As many of you have heard Legacy 8th graders have a wonderful opportunity to travel to DC and NYC in May.  Not only is this the trip of a lifetime, the students back up knowledge they gain in class, meet other students and participate in wonderful workshops.  We are having a parent meeting for all 8th grade parents on Tuesday, September 9 at 6:00 in Mr. Parish's room.  A representative from the Close Up organization will be there to answer questions about the role of Close Up and what the students can expect.  Please email matt.parish@legacyk8.org with any questions!

Updates for the Week of August 25th

We hope everyone had a great first week of school. We want to let everyone know that we really appreciate all of your patience and understanding while your new PTO Board gets organized. It was great to meet many of you during Back to School Night and Tears & Cheers. Thank you to all of the volunteers that have been helping us these first few weeks of school.

We have been filling past PE uniform orders. We are hoping to have all past orders for P E uniforms filled by the end of the week. If you have ordered a Middle School Wildcat sweatshirt, those will be ordered the week of September 1st.  Your Middle Schooler can have either their first or last name on the back of sweatshirt for an additional $5.00 charge. Please turn in your orders by Thursday, August 28th with payment. Please indicate on your order form if you want a youth size or adult size and include contact information for the parent placing the order. Order forms can be found on the school’s website in the PTO area. We will send out notification re: any updates.

September 2nd: First General PTO Meeting at 6:30 pm in the cafeteria. Childcare will be provided free of charge. We are looking forward to meeting many new Legacy Families. We have several people interested in our open board position, coordinator positions, and/or chair positions. If you too are interested, send a short bio to us at pto@legacyk8.org .

Have a Great Week,

Character Building at Legacy

posted Aug 25, 2014, 8:23 AM by Jessicca Marks

This school year, Legacy Academy is focusing on building character. School-wide the students are asked to R.O.A.R. This means students are asked to be Respectful, On Task, Appropriate and Responsible. Students who show R.O.A.R behaviors are awarded a R.O.A.R Award. Ten names of students who earned R.O.A.R awards are drawn every month, and those students will have ice cream with Mr. Naber. 

In addition to R.O.A.R awards we are teaching our students about Character Traits.  The Character Trait schedule is as follows:

Respect/Responsibility-August/September 
Honesty- October 
Compassion- November 
Humility- December 
Integrity- January 
Courage- February 
Perseverance- March 
Courtesy - April 
Cooperation- May 

Legacy defines respect as: acting in a way that shows you care about someone, their feelings, and well being. You can have respect for others and yourself. Examples of this are: listening to others, taking care of your and others' belongings, being kind and courteous to others, which includes not bullying or gossiping. You can model these behaviors at home and reinforce what has been taught by discussing it with your students. 

Legacy defines responsibility as: you can be counted on, because you always do what you are expected to do. Examples of responsibility are:  following directions immediately, always bringing homework and materials, having iPads fully charged, doing what is expected of you. You can help by teaching and reinforcing  these responsibilities at home. Maybe you feel that your student is ready for a new responsibility. Now is the perfect time to introduce that and build on our character traits! 

One student per class will be chosen each month for demonstrating our character traits. They will be recognized at our monthly assembly, receive a prize and be pictured on our R.O.A.R bulletin board. Perfect attendance, without tardies, will also be rewarded with a free dress of choice day on the next school day after the assembly. 

The Character Education Team is seeking donations for R.O.A.R assembly prizes. These could include gift certificates, toys, coupons etc. If you are interested in donating, please send prizes to the office labeled "Character Ed." If you are have questions about donations please direct them to Ashley Cook via email ashley.cook@legacyk8.org. Like any other donations please turn in receipts to receive credit for volunteer hours.

Vision and Hearing Testing

posted Aug 22, 2014, 1:22 PM by Jessicca Marks

We will have Vision and Hearing testing Wednesday through Friday, October 8 - 10. We will need 7-10 volunteers on the 8th and the 10th to help us get all of this testing completed. You will receive double volunteer hours for the time volunteered. We will start at 8:00 am and end around 2:30 pm. We will have a half an hour for lunch each day. PTO will provide lunch on Wednesday, October 8, 2014. If you are interested in helping, please either call the front office and leave a message for me or you can email me at Renee.stubbings@legacyk8.org. We really could use the parents who have helped in the past, but we will train you. So, please do not feel like you cannot do this. If you have a career in the medical field we can use you in several different areas!

Thanks so much! ~Renee Stubbings, RN

The notice for our parent meeting was inadvertently left out of your First Day instructions for last Monday, August 18th. Please accept our apologies for this oversight! We know that some of our parents would like to see the presentation on our Outdoor Education adventure for 6th grade. We would like to offer another presentation for our parents on Wednesday, August 27th, at 5:30 p.m. in the Science lab Room 119. The presentation and question and answer session usually lasts 30-40 minutes. If you are unable to attend this meeting, please do not hesitate to call me at 303-646-2636. Sixth Grade is a crucial transition year, and we feel this event is extremely important for your student. 

All the best,

Stacy Millet, Middle School Science Teacher
