Logos Christian Academy Update
“A Classical and Christ-Centered Education”
For Week of April 12, 2021

Thoughts from the Headmaster
Thank you to all of our parents for your participation in Parent/Teacher Conferences yesterday! We sincerely appreciate your partnership in your child’s education! We are in the “home stretch” of the 2020-2021 school year! Please be sure to turn in your Tuition Payment Preference Form at your earliest convenience as this secures your child’s spot for next school year and helps us with our planning. Deadline to return it is May 14, 2021.
We are still in need of filling 2 teacher positions for next year. We have an opening in the new Preschool 3-year-old class, as well as the 5th-8th Humanities position. If you know of someone who might be interested, please have them contact me for further information. We appreciate you spreading the word! Additionally, if you hear of parents who are considering Logos as an option next year, please encourage them to enroll early. We only have 1-2 spots left in several of the classes.
Praying that you and your family have a lovely Resurrection Sunday celebrating our risen Savior and basking in the warm sunshine! Take some time to make memories and love on your kids during the break from April 5-9th. We will be back on April 12th ready to power through the last 8 weeks of school!
