LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2017 – #2

General
Enrollment for 2018-19: We are currently accepting applications for new students to Logos for the 2018-2019 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/admissions/application/ Preschool classes are filling up-now is the time to apply.

Fight’n Knight Day: Our high school girls will have a home volleyball game against Potlatch this Thursday. 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 Mr. Jed Whitling at the AD office this Wednesday or Thursday before school.

Individual Pictures: Individual pictures will be taken this Friday morning. Families may choose between having their child wear his or her dress uniform or dressing up in a special outfit of your choice. Modesty standards still apply. This is not a day to dress down.

Elementary
Assembly Accompaniment Tryouts: 4th – 6th grade students are welcome to tryout to accompany singing at elementary assemblies. Tryouts will take place Wednesday, September 13 @ 12:00 in the lunchroom. Student accompanists receive one free hot lunch for every assembly they accompany. The music came out last week.

Speech Meet: Speech Meet information packets will be coming home with your students this Friday. All students in 1st-6th grade participate. Selections are due September 18.

Secondary
Honors Classes: The following honors classes will be offered for the first semester: 9th Grade European History and Church History, 11th Grade Pre-Calculus, and 12th Grade British Literature and Calculus. Invitations will be coming home to all students who earned a 94% or higher in these subject areas in the 4th quarter of last year. Further details about our honors classes are included on the invitation.

Book Covers: All secondary hardback books need to be covered tomorrow. Please encourage your child to cover these and bring them to class to show their teachers-Thanks!

Grievance / Improvement Policy
Logos is committed to making small improvements each year so that our school becomes better over time. If you have a suggestion that you think would help improve the school, or if you have a concern (or grievance) with someone involved with the school, please follow the Grievance / Improvement Policy listed in the Parent/Student Handbook. Here are a few basics to keep in mind:
1. Always assume the best (the two greatest commandments are to love God and to love your neighbor)
2. Go directly to the person responsible and graciously ask for their perspective. Explain your concern or idea. Do not pass your concern along to others as this can hurt the school, spread gossip, and possibly make the problem worse.
3. If you still have a concern, go to the next level of authority. We want to hear from you and we want to use your perspective to help improve the school.

All the best,

Matt Whitling
