LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2019 – #2
Fight’n Knight Day!: This Tuesday students are welcome to wear their school shirts and nice blue jeans as we support our volleyball team as they open their season that evening against Deary High School. This is the first home game of the season! Come out and cheer for the Lady Knights (5:30 JV, Varsity following).
New Applications: We are currently accepting applications for new students to Logos for the 2020-2021 school year (current students will re-register in the spring). If you would like to add your child to the new student enrollment pool, applications can be found on the school website. Preschool classes tend to fill up quickly-now is the time to apply. Remember that the preschool age cutoff is 4 years old by June 1. We will process those students who meet this requirement first, and then any age waiver requests after that.
Individual Pictures: Individual pictures will be taken this Friday morning. Families may choose between having their child wear his or her dress uniform or dressing up in a special outfit of your choice. Modesty standards still apply. This is not a day to dress down (professional sports jerseys, jeans, etc.).
Assembly Accompaniment Tryouts: 4th – 6th grade students are welcome to tryout to accompany singing at elementary assemblies. Tryouts will take place Thursday, September 12 @ 12:00 in the lunchroom. Student accompanists receive one free hot lunch for every assembly they accompany. Music was distributed last week.
Speech Meet: Speech Meet information packets will be coming home with your students this week. All students in 1st-6th grade participate. Selections are due September 16.
Mock Trial Coach: We are in need of a Mock Trial B team coach. If you are interested, please contact our AD, Patrick Lopez (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council: There will be a meeting with Mayor Bill Lambert at lunch this Tuesday in room 4 for anyone interested in the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council. All 9th-12th grade students are invited to come and find out more about this leadership opportunity.
Book Covers: All secondary hardback books need to be covered tomorrow. Please encourage your child to cover these and bring them to class to show their teachers-Thanks!
Grievance / Improvement Policy
Logos is committed to making small improvements each year so that our school becomes better over time. If you have a suggestion that you think would help improve the school, or if you have a concern (or grievance) with someone involved with the school, please follow the Grievance / Improvement Policy listed in the Parent/Student Handbook. Here are a few basics to keep in mind:
- Always assume the best (the two greatest commandments are to love God and to love your neighbor).
- Go directly to the person responsible and graciously ask for their perspective. Explain your concern or idea. Do not pass your concern along to others as this can hurt the school, spread gossip, and possibly make the problem worse.
- If you still have a concern, go to the next level of authority. We want to hear from you and we want to use your perspective to help improve the school.
