This just in:

I would like to send our a heartfelt thanks for awarding the grant of RAZ kids to Legacy Academy. RAZ kids is an interactive reading program that allows all elementary students online access to books at their level. This opens up a world of books for students to explore and read with the goal of challenging all readers but not frustrating them. On the teacher end, RAZ kids allows teachers to hear their students reading books (students record their readings), monitor how much reading is being done at home, what genres are interesting to the students, and anaylyze data based on comprehension quizes to guide instruction at school. Thanks to the PTO's generousity this program has been implemented in all Elementary classrooms and selected students in Middle School. The feedback has been amazing! I have heard comments on how much time this saves families and gives them comfort that their child has acess to books that they can truly read. Teachers have exclaimed how helpful all of the data is helping to concentrait their lessons in specific directions. Again, thank you from all the teachers at Legacy for providing this amazing oopportunity!

PTO granted $600 dollars to support Legacy Academy’s Character Trait program. This program teaches 10 character traits through out the school year and focuses on supporting positive behavior. One of the ways it supports positive behavior is through monthly R.O.A.R. Assemblies. At these assemblies students are recognized and rewarded for displaying the character traits. PTO was able to provide funds to greatly improve this program. With the funds provided the Character Education Team was able to purchase: vinyl signs for the school, t-shirts, styluses and wildcats for students and paper to support the program with. This grant has supported the R.O.A.R. program and excited the students.

Did you know that you can earn money for our school just by shopping on Amazon?
Just use smile.amazon.com and set up Legacy Academy as your donation of choice. Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase amount (for most items) to Legacy and you don't pay a penny extra. 

Do you shop at the same retailers over and over? Or do you give gift certificates to your loved ones?
Shop for your gift certificates at Scrips and they donate a percentage to our school, with no additional cost to you. Check if your retailer has the gift card you need at ShopwithScrip.com. “First Time Purchasers", please contact us at ptco@legacyk8.org for our enrollment code

Some cards are re-loadable. There are bonus purchase times where they give higher percentages, and new retailers all the time so check back often. Back To School Bonus time has started.

Save your Box Tops, Labels for Education, Campbell Soup Labels, and Coke Bottle Tops.
We take care of sorting and processing them, just send them to school with your child to be collected.
