LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – Summer #6

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – Summer #6

General

Student Dress: Remember that the first day of school will be a dress uniform day (see handbook for details).  Students will not need to wear their dress uniforms on Friday.  Uniform days will occur only once a week due to laundering considerations.

School Uniform Exchange: Logos will host a uniform exchange on the stage in the auditorium during registration (Monday and Tuesday).  If you are interested in participating, please come by to drop off clothing that you no longer need and pick up whatever you can use – everything is free.

Elementary and Secondary Class Registration: Registration for all Logos students will take place on August 17-18 between 7:00 AM and 3:00 PM.  Please make time on one of these days for at least one parent to come by the front office for 15 minutes and register (students are not required to attend).  This cannot be done over the phone or via email as there are certain forms (immunizations, emergency forms, etc.) that need to be signed and updated before the first day of school.  The student/parent handbooks, locker lists, year books and more will be available to pick up at this time.  The top three elective choices for your secondary student need to be provided on one of these days.  All senior course choices must be provided at this time as well.  If you are planning to be out of town during registration, please come ASAP later that week to register (no early registrations, please.).

Elementary

Elementary PE: If you are interested in volunteering to help out by teaching your child’s PE class, please contact me ASAP.  Each PE class meets twice a week for 30 minutes.  We still have a few grades unspoken for.

Preschool News: This year’s Preschool currently has a total of 19 students enrolled in two classes. Due to the strong interest in Preschool for next year, we have opened a waiting list for 2010-2011.  If you are interested in reserving a slot for your child, please follow this procedure (class preference will be given to current Logos families):

1.      Complete an application.  These can be found at the Logos Principal’s Page.

2.      Schedule a parent interview with the front office (unnecessary for current Logos families).

3.      Pay the preschool materials/registration fee of $50.

New Elementary Family Orientation: For those parents who are new to the elementary or others who would like a refresher regarding “Life at Logos Elementary School”, you are cordially invited to our New Elementary Family Orientation.  This will take place this Friday, August 21 at 3:00 PM in the Auditorium.

Secondary

Open Gym: This Wednesday evening from 7-9 there will be an open gym for 5th-12th grade boys. Bring your own ball.

7th Grade Orientation: All 7th graders and their parents are welcome to attend 7th Grade Orientation this Friday, August 21 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM.  This is a time to learn about life in junior high, receive textbooks, and get set for the new school year.
