Join us on December 16, 2017 for a school-wide celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus! As a Christian school, Christmas is a cornerstone event. All of our students are eagerly preparing a performance of the musical “Miracle at the Christmas Café”! This annual season of fellowship is always highly anticipated by staff, students, and families. We are looking forward to another memorable Christmas together at Legacy!
Dear Legacy Families,
We are proud to invite you to our annual Thanksgiving Breakfast. There is so much to be thankful for, and we want to share this special time showing our appreciation for YOU!
Students in each classroom will perform a song and present a handcrafted gift for their parents. An Usborne Book Fair will accompany our Breakfast, so be sure to browse the beautiful and varied books that will be on display.
Looking forward to seeing you then!
Very often, I am asked by parents to advise them on how to help their child thrive, both in and out of school. This is a multi-layered question and the answers involve so many facets of influence that you, as parents, have over your children. At Legacy, I see children in similar circumstances thrive at varying levels. Why is that? The simple answer is because all kids are different. I slightly disagree – the children who thrive in academic, spiritual, and social development have a different type of parents. These parents usually are “in the know”. They are fully engaged in all aspects of support and nurturing. They understand what is happening with their child’s environment and development, what their child is being taught, and they know how to propel their child to the next level
At Legacy, we understand the “thrive thermometer” depends mainly on school and parent influence. It is essential for our parents to see how and why things are done in school and provide consistent reinforcement. On Thursday, November 2, 2017, we are rolling out our first Parent Education Night. This is a must attend event if you want to be “in the know”. Later in the school year, we will be hosting discussion and learning groups to support your parenting effort. Parent engagement makes the difference between average and excellence. Come and become a part of excellence.
Engaged Parents = Successful Students
Feel free to invite your friends to join us for this important event. Complimentary childcare and light dinner will be available. RSVP by contacting Legacy at 858-679-9949 by October 31 so we can be ready for you and your children.
We look forward to seeing you here on Thursday, November 2, 2017!

Preparing for our first parenting Seminar of the school year, I asked myself, what are the essential parenting principles that parents need? What fresh perspectives can I offer? What parenting skills and concepts will profit our families? I reflected on my own experiences over the years as a parent, a teacher and as a school director. I went through my parenting seminar notes, power points presentations, parenting books, notes from counseling parents. How I would have benefited from this information as a young mom!
Then I thought, can I narrow down the skills needed for effective parenting to a Top 10 List? Below is my attempt to do so, although not in any particular order of importance.
1) The importance of authority.
2) Train your child proactively instead of reactively.
3) Understand the 7 essential qualities that every person needs to be successful.
4) Teach excellence instead of mediocrity
5) Nurture purpose and calling in your child’s life.
6) Deal with heart problems directly by shepherding the Spirit.
7) Practice the power of Speaking Life.
8) Deal with the will of a child by setting boundaries.
9) Teach your child to practice principles for Success.
10) Use the Bible as the standard.
Many of these principles are not taught in schools, teacher training courses, nor even used by my own parents. They were gleaned from respected authorities in parenting, tested in my own home, employed by our Teachers here at Legacy, and, hopefully, received into our school’s families. They are to provide focus, guidance and peace to parents; stability, security and boundaries to their children. Our daily parenting decisions will be a lot easier once we have clear guidelines.
You are invited to our Parenting Seminar on Oct. 24th. Our school sponsors these free seminars because we believe in more than just educating children. We equip parents to fulfill this great calling in their lives. Each Principle warrants its own seminar to do it justice. I will give an overview on the 10 Essential Principles, focusing on one or two of them for the evening. We will discuss how these can be applied in the home and at school. Free childcare is also provided so both parents can attend. Please RSVP to Ms. Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Legacy at 858-679-9949.

The Excellent Child
Katie Tseng is the director and founder of Legacy Montessori School and The Excellent Child Ministry. Her mission is to train up generations of young people that display excellence in skill and character, and who fulfill their calling for God’s purpose in their lives.
An educator for over 20 years, her collective experience as director, teacher and parent trainer, curriculum developer, and speaker contributes to her life’s calling: Building Generations of Young Achievers who are Passionate for God.
Beginning as a Sunday School Teacher, she served as the director of Children’s Ministry at the Brooklyn Community Christian Church in New York for two years. Building upon that experience, she continued to serve as Youth Director for nine more years until moving to San Diego in 1999.
With a BA and MA in Education from New York University, Ms. Tseng taught in the public school system in New York City and in San Diego for 8 years. In 2001, she was trained at the San Diego Montessori Teacher’s College. She went on to work at a local Montessori school, gaining experience before opening Cornerstone Christian Montessori School in 2002. There she spent the first three years in the classroom teaching alongside other teachers. In her years as an administrator, she created and refined Montessori curriculums, trained teachers and conducted parent education classes.
For her dedication to education and the lives of children and youth, Ms. Tseng was a recipient of the Woman’s History Month Award from the Sheepshead Bay Historical Society in New York, and numerous honorable mentions from the Mayor and Councilman.
As a speaker, Ms. Tseng combines practical advice with knowledge she’s gained as an educator, director, and most importantly, as a parent. She incorporates her extensive reading and research in the topics on which she speaks. Her messages are hopeful and timely, providing a much needed resource for parents seeking God’s very best for their children.
