November E Blast

We are so thankful for a great community of students, parents, teachers, staff, and administration who are all focused on children and their success in school. Thank you so much for trusting your children to our care. It is a privilege and honor to participate in shaping our future leaders through great character and academic strength.

The character attribute for November is compassion.

Student Health

Thank you to all who volunteered and helped make our hearing and vision screening a success.

This is the time of year when many treats are brought into the school. If your student has diet restrictions please provide an alternative snack to the classroom teacher, we don’t want anyone left out!

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.

If you are “booked” up during Book Fair week (or just want to keep shopping) be sure to visit the fair online. Check out the Book Fair link at Legacy Academy Bookfair. Online shopping starts Wednesday, November 21st and stays open until Tuesday, December 4th. The online fair allows your child to send wish lists, invite family and friends to participate in the Fair and offers an expanded book selection. All orders taken online will be shipped free to Legacy and delivered to your students’ classroom. Teachers will be invited to a “Sneak Peek” of the fair on November 27th thru November 29th to make out their classroom wish list, there will be a cart with their selections on it. If you purchase a book for the classroom you are able to count your purchase towards your volunteer time, every ten dollars spent counts as one hour. So when you visit, please make sure to check out the cart of their selected books. Students will also be previewing the fair to fill out their own wish list. The location of the fair will be in the Gymnasium. Below is a class schedule that will clarify when grandparents/significant family member or friend is to have lunch and shop at the fair. There will also be a nice selection of Middle School books for sale.
