LOGOS SCHOOL UPDATE – Week 11
Fight’n Knight Shirts: The volleyball team will play their first tournament game this Friday. Students in the elementary and secondary may wear either their Fight’n Knight t-shirts and nice jeans to school or dress uniforms. The second order of shirts are in, see Mr. Carnahan for yours.
Homework-o-Meter: Please remember to keep track of homework this week. Homework-o-Meters are due back to the classroom teachers on November 10.
Interschool Speech Meet: The interschool speech meet will take place November 7. We are hosting the elementary meet this year, and we are looking forward to having two sister schools to compete with: The Oaks (Spokane, WA), and Lakes Bible Academy (Hauser, ID). Elementary competitors should compete in their dress uniforms, but they are welcome to change into their Fight’n Knight shirts when they’re done. Parents are welcome to attend the awards ceremony in the auditorium at 12:40.
Secondary Speech Meet 7th-9th: This Friday, November 7th is the speech meet at The Oaks in Spokane. Mr. Carnahan will be driving the bus up for the competition. Departure from Logos will take place at 9:15 AM and the students should arrive back to campus at 4:30. Competitors should wear their dress uniforms for this event.
Winter Activities: Winter is an exciting time in the secondary with basketball, knowledge bowl, and mock trial all starting up. Mr. Carnahan is working hard to schedule these three activities so that there are very few or no conflicts between them. If your child wants to participate in more than one of these events, it is important that he prioritize his level of commitment to each activity, and that he communicate this prioritization to his coaches at the beginning of the season.
Extracurricular Activities and Schoolwork: There are lots of great activities going on in the secondary (girls volleyball tournament, Oklahoma production, junior high boys basketball games, high school boys basketball tryouts, etc.). At Logos, school comes first. This means that students who participate in extracurricular activities will be held to the same standard as everyone else. Students should look ahead, plan ahead, and redeem the time during busy seasons like this.
Poetry Out Loud: We are excited to announce that the 10th – 12th graders this year will be competing in a national poetry competition called Poetry Out Loud. The advantages of this program over what we have traditionally done are listed below:
1. A specific curriculum for teaching poetry recitation
2. An established program that could increase the quality of competition
-more direct instruction
-video lessons and examples
2. Opportunities for students beyond an in-school competition
-The school winner will compete in a state completion
-The state champion wins an expenses paid trip to compete at nationals in Washington, DC.
-The national champion wins a $20,000 college scholarship.
