Principal's Blog 10-25/18

October 25th, 2018

It looks like many didn't have a chance to read my last blog.  Here is the link if you missed it.

Leader In Me Incentive System
Legacy Point has implemented a new Incentive System this year.  Students have compasses in their classrooms on which they strive to get stars for demonstrating leadership.  Once they have a star on the North, South, East and West point of the compass, they bring it down to the office.  I have been personally congratulating students for leaving a legacy, giving them a bracelet that says "Learn, Live, Love, Laugh and Leave a Legacy."  Then we put their name on a strip of paper that is placed in a bucket.  At our monthly Leadership assembly, we randomly pull two names from each grade level and present them with a yard sign that says, "A Legacy Point Leader Lives Here."  We have given out over 300 bracelets so far this year and are now switching to pencils that say, "Legacy Point Leader."  Students have been very excited about this system and displaying their leadership skills.

PTIB/Fundraising Update
Have you wondered where the money we raise has been going?  There are two different ways to learn about how LPE spends its fundraising dollars.  First, we will be putting a balance sheet on the website.  It is in the process of being refined and should be posted shortly with a list of what we have purchased with some of this money as well as a column so show how much we are raising.  Secondly, at the next PTIB meeting there will be an opportunity to examine and ask questions about the budget.  The next meeting will be Tuesday, October 30th at 4:15.  Please join us!

Students will come to school in their Halloween costumes this year.  Please make sure costumes are appropriate for elementary.  They will proceed to their classrooms for attendance then go our our October Leadership Assembly at 9:15.  Our Student Lighthouse Council will be leading the assembly.  All parents are welcome.  Classroom parties will follow beginning at approximately 9:45.

Don't forget Ponderosa is having their Trick or Treat Street tonight!  It will be from 4-6 p.m.  Bring 1 canned food item or $1.00 for admission.
