LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2017 – #23

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2017 – #23

 

General

Students on Campus: Our school has grown to the point where we need to be more aware of who is on campus and why they are here. Please see the pertinent policy below, and as always, feel free to ask if you have questions or concerns.

 

Non-Logos students are not allowed on campus without written permission from the principal (this includes before and after school, lunch, balls, special events, etc.). Athletic competitions and drama/music productions are the only exceptions to this.

 

Elementary

Preschool 2017-18: We are making plans to open up a M/W/F afternoon preschool class (12:30-3:10 PM). If your child has already been accepted into one of the morning classes and you would prefer this new afternoon offering, please let me know.

 

2nd Grade Play: This Friday Mrs. Wilson’s class will be on stage performing a play. The show will open at 8:35 with a recitation by the secondary choir. All are welcome to attend!

 

Parent/Teacher Conferences (March 23 & 24): Families with three or more students in the elementary will receive an email this week with details on how to sign up. If you fit this category, and don’t receive an email by Friday evening, please contact the front office. All other families will receive an opportunity to sign up next week.

Secondary

Rhetoric Speech Meet (10th-12th Grade): The meet will take place February 24. More details are available on the school website.

 

Elementary Friendship Talk

Over the past few weeks I have been visiting the elementary classes to discuss friendship. The conversation starts out with Proverbs 16:28, “A perverse man stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.” One of our goals is that your children will become close friends as they work and play together at Logos. Solomon tells us that gossip breaks friends apart. I discuss this with the students and then go on to identify other threats to friendship as well. We talk about the fact that at Logos, if you want a BFF, it’s Jesus and your family, everyone else is a good friend. We don’t want these friendships to be severed through ungodly exclusions (ignoring the 3rd wheel) or friend hogs (who dominate one person and push everyone else away). As always, please feel free to follow up on these conversations at home and let me know if you have ideas for what could be covered in the future.

 

Cheers,
