please drop your child off between 8:00-8:25 AM and pick them up between 3:10-3:30 PM (unless they are participating in an extracurricular activity) as there is not supervision beyond those times. Thank you!

 

 

Elementary

Preschool-1st Grade Midterms: Midterms will be coming home this Wednesday. Please sign the bottom of the form and return it by next Wednesday, September 28.

 

2nd-6th Grade Midterms: A midterm form will be coming home on Wednesday. Please log on to Renweb and help your child complete it. Our goal is to encourage families to check out Renweb and to help students use the midterm to plan for improvement in any areas that may need work. Please return these forms by Wednesday, September 28.

 

Speech Meet: Selections need to be memorized by October 7.

 

Secondary

Progress Reports: Secondary grades are available at any time via Renweb. Since we are halfway through the quarter, this would be a great 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 September 26.

 

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,
