Each year, Legacy sponsors academic contests to encourage academic pursuits: the Speech Contest (3rd-8th grades), Geography Bee (3rd-8th grades), Spelling Bee (3rd-8th grades), and Science Fair (K-8th grades).
Accelerated ReaderThe A.R. (Accelerated Reader) program is an Electronic Learning Resource that analyzes readability levels of books, guides students to appropriate level reading materials, and provides computer generated quizzes to assess learning. In 1st-8th grades, there is 100% participation of the A.R. program. Students are rewarded with Accelerated Reader Points, the book treasure box, and classroom A.R. incentives.
Science OlympiadThe Science Olympiad team meets for eight weeks in the winter. Seventeen 4th-6th graders participate in this club which prepares them to enter the regional competition of the National Science Olympiad in February. Students actively engage in a variety of science projects and experiments. Fifteen students, with two alternates, represented Legacy at the regional competition. The Legacy team has been awarded the gold medal in 2012 and 2013.
Contract ClassesLegacy offers after school “contract” classes to its students. Students can participate in these activities for an extra fee. Options vary but past offerings included robotics, dance, cheer, Legos, self defense, chess, mad science, golf, tennis, cooking, and violin.
ASBLegacy Christian Academy’s Associated Student Body is comprised of 4th-8th grade student leaders. They are responsible for promoting school spirit, planning fun events and activities, and helping Legacy be the best school it can be. A student who wishes to be a candidate for the ASB must be a good citizen, a hard-working, responsible, and diligent student. They must be able to relate well to other students and adults, and have a servant’s heart; willing to assist in all kinds of activities. Academically, they must maintain a “B” average or above. Lastly, they must acquire approval from parents, teacher, and school administration. Students in 6th – 8th grades may nominate themselves to run for the offices of President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Spirit Officer, Chaplain, or Community Liaison. Students in 4th and 5th grades may nominate themselves to run for Class Representative. Each candidate creates two posters and a speech as part of the campaign process. 4th-8th grade students vote for class representative and ASB officers. The ASB serves for the duration of the school year. They oversee student birthday balloon deliveries each day, spirit day planning, snack bar sales, Lion’s Den filming, and community service opportunities.
