Holiday Gift Fund

We are now in the Holiday Season. We hope that Everyone has a Happy, Healthy Holiday Season. The PTCO would like to spread some cheer to the Legacy Academy Staff as well. Since we have been receiving such wonderful responses by using sign-up genius we decided to try it to collect donations for the Holiday Gift Fund instead of making requests during carpool.

Please go to the Link for more details and to sign up for any of the Volunteer Opportunities that are currently available.

January E Blast

Dear Legacy Academy Family,

We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas break! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  We are all looking forward to the second half of our school year. Your children are the best part of our day.

In honor of the holidays, please know that our administration, faculty, and staff might not respond to e-mails from Friday, December 21, 2017, through Sunday, January 7, 2018.  Thank you for your understanding. 

8th Grade Class Trip
The Legacy 8th graders are going on a trip to Washington DC, Philadelphia, and New York City in April. They are hosting a dinner/auction on February 10 to raise funds for this awesome trip and they need your help! Anything you donate will go towards your volunteer hours, so be sure to record it on your volunteer portal or at the school office. Non-food items can be delivered to the office anytime up to Wednesday, February 7th. Food needs to be delivered to the school between 12:30pm and 5:30pm the day of the event (unless non-perishable or otherwise noted). Cash donations are welcomed too ($10 equals 1 volunteer hour) and can be turned into the office up to Friday, February 9thVolunteer Here
You can also buy tickets to attend the dinner! They are available for a donation of $15 or more per ticket and ticket will be made available during carpool, at the office, or from any 8th grader selling them. Babysitting is even available that evening so perhaps this could be a date night!
Chipotle Fundraising Event-Make dinner a selfless act by joining us for a fundraiser to support Legacy Academy. Come into the Chipotle at 5642 Allen Way Space 104 in Castle Rock on Wednesday, December 27th between 4:00pm and 8:00pm. Bring in this Chipotle flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Legacy Academy.
WATCH D.O.G.S Event
Attention all fathers and father-figures of Legacy students, on January 11th from 7:15 – 7:45 am we will have ‘Donuts for Dad’ Event at our school.  If you can’ t come that day, we will have ‘Hotdogs with Dad” on January 25th 2:45 to 3:45 pm. We will have information about our WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) Program and you’ll have the opportunity to sign up!  WATCH D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. The goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and provide an extra set of eyes and ears. ‘Dads, granddads, uncles, step-dads and adult brothers . . . this is your chance to have some special time with your student in a fun atmosphere at the school. Interested in signing up to be a Watch D.O.G. now?  Email watchdogs@legacyk8.org. Please RSVP by January 8th.
