LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – 2022/23 #10  (Nov 2, 2022) 

————-  GENERAL  ————-

New Student Applications for 23-24: We accept new student applications for the following year on the first day of school. We have been processing and accepting preschool applications for 23-24 since August. If you know anyone who is interested in Logos preschool for next year, please encourage them to apply soon. There are still a few seats available.

Available Position: Our wonderful Kelsey Grauke will be retiring from her role as Administrative Assistant to spend more time at home with her family.  We are seeking a replacement for two mornings a week at Logos East.  If you are interested in the position, please contact Kalen Brockwalder.  

Cancellation Or Delayed Start Time:  Logos School very rarely closes, but in case of closure or delay due to severe weather, Mr. Whitling or Mr. Euhus will send out an official e-mail by 7 am and post it on our website, specifically as an update on the “Parent Portal” page.  Do not assume that Logos School is closed if other schools are closed; every school district makes its own determination.  

Logos School tends to remain open through nearly any weather as a service to parents.  If Logos School stays open and you do not think it safe to travel to school, or if you need to be late, please do what you deem best for your family.  We will help your child make up any missed work. 

————-  ELEMENTARY  ————-

Snow Boots: Elementary students are welcome to wear snow boots throughout the winter season.

Plastic Silverware: Please make sure to send this with your kids if they need it for lunch. The school does not provide these items.

Elementary Romance Talk: Over the past few weeks Mr. Brockwalder and Mr. Becker have been visiting the elementary classes (2nd-6th grades) to discuss romance.  Our focus has been on keeping Logos free of romance evidenced by pairing up at recess, coarse jesting and joking, writing notes to someone else, etc.  We also focus on that there is plenty of time before all of that is appropriate.  We emphasize that it is not appropriate at Logos all the way up through 12th grade.

Study Tip: Report cards came out last week. Many of us have busy enough schedules to think that if we actually looked over the card and made it to the right elementary conference at the right time, we had a successful week. Now is a good time, if you haven’t already, to sit down with each of your children and discuss their progress. Go over the report card together and talk about the feedback that you received from their teacher. Set a few simple goals that you will be able to remember and hold them accountable for when progress reports come home in November.

Quarter Zip Pullover Donation:  A generous donor has offered to purchase a quarter zip pullover with an embroidered Logos logo for every high school student.  You may access the order form here: Quarter Zip Order Form

Winter Boot Season:  Winter boot season will start on Monday, November 7th.  Students are authorized to wear snow and rain boots on campus or to wear their uniform shoes.

Dialectic Speech Meet:  Friday, November 4th.  The 7th-9th grade students will be presenting their pieces during first and second period (8:25-10:15 am) that day and all the secondary classes will attend the awards assembly during seventh period (2:30-3:20 pm) in the gym.  Parents are encouraged to attend to observe their children in the morning, and are invited to attend the awards ceremony that afternoon.

Secondary World View Assembly:  On Tuesday, November 8 from 12:40-1:30 Pastor Doug Wilson will present on “Life Between the Sexes.”  Parents, please join us for this thought-provoking presentation.  Dads are invited to join us for Wooster’s Pizza at 12pm in the gym. Please RSVP to Logos West by Friday, November 4.

ACCS Choral Festival:  On Friday, November 11, the high school choir will be traveling to Spokane for the ACCS Choral Festival.  Due to the number of high school students in choir, we will not be holding classes for the 9-12th grades on that day.  If your high school student is not traveling with the choir, they should stay home on that day.
