Wednesday, November 14, 2018 was Education Support Professionals day and we honored our secretaries, custodial staff, and child care managers that help to make our school great for every student so that they can be safe, learn, grow and achieve. Mrs. Boothe recognized our ESP with gift baskets. They do so much behind the scenes to make things run smoothly. These support professionals provide invaluable services and are essential partners in the student’s education process. Thanks for all you do!
For the past five years, Legacy students have had the opportunity to play volleyball in the Springville City leagues. Mrs. Maria Yazzie, who teaches math and science, also coaches the volleyball team. She said that more girls were interested in being on the team this year than ever before. She also reported that the team had the most consistent attendance, the best retention and the least drama. This year they improved their record by winning two games and one set! Way to represent our school, Crusaders!
We are thrilled to celebrate the successes of last term! We have a large percentage of students earning high grade point averages. Congratulations to all the students recognized at our Awards Assembly!

The festivities were kicked off Tuesday with a craft activity about the Itsy Bitsy Spider. Mrs. Boothe talked about family traditions and learning activities for children. Then she introduced the craft using a paint stirring stick, a clothespin, pipe cleaners and craft foam. The message of the finger play is that the spider never gives up. We may forget the benefits of nursery rhymes and finger plays. They help children with fine motor skills, and with emerging literacy skills such as phonemic awareness and rhyming. It is never too early to read and sing with a child.
