October E-Blast

Dear Parents,

We hope everyone is off to a great start.  The children are amazing.  It is such a great honor to impact your children through education and character development.  A big “Thank You” to all of you who helped make our Patriot Observation a great success. We believe the students are learning the important lesson of honoring those who care for us in our community as well as the privilege to live in America every day.

Spring 2017 Student Performance Reports
The Spring 2017 Student Performance Reports for the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) have been delivered to the school.  Teachers will be handing these to parents during conferences October 12th and 13th. If you would like to have the results for your student sooner, you may stop by the front office as they are ready for parents to pick up. Please be aware we cannot hand these to students.
Thank you for entrusting your students to us.

Hearing and Vision Screening
Vision and Hearing screening is scheduled for Friday, October 27th. We can use up to ten volunteers for the day.  We will train you if necessary! If you are interested in volunteering please email renee.stubbings@legacyk8.org

We have leftover yearbooks form the school year 2016-2017 for sale on a first come first serve basis.  The cost is $15.00. Please make checks to Legacy Academy.

Character Development
This school year Legacy Academy is focusing on building character. School-wide the students are asked to R.O.A.R. This means students are asked to be Respectful, On Task, Appropriate and Responsible. Students who show R.O.A.R behaviors are awarded an R.O.A.R Award. Then twelve R.O.A.R awards are drawn every month and those students will have ice cream with the admin team.

In addition to R.O.A.R. awards, we are teaching our students about Character Traits.  The Character Trait for October is Honesty.
