Welcome to Legend

Welcome back to another exciting school year at Legend Elementary! I am thrilled to begin another school year as your Principal and am honored to continue working alongside our dedicated staff, supportive parents, and, of course, our remarkable students.

This school year, we will continue to focus on our core PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) traits: Be Kind, Be Safe, Be a Learner. These values are the foundation of our school community and guide us in everything we do. We are committed to creating a safe, and supportive learning environment where each child can thrive and reach their full potential.

Be Kind: At Legend Elementary, we emphasize the importance of kindness in all aspects of our lives. Encouraging our students to be kind to one another fosters a positive and supportive atmosphere in which everyone feels valued and respected.

Be Safe: Safety is our top priority. Teaching our students to make safe choices helps them grow into responsible individuals who can contribute positively to their community.

Be a Learner: Learning is a lifelong journey, and we are all learners at Legend Elementary. We encourage curiosity, critical thinking, and a growth mindset in our students. Our goal is to inspire a love for learning that will serve them well throughout their lives.

I want to extend a warm welcome to our new families who are joining the Legend Elementary community this year. You will find that our school is a place where you can actively engage in your child's education, and we encourage your involvement in our school events and activities.

Please be sure to connect with your child’s teacher through Class Dojo and follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-date information, including important announcements, the school calendar, and resources to support your child's learning journey.

I am excited about the incredible year of learning, exploration, and growth that lies ahead. Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of educating your child. Here's to a fantastic school year filled with achievement, laughter, and unforgettable memories!
