WHY LEGENDS CHARTER SCHOOL
Message From Principal Brady
Dear Legends Families,
I am delighted to extend a warm and enthusiastic welcome to each of you as we prepare to embark on a new
school year filled with promise, growth, and discovery. My name is Mellanie Brady, and I am both honored and
excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Legends Charter School. As a dedicated educator and
lifelong advocate for student success, I am committed to fostering a safe, inclusive, and engaging learning
environment that empowers every student to thrive.
With the start of the academic year just around the corner, I want to take this opportunity to share my vision for
Legends and outline my beliefs as a school leader:
At Legends, we recognize that education is a collaborative effort between school, home, and the
community. I am a firm believer in the power of open communication and partnership. I am committed to
building strong relationships with each of you to ensure that together, we create an environment in which our
students can excel academically, socially, and emotionally.
Open and effective communication is key to a successful school year. My door is always
open to you. Whether you have questions, concerns, or simply want to share your thoughts, I encourage you to
reach out. Together, we can work towards creating an environment where every child feels supported and
inspired to learn. I encourage you to stay connected through Parent Square, grade level weekly newsletters,
social media channels, and email.
We will uphold high expectations of academic excellence for all students at Legends.
Our dedicated teachers and staff are passionate about providing rigorous and engaging instruction that
challenges students to reach their fullest potential. In the coming months, we will be focusing on implementing
innovative teaching strategies, personalized learning approaches, and opportunities for students to explore their
interests and passions.
Parent and Family Engagement:
I firmly believe that parental involvement is essential to student success.
Throughout the year, we will offer various opportunities for you to engage with our school community, from
parent-teacher conferences, workshops, monthly Chat-and-Chews with the Principal, to volunteer opportunities
and special events. Your active participation is invaluable and greatly contributes to the posit ive growth of our
Collaboration | Respect | Excellence | Love | Diversity | Innovation
I am genuinely thrilled to embark on this journey with all of you. Together, we will shape the future of Legends
and continue to provide our students with a well-rounded education that equips them for success in an ever-evolving world.
Thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children. I am looking forward to an exceptional year of
growth, learning, and achievement.
Principal, Legends Charter School

Equity Now's efforts are focused on discovering, planning and implementing innovative solutions for pathways of building equity in the community. Our efforts are strategically focused on the growing number of families fighting for economic and educational equity.
Many of the problems families and communities face are adaptive requiring legislation which can be litigious, time consuming and slow. Globally, the U.S. is at risk of declining economic competitiveness due to its continuing lower levels of educational attainment. The U.S. currently ranks 44th according to the quality of its mathematics and science education. The problem is exacerbated when you dig into the middle-class community.
There is a growing recognition of the importance of equity to economic development and upward mobility. High-quality education improves long-term academic and economic outcomes for children and communities. Therefore, Equity Now is committed to nurturing the full capacity of communities, helping them achieve their full economic and academic potential.
Education is the key to success in life, and teachers makes a lasting impact in the lives of their students.
