Logos Christian Academy Update
“A Classical and Christ-Centered Education”
February 1, 2019
“I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
Thoughts from the Headmaster
Please take a few minutes to respond to the Parent Survey that is coming home today. There are about 16 questions, most of which are multiple choice, with an opportunity to include comments, if you wish. Your responses will help us to know what we are doing well and where we need to improve. Including your name is optional. Please return completed surveys to school in the attached envelope by February 15th. Thank you for your participation.
Letters of Intent will be sent home next week. This will outline our tuition schedule for the 2019-2020 school year and ask you to let us know your intentions for your child’s attendance at Logos next year. This enables us to plan accordingly for staffing, as well as curriculum.
Congratulations to all our students who were honored at our Awards Chapel today for Spelling Bee, Math Olympics, Honor Roll A (1st and 2nd quarter) and Honor Roll AB (1st and 2nd quarter). Over half our students received awards in at least one area. We were also reminded that while we recognize the hard work and effort that the students have put into their studies, ultimately we want to give God the glory and praise. “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” I Corinthians 10:31.
