LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2016 – #7

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2016 – #7

 

General

One Week Left: There is only one week left in the first quarter. This is a good time to check grades on Renweb (grades 2-12) and make sure that your student is ready to finish the quarter strong! Elementary quarter grades stand alone as four individual grades per subject over the course of the year. Secondary quarter grades are averaged together for a semester grade that is recorded on a student’s transcript (Q1 averaged with Q2 = Fall Semester, Q3 averaged with Q4 = Spring Semester).

 

Parent/Teacher Conferences (October 20 & 21): Almost all of the scheduling is complete. A reminder email will be sent out the Monday before conferences. If you have not scheduled yet, please visit this site to do so: http://www.ptcfast.com/schools/Logos

 

Elementary

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

 

Secondary

7th-9th Speech Meet: Memory checks will take place during the week of October 10.

 

PSAT: The 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT the morning of October 19 in the gym.

Study Tip for the Week

Plan ahead. Sit down with your child on Saturday and read over the HAS (elementary) or the Weekly Test Schedule (secondary) together. Talk about the tests and assignments with your child so that he is prepared before the week begins. A few minutes of discussion and study Saturday morning can help take the pressure off in the middle of the week when the circus is in full swing. One elementary example is having your child learn the first 7 Latin and spelling words on Saturday. This puts them in the position of starting the following week ahead of the game. If your child is in 2nd-12th grade, their grades are available on RenWeb. Many families use the weekend to check on academic progress so that they can help emphasize areas that may need extra attention.

 

Cheers,
