Message from the Principal : Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger

November, 2018

Dear Liberty Families, 

Thank you to all our wonderful PTA parents for the successful Trunk or Treat event. It was a great evening for both students, staff and their families.

November is a busy month at Liberty. This year, we are focusing each month on one of the 7Cs as we prepare our students for the future. Our focus for the month of November is COLLABORATION. We will also be discussing the responsibilities of being citizens of our community and of our school as we highlight the sacrifices Americans have made for our country in our celebration of Veteran’s Day. 

On Monday, November 5 at 6pm, Liberty will have its second Multicultural Festival. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the different cultures that make us special. Families have the opportunity to share food, music, artifacts and native dress from the many cultures that make up our Liberty family. Please join us!

On Thursday, November 15th we will be having our Science Fair. Our students will learn from community     members in the field as well as their peers on various Science topics.

Our students are reaching out to our community this month. We are collecting canned and non-perishable foods. We will also have our annual “Pajama Day” on Wednesday, November 21st.   Students are able to wear their   pajamas to school and bring a new set of pajamas for a child less fortunate. We do ask that students do not wear slippers as it is a safety concern. Thank you for supporting these two good causes.

As the weather gets colder and the children are wearing their winter coats, hats and gloves, please help us by labeling your child’s clothing. Our “Lost and Found” is already growing. We encourage you to check our lost and found baskets when you visit the building.

During car dismissal, please do not park your car and get out of the car as it is causing a traffic jam. We also ask for the safety of all students, that you do not open your car door into the traffic circle. Safety is our number one priority! If you are changing your child’s dismissal plans, please send a note to the classroom teacher. Thank you for your cooperation.

Other important dates to remember:

                                                          NO SCHOOL: Tuesday, November 6th-Election Day

                                                          NO SCHOOL: Monday, November 12th-Veteran’s Day

                                                         NO SCHOOL: Thursday, Nov. 22 & Friday, Nov. 23-Thanksgiving

We wish all our families a “Happy Thanksgiving.” I hope it brings all of you enjoyable time with your loved ones.

 Sincerely yours,


 Mrs. Ellen M. Rechenberger
