Kentucky Kids' Day

 

On Tuesday, September 22nd (Kentucky Kids' Day) we will be passing out the new Liberty shirts to ALL the students at Liberty!  We need some help with this fun job! We will be going to each class to tell them about Kentucky Kids' day and then personally give each student his/her new shirt.

 

The Grade Levels have selected their time slots and they are as follows:

8:00-8:30  4th Grade

8:30-9:00  1st Grade

9:00-9:30  5th Grade

9:30-10:00 Kindergarten

10:00-10:30  2nd Grade

1:30-2:00   3rd Grade

 

Our volunteer time slots have been adjusted to fit these distribution times.  Please note: Each time slot starts 15 minutes BEFORE you will actually be distributing shirts so you can be briefed on the procedures.

 

If you want to volunteer to help during your child's grade level time slot, that is fine.  We just ask that you help with the rest of the classes/grade levels that occur during that time slot.  Visit  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f44a8ac28a46-kentucky to sign up.

If you have any questions, please contact Tifany Perrine, VP of Volunteers, at golibertyhawks@gmail.com

 

Grant Help

 

Hey folks! Liberty kids need your help: we have a grant to purchase some equipment to help kids who need to "move around at school" to continue to learn while they are moving! It's not a lot of money so it won't go far. The grant has to also include an aspect of nutrition. Therefore, we will incorporate a "Taste it Tuesday" which will give kids an opportunity to try nutritious foods that maybe they've never been exposed to before. Would anyone have access to fresh fruits, veggies or herbs that you could donate once a month? Would anyone have an exercise bike, an exercise "ball" (those giant ones for stabilization and balance), or a Bosu ball (1/2 ball) you don't want around the house anymore? I will take them off your hands!  Also, if anyone feels passionately about this and wants to help me coordinate, feel free to contact Kaye at kaye.hughes@twc.com.

Picture Day

 

Fall pictures will be held Tuesday, September 29th.  Holifield Photography will be taking individual pictures that day.  Please bring your best smile!

PTA 5K

The PTA 5K will be held on Sunday, October 18th this year at Coldstream Park. Once again, there are Free Training programs, which include the Kids Marathon program. Registration forms are coming home next week, and you can also register online at www.PTA5K.com .  Don't forget to select "Liberty Elementary" as the PTA to benefit. Proceeds from this event come back to our school! If you are interested in working the PTA 5K, please contact Jessica Henz (jesshenz@twc.com). We need to have at least 2 volunteers help at the event in order to receive our part of the proceeds.

 

A Note from Ms. Chaffin:

 

Do you want to stay up to date with upcoming Drama related opportunities and/or events?  Any parent or student can text @chaffin to 81010 for updates.

 

A Note from Ms. Roberts:

 

I have talked to many classes about PE homework.  It is to encourage things at home that are fun for families and involve doing things that maybe you have never done.  I told them to find a creek and leap over a creek.  It’s a natural way to learn how to leap!:)  I also talked to them about skipping rocks in a pond or body of water and making a pathway of rocks through a creek or a pond.  This is obviously not a requirement, but an incentive to get outside and try new things. Hope you have fun! Tell me about it with a parent signature and get a trip to the prize box or a hawk feather!! 

Also, skating for 3rd-5th grades will begin Nov 4th, so be looking for permission slips in October. Thanks!
