    We have our testing window coming up next week and we ask that children get to bed early, eat a great healthy breakfast, and are on time. This month our core virtue is perseverance. Remember, the lunch program now sells ice cream for $1.00 cash on Fridays.

  • Board Elections-April 20th

    Hello to all Parents and Staff of Legacy Academy,

    The time is fast approaching when you will be called upon to elect a new director to the Legacy Academy Board. There are two open seats this year and each seat is for a three year term.

    As per the Legacy Academy Bylaws,

    The Institute shall have an Operating Council consisting of five members, four (4) of whom are parents; 1 community member at large, who may or may not be a parent. The parent positions must be filled by parents of students currently attending the Institute and may not be filled by teachers or any paid employee.

    At the option of the Board, one (1) parent position may be allocated to an additional community member at large, who may or may not be a parent. This re-allocation of the parent position will be temporary and may be rescinded at any time by the action of the Board. Only one (1) parent per family may serve on the Board at a time.

    We are asking anyone interested in running for the board to submit a one page biography. In that biography, we would like you to

    Thank you for your participation in the school lunch program.  Here is some information about the most asked questions I receive.

    Nutrition: All the food served in the school lunch program meets arduous nutritional standards mandated by The Healthy, Hungry Free Kids Act of 2010.  We are in full compliance, and have been certified by the Colorado Department of Education. 

    If any particular nutritional information is needed please call Susan Stevens, Food Service Director 303-646-1850. 

    Lunch Accounts:  Each student has a lunch account. Parents may send cash or checks, (Payable to Elizabeth Food Service), for deposit in their student’s account.  We also have an online payment system: www.payforit.net    Parents can set this account up, using their student’s school ID#.  Monies are immediately applied which helps ensure your child always has lunch money.

    Notices for low balance, and negative lunch accounts will be sent home in the Monday folder.

    Salad Bar:  Our salad bar is prepared fresh daily and has a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Students may have seconds on the salad bar free of charge. (At times some fruits are not available due to the volatility of the produce market.) 

    Second Lunch:  If a student wants a second lunch entrée it must be ordered during the morning lunch count.  It costs $1.00 to purchase a second entrée.

    Milk: A choice of 1% white milk or non-fat chocolate milk is included in the price of the lunch meal.  Students who bring their lunch may purchase milk for .50 cents.

    Menu: Our menus and the link for our online lunch account payment system, www.payforit.net , will soon be available through Mail Champ.

    Friday Ice Cream: We are starting up ice cream Fridays on February 20th.  Students may purchase ice cream for $1.00 after lunch is served.

    Please call if you have any questions.

    Susan Stevens

    Elizabeth School District

    Food Service Director

Teaching Reaction Times with Minecraft

Minecraft Club has come to Legacy Academy.  We are happy to join the many great schools around the world that are using this powerful creative tool to teach a wide variety of topics.  We hope that we will be able to create a fun after school club where students have time to explore and create new worlds, work together, discover science concepts and learn powerful computer skills.  It is a really great time!
