The Family Ministry Program helps families and staff understand Legacy’s mission as it relates to the partnership with parents. The parent-school partnership is evaluated to determine training needs and help parents live out Deuteronomy 6:7. Family Ministry supports parents’ efforts at passing along their faith and values by integrating spiritual and character instruction into academics and student activities, and ensuring that Legacy’s discipline policies encourage growth. A culture of Christ-like love is promoted to encourage a rich learning environment.

Character Trait of the Month: RespectRespect Image

The word respect is a translation of the Greek word timēsate, meaning “honor or value.” It literally means “to place a great value or high price on something.”  At Legacy, we have one rule: Respect.  Respect God, Authorities, Others, Ourselves, and Property.

1 Peter 2:17,  “Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.”

 

Teacher Tip

We know that to improve reading comprehension, we need to get kids to read more. The question is, HOW? First, find a topic they’re interested in. If your student likes sports, find a series with a sports theme. Second, let them read below their reading level occasionally so they can enjoy the fun of reading without it feeling like work. Again, find a series of books and let them relax and read!
