    Our local libraries are a great place with many new programs for children and adults alike.

    Check out:

    One of my favorite resources for parents is: You can use their ABC directory to research a wide variety of topics

    I have resources for several excellent therapists and counselors in the area. Please call if you need a reference.

    Lunch payment: The link for MyPaymentsPlan is now located under For Families on the top bar of the school website.

     You can find  information/flyers at  and the Liberty PTA Facebook page.

    If I can help you with anything, please call, send an email or stop by!!

    My favorite parenting quote: Kids don't do what you say they do what you do.

Donation Station

This project is aimed at matching specific needs anonymously.

The way it works is this: when the Family Resource Center hears about a child or family needing anything, it will send out an email to all parents who have volunteered to be on this list. Whoever has the needed item, will hit “reply all” and let everyone know that they’ve got it covered and bring in the item to the Center.

Please feel free to contact the Center if you either need donations or if you would like to be on the list. Please email me at

Estación de Donación
El objeto de este proyecto es para ayudar las familias con necesidades específicas - de una forma anónima.

La forma en que funciona es así: cuando el centro de recursos de la familia oye acerca de un niño o una familia que necesitan de algo, se envía un mensaje de correo electrónico a todos los padres que han ofrecido estar en la lista. Quien tiene el elemento necesario, golpea "responder a todos" y así todos saben que estar solucionado.

No dude en ponerse en contacto con el centro si usted necesita donaciones o  si le gustaría estar en la lista por favor, enviarme un correo electrónico a

Muchas gracias.
