International Towne is Wednesday, February 19th

Legacy Academy 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will be attending International Towne in Denver the Wednesday following parent-teacher conferences.

Background

International Towne is a one-of-a-kind educational program geared to expose middle schoolers to global economics through fun, hands-on, experiential learning.

Legacy Academy’s middle school teachers have used the curriculum developed by the Young Americans Center for Financial Education to teach concepts in the classroom, which in turn has prepared students for the most crucial (and fun) part of the program: a day running International Towne. 

International Towne is a life-like simulation of a global marketplace where students physically apply concepts they’ve learned as they step into roles as world citizens. All this takes place on-site at Young Americans Center in a 5,000 square foot space architected to be a 16-country mini-world.

What parents need to do now

An online permission slip request has been emailed twice to all parents/guardians of middle school students. The $30 field trip fee is due Thursday, February 13. The fee covers transportation, tuition, and pizza. 

Important note: the permission slip must be completed even if your student will not be attending the field trip.

Who to contact if you still have questions?

Mr. Tallent at dave.tallent@legacyk8.org.
