Senior Photos & Retakes -- Thursday, March 14

Picture retakes and senior portraits are March 14th! Any student who was absent on the day of fall pictures will automatically be added to the list for retakes. If your student had their photo taken in the fall but would like to have it redone, please call the office or email Cynthia.Kesterson@legacymail.org. If you preordered and already received prints but would like to have your student’s picture redone, you may return your prints to the photographer on retake day to be exchanged for prints of the retake picture. This applies only to preorders that were placed before proofs were received.


Carnival of Cultures -- Friday, March 15

We invite parents to the Carnival of Culture put on by lower-level geography and upper-level literature classes. The aim will be to provide a comprehensive and enriching reinforcement of classical education by connecting students and subjects across the school. We hope by immersing the students in diverse cultures we can deepen their understanding, foster compassion, and expand their knowledge of both God and the world. This will be during the school day on Friday, March 15th at 2:15pm and parents are invited to drop by and see all the students put together to showcase an international culture inspired by something they're learning in class this year.


Spring Break -- March 18-22
