LA News - Spring Break Edition

Updated: Mar 24

Spring Follies - Friday, April 1st


Students and teachers are busy getting everything ready for Spring Follies, the funniest night of the year. Students know their parts and should make use of Spring Break to be practicing their parts, and preparing costumes and props for the big day.


The event will be the Friday after Spring Break, April 1st, starting at 6:30pm. All students should be back at the school by 6pm. The concession stand will be open before the show and during the intermission. Parent volunteers will be needed to help!


We will have a full dress rehearsal Wednesday and Friday. All upper level students are required to stay until 4:30 on both days. The rehearsal schedule is attached below. Some upper level skits will stay and practice Monday and Tuesday afternoon after school.


There will be no girls basketball practice on Thursday nor track practice on Friday.

If you have any questions about the event, contact Mrs. Kesterson (cynthia.kesterson@legacymail.org) or Ms. Gallagher (hannah.gallager@legacymail.org).


Spring Formal - Saturday, April 23rd


We are excited to host our first Spring Formal. This special event is for Freshman-Senior students. Please note that the date has changed from Friday, April 22 to Saturday, April 23 on the academic calendar. Festivities will start at 5:30pm and will include dinner at Stilwell’s, photos at the gazebo at the courthouse lawn, and will be followed with festivities and dancing at the new AMP Fitness events room, across the street from Lofton Family Clinic. Tickets are $35 and will be made available for purchase in the front office and online. Parents are welcome to attend with the purchase of a ticket. Parent volunteers will also be needed. If you’d like to help with this event please contact Mrs. Kesterson or Ms. Gallagher.


The ladies’ dress code matches that of Homecoming with the additional option for cocktail-length dresses (must be to the knees). If you have any concerns or exceptions please get with Ms. Gallagher. For the boys, a tuxedo or suit is preferred but not required. Dress pants with a dress shirt and blazer is acceptable. Students' navy scholar blazers may be worn. Adults should follow the same dress code as students for the evening.

Following the Warriors' great success at the first track meet of the season in March, we are really looking forward to the remaining meets of the year.

Spring Time Campus Care

With the sun shining, the grass is growing! We really need families who can help take turns with mowing and weed eating. Please let the office know if you can help.
