LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 9

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 9

2009-2010

General

Elementary

Elementary Speech Meet: Friday, October 23.  Parents are welcome to attend.  No camcorders or younger siblings please.

Parent/Teacher Conferences: Parent/Teacher Conferences will take place October 22nd and 23rd in the morning and late afternoon.  This is a great opportunity to see blind spots-if you want to.  We are looking forward to meeting with you!

Secondary

Each year the high school students participate in the Logos Protocol program in which we teach the importance of manners and deference.  After teaching classes on proper dress, the art of conversation, table etiquette, and more, we create an enjoyable social event in which the students can practice and become comfortable with what they have learned.  Each year the juniors and seniors participate in High Protocol, a formal event, usually in Spokane.  The freshmen and sophomores participate in Low Protocol, a local semi formal event.

This year the juniors and seniors will dine at the Glover Mansion and then attend the Broadway production of The Lion King in Spokane on December 2nd.  Today the high school students attended their first protocol training session which covered grooming and proper attire for semi formal and formal events.  The remainder of the junior and senior protocol training sessions will occur the week before Thanksgiving break.  In the spring we will conduct training for the freshmen and sophomores before their Low Protocol event.

It is important to keep in mind that this is not the equivalent of “prom” or a date.  The young men will be assigned a young lady to escort for the first half of this event, but escorts will be changed at least once during the evening.

Study Tip for the Week

From this point on, the speech meet judges will not have a copy of each student’s selection in front of them.  If your child misses a word or even a whole line from his selection, the best thing to do is – smile and keep on reciting.  If the student continues on confidently after a mistake, there’s a good chance that no one else will even notice.
