  • Music Field Trip

    Dear All,

         We have exciting news, Mr. Wiens has been able to obtain a grant for a Field Trip.  The grant will allow us to take 5th through 8th grade students and all of our Homeschool students on a special field trip. The field trip is scheduled for Friday, December 12, 2014. The cost of the field trip is $10.00 per student, (otherwise without the grant) cost would be about $15.00 per student. 

         The students will be going to the Pace Center in Parker, Colorado to see the play "A Christmas Carol."  The students will travel by bus, which will pick up Legacy Academy students at Legacy and Legacy Academy Homeschool students at Creekside, promptly at 9:00am.  Students will return at approximately 12:15pm.  Legacy Academy students 5th through 8th will eat lunch at 12:45pm and (if desired) will order hot lunch in the morning.  Homeschool students will eat upon returning to school. 

    Unfortunately, this field trip does not allow for parental chaperones, teachers will accompany the students.  If you are able to pay online using our PayPal, please use the link below and submit by December 1st. If you cannot pay online, please print off the attached permission slip and send an envelope with cash or check in the amount of $10.00 with your student to give to their first hour teacher or Mrs. Klein with the homeschool program.


    Thank you,

    Legacy Academy

  • Compassion Project

    Boxes/items must be turned in by November 21. 

    Brought to you by the Legacy Academy 8th Graders

    "Every shoebox offers an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with a hurting child," says Franklin Graham President, of Samaritan's Purse. 

    As an 8th grade class, we believe that compassion is an important trait for Legacy Academy to practice. Compassion for the 8th graders means giving to others without expecting a prize or reward in return. We ask that students make as many boxes as they like for a child their age, boy or girl. We also ask that with each box made, you give seven dollars for shipping. Samaritan's Purse suggests packing a central item in the box that a child can cherish such as a doll or a stuffed animal. Please DO NOT include: liquid items, chocolate or food, medications, glass items, aerosol cans, sharp objects, used or damaged items, military figures, knives, and toy guns. Boxes/items must be turned in by November 21. 

    "Whoever receives one little child like this in My Name receives Me." 

    ~Matthew 18:5, NKJV

    Thanks for your help!

    -Sarah Marks & Temma Monroe,  Legacy Academy 8th Graders

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!
