    Dear Liberty Families, 

     

    Tomorrow evening, Saturday, December 8th from 6:20-7:20 PM, our Liberty PTA is hosting a skating Spirit Night at the Ashburn Ice House. Our PTA has always done an incredible job in organizing Spirit Nights for your family. This year, we have put an emphasis on promoting a handful of Spirit Nights that promote physical activity and family engagement as a supplement to the regular dining nights.

     

    1

    Part of the proceeds from your skating fee will go directly to our PTA and students. Please mention Liberty while paying. We will meet all of our Liberty students for a group picture at 6:15 PM so please arrive a few minutes early and check in at the Liberty PTA table before getting your skates from the Ice House Desk.

     

    Please also see the December PTA Newsletter with complete details about the Spirit Night and more. You can also visit our Parent Communication Website for weekly updates.

     

    See you tomorrow and have a great weekend.

    Dear Liberty Families, 

     

    It's hard to believe that we are already beginning October.  We had a wonderful September and now encourage parents to take advantage of the wonderful resources available from our school.

    If your family is in need for any assistance that Liberty Elementary or Loudoun County Public Schools can provide, we would like you to know that we have a wonderful Parent Liaison, Nannette Azzouz, who is here to help.  To learn more about her important role and Resource Assistance available, click here.

    We thank everyone for being involved in your child's education.  This Tuesday, October 2nd, our PTA will host its general meeting  at 3:00 PM in the school library.  We hope many of our parents can join us to discuss upcoming events for our families including our Children's Diversity Night.  We will also have a terrific PTA Parent Presentation of "Common Sense Media" from our technology integration specialist, Nichole Thomas.

    For 50 years, National PTA’s Reflection program has helped students explore their own thoughts, feelings and ideas, develop artistic literacy, increase confidence and find a love for learning that will help them become more successful in school and in life.  Each year, hundreds of thousands of students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create and submit original works of art in one or all of the available arts categories.

    Ellie’s Hats donates hats to children battling cancer and much more. In the spring of 2013 a little girl named Ellie was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. By the time she started kindergarten in the fall, she had lost most of her hair and was wearing hats to school every day. Ellie’s Hats was born after one of her teachers noticed how much cheer and individuality the hats brought to Ellie. He wanted to share that feeling with other children who suffered from childhood cancer and to also raise awareness. Please watch this video here to see the impact Ellie's Hats is having on our community.

    Tomorrow, September 28th, we encourage all our students to wear gold as Liberty is "Going Gold" to raise awareness of childhood cancer.  Please look this weekend to see if your student has a gold, or yellow, shirt to wear to school.

    We would like to invite you to become a part of our Liberty Elementary School Chorus! This ensemble is available to any fourth or fifth grader who is interested in singing, performing, and furthering their knowledge and application of music. Our first rehearsal is on Tuesday, October 2nd. Chorus will now be held after school from 2:45 – 3:30 PM, which will allow your child to not miss other classroom activities or experiences. Despite Chorus being held after school, the music team is volunteering their time and there is no cost to families for this after school activity. We do ask that all chorus members are picked up promptly at 3:30 PM as we cannot offer LCPS transportation. 
     
    Please visit our Chorus website here for information, dismissal procedures, performance dates, and requirements. You can sign up for chorus here. Chorus sign-up closes on Friday, September 28th. We look forward to beginning this musical opportunity with fourth and fifth grade! Feel free to contact Ms. Demember and/or Ms. Johnson with any questions.

    If you are considering referring your child for gifted services, join us to learn about elementary gifted education services available through Loudoun County Public Schools and the eligibility process for these services. Gifted Information Meetings are being held in September and all dates, times and locations can be viewed here.  The same information will be presented at each of the meetings, so it is not necessary to attend more than one session. In case of cancellations due to inclement weather, check the gifted education webpage.
