Patriot's Pen Essay Winners
Several students at Legg Middle School entered the Patriot’s Pen Essay Competition sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars this year. The essay consisted of 300-400 words developing the theme of “The America I Believe In”. Each essay was composed solely by the student combining his/her knowledge and beliefs on the topic. The entries were combined with entries from all over the area in the competition. LMS is excited to announce that Ben Harris, Shay Mains, and Tate Hostetler received a monetary award for their essays! Tate, Shay, and Ben were chosen from these entries for a monetary award for their excellent essays. We are so proud of these students and wish them our congratulations!

Legg Middle School Receives Energy Kit Donation
Thanks to a recent donation from the Coldwater Board of Public Utilities, Legg Middle School 8th graders will now have hands on lab experience to enrich their learning regarding renewable energy sources. The CBPU purchased the renewable energy kits using educational funds available through it’s Energy Optimization Program.
“We are extremely grateful for this generous donation! Bob Granger really made this happen for us. We appreciate his collaboration with our science teachers to help choose the kits and arrange for them to be shipped directly to LMS,” said Amy Van Zee, 8th grade science teacher at Legg Middle School.

Students were rewarded with an extra pass. The May Cardinal Pride goal is to have no more than three missing assignments in all classes.
