Legacy Elementary PTO - Watch D.O.G.S.

Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) is the safe school initiative of the National Center for Fathering that involves fathers and father figures to help create a more safe and secure learning environment in our nation's schools. Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day each year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal and other administrators. Watch DOG volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher's guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards or spelling.

To sign up or find out more click here: http://legacyelementary.my-pto.org/content.asp?PageID=18

We will be asking mainly for dads of K-2 students, due to SOLs in the upper grades.

If dads of older students want to volunteer, they definitely can, but we are asking that they either sign up on a day when their child is not taking an SOL, or they will need to understand that they might not get to volunteer in their child’s room due to testing.

Congratulations SEAC Awards!
Legacy: Inclusive School with Outstanding Systemic Support and Acceptance

[05/15/19]   Good evening Legacy Families,

My name is Kirsten O’Hara and it is my pleasure to announce that the Loudoun County School Board has appointed me to become the next Principal of Legacy Elementary. I have been serving students in Loudoun County for my entire 20-year career in education. It was my privilege to serve as the Assistant Principal of Round Hill Elementary for the past 15 years. During that time, I had the opportunity to foster a strong community of learners, establish many district initiatives, and facilitate the development of a computer science immersion school. Before going to Round Hill Elementary, I taught Special Education at Farmwell Station Middle School and then taught second, third and fifth grades at Sully Elementary.

Relationships with staff, students and families are very important to me and I look forward to building those with all of you in the weeks and months to come. I truly believe that we must work together to maintain an environment where all children can be successful. As I look to the future, I pledge to work alongside you and our staff to build a strong legacy of engaged learners that will be successful in their future endeavors.

I will officially assume my duties as your new principal on Tuesday, May 28, but can be contacted before that time at [email protected].

THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS CARNIVAL SPONSORS!

Volunteer with TEALS

Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) is seeking volunteers to help with its TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) program.

For the past several years, the TEALS program has placed professionals from the technology industry into Loudoun County high schools to work with Loudoun’s computer science teachers to drive increased enrollment and excitement and bring real industry experience into the classroom. Learn about the computer science talent gap, why it’s an important issue for the high-tech economy, and how you can get involved to help teach computer science to high school students. By the end of this session, you’ll know specific steps you can take with the TEALS program to create more opportunities for young people to experience and learn computer science in Loudoun County.

An information session is scheduled to provide interested participants an introduction to the TEALS program, the role of TEALS volunteers in LCPS Computer Science classrooms, and how interested participants can apply to be a TEALS volunteer. The information session is scheduled for Tuesday, May 14 from 7:00PM – 8:00PM in Ashburn VA (LCPS Administration Building, 21000 Education Ct, Ashburn, VA 20148). To register for the information sessions, please RSVP here.


Visit www.tealsk12.org to learn more. Volunteer at www.tealsk12.org/volunteers.
