Homework-O-Meter: These will come home with your student on Friday, October 27. The Homework-O-Meter helps us assess how much work students do at home. Thank you in advance for helping with this survey. Your student will be returning this to school on Friday, November 3rd.
Winter Clothes: Be sure to send your children to school with warm clothes. We will have recess outside unless it is raining hard or below 20 degrees. Now would be an excellent time to ensure that winter clothing is labeled – just in case!
Elementary Honor Roll: This is a special recognition for outstanding academic achievement. Honor roll is achieved based on a student’s grades in the academic courses in a given quarter. An A honor roll award is for students who earn all A’s in the quarter. A/B honor roll is for students who earn no more than 2 B’s (and all the rest A’s) in the other subjects in the quarter.
Elementary Romance Talk: We speak to the 2nd – 6th grade students about elementary romance each year. We are glad to say that this has not been an issue that Logos elementary students have struggled with in recent memory, nor do we have grave concerns this year. Our primary goal is to maintain a positive school culture in which students do not feel pressure to “grow up” too fast in this area. Over the next couple of weeks, Mr. Becker and Mr. Brockwalder will visit classes for this year’s installment, and we thought it would be good for you all to know what we are saying to the students and our expectations in this area. First, the school policy for the elementary and secondary reads, “Public displays of romantic affection are not permitted at school or school activities.” Our interpretation of a public display of romantic affection is very narrow. Any singling out of a person of the opposite sex and anything you could do to earn yourself the title of “an item” falls into this category. Discussions with the 2nd – 6th graders usually begin with Mr. Becker/Mr. Brockwalder asking how old the students are, and then following up by asking how old they think they will be when they get married. Then, we move on to the application. The short form is that these students are many years away from getting married, and any preliminary negotiations are inappropriate in the elementary. We are strongly against silly talk about who likes whom and are thoroughly opposed to premature pairing up (in elementary and secondary). There is far too much fun and hard work for us to keep ourselves occupied with to give attention to cheap soap operas. Please don’t hesitate to let Mr. Becker or Mr. Brockwalder know if you have any questions or concerns.
