Harvest Cafeteria National School Lunch Week
The Harvest cafeteria ladies dressed up in their Taco costumes on October 4th and made it a fun day for all. They also celebrated Smile Day.
On National School Lunch Week "What is on your Playlist?" was the theme. They had decorations and named the food with names like "Hip Hop Cheese Pizza", "Country Steamed Carrots", "Dancing Grapes", "Jazz Refried Beans", "Rock n Roll Mashed Potatoes", "Disco Mexican Pizza", "Duet Pineapple", " Musical Pudding" and many more for the week. To close out the week we showed the movie "Sing".
The kids loved seeing them dressed up. So much fun for them and the students! Thanks to all of our cafeteria staff. We love you ladies!

We Read “SNOW” Many Books!
With almost 300 Second-Fifth grade students, our 1st 9 weeks Genre Celebration was a big success. Students met the Read Through the Genres Challenge for each grade level to be invited to the celebration. Playing Minute-to-Win-It games and making their own “snowman” from powdered donuts created quite a bit of chaos in the library--but it was worth to hear them say, “That was so much fun!”
Our Amazing Custodians Keep Legacy Clean!
Thanks to Mrs. Trish Vickers, Mr. Marlon Carter, Mr. Willie Gant, and Ms. Denise Brown for keeping Legacy sparkling clean!
Laying Legacy’s Wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
During Fall Break, sixteen of Legacy’s 5th grade students visited Washington D.C. to see our National Monuments, the Capitol, the White House, and so much more. One of their most impressive moments was laying a wreath in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Students Andrew McKnight, Brandon Mixon, Noah Westmoreland, and Cameron Livaudais represented Legacy as they solemnly positioned the wreath.
Animal Trax of Madison visits “Camp Legacy”
Camp Legacy is an opportunity for students who do not participate in Legacy’s Camp McDowell overnight camp to enjoy some of the same types of experiences as their classmates. Animal Trax of Madison, an exotic pet and feed store, brought in some of their exotic animals to share with 5th graders today. Other events are planned throughout the three-day camping trip to McDowel..

Mrs. Shirley Whorton’s FACS students have had a busy nine weeks debating, discussing family units, and nurturing their own “egg” babies.
MCHS really showed up at Special Olympics this year. We had over 120 volunteers representing JROTC, Tiger Pals, Student Council, FCCLA, and NHS. To make the event even more special, some of our students were honored to lead the Pledge of Allegiance, sing the national anthem, and participate in the torch run.
Teachers and administrators from both Madison County Elementary and Central came to recognize our freshmen and celebrate their testing achievements. We are family!
Last week we celebrated Homecoming. Each day was a dress-up day and we had everything from “Red, White, and Blue Day” to “Out of this World Day” and more. It was lots of fun for students and staff.

Supporting Mrs. Bates
MCVA Cheered on our Madison County Special Olympics Athletes!
The Virtual Academy students turned out in a big way to lend support to this event which means so much to our community. We are so proud of the athletes and all of the family and friends who make the Special Olympics possible each year. Our students supported individual athletes as well as helped out in the concession stand.
Red Ribbon Week is here!
Across Virtual Academy labs students have been wearing red and signing the pledge to not do drugs. We are excited about the commitment these kids have made and want to support them in every way we can. Part of that support comes in making strong bonds and that is big part of the Virtual Academy!
Fractions are our Friends!
Fractions can bring on stress for some students, but they are part of our lives-- from cooking to sockets and drill bits, fractions are a part of life. Students in the 3-6 MCVA got a chance to work on their fraction skills and find resources that can be very helpful in learning how to work with fractions.
Muffins for Moms!
What a great way to get parents and students together to discuss what has been going on at school and ways to make the program even better. Mom's came out and enjoyed muffins and juice while students presented them with coasters they made in lab. We discussed virtual school in general and parents shared their tips and any concerns they had. It was a great way to allow parents to get to know each other and to bring everyone together.
