Highlights

Greetings from the Director

Fall is usually a very busy time for schools and families. This year seems to be much busier as we continue to gain a better understanding of how to balance virtual and face-to-face activities and lessons. Overall, I am very pleased with the commitment and quality of work being displayed by our scholars and our wonderful educators. As we move closer to the end of this calendar year I am sure you will all notice more options for scholars and more opportunities for our families to become involved in the life of our school.

It was so nice to see over 40 high school scholars on campus this morning to complete the SAT/PSAT as they plan their journey beyond Legacy and on to college or trade school. We utilized all of our safety protocols to maintain a safe and healthy working environment for these scholars and the teachers who were here to help out. Let’s hope all of these fine young adults did really well and many doors open for them as they move forward in their educational journey’s.

After school tutoring began this week. If your scholar has been invited to join a tutoring group, either virtually or face-to-face, please make every effort to have them in attendance. If your scholar was not invited to a tutoring group but you feel they would benefit from some more academic support please reach out to your child’s teacher.

I can’t stress enough how important it is to stay vigilant in keeping your scholars home if they are not feeling well or if they have come in contact with someone who is suffering from the symptoms of Covid-19. Let’s continue to work together and stay strong, stay safe, and stay healthy.

Respectfully,

Michael Davies

Director

Saludos del Director

El otoño suele ser una época muy ocupada para las escuelas y las familias. Este año parece estar mucho más ocupado a medida que continuamos obteniendo una mejor comprensión de cómo equilibrar las actividades y lecciones virtuales y presenciales. En general, estoy muy satisfecho con el compromiso y la calidad del trabajo que muestran nuestros académicos y nuestros maravillosos educadores. A medida que nos acercamos al final de este año calendario, estoy seguro de que todos notarán más opciones para los estudiantes y más oportunidades para que nuestras familias se involucren en la vida de nuestra escuela.


Fue muy agradable ver a más de 40 estudiantes de secundaria en el campus esta mañana para completar el SAT / PSAT mientras planean su viaje más allá de Legacy y hacia la universidad o la escuela de oficios. Utilizamos todos nuestros protocolos de seguridad para mantener un ambiente de trabajo seguro y saludable para estos estudiantes y los maestros que estaban aquí para ayudar. Esperemos que a todos estos buenos jóvenes adultos les haya ido realmente bien y que se les abran muchas puertas a medida que avanzan en su viaje educativo.


La tutoría después de la escuela comenzó esta semana. Si su estudiante ha sido invitado a unirse a un grupo de tutoría, ya sea de manera virtual o presencial, haga todo lo posible para que asista. Si su estudiante no fue invitado a un grupo de tutoría, pero cree que se beneficiaría de más apoyo académico, comuníquese con el maestro de su hijo.


No puedo enfatizar lo suficiente lo importante que es mantenerse alerta para mantener a sus estudiantes en casa si no se sienten bien o si han entrado en contacto con alguien que sufre los síntomas del Covid-19. Sigamos trabajando juntos y mantengamos la fuerza, la seguridad y la salud.


Respetuosamente,


Michael Davies

Director

United States Senate Youth Program for High School Scholars

In 1962, the United States Senate voted unanimously to endorse a nationwide youth program to bring high school students to Washington, DC for a brief introduction to the functions of the federal government. The program was created and authorized by Senate Resolution 234 and has been reauthorized ever since. The original resolution specified that the program be "supported by private funds with no expense to the federal government". As a result, The Hearst Foundations assumed financial support of the program and continues its sponsorship today.


The annual United States Senate Youth Program authorizes the selection of 104 student delegates, two from each state, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Office of Dependents Schools. The delegates are immersed in Washington activities throughout their week-long stay. Their stops include visits to the Senate, the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court, and the Pentagon. Delegates hear major addresses by senators, cabinet members, officials of the Department of State and the Department of Defense, as well as other federal departments.


Each year, the Hearst Foundations pay all expenses for the week-long Washington stay, including transportation, hotel accommodations, and meals. Members of all branches of the US military chaperone the students for the week. Each delegate is awarded a $10,000 college scholarship for undergraduate studies.


Note: Due to the uncertainties posed by the ongoing pandemic, Washington Week will be held in a virtual format from March 15 through March 18, 2021.
