The Character Trait for next week is Empathy!
A big thank you to everyone who shopped the PTA fall book fair last week as you contributed to the $3,236 earned for our school! Another big thank you to each family who donated to the Stuff the Pantry campaign and earned us 1,147 points with fifth grade contributing the highest at 318 points! Thank you to the chaperones of the first grade field trip this week! Thank you to Sherriee Cole for her coordination of the PTA student birthday celebrations! Thank you to each of the volunteers who supervised the lunch shifts on Thursday! Thank you to our recent WATCH D.O.G.S Matt Amidon, Matt Gonzalez, and Todd Reinders!
Please note that all donation drives, fundraisers, and philanthropic efforts are completely optional. They assist our campus and broader community, and are appreciated, but are not required.
Please be sure to keep clear the accessible crosswalk on the west side of Liberty where pick up dismissal for grades second through fifth takes place as it is an actively utilized crosswalk by a student and parent who needs it at that time. Thank you.
One day each month the PTA helps cover the lunch periods for the teachers so they can enjoy some well deserved time together. We are shifting our December lunch coverage to Tuesday, December 3, so the teachers can make use of the Chili's Spirit Day and have lunch ordered from the restaurant AND support our school! WIN WIN! We need volunteers to help make this happen! There are 30 minute time slots are available for all grade levels including Discovery Academy. Please help and signup today! December Lunch Coverage *Reminder* that you must have a current background check on file with the district in order to volunteer.* The application is available on the district homepage under the Parents tab and then volunteer/background check.
