Message from the Principal : Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger

Dear Liberty Families,

February is another busy month at Liberty.  We begin our month with our PTA sponsored     Book Fair on February 7th and 8th.  Each class will have a time to browse.  Thank you to our    PTA parents for providing this opportunity for our students.  The timing is perfect as we will participate in the Rockland Read-in on Friday, February 17th.

 We honored our Liberty Acts of Stardom for the month.  We are very proud of our STAR    students and staff who are working hard to be acknowledged at our monthly assembly.

 Our theme for this month is Communication.  We will celebrate the birthdays of Abraham    Lincoln and George Washington this month.  We will also be highlighting outstanding individuals as February is Black History Month. These events will occur during Morning Program and in   individual classrooms.

 ******PLEASE NOTE******

School is closed February 20 to February 24

We are asking for your support with these issues.  Our morning supervision begins at 8am.  Please do not drop off your child before that time as we want them to be safe at all times.  Please make sure that we have updated contact information.  In the event of early dismissal, delayed openings or school closure, we need to have accurate information to alert you.  We   appreciate your cooperation.

Winter is upon us, so we would like to remind you that we still go outdoors for recess when     the temperature and the wind chill factor are 25 degrees or above.  We also consider the          conditions of the playground equipment and blacktop area in our decision.  It is essential to make sure that your child dresses appropriately for school and outdoor recess.  Thank you      for your cooperation.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

 Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger
