Legacy Board Update

Hello Legacy Family,

We wanted to take a moment to say Thank You! to all those families that have participated and supported our Nerf Night Fundraisers. We also wanted to let you know what we have been able to do with the money we have raised so far. We have fully funded our Character Education Program ($1500), we have also been able to provide funds towards the new sound system for the school ($2500), and have been able to purchase new, longer lasting equipment for future Nerf Night events.

The sound system was also made possible by generous grants from The Elizabeth Education Foundation, IREA, Legacy PTCO, and donations from individual Legacy Parents. We are grateful for the support of each of these organizations and our Legacy families!

Thank you again for all who have supported our school!

Girls on the Run

imgres-1Coming this spring to Legacy Academy

Calling all 3rd– 5th grade girls. Come be a part of the fun!

Join us at Girls on the Run!

So… What is Girls on the Run?

Stretch yourself – physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.  Girls will be inspired to a lifetime of self-respect and a healthy lifestyle through an innovative program that combines training for a 3.1 mile run/walk race with a fun, health education lesson plan.  This program promotes individual achievement and self –confidence.  Girls gain self-esteem and learn healthy lifestyle habits while training for a 5K run/walk race.

Girls on the Run is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls stay out of the “Girl Box” – a place where girls are valued more for their outward appearance than their character inside.  We are working to reduce at-risk behaviors such as substance abuse, eating disorders, teen pregnancy, and poor nutrition.

What if I don’t like to run?

We use the term “running” loosely – girls can run, hop, skip, speed walk or dance towards their goals.  The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth; and cooperation instead of rivalry.

  • Our goals for each girl are to:
  • Understand her place in the community.
  • Have strong sense of identity.
  • Learn how to give and receive support in a group.
  • Learn to stand up for herself in a healthy manner.
  • Have an improved body image.
  • Complete a 5K run/walk event in the community.

Online registration starts February 8.

Practices are on Mon/Wed from 3:30-5pm.  The fee is $170.00 per girl and the program will start the week of March 7th and run through the week of May 16th.

Girls on the Run 5K is on May 21st at Cherry Creek Reservoir.
