Dear Parents,
School is just about to begin, hard to believe how summer flies by. We can’t wait to see our families again. We hope you had a fantastic summer. You should receive an introduction e-mail from your student’s teacher by Friday, August 15, 2014. It will explain class location etc. 

We are looking for a group of people who will come to the school on Monday, August 18, 2014 at 8:30 am. We need people who will help build the memorial benches to honor Csaba Gabriel Recke, to put them in the ground and help 
spread wood chips. If you are willing to help please bring work gloves, rakes, shovels. If someone has a front loader, we could really use it. Please e-mail anne.stanley@legacyk8.org if you can volunteer, all volunteer hours are doubled.

Can you help with landscaping? We are in need of help mowing, trimming, and weed spraying with non-toxic weed killer. Please e-mail or call Anne to help anne.stanley@legacyk8.org, 303 646-2636.

Dear Legacy Families,

We are so excited about the new school year. We have many great and new things planned for this year. One of the new ways of communicating to parents is with a program called MailChimp which will gather updates also known as an RSS feed from our website. Parents will receive an email with links to updates on the website. Please make sure to view the updates as there is important information for you concerning the happenings at school.

We are also excited that we have been working on improving the safety procedures at Legacy Academy with the desire of keeping your children safe while they attend school. We have installed a security feature at the front door which will require visitors to press a door buzzer to alert the front desk of your desired entry into the building. We will also be incorporating a new visitor check in system with the help of the Elbert County Sheriff's Department. We will send more information out soon.

Dear 8th Grade Parents,

It is never too early to start thinking about Washington DC in the spring of 2015!  Over the last two years we have partnered with Close Up to provide our students with a trip of a lifetime!  The trip is a chance to explore our nation’s capital along with 100 other 8th graders and participate in wonderful tours and activities.  All the Legacy students who have gone would highly recommend it to their underclassmen.  We already have students signed up making payments, so if you are interested email matt.parish@legacyk8.org.  You can check out www.closeup.org for more information and plan on attending the parent meeting in the first couple weeks of school.  We would love to have every 8th grader at least contemplate the option of going!
