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!

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.
