Thoughts from the Headmaster
Hopefully everyone has adjusted to the time change and spring seems to be in the air! This coming week marks the end of the 3rd quarter of the 2020-2021 school year! Please note the important information on various upcoming events below.
This past week our 7th/8th graders participated by serving in a new community Soup Kitchen at Top Gun Restaurant – made available every Tuesday to those who need a warm meal. Our students enjoyed serving the guests and look forward to making it a monthly service opportunity. They especially enjoyed being able to interact with those who came in!
You should be receiving in the mail the Tuition Preference Form for the new school year. Please note that the $150 deposit/curriculum fee (if not already paid) is due by May 14th, along with this form which designates if you plan to pay in full, or over a 10 or 12 month period. We appreciate your kind attention to this matter as we plan for next year.
We appreciate any efforts you can make to spread the word about Logos Christian Academy… We have started enrolling for the 2021-2022 school year and have very few spaces available in several of the classrooms. There is one open spot in the 4 year old PreK class and 4 spots in our new 3 year old class (please note that children must be 3 years old prior to August to enroll at this time). We have some room in our K-2nd grade classrooms and only 1-2 spots left in 3rd/4th, 5th/6th, and 7th/8th grade at this time. So, if you know of someone considering us, please encourage them to apply now. Our process includes assessment and a Family Interview. Thank you for your support in this way!
Our annual Speech Meet for K-8th is coming next soon… Monday and Tuesday, March 29 & 30th. Please make sure that your child is memorizing their piece and will be ready to present. Parents are welcome to join us as part of the audience. We do ask that you not bring younger siblings as it needs to be totally quiet during the competition. Photo opportunities will be given at the end of each grade completion. No videotaping due to copy right laws. Times for the grade level presentations are approximate and will take place in the Chapel:
• Monday, March 29th: K @ 8:30, 1st @ 9:15, 2nd @ 10:00
• Tuesday, March 30th: 3rd/4th @ 8:30, 5th/6th @ 9:35, 7th/8th at 10:30
Parent-Teacher Conferences Coming April 1st
Parent/Teacher Conferences will take place on April 1st in the afternoon. Thank you for signing up for your time. You should receive a reminder with the time that you signed up for. Third Quarter report cards will be distributed at that time.
Please note that this is a minimum day for students with dismissal at 11:30 am. There is no childcare coverage during conferences.
