We have our testing window coming up next week and we ask that children get to bed early, eat a great healthy breakfast, and are on time. This month our core virtue is perseverance. Remember, the lunch program now sells ice cream for $1.00 cash on Fridays.

Hello to all Parents and Staff of Legacy Academy,
The time is fast approaching when you will be called upon to elect a new director to the Legacy Academy Board. There are two open seats this year and each seat is for a three year term.
As per the Legacy Academy Bylaws,
The Institute shall have an Operating Council consisting of five members, four (4) of whom are parents; 1 community member at large, who may or may not be a parent. The parent positions must be filled by parents of students currently attending the Institute and may not be filled by teachers or any paid employee.
At the option of the Board, one (1) parent position may be allocated to an additional community member at large, who may or may not be a parent. This re-allocation of the parent position will be temporary and may be rescinded at any time by the action of the Board. Only one (1) parent per family may serve on the Board at a time.
We are asking anyone interested in running for the board to submit a one page biography. In that biography, we would like you to
address the following questions:
• Family Background – please give a brief description of your family background, occupation and interests.
• Education Philosophy – please describe your educational philosophy and how you see it fulfilling the vision of Legacy Academy.
• Mission Statement Interpretation – please describe your interpretation of Legacy Academy’s Mission Statement and how you
envision a board member’s responsibility for implementing it.
• Commitment to Legacy Academy – please describe your understanding and commitment to Legacy Academy.
• All submissions are due by Wednesday, April 8th and should be submitted to Jessicca Marks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your participation in the school lunch program. Here is some information about the most asked questions I receive.
Nutrition: All the food served in the school lunch program meets arduous nutritional standards mandated by The Healthy, Hungry Free Kids Act of 2010. We are in full compliance, and have been certified by the Colorado Department of Education.
If any particular nutritional information is needed please call Susan Stevens, Food Service Director 303-646-1850.
Lunch Accounts: Each student has a lunch account. Parents may send cash or checks, (Payable to Elizabeth Food Service), for deposit in their student’s account. We also have an online payment system: www.payforit.net Parents can set this account up, using their student’s school ID#. Monies are immediately applied which helps ensure your child always has lunch money.
Notices for low balance, and negative lunch accounts will be sent home in the Monday folder.
Salad Bar: Our salad bar is prepared fresh daily and has a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Students may have seconds on the salad bar free of charge. (At times some fruits are not available due to the volatility of the produce market.)
Second Lunch: If a student wants a second lunch entrée it must be ordered during the morning lunch count. It costs $1.00 to purchase a second entrée.
Milk: A choice of 1% white milk or non-fat chocolate milk is included in the price of the lunch meal. Students who bring their lunch may purchase milk for .50 cents.
Menu: Our menus and the link for our online lunch account payment system, www.payforit.net , will soon be available through Mail Champ.
Friday Ice Cream: We are starting up ice cream Fridays on February 20th. Students may purchase ice cream for $1.00 after lunch is served.
Please call if you have any questions.

Come experience the wonder and beauty of the universe on Wednesday, February 25 at Legacy Academy. The grand opening of the school's observatory will feature several telescopes tracking a variety of celestial objects including the First Quarter Moon Phase. Seeing the universe through a telescope makes it come alive and is fun for all ages! This exciting event is free of charge and 8th graders will be selling hot chocolate and concessions as well as accepting donations to raise money for their class trip to Washington DC in May. We hope to see you at this exciting event!
Tickets are available for two times so that we can accommodate a larger number of participants. The first group will have access to telescopes & the observatory from 6-7pm. The second group will run from 7pm-8pm.
Depending on weather: We may need to reschedule for Tuesday, Feb 24th or Thursday Feb 26th.
