Letter from the Board

Dear Legacy Families,

The Legacy Academy Board of Directors (LABOD) would like to thank you for your participation in our Back to School Carnival, and this year’s Back to School Night. With your support, we were able to raise $5,424.80 for the school, which will be used to upgrade some of our Audio/Visual Components in the large meeting rooms in the building. In addition, we received $2,600 in donations from Walmart and Stayin’ Fit & Lovin’ It. Thank you!!

The LABOD has chosen to keep our main fundraising efforts focused on family and community events that build stronger connections within our school. The board’s only fundraiser events are Nerf Night and The Community Carnival. When you participate in these events the school is able to build much-needed funds for projects or purchases that we feel will best support the educational needs of our students.

Nerf Night events will be starting again on September 15th. These events run from 6-8pm, and we welcome participation from Legacy’s families as well as any students/families in our community who wish to join the fun. Please be on the lookout for more information in the Legacy Ledger, and Legacy’s Facebook page for the September event as well as future Nerf Nights.

As a parent of a Legacy student, we have each agreed to support our school by giving 40 hours of volunteer service to the school. The success of these fundraisers relies heavily on your volunteer participation. Please consider getting involved, and completing some of your volunteer time, by signing up to help us with one of our upcoming events.

  • 2017/2018 Nerf Nights: Sept 15, Oct 27, Nov 10, Feb 9, Mar 9, Apr 6, May 4
  • Join us to help at Nerf Night by signing up here: Volunteers Needed

The support for Carnival and Nerf Nights from our school community has allowed the school to:

  • Update our athletic uniforms
  • Make significant safety/security improvements throughout the building
  • Purchase new curriculum resources
  • Provide iPad App subscriptions
  • Upgrade classroom furniture and lockers in several areas of the school
  • Complete several facilities maintenance projects

The revenue generated from just these two fundraisers last year totaled $19,762.56. This is a huge help in providing needed funds for our school, and with your continued help and support, we hope to enable the school to move forward with more needed projects during the 2017/2018 school year.

Thank you for choosing Legacy Academy, and for your continued support. We look forward to a great school year!

Sincerely,

The Legacy Academy Board of Directors
