    One day each month the PTA helps cover the lunch periods for the teachers so they can enjoy some well-deserved time together. Our next opportunity to do this is Thursday, October 10, and 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!  October 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.  

    It is time to clean out your closets!! Liberty Elementary School PTA is partnering with Clothes Bin: Clothes and Shoes Recycling Bins to protect our environment and raise funds for our school. See the flier in the next Eagle folder for all the items that are acceptable donations. Drop off items in the green bin located in our southwest parking lot. Liberty will receive a dollar amount per pound of textiles collected. It is a win-win situation for our environment and our school!

    GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS:

    The end of the first nine weeks grading period is actually approaching quickly.  Now would be a great opportunity to log into Skyward Family Access and check on completed, or not, assignments and graded work.

    It would be helpful at home to repeat our school message to students about reporting any unwanted, disrespectful, inappropriate, etc. type action between students to the nearest adult as immediately as possible.  This approach helps with intervening in a timely manner, addressing the parties involved, receiving accurate information as much as possible, and applying meaningful consequences.  Situations that are delayed or left unreported are not helpful and over time could lead to an on-going and frustrating experience. 

    Calling all Future Jaguars!  Tonight is Junior Jags night at Neal E. Wilson Stadium at FMHS.  We invite you to join us as we cheer our Jaguars on to victory over the Lewisville Fighting Farmers.  We would like you to bring your families to the tailgate and stay for the game where you will be able to run on the field at pregame and receive free admission to the game.  Print the attached ticket and show your pride by wearing a school spirit shirt or Jaguar spirit wear for free Junior Jag admission to the game.  Here is a rundown for the evening:

    5:00-6:30-Tailgate with food , drinks and tailgating games open to everyone
