LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2017 – Summer #5

General
2017-18 Information: Please check the school website for updated school supply lists, uniform guidelines, secondary fall schedule, etc. The school supply lists can be found under Academics/Elementary (or) Secondary Program.

Back to School Night: Back to School Night for the elementary and secondary will take place the Friday before the first day of school: August 18 at 7:00 in the gym. This is an opportunity for parents to hear from the administration and teachers so that we all get off to a strong start (parents only please).

Uniforms 2017-18: Next year’s uniform requirements will be almost identical to this year’s. The exception will be in the area of secondary shoes. Canvas shoes will no longer be part of the 7th-12th grade uniform for young men or women. We are simply trying to provide some clarity on what Logos means by “dress” shoes.

Elementary
6th Grade Sports: When space is available, we allow 6th graders to play on our junior high sports teams. If you have a 6th grader who may be interested in competing, please keep an eye on the secondary athletics announcements below.

Secondary
Latin Refresher: Mrs. Larsen is offering a Latin Refresher class for incoming 8th-10th graders August 7-11. Please see the Summer Camps brochure for details.

New Secondary Student Orientation: All 7th graders and other new secondary students and their parents are welcome to come Friday, August 18 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM in the lunchroom. This is a time to learn about life at Logos and get set for the new school year. Please visit RenWeb, print out your schedule, and bring it to orientation. If you have questions about RenWeb please contact Mr. Euhus (loreneuhus@logosschool.com).

Junior High School Volleyball: If your daughter is interested in playing junior volleyball (7th and 8th grades) the first practice will take place Wednesday, August 23 at 5:30 PM. Junior high practice will usually be at 5:30 PM 3-4 days a week. Days will vary. We won’t know the JH game schedule until the end of the 2nd week of school. There are so many 7th and 8th grade girls coming out for volleyball, 6th graders will not be able to play this year. If you have questions about the season, please contact Coach Jim Becker: jbecker@logosschool.com

High School Volleyball: If your daughter is interested in playing volleyball (JV and Varsity), the first practice will take place August 11 at 8 AM. The following Monday we will start at the normal practice time of 5:45 AM. If you have questions about the season, please contact Coach Jessica Evans: jessicaevansmoscow@gmail.com.

Junior High and High School Cross-Country: If your son or daughter is interested in running cross-country this year, the first practice will take place August 11 at 8:30 AM at the Moscow JH tennis courts. Practices will be at 8:30 AM until school starts, then at 6:30 AM from that point forward. We have room for 6th graders! If you are interested in participating this fall, please contact the appropriate coach: Junior High (6th-8th grades) – Sophie Whitling: sophie.ilene.whitling@gmail.com, High School (9th-12th grades) – Paula Casebolt: paulacasebolt@yahoo.com

Athletics Details:
To be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities students must have earned at least a 2.5 GPA during the 4th quarter of last school year. High school athletes must bring all required forms to the first practice. Your child will not be able to participate until all forms are in. You can find required form information at www. logosschool.com (Athletics/Athletics Forms). 6th – 8th grade athletes do not need to complete any paper work.

Fees are $90 for high school volleyball or cross-country and $60 for JH volleyball or cross-country. To make special arrangements for fee payment, contact our Activities Director (Jed Whitling ad@logosschool.com).

We would like parents to come to an informational meeting at the beginning of the first day of practice. This is the time that the coach will relay team expectations to you and your athlete. It’s also a great time to get questions answered!

If you have a 9th or 11th Grade student who is planning to participate in sports this coming year, he/she will need to have a physical before the season begins (especially time sensitive for volleyball and cross country). See the school webpage for the correct form to bring to your doctor.

Senior Course Options: 12th Graders who will be participating in senior course options (college/online courses and internships) should be thinking about their proposals for next year. These are due on August 7 to Mr. Whitling via email, or earlier if possible. See the school webpage for details.

Internship Opportunity: Mr. Jed Whitling is interested in having an athletics intern for the first semester of the year. If there is a senior who is interested, please contact him for details (ad@logosschool.com).

All the best,

Matt Whitling
