Fight’n Knight Day! In order to support our cross country runners and volleyball players as they head to state, this Friday will be a Fight’n Knight Day (nice jeans and your Logos T-shirt). A few people have asked about other shirts: Feed the Need, volleyball, basketball, summer camps, etc. Only the navy game day shirts qualify, from any year.
5th Grade Play: This Friday Miss Clemans’ class will be performing in the gym. The show will open with a recitation by Miss Wilson’s 4th graders at 8:35. All are welcome!
Interschool Speech Meet: If your child has qualified and is going on to the interschool speech meet at The Oaks, please remember to let me know soon if you are able to chaperone. A letter came home with your child this week.
Coats: Please send your child dressed for the weather. Students will go out to recess unless it is in the low teens or very wet.
Promotion Policy: Now that the first quarter report cards are out, I thought it would be helpful to include a reminder about the elementary promotion policy. This is especially important if your child earned an “F” in any subject. Please see the attachment for details. Don’t hesitate to call with any questions or clarifications.
High School Boys and Girls Basketball: Girls begin on 10/30 and boys on 11/10. All 9th and 11th graders coming out for basketball need to have a physical on file with the school before the first day of practice. All 10th and 12th graders coming out for basketball need to have an Interim Questionnaire Form on file with the school before the first day of practice. These forms can be found on the school website under the Athletics tab. The participation fee for High school basketball is $90 per athlete. Students must have earned a 2.5 GPA or higher the previous quarter in order to play.
Dialectic Speech Meet 7th-9th: This Friday, October 27 is the secondary speech meet. There will be an awards assembly for all 7th-12th graders in which some of the superior speeches will be delivered at 2:30 in the gym. All are welcome to attend.
Extracurricular Activities and Schoolwork
There are lots of great activities going on in the secondary (drama, junior high boys basketball, high school girls basketball, planning for mock trial, robotics club, etc.). At Logos, schoolwork comes first. This means that students who participate in extracurricular activities will be held to the same standard as everyone else. Students should look ahead, plan ahead, and redeem the time during busy seasons.
