Students had the opportunity to hear from Stephanie B., who graduated from Legacy in 2017 with five kids. She described herself as a “recovering quitter.” She shared her story of getting pregnant as a teen, trying an alternative school setting, and quitting to get a job. Over the next 20 years, she worked many entry-level jobs for minimum wage. During that time, she tried to get her GED and quit, she tried to complete packets for school credit, but gave up.

Sharing the love! Legacy has a tradition of making sugar cookies for Valentine's Day. This year we split the activity into three days. On day one we made the dough. The second day we rolled out the dough, cut out heart-shaped cookies and baked them. On the third day we frosted and decorated the cookies. Everyone went home with at least one heaping plate of cookies for their friends and family. We also had a lovely lunch together of soup, salad and breadsticks! It was a lovely day to be a Crusader!

Field Trip: Beyond Van Gogh

We were able to experience something remarkable thanks to generous donors who made this field trip possible. We were able to visit Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience. Mrs. Kristi Murdock shared her knowledge of Vincent Van Gogh with us prior to our trip and gave us some background information. He is considered to be one of the best Post-Impressionist painters. Van Gogh is known for his use of color and bold, dramatic brush strokes which expressed emotion and added a feeling of movement to his works. This exhibit used projection to make the artwork come alive.
