. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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:
Courtesy - April
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
. Like any other donations please turn in receipts to receive credit for volunteer hours.
Parents and Guardians,

Include your first and last name in the

We will have Vision and Hearing testing Wednesday through Friday, October 8 - 10. We will need 7-10 volunteers on
the 8th and the 10th to help us get all of this testing completed. You will receive double volunteer hours for the time
volunteered. We will start at 8:00 am and end around 2:30 pm. We will have a half an hour for lunch each day. PTO
will provide lunch on Wednesday, October 8, 2014. If you are interested in helping, please either call the front office
and leave a message for me or you can email me at Renee.email@example.com. We really could use the parents
who have helped in the past, but we will train you. So, please do not feel like you cannot do this. If you have a career
in the medical field we can use you in several different areas!
Thanks so much! ~Renee Stubbings, RN
The notice for our parent meeting was inadvertently left out of your First Day instructions for last Monday, August 18th. Please accept our apologies for this oversight! We know that some of our parents would like to see the presentation on our Outdoor Education adventure for 6th grade. We would like to offer another presentation for our parents on Wednesday, August 27th, at 5:30 p.m. in the Science lab Room 119. The presentation and question and answer session usually lasts 30-40 minutes. If you are unable to attend this meeting, please do not hesitate to call me at 303-646-2636. Sixth Grade is a crucial transition year, and we feel this event is extremely important for your student.
All the best,
