LEGACY LINK

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

We had a fantastic Open House last week! It was a great turnout with lots of excitement about Legacy Christian and next school year! We saw many new families who commented they had heard about Legacy from a neighbor, or a friend. THANK YOU for being our biggest promoters! If you have not done so already, we are asking you to register your student for next year's Preschool, Young Five's or one of our Kindergarten classes before the end of this month.(Registration form attached to this newsletter and available in the school office) Even if you are not positive on which class your student will attend next year, it's better to have their name on a list. This information is VERY important for decisions that are already being made for next school year regarding staff, class sizes, etc. So don't delay! Register today with your completed registration form and a $50 deposit to secure your child's spot in one of the these classes. (New students to Legacy will require a copy of their birth certificate as well). Please know that some of classes fill quickly and all registrations are accepted in the order in which they are received. Please have them turned in to the office by Jan. 31! Thanks for your help with this!

SCHOOL BOARD NOMINEES

Our school's executive committee is collecting suggestions for school board nominees. Would you like to suggest any names for consideration? The committee welcomes input from parents and staff members. If you have suggestions, please submit them to Mr. Bonnema or any of the school board officers!
