    I am blessed to work with a very caring and committed staff. We are small close-knit community. Over 50% of our population qualify for free lunch. The teachers who serve and work at this school are constantly giving of their personal time funds and efforts in order to make our school a great place to work. Our teachers rock! We would love to have some additional funds to be able to provide our students and teachers with a wider variety of resources to use in our school.

Thank you staff of Legend Elementary for making this part of your world a better place.
