STAR Assembly Day - Students & Staff are encouraged to wear Spirit Wear or Nyack colors!!
Dear Liberty Families,
December is an exciting month at Liberty! We continue to celebrate our Liberty “STAR” students and staff members at Morning Program for their “Acts of Stardom”. We are very proud of them. We will continue to honor our Liberty STARs every month.
Our students have already shown how much they care by pajamas during the past few weeks. Our “Pajama Day” at Liberty was a huge success! We collected 100 pairs of pajamas for People to People. Thank you to our staff members for coordinating this wonderful community project. Liberty’s generosity is not stopping there. Our students will be collecting mittens to be given to families in need during this holiday season. Thank you for your continuing generosity. Great job Liberty families!!!
