Kindergarten will perform at 6:15 pm and First Grade will perform at 8:30.
This past week, the Indiana State Board of Education approved the school accountability grades for the 2013/2014 school year. I would like to congratulate our students, staff, and families on achieving the letter grade of “A”! Although we will take time to celebrate our successes, we know that we must continue push forward and keep the same standard and expectation of excellence
for our students here at Liberty Park.
Cold weather is here and that means we need students dressed for the season. We still go out for recess when it is cold so we need students dressed appropriately. Please also put your child’s name on their coat, gloves, and hats. Our lost and found gets very full during the winter months so we want to make sure students have their winter gear.
For students, one of the College and Career Ready standards’ most important new requirements is that correct answers alone will not be enough. Correct answers are very important, but along with them there is a new set of “mathematical practices” that teachers will expect from students. This is part of their preparation for 21st century jobs. More information>>>.
You are invited to be a PAC Parent!
Does your child ever take too much time to do homework… need an extra boost of self-esteem…use social media…or choose not to follow your directions? As a parent, do you ever feel like you could use some support from other parents who have the same concerns with their children as you? If so, you are encouraged to register for our upcoming PAC (Parents are the Core) sessions. Throughout the 2014-15 school year, six sessions will be offered for parents. Topics include: how to determine what makes your child special and strategies for building these strengths, homework tips, discipline, your child and social media, and information Warren Township parents need to know. The sessions will be held from 600-7:30 p.m. at school throughout the school year. Free supervised activities will be offered for children, ages 5-12, who attend with their parents. PAC Kids is open only to children whose parents are attending PAC. Activities will include crafts, computer games and activities, game nights, gym activities, fun projects, snacks, and entertainment. If you are unable to attend the session at our school, the topics will be offered at every other Warren Township elementary and intermediate academy. Call the school office or check the Warren Township website for this information. PAC Web Page>>> Contact the school office to register for a session.

Aiden Wildrick in second grade is our Bucket Filler of the Week! While walking out to buses, Aiden noticed one of his peers had dropped several of her personal belongings on the floor. Instead of hurrying past, he showed civility by stopping and helping her retrieve all of her items. Thanks, Aiden, for highlighting the “C” for “Civility” in our C.O.R.E. way of being at Liberty Park!
Holly Jolly Fest Vendor Application
The Liberty Park Elementary PTA is pleased to announce our Holly Jolly Fest to be held on Friday, December 5th, 6:00-9:00 p.m. This will be our 12th annual celebration and we are excited about the activities we have planned this year. This is a fundraising event for the PTA that helps fund things such as: teacher and staff appreciation, parties and treats for the students, library books, school supplies, and projects throughout the school year. Through our Holly Jolly Fest, we hope to build school spirit and pride for Liberty Park. We also look forward to bringing our surrounding community together at one event.
This year we will be opening up the entire school for booth space rental for crafters and demonstrators. All vendors will be located in the main hallways. This space can be used to sell products or promote your business. Booth spaces are at least 8 X 5 feet and will be located throughout the school. Other Holly Jolly Fest activities may include: live auction, give-a-ways, games for the kids, bounce houses, pictures with Santa, and dinner.
Liberty Park is fortunate to have a partnership with Texas Roadhouse, 1405 N Shadeland. On designated nights, 10% of your bill goes back to Liberty Park. Watch for our next date.
