    RECOGNITIONS: 

    Thank to all students, families, and staff members who helped encourage and create a positive STAAR testing environment this week! Our results from the first fifth grade round last month were excellent and we are expecting similar results from this week as well.

    Thank you to each adult who “chaperoned” Stadium Day and to each family that donated bottled water and/or a cooler! Your generosity helps make the day a safe success! Also, a big thank you to the entire staff, the Aramark Child Nutrition Liberty and District staffs for the cookout lunch, and of course, the Enrichment Team for all of their organization and efforts with the entire event!

    Thank you to the first grade volunteers for assisting with the Measurement Olympics! Thank you to the third grade chaperones for assisting with the Perot Museum field trip!

    Congratulations to Liberty Student Council for successfully raising $215.20 for the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) as its philanthropic cause for the 2017-2018 school year. Thank you to Student Council members Kendall Lee and Emily Loveland for their efforts in the idea and execution of selling American flag pins for $1.00 each to the Liberty students and staff. Way to go girls! Special thanks to everyone who supported the cause with their purchase and/or donations!
