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.

Date Extended for Food Drive

We are having a food drive for the Elizabeth Food Bank beginning November 1st and ending November 15th November 16th. We are so excited to see our students open up their hearts to help others less fortunate by encouraging them to bring in canned food items, cereal, and toiletries. The classroom who brings in the most wins a pizza party! We haven’t had many items donated. Let’s help our residents in Elbert County who are in need.
