Battle of the Books
Two teams from our Lower Level classes competed in the regional Battle of the Books competition last week. Students competed to answer questions about books they had read, and our students - from Mrs. Teague's and Ms. Wright's classes - had a great time preparing and taking part! They did such a great job!
We love to celebrate reading because we know that it is such an important life skill for every single student. Seeing our children learn to read - and to read widely and thoughtfully - is one of the great treasures of a Classical Christian education and one that we will continue to steward.
This week, Ms. Fisk's, Mr. Smallwood's and Mrs. Garner's classes will take their turn at battle! Go, Warriors!
Enrollment for 2022-2023
All students were sent home with Intent to Enroll forms this week. There is also an online version available. If you wish to re-enroll your children at Legacy Academy next year, please complete the form as soon as you are able.
Additionally, one of the ways that we can keep tuition costs down is by harnessing the skills of our families to volunteer in various ways at the school. Part of what we require from all enrolled families is a commitment to volunteer at least 10 hours per year. There are numerous ways that this can be done, so please tell us where you are willing to serve.
Over the summer, there are often a variety of jobs to be done, including mowing the field, and preparing classrooms and making campus upgrades. Maintenance jobs, cleaning, and help with school events are all ways that you can meet this requirement throughout the year, too.
We are always grateful to God for the people He has brought to us - and this does not just end with the students. There have been countless times when parents have stepped in to meet a need to keep things running smoothly, and we are blessed to be able to partner with you to advance the journey and growth of our school, as the Lord leads us onward.
This is also a great time to share your experience at Legacy Academy with other families! We will work with every family who desires to be here so their children can receive a Christ-centered education.
