*We will also need full/unopened 2 Liter bottles (soda pop, lemonade, fruit punch, etc.) and new/unopened boxes of cereal for the games as well as baked goods for the Cake Walk. The 2 Liter bottles and boxes of cereal can be brought into the office anytime leading up to the actual day of the carnival. We ask that the baked goods only be brought to school on October 21st. The baked goods can be homemade or store bought, but please note that containers will not be returned to you.
Once again we will be offering Vendor Tables. They will be on a “First come, First Served Basis.” Each table costs $50.00 (or $30.00 with a donation to our silent auction of merchandise valued at $20.00+) and they will be located in the School Cafeteria and outside (if needed). We do have a Vendor Contract that we will need you to complete if you are interested (attached). For more information please contact Tifany Perrine at email@example.com.

If so, please contact VP of Fundraising Leslie Yeast at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Breakfast Eating Competition:
Does your student eat breakfast at school? Starting on October 17th through November 16th we will be having a contest for a Liberty student to win a bike with a helmet. Every time your student eats a breakfast meal at school their name will be automatically entered into the competition for a chance to win! The bike will be on display at Liberty Elementary starting the week of October 17th. Click here!
Please don’t forget the Reflections deadline is looming—Oct. 21st—all entries must be in the front office by 3pm. This year’s theme is “What’s Your Story?” There are six Arts categories to enter: literature, film, photography, visual arts, dance choreography and music composition. This is a fun project and contest to get your student excited and involved with Art! Rules for the general contest and category-specific rules can be found at http://kypta.org/programs/reflections/.
Entry forms must accompany each Reflections entry. Forms can be found outside the library, outside the art room, in the front office. Top 2 winners in each category will advance to the district competition. Questions? Contact Kaye Hughes at 859-509-1486.

Handy Dandy PE Scoop!
Try new veggies! Eat 3 veggies a day! Trip to the prize box for students who are trying new foods or eating three veggies a day. The My Plate page (attached) is a great way to keep a record of this. I want to make a beautiful bulletin board with pictures of new foods and ways that Liberty Gymies are learning to be choosy about the nutrition that goes in their one and only special body. Be creative and take a picture of your child trying a new food! The foods they learn to eat at an early age will help their development that can last throughout their lives.
* There will be Skating for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades November 14th-December. Permission slips will be sent out in mid-October.
* Wellness Committee Meeting- November 1st at 3:00 conference Room
