Weekly Eagle Information

  • All Angel Tree gifts were picked up this morning.  Once again I was told how much our Liberty generosity is appreciated.  The LISD social worker smiled when she saw all the gifts under our tree and then asked, “Are all of these things intended for my families?” 

     

    I know I have told you this on other occasions but want to say it again.  Please know that your kindness is not taken for granted and truly makes a difference.  Thank you for your help and support of our Liberty Angel Tree tradition!  Happy holidays to you and your family, Marinell Clark

    Now is a great time for students to work on and submit entries for the 2018 LISD Student Film Fest, Reel Voices. An informational flier is attached to this callout.

     

    Our very own Liberty Student Council is once again making a difference by adopting the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) as a philanthropic cause for the 2017-2018 school year. Student Council members Kendall Lee and Emily Loveland presented the idea and it was overwhelmingly adopted by the members. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. Please consider helping our students by purchasing an American flag pin for $1.00 or by simply offering a donation! Members will have pins available for purchase before school and have a table set up for donation collections at upcoming Liberty events in the coming months. Every little bit helps so we thank you for considering helping this cause with 100% of all donations going directly to their main offices headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. Donations fall under the tax deductibility code 501(c)(3). Thank you for your consideration!

     

    All items in the PTA workroom need to be picked up please before they are disposed of, including items you may be missing from luncheons and events. Please stop by during regular school hours.

     

    The last Eagle Folder distribution prior to winter break will be Tuesday, December 19. All items will need to be submitted for inclusion by noon Thursday, December 14, to the main office.

     

    If you are planning to present items and gifts of appreciation to staff members prior to break (which are greatly appreciated), please do so by Wednesday, December 20, as the staff has been asked to clean up and prepare their areas for winter break by then. As stated earlier, the staff is welcomed to leave right after the students Thursday and we want to help them to do so.

     

    In order to best meet any needs prior to break and to allow all of us an opportunity to spend uninterrupted time with family and friends, please wrap up any communication between school and home by noon Thursday, December 21. Thank you.

     

    Thursday, December 21, will be an early release for everyone at 11:45am. Except for ESD, our campus will officially close at 12:00pm. All ESD families are encouraged to pick up their students as soon as possible that day as well. The building will be closed until Monday, January 8, at which time classes will resume.

     

    From all of the staff at Liberty, we wish each of you a relaxing, safe, and family filled break for the winter holidays. In the spirit of the season, it is hoped that we will all take time to realize the goodness of our world, the kindness shown each other, recognize the efforts of those who are helpful, and remember that we are all human beings with feelings and emotions, lives and responsibilities, differences and similarities. Thank you to each of you who are communicative, supportive, involved, and respectful. School will resume at 7:45am on Monday, January 8, 2018.
