It’s that time of the year where we begin reflecting on all that we are Thankful for. We here at Legacy Academy are so Thankful for a great community of students, parents, teachers, staff and administration who are all focused on what’s best for children. Thank you so much for trusting your young people to our care. It is a privilege and honor to be a part of shaping the future of our nation with children of great character and academic strength. As we head into the holidays, it is hard to believe how quickly time has flown by! We want to make it a healthy winter for our students, so remember, if your student has had a temperature, has thrown up, or been on antibiotics for less than twenty-four hours, please keep them home.
- We are having a food drive for the Elbert Task Force beginning November 7th and ending November 18th. We are so excited to see our students open up their hearts to help others less fortunate by encouraging them to bring in canned food items, cereal, and toiletries.
- The character attribute for November is honesty.
- We have a new uniform provider for our families: Educational Outfitters http://denver.educationaloutfitters.com/find-my-school/legacy-academy/. Middle School and fifth-grade students will soon be able to wear jeans every Friday as long as they wear a logo shirt from a Legacy Academy sponsored club, sports team or if they purchase a Legacy Academy polo with an embroidered Legacy Academy logo. These can be purchased through Educational Outfitters or your student may get an order form at the office. Jeans may be worn with one of these shirts every Friday throughout the school year, but the shirts MUST be acquired through the Legacy Academy office (from Educational Outfitters).
- Donation of Lost and Found will be December 16, 2016. Any lost and found items that have not been claimed before the end of the day on 12/16/16 will be donated to a charitable organization. Please mark your student’s name on their belongings!
