Fall Craft

Constructing this adorable Halloween trio gives a chance to engage creativity, visit with friends and create fun seasonal décor. Beyond the fun aspects, arts and crafts help students develop lifelong characteristics of decision-making, persistence, focus, accountability and confidence. A big shout out to Cindy, Sue, Marcy and Marcy’s husband Matt for their efforts to provide this fun activity!

Pumpkin Patch

We went on our annual field trip to Jaker’s Jack-O-Lanterns. There are so many activities to explore. Some took advantage of the hay ride, while others visited the petting zoo. Shelled feed corn in the big corn pit was like a giant sandbox. Parents were encouraged to engage with their children and to do those things that are fun and interesting for the child’s age. New experiences open opportunities to use and explain new words. It was a great day to be a Crusader!

Autumn Hike

We enjoyed the beautiful weather and gorgeous scenery on our recent field trip to Big Springs Hollow Trail in Provo Canyon. This gentle hike is great for families. Hiking has many benefits! It is a healthy form of stress management. Hiking is good for you physically, but it is also a great way to unplug from technology and bond with family members.

Fall Parent-Teacher Conference Open House

Legacy provides unique opportunities during Parent-Teacher Conference time. Beyond communicating progress, grades and missing assignments, students are able to use the time as an intervention period to get help making up unfinished work. In addition to this assistance, students that attend the conferences are able to reverse three unexcused absences. Finally, families and students that attend the Fall Parent-Teacher Open House can also stop by the lunchroom for a light dinner of soup, bread, salad and dessert. The big question is why would anyone pass up these chances?

Staying Safe at School

Every school practices safety drills. There are four general types:  school evacuation; lockout; lockdown; and drop, cover, and hold (earthquake).  The purpose is to ensure the safety of students and staff.  Drills helps students and staff practice responding to emergency situations. This fall, Mrs. Wilkins was motivated to find a solution to provide blackout shades for our classroom doors. These windows are to be unblocked unless there is a lockdown. During a lockdown, those windows must be covered quickly. The solution was magnetic classroom door window coverings.

6th Annual I-Heart-Tech Conference

Adobe hosted the I-Heart-Tech Conference for 350 local students to attend workshops based on STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education. In a robotics workshop, students faced several programming challenges. The final task was to have their “mBot” robot follow a curving black path. The team with the fastest robot advanced and raced other teams. The coveted prize were Fitbits for the fastest bot. Legacy students persevered and got the win! It was so fun to see how excited our students were as they adjusted the code and tested each change.
