Spring Fling is right around the corner!  Tickets are $20, purchase them online on our website.  Proceeds from the event go towards parking lot improvements! Our fundraising goal is $10,000 this year.  Please keep checking our Facebook page to see all the great items up for auction.  We still need donations of jars to use for decorations.  Mason Jars/ spaghetti jars/ pickle jars… we’ll take them.  Jars are collected in classes through April 3.  The class who collects the most jars will win a popcorn party! If you are willing to help on the night of the event, please contact Amanda Ferguson at amanda.ferguson@legacyk8.org. 

Spring Photo’s will take place Friday, April 24, 2015. This is a dress of choice, but please do not dress your child in green because they will use a green screen during this photo shoot.  No props are allowed this year.  Students do not order these pictures in advance.  The company sends home a flyer with a snap shot of your student, after the photo shoot.

1. Attention Parents:  We need your JARS! 

Legacy needs approximately 225 jars (with lids) to use in decorating for our Spring Fling Fundraiser. Please consider saving and donating your jars to help us drastically reduce our decorating budget.  

We are accepting donations of canning jars, spaghetti jars, jelly/jam jars, olive and pickle jars, iced coffee jars/bottles, and clear soda bottles. If they have a unique size or shape, we’d love to have them! Jars will be collected in homeroom classes. The class with the most jars by APRIL 3  will win a POPCORN PARTY!

Please wash jars before donating. If they have a label (such as on spaghetti jars), we can take care of removing those. THANK YOU!

2. Spring Fling Tickets ON SALE NOW! Our Spring Fling Boot Scootin' BBQ will be on April 18 from 5:00-10:00pm at the Elbert County Fairgrounds Ag Building.  All proceeds from the event go towards parking lot improvements for our school!  Tickets are $20 and are available online.  Please see our website to purchase tickets.
