Legacy Elementary School News
Legacy Families and Friends!
Welcome to the 4th Annual Legacy Elementary 100th Day TO School! We want to build momentum and excitement towards this day and have a fun way to do so. Your son/daughter will be bringing home a LEADERS BINGO sheet that focuses on many of the “Big Rocks” we have worked on throughout this year at Legacy. Things such as Reading, Math, Writing, 7 Mindsets, Being Active/Fitness/Healthy Choices, P & the 4 C’s (Perseverance, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking), and Exploration/Creative type activities!
We are hoping Legacy students will countdown the days on the 100 day countdown sheet until we start up again in August. Also look to complete as many of the activities on our Leaders Bingo sheet throughout the summer. Teachers will then be collecting these on the first day back on August 28th. They will look to showcase what has been done throughout the summer be it one square filled out, a regular BINGO of some sort or a BLACKOUT BINGO!! This will be a great way to team build as we start a new year together and to reinforce these "Big Rocks" as we call them here at Legacy. These Leadership Challenges, Academic/Life Skills, and Creative ideas do not stop and start with the beginning and end of our school year. We want these Habits and Mindsets to go not just through the school year, but through the summer and stay with our students throughout their lives!
One other note - for those students that end up completing every square on the Leadership BINGO sheet throughout the summer, thus a Blackout BINGO…we will be looking to have a Leadership Lunch with Mr. Markusen and Mr. Helm in the fall next year. Date and logistics yet to be determined. Hopefully we have a huge number of students in each grade level that earn this celebration! Please plan to bring those back to your homeroom teacher at the start of next year!

If your child has any medication in the office, it will need to be picked up before May 30th. Any remaining medication will be disposed of. Medication will NOT be sent home with the student.
If your child is attending summer school at another location and will be needing the medication during summer school, parents/guardians are required to bring the medication to that location themselves.
If you have any questions, please email Nurse Rachael.

School-Based Sealant Program
Seal! ND School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program
In 2012, The North Dakota Department of Health, Oral Health Program (OHP) implemented the Seal! ND School-based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program. Public health dental hygienists visit schools two times a year (fall and spring) and provide direct preventive services, under standing orders of a dentist which include: oral health education, a screening, dental sealant and fluoride varnish application. A parent/guardian signed consent form is required to participate in the Seal! ND fluoride varnish and dental sealant program.
Services are provided to schools that are recognized as being in need by the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (DPI). Students attending pre-kindergarten through 12th grade (depending upon the school) with parent/guardian consent are eligible to receive the free oral health services. A goody bag consisting of a result sheet (what the child had done), toothbrush, toothpaste and floss will be provided to each child that is seen. In the West Fargo area, Maple Family Dental will be providing the services. Watch for more information to come!

The Parent Portal is a tool designed to keep parents informed of their child's academic progress; it is a supplement to other school-parent communication. A single sign-on functionality is available that allows parents to have a single account for multiple children. In order to access the Parent Portal, a single sign-on account must be created. Children can be added to an account by utilizing the account ID and password provided by the child's school.
Setting Up Your Account
Print a copy of the Parent Portal Access Request Form. Complete the form and bring it, and your photo ID, to your child's school.
Once the information is validated, the Parent Portal ID and password will be emailed to the address provided on the form. This information will be needed to assign students to your Parent Portal single sign-on account. Note: the access ID and password are not your Parent Portal credentials.
Prior to creating your single sign-on account, you will need the access ID(s) and password(s) emailed by your child's school. Contact the school if you misplaced the information.
Use a web browser to navigate to the PowerSchool login. Log in and select the CREATE ACCOUNT tab and the CREATE ACCOUNT button. Follow the questions to enter your first name, your last name, your email address, your desired username, and your chosen password.
Select the LINK STUDENTS TO ACCOUNT tab and follow the questions to enter your child's name, the associated access ID for the child, the associated password, and the relationship you have to the child. Repeat these steps to add additional children to your single sign-on account.
