Message from the Principal : Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger

  January, 2020



Dear Liberty Families,


Best wishes to all for a happy and healthy 2020!  I hope all of our families enjoyed a relaxing holiday break.  Our grades 3-5 Winter concert will be on Thursday, January 16th at 7pm at Nyack High School.  Please join us!  Thank you to Mrs. Philhower for all your hard work preparing the children. 


January is a busy month at Liberty!  Our character trait for this month is Cultural Awareness.  We will be discussing the courage of Martin Luther King during this month.  We will also be honoring students and staff members each month for showing “Random Acts of STARdom”.  Those individuals are highlighted at Morning Program and on our hallway bulletin board.  We are looking forward to adding to our STARs during this month.


We are very proud of our fifth grade students who will be completing the DARE program with Officer Norm Peters.  We will celebrate their accomplishments at their DARE graduation on Thursday, January 23rd at 9:30am.  Congratulations fifth graders, their teachers and families.


Just a gentle reminder:  Please DO NOT send food or treats into your child’s classroom to be shared with the class.  Several students have allergies and we want all students to be safe.  If you have any questions, please ask the classroom teacher or myself.  Thank you for your cooperation with this very important  issue.


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.

MONDAY, JANUARY 20th– Martin Luther King Day


Once again, our Lost and Found baskets are growing with large amounts of clothing.  If your child is missing articles of clothing, please check our Lost and Found.  Going forward, it is helpful if articles of clothing are labeled so they can easily be returned when found.


Happy winter!



Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger
