Our 6th and 7th graders had a great opportunity of learning with Heidi Carey from “FRIENDS of the UPPER EAST SIDE” on July 7th and 8th 2015.
This building fun activity was conducted in three parts. First was an introductory lesson in class. The students studied photographs of buildings and were introduced to architectural vocabulary. Next students went on a walking tour to act as architectural detectives and survey three buildings on our island: Blackwell House, The Good Shepherd Church and The Octagon. When they returned to class, students designed their own New York City building. It was a fun morning to all.
The TCS/Legacy 2015 Annual Founder's Dinner was a great success. It was held on May 21st, at Terrace on the Park.
We had the pleasure of honoring Lidia Bastianich, John Starks, and Constance Mitchell-Ford.
School Library Dedication
Sheila Steiner, a beloved member of the TCS/Legacy High School staff for more than 10 years passed away in 2013. We dedicated our school library to Sheila whose contribution to our school will always be appreciated.
The Parents Association organized this beautiful ceremony in memory of Sheila which was followed by a wine and cheese reception on April 24th2015.
Sheila was a passionate supporter of the school and its families and a dedicated member of the P.A. Steering Committee. For many of us, Sheila was our first contact with the school; she helped us negotiate the transition to a non-public school; and she remained a gracious and kind presence after we enrolled.

Events (Soccer Championship )
The Legacy team worked very hard on the defensive end for several minutes creating chances for the Legacy mid-field and offense to put some pressure on the Winston defense. In the middle of the second half Serge got a great chance to tie the game and hit the cross bar. Both teams had several great chances in the next few minutes. Then Benito got the ball on the far side of the field and was able to dribble around two defenders and got a pass to Jessie who scored the tying goal. It looked like the game would go into overtime. With less than five minutes in the game Jessie kicked a long high ball that was just out of reach of the Winston goalie's outstretched arms giving Legacy a 3-2 lead. Winston came on strong again; it looked as though they might tie the game but Legacy defense held strong.
A big thank you to all the teachers and parents that came out to support the team it means the world to our players!!!
The coach from Winston said it was a great game to watch and after such a close and hard fought game that the sportsmanship displayed by both teams was excellent.
Congratulations to all involved!
