September E-Blast

Dear Legacy Academy Parents,

We are all settled in, what a great start to a new school year.  Thank you for entrusting your children to us. Please remember, parents are welcome to call our office with any questions or concerns.  We are happy to help!

This month there is No School on Friday, September 04, 2015, Monday, September 07, 2015, Friday, September 25, 2015 and Monday, September 28, 2015. 

September 11, 2015 is Patriot Day Observation 8:00am in the gymnasium.  Please invite all your friends and family who serve or have served our country in the armed services, firemen and women, nurses, doctors, police officers, teachers etc. to our celebration!  All children involved in a community service oriented club may wear their uniforms including Girl and Boy Scouts, AWANA, ROTC, etc. on this day.  We are still looking for donations of brunch items for our celebration.  All donation costs and time count towards volunteer hours.  Please bring in disposable containers, or label your containers with first and last name.

Please remember, students needing a hot lunch must place an order by 8:25am each day. Keep this in mind if your student is coming late.  Make checks payable to “Elizabeth School Lunch Program” for lunch accounts, and add the name(s) of your student in the memo along with their grade. More information about our lunch program can be found at www.elizabeth.k12.co.usfoodservices.aspx.

Sign up on our website for Help Counter to register your volunteer hours at HelpCounter.net.

Free and reduced lunch applications are available on our website or hard copies are available at the front office.

This school year Legacy Academy is focusing on building character. School wide the students are asked to R.O.A.R. This means students are asked to be Respectful, On Task, Appropriate and Responsible. Students who show R.O.A.R behaviors are awarded a R.O.A.R Award. Then 10 R.O.A.R awards are drawn every month and those students will have ice cream with Mr. Naber. 

In addition to R.O.A.R. awards we are teaching our students about Character Traits.  The Character Trait schedule is as follows:

  • Respect/Responsibility-  August/September 
  • Honesty- October 
  • Compassion- November 
  • Humility- December 
  • Integrity- January 
  • Courage- February
  • Perseverance- March 
  • Courtesy – April 
  • Cooperation- May
