Dear Legacy Academy Family,

We hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas break! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We are all looking forward to the second half of our school year. We are excited to teach your children!

In honor of the holidays, please know that our administration, faculty, and staff might not respond to e-mails from December 16, 2016, through January 2, 2017.  Thank you for your understanding. Mark your calendars now for parent-teacher conferences and registration on Thursday, February 16, 2017, 4:00pm – 8:00pm and February 17, 2017, 8:00am – 12:00pm.

We wanted to let you know that it is important that you return the form in a timely matter as we have a waitlist for many grade levels and continue have growth on the list.

National School of Choice Week Monday, January 23 ~ Friday, January 27

National School Choice Week provides an unprecedented opportunity every January to shine a positive spotlight on the need for effective education options for all children. Independently planned by a diverse and growing coalition of individuals, schools, and organizations, National School Choice Week features thousands of unique events and activities across the country. The week allows participants to advance their own messages of educational opportunity while uniting with like-minded groups and individuals across the country.

Participants in National School Choice believe that parents should be empowered to choose the best educational environments for their children. Supporters plan events that highlight a variety of school choice options — from traditional public schools to public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online learning, and homeschooling. National School Choice Week is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort. We welcome all Americans to get involved and have their voices heard!

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 

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!

Roofers & Construction help

We are looking for help with a roofing project as well as a construction project. The modular classroom (music room & teacher library) needs a new roof, skirting, and wheelchair ramp repair. If you could assist on a team with this type of project, please call Ms. Anne (303)646-2636.

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 legacyk8.org or call the office if you can help!  Thank you.

The character attribute for January is cooperation.
