LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE Week 4

LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE Week 4

General

*Class Picture Day for all Grades: Please wear your dress uniform this Friday, September 19. T/TH Preschool Class please come to school at 8:30 to have your pictures taken with the rest of the preschoolers. I apologize for the inconvenience, but we would love to have everyone in the picture!

Fight’n Knight Shirts: We are getting ready to place a final order for more Logos Fight’n Knight shirts. If you are interested, please email Mr. Carnahan at logosad@turbonet.com with your preferred size and number (youth and adult sizes are available). All orders are due September 26. This may be a great Christmas present idea for the cousins!

A Little Help for the Principal’s Page

1. Links: We are currently looking for links to educational sites that we can put on the Logos Principal’s Page. If you have any sites that have been helpful to your family and that meet the requirements below, please let us know so that we can consider them. The site must be:

-free

-applicable to some area of the curriculum that is covered at Logos

-easy to use and navigate without down-loading additional software

2. Pictures: If you attend a Logos event and come away with one or two nice digital pictures that you are willing to share, please email them to me so that I can place them on the page.

Elementary

Preschool 2009-2010: Next year’s preschool class is filling up at a good clip! We currently have five students on the M/W/F list and a few other families that are in the process of applying. If you have any interest in preschool for next year, it may be worth getting your application in early to reserve a spot.

4th Grade Play: This Friday the 4th graders will be performing Johnny Tremain. The assembly will begin with a brief recitation at 8:35 by the 3rd grade class. All are welcome and encouraged to come. Elementary assemblies usually last until 9:15. Lots of fun!

*Elementary Speech Meet: Friday, October 24. Selections are due September 19.

Assembly Accompaniment Tryouts: 4th – 6th grade students are welcome to tryout to accompany singing at elementary assemblies. Tryouts will take place Thursday, September 18th @ 12:00 in the lunch room. See Mr. Whitling for a copy of the two songs.

Secondary

*High Protocol: The juniors and seniors will be attending Phantom of the Opera in Spokane on October 22 for their protocol event this year. The protocol training schedule is listed below. Parents are welcome to attend the training and the actual event as well. See Mr. Carnahan for details.

Protocol training:

Session 1: Sept. 23 (Tues.)- 2nd period

Session 2: Oct. 14 (Tues.)- 3rd period

Session 3: Oct. 20 (Mon.)- 1st period

Session 4: Oct. 21 (Tues)- 4th period

There are a few students who haven’t purchased their Phantom tickets yet. I’d like to encourage you to get that done right away for our planning purposes.

Study Tip for the Week

Encourage your children (1st-9th grade) to begin memorizing their speech meet parts early. The dinner table is a great place to practice. Start by having each child read through his selection, beginning and ending with the title and author. The next night have them recite as much as they can, reading the remainder that has not been memorized yet. By the time the speech meet comes around, the whole family will be ready to hit the stage and perform!

All the best,

Matt Whitling
