Legacy Academy News
All of us here at Legacy are so thankful for your children. We love the opportunity that you have given us to teach them. We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
The PTO is collecting donations for our entire staff at Legacy for the holidays. We have a wrapped box at the office for your envelope with donations, or starting December 1st, our para staff will be available to take them during carpool, through Friday the 5th. You can even count it toward your hours if you’d like. $10=1 hour! Please help us thank them all for all they do here at Legacy!
Boxes/items must be turned in by November 21.

"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!

Dear Parents, It has been a cold start to winter. Please make sure to send your children with cold weather gear. We do have outdoor recess when the temperature is as low as 22 degrees.
Attached is the most recent PTO Update. We would like to remind you of the Christmas fund for the staff. During the holidays it is hard to show everyone who helps teach, grow and build our kids throughout the year our deep appreciation. So the PTO has come up with a GREAT idea to show all of the staff members how much we appreciate them. The PTO is wanting to purchase gift cards for each staff member at Legacy Academy. We would love your support in this project. How can you help? Great question.We are putting a beautifully wrapped box at the front desk. You can put your donation in this box. The donations will go towards showing our gratitude to the office staff, maintenance staff, teaching staff, specials staff, and security staff. This was a great success last year, please help us make it another great success this year and show the staff that the parents think they are awesome! This project is not to take place of the wonderful gifts parents give each year to their kids special teacher. It is an idea the PTO has come up with to make sure none of our AWESOME staff gets over looked this holiday season.
If you have any questions please email the PTO.
It's a great time to use your grocery cards from the Elizabeth Education Foundation. The average price of Thanksgiving dinner is $49.48 per family. By using your grocery card $2.46 would be donated back to the EEF for the teacher grant program. If every family enrolled in our district used the card for Thanksgiving dinner alone, over $2700.00 would be available to our teachers in the form of grants. Need a card? Visit us online at www.elizabethef.org.
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.
