The Legacy Times

Volume 13 - August 2018

Director's Spotlight: Shanna Grubb

Dear Legacies Line family,

It's great to be back in full swing with the team. We had a wonderful weekend at camp! Your girls have been truly amazing. The girls were awarded the "Rainmaker" award for heart and dedication, the "Most Disciplined" team, a "Platinum Elite" rating and "Outstanding Precision". I would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who helped with the goody bags and to Brooke Smith for putting them together. We could not have survived those late nights and early mornings without those snacks. Also, a big thank you to Mona Savage and AJ Barkley for getting the girls tote bags from the booster club. Those were a much needed item and a nice surprise for the girls to have at camp. Another lifesaver at camp was our new water jugs! A big thank you to Vedra DeVos for finding and ordering those for us so the girls could stay hydrated. Also, a huge thank you to Mrs. Hargraves for attending camp with us this weekend and acting as our assistant director.

I would like to send out a big congratulations to Liliann DeVos, Alyssa Meissner and Lili Woody for winning Star Dancer at camp.

We have a lot on our schedule this week including fall poster pics! A few time changes have come up that I informed your girls of last week. On Friday, we will have camp from 9:00-12:30 along with big and little sis reveal. Officers will perform at the main entrance of The Ford Star early Friday morning, as teachers are entering for FISD Convocation. Another important thing you don't want to miss is that Mr. Durand and I have planned a Legacy Line parent meeting on August 21st at 6:30 pm right before our first booster club meeting for the year. I hope your girls are getting lots of rest and recovering from camp as we are pushing ourselves to "Rise Up" this year. Thank you again for all of the support and for everything you do for the Legacy Line! What a wonderful start we have had. I can't believe Friday night lights are just around the corner.
