College Visits -- ORU, Tulsa Thursday/Friday 3/7-8


Our visit to ORU is this week! Students will leave after lunch on Thursday. Eat out together on Thursday night and visit campus Friday. We will be back around 6pm Friday.


Over the last couple of years, we've been intentionally visiting Christian colleges and universities with our older students. We've visited Ouachita Baptist University and Oklahoma Baptist University. Up next is Oral Roberts University in Tulsa. John Brown University is the next visit to follow thereafter, and others are being mapped out for next fall. Each of these visits is a good opportunity for students to be exposed to Christian education at the university level. Certainly, a student may find where they are supposed to go to college, if that is in God's design for their lives, but might also be that one class visited, one statement made, or one group conversation is the one that brings some clarity of sense of direction to them for this critical time of decision making in their lives.


Additional details will be sent home this week. If you have questions contact Mrs. Nix or Mrs. Garner. Thank you! Rhetoric students, please get your permission slip submitted!


Saturday School -- Saturday, March 9

Mandatory Saturday school for students with past-due assignments: March 9th from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. Lunch will not be provided. Students should bring a sack lunch. Parents will be notified of students who must attend.


Carnival of Cultures -- Friday, March 15

On Friday, March 15th from 2:15-3:00 pm, students will engage in a Carnival of Cultures, both presenting and experiencing a taste of the lives of others around the world. Please watch for parent memos from teachers requesting your help!


First Track Meet -- Success for Warriors!

The track season commenced on Saturday with Legacy Academy hosting our first-ever Warrior Invitational at Acorn High School. The small invitational was a nice way for us to ease into learning about hosting a track meet and a nice warm-up for our athletes to prepare for the season.


Legacy Warrior athletes shone brightly, clinching an impressive tally of 16 gold medals along with numerous silver and bronze medals. Their collaborative spirit was evident as they supported and motivated each other, showcasing true teamwork on the track. The athletes represented Christ and Legacy Academy well as they kicked off the 2024 track and field season. Our next chance for completion is scheduled for March 14 in Gurdon.



Time to Re-Enroll

It is time to complete your students’ application to re-enroll for the 2024-2025 school year.


Paper applications were sent home with students on Friday, March 1st, or you can complete it online HERE. You may fill out one application per family, just be sure to include the name of every student that you would like to be considered for enrollment for the 2024-25 school year.


Campus Progress Zone: New Fence & Gates

The new fencing and gates are being installed! Once these are complete and installed, the school drive will be one-way only. You will only be able to enter at the Western entrance and must exit beside the daycare or at the dirt road (Friday Lane) after pickup.




Solar Eclipse -- April 8th

On Monday, April 8, part of Arkansas will experience a total solar eclipse. Our school is in the path of totality so we are aiming to have a normal school morning and then do fun activities and watch the eclipse in the afternoon.  Parents and families are invited to join us for the event, too. Keep an eye out for more details coming soon!
