What's Happening at Legacy

  • Go Fund Me-Lego Story Starter Kit

    The 2nd-5th grade teachers at Legacy would like to purchase a Lego Story Starter pack, for use in our classrooms. Writing is a difficult subject to teach and engage the students in. It is also a subject that most students struggle with. While we have a strong writing curriculum, we as a school realize this is an area of need and improvement. 

    Our hope is that with the Lego Story Starter pack we will engage the students and motivate them to want to write!  The Lego Story Starter works to do just that! Students are given the opportunity to create something with the Legos that they will then write about. 

    As a small school we have limited funds for resources. Please help us fund this project and improve our writers!

    The students are so excited about the possibility to learn with Legos! Check out our link

    There have been several questions regarding writing checks or using cash. We would appreciate any form of donation! Please make checks payable to Ashley Cook. Write your email in the memo line and she will email you a confirmation of deposit.  

    If you're a Legacy parent needing volunteer hours this counts! $10.00 equals one volunteer hour. Donate here and log your hours on HelpCounter.

    Here are some videos about the project:

  • National School of Choice Next Week

    National School Choice Week provides an unprecedented opportunity, every January, to shine a positive spotlight on the need for effective education options for all children.

    Independently planned by a diverse and growing coalition of individuals, schools, and organizations, National School Choice Week features thousands of unique events and activities across the country. The Week allows participants to advance their own messages of educational opportunity, while uniting with like-minded groups and individuals across the country.

    Participants in National School Choice believe that parents should be empowered to choose the best educational environments for their children. Supporters plan events that highlight a variety of school choice options — from traditional public schools to public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online learning, and homeschooling.

    National School Choice Week is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort. We welcome all Americans to get involved and have their voices heard!

  • After School Art Program
    Dear Parents,

    I am excited for the opportunity to offer Legacy an after-school art program for the 2015 school year.

    I would like to take my 25+ years of experience as a Creative Director, graphic desiger, fine artist, muralist  and teacher and impart what I have learned to the kids. I want the students to see that art and design are in everything we see. I encourage creativity, integrity and selflessness in my classroom.

    We will work with clay, resists, batiks, drawing, painting, pastels, carvings, ink and more.

    Schedule:
    Tuesdays 4:00-5:30 in the Art Room at Legacy. Grades 4-12, starting January 27.

    Program Fee:
    $200 per student for 8 weeks ($25 per class), that includes all art supplies. Discounts for parents with multiple students. Class space is limited to 15 students.

    Please make checks payable to Richard Marks, and drop off at Legacy to sign up for this program. Also, feel free to contact me with any questions at 303-648-3683.
