May E-Blast

Dear All,

Just a friendly reminder about the uniform policy changes for the 2016/2017 school year. The following items have been removed from the school dress code policy:

    • Plaid to include jumpers, skirts or skorts
    • Green and yellow polo shirts
    • Yellow peter pan blouses. 

We have added heather grey as a polo shirt option. 

The girls may still wear solid blue, khaki jumpers, skirts and skorts.  Boys may wear white and light blue oxford dress shirts.  Girls can choose to wear white and light blue peter pan blouses. The colors for polos long or shirt sleeve are limited to: 

    • heather grey
    • red
    • navy
    • royal blue

Light blue polo’s are not an approved item.

We have no restrictions regarding where you purchase your student’s uniform items as long as they are in compliance with the dress code policy.  Elizabeth Walmart will carry our items and usually have them in stock by the end of July, however be aware of your choices as they do stock non-approved items as well.  French Toast, an online service, also carries our items and will allow you to put in our source code to pull up Legacy Academy’s approved items.  source code:  QS5JCKC

Roller skate shoes are not allowed at school. Please do not allow your student(s) to bring these to school.

Volunteer Opportunity: 
  • Summer Mowing & Trimming.  We are putting together a team for summer lawn care. We will need to mow and trim the property at least three times over the summer.
  • We are looking for families to help with our annual ‘thank you’ treat for the school district transportation department, the Elizabeth Fire & Rescue, and The Elbert County Sheriff’s Department.  Your time and donations will count towards your volunteer time.  Please request more information from our office. We plan to deliver these items on Friday, May 6, 2016.
  • We are also looking for volunteers to help with our graduations on Friday, May 13th (Kindergarten at 5:30pm), Monday, May 16th (Eighth Grade at 6:00pm).
  • We need volunteers to help with Field Day on May 18th. Please email maggie.chamberlain@legacyk8.org if you can help with Survivor Island.
  • We still have Legacy Academy yard signs that need to be displayed throughout our community!  Do you have a corner lot or a highly visible location where you would be willing to advertise our school with a yard sign?  We are looking for people who will place a sign in their yard for a three month period, you will receive three hours of volunteer time. Please e-mail information at info@legacyk8.org or call the office if you can help! Thank you.
