The Legacy Times

Vol. 9 - March 2018

Director's Spotlight: Shanna Grubb

Dear Legacy family,

I'm so proud of how great the girls did at contest in February. Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in to make that happen. We couldn't have done it without you all and your tremendous support. From getting your girls to practice each morning to moving props and altering costumes you really came through for your girls and the team. We appreciate you so much! Thank you for being those parents who constantly go the extra mile. I hope you all enjoy your spring break and have some special time together as a family. I can't wait to return and finish the season with a bang at Nationals. I am thankful for the grit, perseverance and determination your girls are showing each day.

As we go into our final stretch of preparations, to make sure things go smoothly for the girls, we need to have one more parent practice to master setting up all the curtains at Nationals. We would love to have as many hands as we can get to help this run flawlessly and quickly. I have reserved the gym for a rehearsal for the parents who can help on Saturday (3/24) at Nationals with this big task, The rehearsal will take place on Thursday March 22 at 7:30 pm-8:30pm. Please sign up on this signup genius if you can attend and help on Saturday. Thank you again for everything you do.
