    Legacy Families and Friends!

     

    The time has come for our 100th Day TO School Celebration! Some of you may remember, but others are like…what in the world is Mr. Markusen talking about now? Does he not realize that we are well past the “100th Day” OF school and actually quite close to the end of the year as a matter of fact. Yes, I do realize these facts, but we are looking to continue our little twist on this time-honored tradition again over the summer of 2022!

     

    We still recognize the 100th day of school when that comes up during the year, but often times we get towards the end of the year and it becomes a countdown to when we are finally done with the school year. I fully realize that we all (teachers, parents, students, etc.) need a break, as well as some time to enjoy summer and recharge. That being said, counting down to the end of the year at times feels like we can’t wait to get away from school. We work hard and very purposefully in creating a culture, climate, and learning environment here at Legacy that is one we can't wait to be a part of. I often refer to Legacy as a "Destination" type school where students and staff cannot wait to get here each day!

     

    May 17th marks 100 days exactly until we start up the 22-23 school year on August 25th! We want to build momentum and excitement towards this day and have a fun way to do so. Your son/daughter has or 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 25th. 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!

     

     

    Hopefully this helps build excitement to the start of an amazing 22-23 school year, as well as help reinforce these important academic, social, and physical skills we have worked on this year and will continue to next year as well.

     

    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 in the fall next year! Please plan to bring those back to your homeroom teacher at the start of next year!

     

    Thanks and Cheers to our Legacy Lion Leaders!

  • Reading Corps

    Legacy Elementary has been awarded a North Dakota Reading Corps Tutor position for next year! The Literacy Tutor will work with K-3 students who need a boost to catch up in reading. Tutors provide one-on-one research-based interventions to K-3 students, who are just below proficiency in reading (Tier II children). They tutor each student daily for 20 minutes in a pull-out format during the day, to build phonics, phonemic awareness, and fluency skills. Reading Corps provides our school with the expertise of an outside literacy consultant (Master Coach) who provides support and oversight by visiting the school regularly.

    We are recruiting now for our Elementary Literacy Tutor who will serve at our school for 10 months, beginning in August. The position will be about 20 hours or 28 hours/week (Monday-Friday when school is in session). The Tutor will receive training, a monthly living allowance of $1,025 or $1,350 and an annual education award of $2,474 or $3,247 at the end of the year to be used for college tuition or other educational purposes. Tutors who are 55 or older may choose to transfer their education award to a child, grandchild or foster child within 7 years.

    If you know someone who might be interested—a graduating college student, a friend in career transition, a grandparent or stay-at-home parent—please please direct them to https://www.ndreadingcorps.org/become-a-tutor/ to learn more and apply for this position.

    Medication Reminder!

    Please remember to pick up your child’s medication by the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL. Students are NOT permitted to transport medications home. Any medication remaining at school after the last day of school will be properly disposed of. This includes all prescription and non-prescription medications, inhalers, and Epi-Pens. 

    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 AND pick it up at the conclusion of summer school. 

    If your child will need medications at school next year, forms will be mailed to you or you can visit the WFPS website (www.west-fargo.k12.nd.us) under the “Families” tab to obtain the form. 

    If you have any questions, please email Nurse Rachael.
