  • PROJECT MORE MENTORS NEEDED 
    Liberty Elementary is currently seeking mentors for our Project MORE program. Project MORE is a volunteer reading mentoring program for students with disabilities, or who have demonstrated significant difficulties with reading. Students work one on one with a mentor for 30 minutes, 4 times per week. We have seen the incredible impact of 1:1 mentoring on our students' reading performance. 

     There are only two requirements for volunteering as a Project MORE mentor:
        1. A willingness to positively impact the life of a child.
        2. 30 spare minutes each week to work 1:1 with a student.

    During the 2014-2015 school year, Liberty more than tripled the number of students who received the benefits of Project MORE. We would love to continue expanding our program, but we cannot achieve this goal without more mentors who are willing to donate their time and support to students.

    For more information about Project MORE, watch this 6 minute video which features photos from Project MORE sessions in Worthington Schools!

    If you feel that serving in the role of a Project MORE mentor at Liberty is a good fit for you, please contact Jessica Schiefer
    (jschiefer@wscloud.org), or Bonnie Melchi (bmelchi@wscloud.org) for more information.
     
    Thank you in advance for considering joining our program.

  • Walk/Bike to School Days 

     
    Join us on our first walk/bike to school in the 2015-2016 school year.  The first one will take place Wednesday, September 9th and will continue every second and fourth Wednesdays in each month.  There will be no walk/bike to school days in December and January due to weather.

    Walk/Bike to school is event where students, parents, or whole families can walk or bike to school in the morning.  When each student gets to school they will receive a token.  The first walk/bike to school day each child will receive a chain so that all the tokens can be put on it (they are small and easily lost).  The students will also sign their names under their grade level so that each student who participates in all walk/bike to school will get a prize at the end of the school year.

    There will be two walk and bike to school days where each child who walks or bikes will get a healthy snack donated from Whole Foods and Fresh Thyme.  On those days there will be no token given out.  Those dates will be announced ahead of time. 

    There will be three depots this year throughout the neighborhood so for those parents who cannot walk with their children, but need an adult to accompany them, we have someone to do that.  We want every student to be able to participate.

    The biking depot will be at the corner of Seabright and Plains.  Please look for the adult with the Liberty Leopards blue flag and orange vest. The two walking depots will be at the corner of Ibson and Seabright, as well as on the corner or Waco and Plains.  The times for each depot will be announced before each event.

    For any questions regarding this event, please feel free to contact Regan Versele at reganversele@gmail.com so that we can answer all your concerns and comments. We look forward to seeing all your faces!

  • Food Service Account Information

    Any lunch balance (positive or negative) in your child's lunch account will be carried over to the next school year. Sixth grade lunch balances will follow students to middle school. Lunch PIN numbers will also follow the student to the next grade level. Parents need to fill out a new free and reduced lunch application each year for their student.  Lunch applications will be available on-line or paper copies will be available by August 2015.
