LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2017 – #5

General
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 Tuesday, September 26. 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 27.

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 27.

Speech Meet: Selections need to be memorized by October 6.

Secondary
Speech Meet: Secondary (7th-9th) Speech Meet selections are due October 2.

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.

All the best,

Matt Whitling
