Legacy Academy expands Preschool Options

By Jason Wert

Legacy Academy has announced they will be celebrating 30 years of serving the community with an expansion of their facility on State Highway 165.
The Legacy Preschool will be expanding their operations to include both their location at First Baptist Church in Branson and three new classrooms attached to the Legacy Academy campus. The school will then have openings in their classrooms for two year-olds, three-year-olds, and four-year-olds.
“So much prayer has gone into the steps needed for this growth, God is good and has been faithful to Legacy Preschool every step of the way,” Legacy Preschool Executive Director Kathryn Jones said in a statement.
Jones said the students of the preschool focus on kindergarten readiness through the “Kindergarten in Training” program. She said the students learn correct behavior for kindergarten classrooms like “sitting at the table with calm bodies, eating their food and not playing with it, talking quietly with their neighbors, staying in their own space and keeping their hands to themselves.” More information about Legacy Academy’s preschool program

National Mom’s group moves headquarters to Branson

An excerpt from an article by Jason Wert -Branson Tri-lakes News

An organization who mobilizes moms in the political arena has announced they are moving their national headquarters to Branson.

Moms for America announced the move at a public gathering on Saturday, May 14. The organization’s President, Kimberly Fletcher, said not only was the organization’s headquarters moving to Branson but she and her entire family would also be moving to the Ozarks. “Everyone asks me why we picked Branson and I answer that God actually picked it for us, ” Fletcher said at the event. “Once I got here, it was very clear to my why it’s Branson. I had always heard about the people and the community, then I visited last winter and saw that even the Christmas decorations are patriotic:! It’s a place where they love God, they respect family, they love freedom and every single show has a tribute to the military! This is absolutely where we want to be.

Moms For America is a grassroots organization founded in Dayton, Ohio in 2004. The organization describes themselves as a “national movement of moms reclaiming our culture for truth, family, freedom, and the Constitution.” They strive to empower moms, promote liberty, and raise patriots.”

“Moms are out there doing it effectively,” Fletcher said. “They’re hosting local and national political events, they’re running for office, they’re starting private schools, they’re hosting book clubs to get moms together. The coolest thing is that they’re all taking on things that matter most to them. They find what they’re passionate about and then we empower them to go out and get things done.”
