Knights’ Fest: Here is a summary of the week:
Tuesday, April 26th – We will kick off the festivities from 6:30-8:30pm with music, cotton candy, archery, chess and banners. Even if students are not signed up for archery, chess, or banners, they are welcome to come.
Wednesday, April 27th – Appropriate dress for the first day of the festival is comfortable clothes that are neat, clean, and modest. In the morning we will watch the seniors debate the staff on the subject of capitalism followed by workshops, competitions, a concert by Eric E. and more workshops.
Thursday, April 28th – Speeches for Associated Student Body positions will begin the morning followed by basketball and volleyball tournaments in the gym. During lunch the classes will compete in different rounds of Bubble Ball. Please note that permission slips with parent signatures are required to participate. We’ll finish the day with pizza for the winning team of the class competitions, sword fighting, and the melee.
Friday, April 29 – The students should come to school in costume either as a character from the literature book that their class has chosen, or as a lord or lady. If the student does not come in costume, they should come in semi-formal attire (a tie for the gentlemen and skirt or dress for the ladies). Please note, if a student bakes a dessert for the competition, he/she must check it in at the gym in the morning, see the baking guidelines for details. The juniors will help set up for the feast from 8:45 – 10:00am in the gym. Students not participating in the baking competition, or helping set up for the feast, need to be at school by 10:15am. If your student would like to come earlier, a movie will be shown in Room 2 that morning. At 10:15 a speaker will talk to the students on “Thankfulness.” The rest of the day will be spent feasting while enjoying entertainment provided by the students. At the end of the meal, the class that wins the entertainment competition and the winners of the baking, art, volleyball, basketball, archery, and sword fighting competitions will be announced.
Boarding Opportunity #1:
Introduction to David Treece: This past year 2015-2016 season was my first year at Logos School after having been homeschooled for ten years. As an18-year-old boarding student, I am completing the 10th grade program at Logos because that was the only class that had an opening. I hope to return to Logos for one more year of study. Since I will be 19 by next May, my parents will graduate me as a homeschool student back in Texas. My father had pastored three different churches in the Dallas, TX area for 27 years before having retired from pastoring 15 months ago. My father now devotes his time to running his business, which he started ten years ago in order to have the financial resources to Christian education his children, even through college. There are 8 children in our family of which I am the 4th child, with 1 older brother, 2 older sisters (all three married), and 4 younger sisters. My older two siblings are students at NSA. My brother finished his bachelor’s degree last year from NSA and has continued on this year with the master’s degree program. My sister will be graduating from NSA in May with her bachelor’s. Both siblings and their spouses are members of Trinity Reformed Church. Last summer Brent and Sandy Belschner graciously agreed to let me board in their home along with three other NSA students who were already contracted with them. I have enjoyed staying with the Belschners very much. Unfortunately, none of the other boarders are returning next year. The Belschners have agreed to board me anyway, but I would actually prefer to have some male roommates since the remaining children at the Belschner home are daughters. They understand that I am looking for other possible options for next year. I enjoy playing the piano and singing as well as playing basketball and running track. If there is any family who either has teenager sons at Logos or who are boarding male NSA students and would consider adding me as a boarder next year, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Belschners are willing to be a reference for me as well if you would like to ask them questions at email@example.com .
Boarding Opportunity #2:
The following student has been accepted to Logos and is looking for a boarding situation for 2016-17. A typical range for boarding a high school student is $7,000-$10,000 for 9 months. If you would like more information please contact me.
