Logic/Rhetoric Parent-Teacher Conferences

As Conference season is upon us, we wanted to remind you that there is no day set aside for conferences this year. Instead, we are opting for parents and teachers to schedule conferences as needed sometime between October 9th and November 10th. You may email your child's teacher directly to request a conference, or they may reach out to you should a meeting be needed. Otherwise, conferences are not required.

Voices of Veritas Podcast

C.S. Lewis: The Abolition of Man

How might the education our students receive at Veritas, as a Classical Christian school, be a counter to the terrible education Lewis describes in The Abolition of Man?

Tune in to hear an interview with Mrs. Ward (Rhetoric school teacher) about a recent course on C.S. Lewis's book that she recently completed.

Salt and Light Serve-a-thon

Thank you to the PTF leadership team, parent coordinators, agency partners, and volunteers for a wonderful Salt & Light event last week. This day of service is always a highlight of the year, and this year was no exception.

The Veritas Soccer Teams had a productive week. On the Varsity side, the Warriors defeated Lake Lure Classical Academy (6-0), Temple Baptist School (10-1), Franklin School of Innovation (7-1), and The Master’s Academy (3-2). The Logic School Team tied IC Imagine (1-1), lost to Pinnacle Classical Academy (0-1), and beat the Asheville Trailblazers (3-1)

The Varsity Volleyball Team won all three matches without dropping a set. Our girls beat Lake Lure (3-0), Franklin School of Innovation (3-0), and The Master’s Academy (3-0). Our JV Team beat Lake Lure (2-0) and TMA (2-0). In between those two matches, our JV Team played against a Varsity Team from Temple Baptist and won the match 3-2. Great job ladies!
