Since the School of Logic’s goal, along with all of Regents, is to inspire our students to love and practice that which is true, good and beautiful, our desire is that the School of Logic be a place of learning, laughter, community and joy.
This past Friday, you might have noticed our Logic students arriving to school in their pajamas. No, they didn’t all oversleep, and this wasn’t a way to celebrate the extra hour of sleep that we all got this past weekend, even though in my opinion, that is always a reason to celebrate. Pajama Day is just a part of life in the School of Logic.
We all remember our middle school years; some of us wince at the thought of them, others remember them with fear and trembling. In fact, the Logic faculty often jokes about the responses we receive when we tell people what we do for a living. We are usually greeted with words of sympathy or looks of horror. We laugh, because this is not our sentiment or experience at all.
Since the School of Logic’s goal, along with all of Regents, is to inspire our students to love and practice that which is true, good and beautiful, our desire is that the School of Logic be a place of learning, laughter, community and joy. To help foster these things, we have recently started a House System. Our Houses selected members for the Logic Leadership Council (LLC). One of the functions of the LLC is to help encourage a healthy student life in Logic Hall. Thus Pajama Day last Friday.
Parents are also an important part of life in the School of Logic. Logic parents are encouraged to help chaperone ministeriums and field trips, and they help plan and execute special functions. We also invite parents to join us in the Hearth Room regularly throughout the year for Parent Coffee and Devotionals. These Parent Coffees are open to all Regents parents, not just Logic parents. This is an opportunity for us to practice hospitality and for all of us as parents to encourage one another, pray with one another, and talk about the joys and struggles of raising children in this day and age.
I invite all parents to join us tomorrow at 8:15 a.m. for our next Parent Coffee and Devotional. We will be talking about how to foster spiritual disciplines in our homes and families. But please do not come in your pajamas!
