Message from the Principal : Mrs. Ellen Rechenberger

  June 15, 2020


Dear Incredible Families of Liberty Elementary School,


I would like to take this time to THANK YOU all for all you did throughout this period of Home Instruction. This was unprecedented and historical and your response and support made it work! Together, we truly did get through this. I would also like to thank an incredible and heroic staff for their tireless work. These past months have brought out the best in our school community. When faced with incredible challenges, you all responded with love, compassion and trust. I stand in awe of that and thank you for it. I would like to congratulate our fifth graders. The class of 2020 was an exceptional group of students and they are on to great things in Middle School and beyond. I look forward to stopping in the Middle School and checking up on them in the years to come.


The parent portal will be open at 9am on Tuesday, June 16 for report cards to be viewed.


As we end our school year, we say good-bye to Mrs. Elaine Philhower and Mrs. Marie Broadley.  We wish both of these very dedicated educators health and happiness in their retirements.  You will both be missed but will always be part of our Liberty Family.


I know that many of you have many questions about what next year will look like. In the coming weeks and month we anticipate receiving guidelines for next year from the Governor’s Office. You can expect communication of what that will look like over the summer from the Superintendent’s office.


Class placements will be emailed home the last week of August as always. I wish you all a healthy and safe summer. In the eyes of your children I remain convinced that a bright future lies ahead for all of us. I hope you all get some time to relax and have some fun because you deserve it. Be well and stay safe!
