Geography Field Trip-Tuesday
On Tuesday, May 9th, Mr. Ward’s Geography class will take a field trip to the Museum of the Red River in Idabel, OK (www.museumoftheredriver.org). They have been studying Central and South America and this museum hosts a collection of items from these locations. They plan to leave around 11 am and return by around 3 pm.
Water Day--Friday, May 12
The students have worked hard all year. Now it is time to play hard! Water Day will be Friday, May 12. Please send your child with water shoes, sunscreen, a towel, and a change of clothes. They will receive their Water Day t-shirt on Thursday, to be worn Friday with uniform shorts, pants, or skirts with appropriate leg coverings. Click here to pay for your student's Water Day shirt. No need to choose a size, they have already been preordered. We are seeking volunteers to help with setting up that morning, running the games, serving lunch, and cleaning up. If you are able to donate water bottles, we would greatly appreciate it. We will also need the grass mowed and the ant hills sprayed before Friday! Contact April.Teague@legacymail.org or call the front office if you are able to help and please join us for a fun day in the sun!
Senior Day--Wednesday May 17th
Wednesday, May 17 is Senior Day! The Class of 2023's final day of school will be a whole day designed to celebrate them. Seniors will visit classes during their last week and on their last day they will walk the hall in their caps and gowns, deliver the Senior Assembly at 1pm, have a reception, and share memories with other students.
Honor & Awards--Thursday, May 18th
Honor & Awards Ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 18 in the LA Auditorium. At the end of another successful school year, we want to take an evening to reflect on the past year and to honor that which is worthy of honor. "Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things" (Philippians 4:8).
As well as academic success, Honor & Awards Ceremony will include our Kindergarten graduation and will celebrate character, effort and diligence, athletic achievement and hard work, and will culminate with the presentation of the Legacy Honor Award.
All students are required to attend. Students should wear their formal uniforms.
Family, friends, and members of the public are welcome!
Commencement--Thursday, May 25
Commencement 2023 is happening on Thursday, May 25. We ask that the entire school body, families, and friends celebrate with our graduates by attending Commencement.
As part of Legacy's commitment to excellence and to continual growth and development, we have created some parent surveys that we would ask you to complete. Answering this survey is also helpful in our ongoing accreditation process. Please thoughtfully consider and answer these questions. There are no right or wrong answers. This is simply a tool to give us a clear understanding of how we can improve as a school. Please complete one parent survey per family. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Fisk at firstname.lastname@example.org
