Thanksgiving Break begins tomorrow, Wednesday, November 27 and school resumes Monday, December 2, 2019. Today, our Legacy family celebrated Thanksgiving together. We invited everyone to bring a favorite food item to share. There were so many wonderful dishes! It was a special time for us to be together and enjoy good food, good company, and recognize all we have to be thankful for. We have a remarkable group of the nicest people at Legacy. At the end of the day, Mrs.
Teachers will be available from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. this afternoon to meet with students and their families to discuss progress and answer questions. See you then!
Students had the opportunity to hear from Stephanie Berry, who graduated from Legacy in 2017 with five kids. 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. In hindsight, she recognizes that she did not have a support system. The struggle was so hard and her self-esteem was so low that she tried to end her life.
Marcy had a great idea to cut some vinyl leaves, acorns and letters to make these autumn blocks. Everyone enjoyed putting their own touch on their project and each was uniquely charming! Thanks to Marcy, Cindy and Sue for preparing the wood by sanding and staining it.
A former student organized a lovely collection of items our students could use; adult coats; fuzzy socks; and sugar cookie decorating kits. From another donor, we received handmade hooded children’s towels, and matching bib and burp cloths. We are so grateful for these generous gifts!
We have a tradition of tying quilts each November to donate to a local shelter. Tying quilts is a great group project; it goes quickly with many hands working together. It takes very little skill or experience and they make lovely warm covers. Four were set up in our main hall, with supplies for a fifth ready and waiting for some frames to free up. Each will remain in the hall so students can add a few stitches as they have free time until all the quilts are finished. Doing a service for someone else helps us gain perspective about our own challenges.
