Knights’ Fest is next week! This ends up being a fun, busy week with students working on uniforms for volleyball teams, baking in the evenings for the baking competition, working on class literature and textbook costumes, and preparing the class craft. Please be on the lookout for an email with workshop selections that you can discuss with your child. The students will sign up for workshops during second period later this week. Please also keep an eye on the daily announcements as important dates and times will be posted there. We are looking forward to a great event!
ChatGPT: The latest piece of technology to hit pop culture is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven chatbot called ChatGPT. The bot has the capability to generate written responses to very specific questions and can write in a style specific to the desire of the user. Last week during the secondary assembly Mr. Wiggins talked about this FREE piece of technology and how many academics are fearing that ChatGPT may spell the end to writing as we know it. Although at Logos we do not see this as the end of our writing curriculum, we do recognize that students may be tempted to use this bot, or ones like it, to produce written work they can pass off as original. Mr. Wiggins encouraged the secondary students to flee from this temptation as any use of AI Chatbots to produce written work is considered plagiarism.
