Way to Go EMS Cardinals!

posted by Jessicca Marks   [ updated ]

The EMS Cardinals are currently undefeated!  They have one more game – next Wednesday, which is a home game.  Legacy Academy has one student on the team, Sam Walter, and many past students are on the team. The game starts at 5 p.m. 
 
This is the first time in 5 years that the 7th grade EMS team has won a game, let alone all of their games. Way to go! We are proud of you.

Legacy Parents,

We are so excited to be given the opportunity to rally around one of our own community members, Matt Littrell. Mr. Littrell, a former Marine Infantryman from Elbert County, is riding horseback from Camp Lejeune, NC, to Camp Pendleton, CA. He is raising money for wounded veterans through the Semper Fi Fund. We would like to support Mr Littrell and all wounded veterans by donating to the Semper Fi Fund.  

Donations will be received beginning September 11, thru September 30. Students can bring their donations to their homeroom teachers, and the class that has raised the most money for Mr. Littrell and the Semper Fi Fund will win an ice cream party. The winning class will be announced on October 1. Mr Littrell’s father will be with us to accept the donations. Students can wear their western wear on that day as a dress of choice as well.
