ACADEMIC CONTESTS: Legacy provides a variety of academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities for students. Each year, Legacy sponsors academic contests to encourage academic pursuits: the Speech Contest (3rd-8th grades), Spelling Bee (3rd-8th grades), and STEM Expo (K-8th grades).
SCIENCE OLYMPIAD: The 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 from 2012-2015.
AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES: Legacy 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, cooking, and violin.
ASSOCIATED STUDENT BODY (ASB): Legacy 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 a poster 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.
