From the Founder
Prayer is important. We cannot underestimate the critical role it plays in the relationship between a God and a devoted follower of Christ. Through prayer, we make our petitions to God known--demonstrating our reliance upon Him and not ourselves. Through prayer, we submit to Him, the ultimate, supreme power, our concerns and cares for others. Through prayer, we come to the end of ourselves and our striving. We put ourselves in agreement with God and decree His will into our lives and situations. Through prayer we talk and communion with our Father, friend, and redeemer.
As a staff, we are constantly praying for our students and their families. We know that God can do in their hearts what we cannot do. He knows what they need better than we ever could. This weekend we were thankful to get to pray for Rose Dean as she had a double lung transplant in Dallas. The surgery has been reported as a success but the time following it are critical times. Let us continue to pray for Rose and let us each pray for one another and for the mission and success of Legacy Academy in serving the Lord!

Oratory Program -- 11/2 @ 6pm
Our Oratory Program is happening on Thursday, November 2. This is a great night as our upper-level students perform speeches, poems, readings, and scriptures from historical events, the literature they are studying, and much more. All students are expecting to attend and should wear their formal uniform.
Picture Day -- November 9th
Picture Day is coming! Picture day is on November 9th. Because this falls on a Thursday, upper-level students should be in formal uniform. Lower-level students are certainly permitted to wear formal uniforms if parents would prefer, but it is not required.
Order forms will be sent home this week. Please send them back to school with your student on picture day. Students need to give their forms directly to the photographer so please do not send them in early or turn them in to the office. Pictures can also be ordered ahead of time through Lifetouch HERE. Ordering online is fast and easy! You can view your students' proofs before your order is printed and customize your order.

We are excited to get our PeeWee basketball program rolling! You can register your athlete online.

Ball in the 'Burg
Congratulations to the Lady Warriors on winning the Ball in the Burg Invitational 2023!
Cross Country State Champions!
On Thursday, our inaugural Cross Country teams embarked on a journey to Siloam Springs in preparation for the HCAA State meet on Friday morning at the John Brown University XC trail. Congratulations to all our athletes and to Coach Webb on an excellent season! Congratulations to our seven medalists, and to the Junior Girls and Junior Boys teams for their team championship victories!
Maddie Lowery represented Legacy admirably in the Senior Girls race, managing to secure 5th place in the 1A/2A division. She has truly become a leader for the younger girls, and we will miss her presence on the team next year. For the Senior Boys were James Bartek, Gabe Cox, and Cameron Oge, as Everrette Martz was unfortunately out sick. James achieved a new personal record, while the other two boys came incredibly close to setting their own PRs on a demanding course.
The Junior Girls team - Libbie Bartek, Jocelyn Cisneros, Vivian Garner, Reagan Oge, and A’Niyah Pryor - showcased the heart and dedication that we strive to instill in our students. The team brought home the HCAA 1A/2A State Championship title along with two individual medals - Libbie in 2nd place; A’Niyah in 7th place. A’Niyah demonstrated incredible determination by passing five girls in the final sprint to the finish line, making a significant contribution to her team's score! Representing Legacy's Junior Boys team were Justise Burton, Jude Gallagher, Silas Lofton, Chris Real, Lane Thornton, Manny Toledano, and Rowan Weber. Justise led the team by achieving an impressive 7th place overall and 2nd place in the 1A/2A division. Jude and Silas engaged in a thrilling race, pushing each other all the way to the finish line and overtaking three athletes together in the final sprint. Jude earned 5th place, with Silas behind in 6th place. Rowan also secured 9th place, ensuring the Junior Boys brought home the 1A/2A HCAA State Championship title!
Basketball season is upon us and it is a busy time for coaches, players, and parents. Please know that it is our intention to try and schedule most away games, especially longer road trips on Friday nights, as much as possible and we will always aim to start as early as possible. This year we are not playing 4 games any night. However, working with other teams, the schedule is less than desirable at times.
Please note that it is important for student-athletes to stay caught up on their school work–keeping homework done from other nights, and staying off the past due list. Learning to manage various responsibilities is one benefit athletic participation can produce in them.
Please remind your athlete that students must be in attendance on the day of an after-school extracurricular event in order to participate in that event. Unless permission is granted from the administration for an excused absence that is unavoidable, an athlete will not be allowed to play in a game on the evening of an absence.
Attending school the following day after an athletic event is required. Any athlete with an unexcused absence or tardy the day following an athletic event will not be permitted to play in the next game without administrative approval.
