Letter to Parents

August 2012

Dear Fourth Grade Parents:

Welcome to Legacy Academy iSchool. Your children made a wonderful first impression last week.  It will be a great year.

We have a special group of students, staff, and parents.  The date of LA’s Open House will be announced soon.  If you are new to Legacy Academy, this will be an opportunity to get to know one another.

Born in Denver, I have lived in Elbert County since 1960. I have been married to the lovely Betsy for 34 years, have two wonderful children, Sam (25) and Sophie (21), and consider it a privilege to work with children. This will be my eleventh year teaching fourth grade at the charter school. Previously, I worked in special education for three years at Singing Hills Elementary while working towards my Master’s Degree in Education.

Please read the school wide behavior plan in your Parents Handbook (it begins on page 29).  The plan will be covered in detail with your student. Please sign and return the following signature pages by Friday, August 31:

  • Legacy Academy Network / Internet Acceptable Use Policy (page 36)
  • Handbook Receipt (page 37)

If you have Handbook questions, please jot them down on the back of the signature page.  Clarifications of questions will then be covered with the class to ensure conformity.

Your child’s academic, physical, and social needs can be best served when we communicate and work together. My contact information is attached. Thank you for your cooperation and support.

Sincerely,

Dave Tallent
