LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2017 – Summer #7

General

Back to School Night: Back to School Night for the elementary and secondary is this Friday, 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).

 

Eclipse: Due to the fact that some amazing teachers have purchased eclipse glasses for their classes and the NASA Idaho Space Grant Consortium has donated even more, all 2nd-12th graders will have glasses available on the first day of school! The 2nd through 12th graders will have time to go up and view the eclipse between 10:25-10:30 AM. Preschool through 1st grade students will need a parent to come if you would like for them to view the eclipse at the same time in the morning. Here is a link to the NASA Eclipse website so that you can prepare your family for the event.

 

Dress Uniform: The first day of school will be a dress uniform day (see the school website for details). Students will not need to wear their dress uniforms on Friday of the first week. Elementary students will wear their regular M-Th uniforms and secondary students will be in Field Day attire (more information coming) on Friday the 25th. Dress uniform days will occur only once a week due to laundering considerations.

 

Logos Ties: We have a few elementary ties left, but when those are gone, all dress uniform ties will be provided by Lands’ End. Details can be found here.

 

Welcome Back Ball: The Student Council will be hosting the Welcome Back Ball on Friday, August 25th.  The elementary dance will run from 6:00-7:30, with a secondary dance practice following from 7:30-8:00. The Belschners will be teaching a new dance during the practice time, so be sure not to miss it! After the dance practice, the secondary ball will go from 8:00-10:00.  The cost will be $5 per student, no more than $15 per family. Parents are encouraged to attend and their admission is free. Please come, we would love to have you! Attire for balls – Men: dress shirts, ties & slacks; Ladies: knee length dresses/skirts, modest necklines, no strapless tops, halter-tops, or spaghetti straps; Shoes: Clean athletic shoes on the floor only. No dress shoes or high heels.

 

Elementary

Elementary Welcome Assembly: First day of school, August 21, from 9:00-9:30 AM in the gym. Parents are welcome to attend.

 

Secondary

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. School uniforms are not required. 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).

 

Secondary Welcome Assembly: August 22 from 8:25-9:15 AM in the gym. Parents are welcome to attend. Since this will be Tuesday morning during our normal elective time, the first day of secondary electives will be Thursday.

 

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

 

 

All the best,
