Legacy Christian Academy celebrates homecoming

Legacy Christian Academy in Andover got into the homecoming spirit last week.

The festivities kicked off Jan. 13 with a patriot theme. Each day had a different theme from “Twins Day,” to “Animal Print/Hunter Day,” to “Super Hero/Work Uniform Day,” to “Spirit Day.”

The week culminated with junior varsity and varsity games Jan. 18 at the National Sports Center campus in Blaine featuring the hockey team and boys’ and girls’ basketball teams.

Before these games started Saturday, there was a pancake breakfast at the school and a morning alumni volleyball tournament. Teams of faculty and students faced off against each other Jan. 17 in a basketball game.

Friday morning was set aside for pep fests for the elementary and secondary level students. A variety show in the school’s worship center gave students a chance to show their many talents.
