Weekly Update 11.12
Good Afternoon, League Academy! I hope you have all enjoyed a beautiful fall weekend! I can’t believe we are getting ready for Thanksgiving. It seems this year is going by faster than years past. We have a busy week this week at League!
We are celebrating some amazing 8th grade students on Tuesday night at our 2018 Beta Club Induction! As a National School of Distinction from the National Junior Beta Club, we turn out a large amount of Beta Club students each year. Our Beta Club Induction will be Tuesday night at 6:00. Congratulations to all of our 8th grade Beta Club students!
Please join us this Thursday evening for our Fall Theatre Production of Small Actors. The show will begin at 6:30- it is sure to be a full house! Admission is $3.00 and proceeds go to to the League Academy Theatre Department. If you have never seen a theatre production at League, you must come! You will not be disappointed.
I would like to remind everyone that Thanksgiving Break is Wednesday, November 21-23.
As we begin to move towards Thanksgiving, I would like to let you all know how thankful I am for this League Academy community. I feel so incredibly supported by our community, our parents, and our teachers and staff. Thank you all for being active in your student’s education as well as our school.
Have a great week this week and a very Happy Thanksgiving next week.

League Academy Food Drive
We will be having a food drive to collect items for our backpack program from now until Thanksgiving break. Each grade has been assigned certain items to ensure we have the necessary variety.
6th grade- breakfast items (instant oatmeal, mini boxes of dry cereal, granola bars)
7th grade- snack items (crackers, trail mix, apple sauce, etc)
8th grade- lunch items (easy mac, soup, chef Boyardee)
The C3 on each team who collects the most food will earn donuts from PTA and the grade who collects the most will earn an extra day of outside time during C3.

League Academy Business Partners
New Business Partner Program
We are jump starting a much needed Business Partnership Program with our League Families and local businesses. This year we are looking to focus on a "Business Partner of the Week", where we would focus on advertising your business (and your business alone) during the school week. (Note that we also like the idea of 2 - 3 businesses also pairing up to be co-partners of the week). The goal being to really spotlight all attention on ONE SINGLE business everyday for a solid week.
What businesses will get...
- 3 x 5 Vinyl banner in the car line with your logo/business Only one banner displayed on our Business Partner of the Week Wall...with no other logos appearing during that week.
- Advertising on our our push text messages (Remind), Facebook, hallway projector, and on the PTA and website.
- We would encourage businesses to provide any swag, flyers, business cards, discount coupons, etc. that we can help hand-out during that week.
- Listed on all Program Inserts handed out during events (Orchestra, Drama, Choir Performances)
We are looking for a $250 contribution to make this happen. And again, if you know another business that you'd like to work with, you could pair up to share that $250. If you are interested, please contact Cady Johnson via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone/text at 864-630-0221.
