The gala-themed luncheon is when we pay tribute to our Teachers of the Year and School/Support Professionals of the Year as well as the business and community partnerships that have made outstanding contributions to student achievement. 

    The Legacy of Excellence program also features performances by student musicians and is our highest regarded recognitions event of the school year.
