What's Happening at Legacy

  • Volunteer Need
    We are in need of K-cups or Vue cups for the Keurig in the teachers lounge. Any flavor would be great. For every $10 you spend, you earn 1 hour.

  • 8th Grade Trip Meeting
    As many of you have heard Legacy 8th graders have a wonderful opportunity to travel to DC and NYC in May.  Not only is this the trip of a lifetime, the students back up knowledge they gain in class, meet other students and participate in wonderful workshops.  We are having a parent meeting for all 8th grade parents on Tuesday, September 9 at 6:00 in Mr. Parish's room.  A representative from the Close Up organization will be there to answer questions about the role of Close Up and what the students can expect.  Please email with any questions!

  • Character Building at Legacy
    This school year, Legacy Academy is focusing on building character. School-wide the students are asked to R.O.A.R. This means students are asked to be Respectful, On Task, Appropriate and Responsible. Students who show R.O.A.R behaviors are awarded a R.O.A.R Award. Ten names of students who earned R.O.A.R awards are drawn every month, and those students will have ice cream with Mr. Naber. 

    In addition to R.O.A.R awards we are teaching our students about Character Traits.  The Character Trait schedule is as follows:

    Honesty- October 
    Compassion- November 
    Humility- December 
    Integrity- January 
    Courage- February 
    Perseverance- March 
    Courtesy - April 
    Cooperation- May 

    Legacy defines respect as: acting in a way that shows you care about someone, their feelings, and well being. You can have respect for others and yourself. Examples of this are: listening to others, taking care of your and others' belongings, being kind and courteous to others, which includes not bullying or gossiping. You can model these behaviors at home and reinforce what has been taught by discussing it with your students. 

    Legacy defines responsibility as: you can be counted on, because you always do what you are expected to do. Examples of responsibility are:  following directions immediately, always bringing homework and materials, having iPads fully charged, doing what is expected of you. You can help by teaching and reinforcing  these responsibilities at home. Maybe you feel that your student is ready for a new responsibility. Now is the perfect time to introduce that and build on our character traits! 

    One student per class will be chosen each month for demonstrating our character traits. They will be recognized at our monthly assembly, receive a prize and be pictured on our R.O.A.R bulletin board. Perfect attendance, without tardies, will also be rewarded with a free dress of choice day on the next school day after the assembly. 

    The Character Education Team is seeking donations for R.O.A.R assembly prizes. These could include gift certificates, toys, coupons etc. If you are interested in donating, please send prizes to the office labeled "Character Ed." If you are have questions about donations please direct them to Ashley Cook via email Like any other donations please turn in receipts to receive credit for volunteer hours.

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!
