We call this helping students stay "Above the Line."Top 20 puts a focus on developing good habits in (TLC) Thinking, Learning and Communicating! Our students will learn strategies for staying "Above the Line" so they can reach their maximum potential in all areas of their life. Students will learn what it means to Keep Their Day so they are able to navigate through life in a productive manner when conflict and misunderstanding occur.

Top Twenty Be KindSPOT ON Character incentive program for all Legend Springs students!Your child may have already told you about our Character incentive program called SPOT ON! We are excited to catch students and staff members who are SPOT ON with good character! Legend Springs staff will be looking for students to shine in these 7 areas: Safe, Punctual, Optimistic, Team Players, Open-Minded and Noble.
Students will be awarded a SPOT ON character ticket from a Legend Springs staff member if they demonstrate good character and go "above and beyond" in one of these five areas. Each student who receives a SPOT ON ticket will be entered into our weekly character drawing. One child at every grade level will be chosen as our SPOT ON student for the week. Their name will be read on Friday through morning announcements or during Flagpole Fridays. Character prizes will be awarded to our weekly student character winners and our monthly character winners will enjoy lunch with our Principal!
