Year End Celebration
JUNE 2-4, 2019
Join us for a celebration of God's goodness to our school! This will be one of the best seasons to enjoy the Palouse - mild weather, green rolling hills, and plenty of opportunities to connect with Logos Online School families, teachers, and staff. This event is open to all currently enrolled students and their families. Each day will include some events hosted by the school, but you will also have a good amount of time to relax or explore or to coordinate activities with other families as you desire.

7am to 8pm - Northwest History Tour with Dr. Chris Schlect
Additional cost: $65 per person. Sack lunch provided.
Join a daylong tour of the history of our region led by New Saint Andrews College’s Fellow of History, Christopher Schlect. Dr. Schlect is an experienced guide and interpreter of the region’s cultural and historical sites. Attendees travel on a comfortable chartered bus and visit sites that cover a time frame spanning thousands of years of human history. The tour will focus on the 19th century contact between white Americans and the indigenous Nimiipuu people who have inhabited the inland northwest since before human memory. We will review Lewis and Clark, the Spalding Mission, treaties made and broken, and the outbreak of the bitter Nez Perce War of 1877. Here is a sample of what attendees will experience on this tour:
- Walk the site of the first organized church, school and printing press in Idaho, and the first irrigated fields west of the Rocky Mountains.
- Hear legends from time immemorial, tied to specific geological formations along the Clearwater River.
- See manmade objects older than Egypt’s pyramids, and consider what they tell us about the cultures that produced them.
- Walk the most important battlefield in the Pacific Northwest, where the United States Army suffered one of its last humiliating defeats in the American West, and follow a detailed recounting of the battle.
- See the physical and material remains of one of the most successful and controversial Christian missionary projects in the American West, and ponder what lessons it teaches about cross-cultural encounters.
- Look out over some of Idaho's most breathtaking vistas.
- All sites will be individually explained by a professional interpreter who will also draw out their interconnections and relate them in a coherent story about the United States.
- Learn why events that occurred in Idaho warrant serious attention not just in local lore, but in the story of the United States and of world civilization more broadly.
- Ride comfortably on a chartered bus, and watch films that offer different perspectives on early contact between white Americans and the Nez Perce people.
