Message from the Principal

 February, 2024

Dear Liberty Families,

February is another busy month at Liberty. Our Liberty PTA is sponsoring a
Sweetheart Dance on Friday, February 9 from 6:30-8pm at Liberty. Our
students will participate in the Rockland Read-in on Friday, February 16 th .
Students can wear their pajamas and enjoy reading books. We will also kick
off our “Read a book with Hook.” Hook is our district mascot and we are
encouraging our students to read for pleasure. We will be acknowledging
them each month.

Our theme for this month is Compassion. We will be highlighting outstanding
individuals as February is Black History Month. We will have spirit days each
Friday during February to celebrate Black History Month. We will also
celebrate Presidents’ Day. These events will occur during Morning Program
and in individual classrooms.

***PLEASE NOTE: School is closed February 19 to February 23***

We are asking for your support with these issues. Our morning supervision
begins at 8:00am. 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. Also,
several students have been bringing cell phones and wearing smart watches.
They do create a distraction during the school day. We are asking students
to keep them off during the school day. If they need to contact their
families, we have a student phone in the office. We appreciate your

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

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Mrs. Ellen M. Rechenberger
