  • Report Cards and PTA Spirit Night

    Posted by PAUL PACK at 4/24/2017

    Dear Liberty Families, 

      

    It's hard to believe that this is the final week of April.  Soon, students will be enjoying time in the pool and getting ready for summer break.  However, until then, we have some important events happening at Liberty Elementary School.

     

     

     

    1

     

    Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 26th, students will be bringing home their 3rd quarter report cards. Please take a moment to reflect with your student on his or her growth this year and set goals for the future.  Most important, this is a wonderful opportunity to praise your child and reinforce his or her effort and enthusiasum in school.  Typically, the end of the year in June can be hectic.  So spending the time this week to do this is encouraged. 

     

     

    1

     

    On Thursday, April 27th, our wonderful PTA will host Spirit Night at Velocity Wings from 4:00 - 8:00 PM.  Please come out and help support Liberty Elementary School.  Remember that part of the proceeds from all PTA Spirit Nights go directly back to the children at our school so please mention Liberty Elementary when placing an order for dine-in or carry out order!

    The Liberty PTA Garden Club did a fantastic job of cleaning up and improving the Liberty Kitchen Garden and Outdoor Classroom for the students to use this spring and beyond.  Please look at this update and pictures.  A big thank you to Lisa Morales for leading this project, and Meadows Farms Nursery and the South Riding Home Depot for directly supporting Liberty Elementary School students and the Outdoor Classrooms initiative. This week, Meadows Farms generously donated over $1,000 in labor and materials to clean up and beautify both garden areas. Home Depot donated $200 toward a garden shed that is housing all gardening tools being used by students.

    SOL Testing will take place starting Monday, May 8, 2017 for students in grades 3, 4 and 5.  Testing will take place throughout the month of May and could extend into early-June.  All students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades will take assessments in reading and math.  4th graders will also be tested in Virginia Studies and 5th graders will be assessed in science.  Specific schedules by class will be sent home by your child's teacher.

    We also wanted to give notice of an important parent session Loudoun County Public Schools is offering next month.  Mindful Parenting: Remaining Calm While Improving Family Dynamics will take place on Thursday, May 18, 2017 form 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the LCPS Administrative Bldg 21000 Education Ct, Ashburn.  Join Donilee Alexander-Goldsmith, LCPS School Social Worker, and Michelle Bogdan, LCSW, to learn about Mindfulness and Mindful Parenting. Mindfulness is noticing your thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations in the present moment without judgement. Learn how to utilize Mindfulness in your role as a parent to support your children in improving focus, reducing anxiety, and being more present in each moment

     

    As we head into next week's Teacher Appreciation Week, we want to thank you, our Liberty Community, for the tremendous impact you have on our children's education and the satisfaction of being an educator at our great school.

     

    1

     

     

    THANK YOU for attending and participating in important and memorable activities with your children including STEMmerday, Matball and classroom activities and student exhibitions of their work.

     

    THANK YOU in advance for the generous gifts and donations including school supplies for our students and classrooms.

     

    THANK YOU for being a PTA member and helping our organization show our students and teachers incredible respect and appreciation each day at school.

     

    THANK YOU for being our partner in your child's education and building positive relationships and communication with us as we all work hand-in-hand to create a wonderful learning environment for each educator, parent and student at Liberty.

      

    Have a great week.

  • Welcome Back

    Posted by PAUL PACK at 4/17/2017

    Dear Liberty Families, 

      

    We hope everyone had a wonderful spring break.  As we transitioned back to school today, students are getting ready for the final quarter of the school year with our last day being June 9, 2017.  The next nine weeks of school are sure to be exciting with some field trips, class pictures, Teacher Appreciation Week, SOL testing, 5th grade DARE Graduation and Promotion and much more. 

     

     

    1

     

    This week begins construction of an extension onto our building, which will be completed in early-2018.  The extension will add three new classrooms so Liberty will be able to offer full day kindergarten to students again in the 2018-19 school year.  The construction will decrease some of the blacktop area for our students during recess.  However, we have reopened the soccer fields for the spring so the children have space to play.  All of the construction will be contained behind temporary fencing as to not disrupt the school schedule or allow students to be in the construction area.  We will send updates about the construction process as needed.

     

     

    1

    Speaking of construction, our 5th graders built their own websites.  5th graders will host their Project-Based Learning (PBL) Exhibition to present their websites they built to help gain interest in science throughout the nation.  Students created authentic websites for children in the U.S. to learn our curriculum and inspire children to explore the amazing world of science.  We invite 5th grade parents to the cafeteria at 8:15 tomorrow morning.  Then, 5th graders will take their class panoramic picture at 9:30 AM.  We encourage 5th graders to dress their best for tomorrow's big day.

    SOL Testing will take place starting Monday, May 8, 2017 for students in grades 3, 4 and 5.  Testing will take place throughout the month of May and could extend into early-June.  All students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades will take assessments in reading and math.  4th graders will also be tested in Virginia Studies and 5th graders will be assessed in science.  Specific schedules by class will be sent home by your child's teacher.

    Posted by PAUL PACK at 3/17/2017

    Dear Liberty Families, 

     

    We had another fantastic week at Liberty.  Of course, the children were most excited about the days we were not in school...on our two snow days.

     

     

    1

     

    We want to remind parents that you must accompany and sign students in after the 7:50 AM bell.  This ensures that students are not unsupervised when entering the building after staff comes inside after arrival times.  Thank you.

     

     

    1

      

    Friday, March 24th is our Relay for Life Team's Movie Night Fundraiser at Liberty from 6:00 - 9:00 PM.  Students can join some of their favorite teachers and friends to watch Moana for a great cause - to raise money for cancer research.  An expected minimum donation is $25 and all checks should be made out to the American Cancer Society.

    1. Contact your childcare facility, if necessary, to find out what their procedures are for inclement weather.
    2. Review the information you have listed as emergency contacts and make sure that the numbers are updated.
    3. Make plans ahead of time and communicate them with your children so they understand what to expect during an early school dismissal due to inclement weather.
    4. Understand that school closings are for the safety of children throughout the district. While the condition of your neighborhood streets may be fine, other areas of the district may be experiencing harsher weather.

    What if bad weather arrives when children are in school?

    If severe weather strikes while students are in school, a decision to close school for the remainder of the day may be made. Activating the transportation system due to inclement weather takes time. In the event of a delayed opening, please stay tuned to the radio/TV stations in case some change in the weather causes schools to be closed for the day.
