  • End of the Year Wellness News and Events

    Liberty Parents,

    I wanted to share Wellness News/ Events as we head into the end of the school year.

    We will have our year-end Pacer this week (beginning tomorrow). Our goal is for 90% of the school to improve in their Cardiovascular Endurance (big term that means heart and lung power). If we reach this goal, we will have Rita’s (Italian) Water Ice on…

    Five Star Track and Field Day which is on Thursday, May 29th . Our K-2nd graders will have their events in the morning (9-11) and our 3rd-6th graders will have their events in the afternoon (12:30-2:30). If you are interested in volunteering for the day (or a portion of the day), please email Mr. Smith: rsmith1@worthington.k12.oh.us. All parents are welcome to come out and cheer on the participants.

    We have many students that have walked and biked to school this year!! I challenged the students in August to try for 100 days. The reward for ‘100 days of walking/ biking to school’ is gym time 11:45-12:15 on May 27th. Mr. Smith will have a special healthy treat for you as well! Students must bring their “slip” marking their 100 days (you can find the slip on the Wellness Website – first blog post at bottom of page – by copying and printing image OR by finding a slip on the Wellness bulletin board outside the gym doors). I am on day# 138 (and mile 552) today (so will be enjoying the treat too!) – it has been a BLAST through all the seasons.

    On May 28th our 3rd graders will once again be traveling to the Memorial Golf Tournament for practice and Pro Am Day!!!! We will spend some time before talking about the First Tee program which gets golf out to ALL students in a FUN, informative way. Our K-2s spent three days in the unit working on putting, chipping, and discussing the core value of integrity (doing the right thing – even when no one is watching).

    Make sure to follow the SEE principle this month to perform at your best! S leep the right amount every night, E at power foods, and E xercise (at least) 60 minutes a day.

    As always, contact me if you have any questions.

    Mr. Rob Smith

    Building Security and After-School Access

    In response to a district-wide initiative to enhance building safety and security, building entrances are now secured throughout the school day and visitors will be “buzzed” in and asked to sign in at the Office at any time from 8:00-3:00. 

    Returning regularly for forgotten supplies and homework assignments is discouraged;  however, in an effort to accommodate families, Office staff will respond to the buzzer until 3:30 and will permit access to classrooms if teachers are present and available to assist. 

    Technology in the Classroom that Works

    Students will not be permitted to use cell phones and IPods during the school day and should be discouraged from bringing such devices to school.  In accordance with Worthington goals and policies, use of technology in the classroom will be a continued focus, therefore IPads, Kindles, and other devices used specifically for the purpose of learning are acceptable.

  • Collection for Ronald McDonald House

     

    We would like to encourage families to continue to save pop tabs to be given to the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio.  They were grateful to receive the nearly 40 pounds of tabs our students brought in last year!

    They also appreciate any donation of unopened sample size toiletries.  Thank you for supporting this special cause.

  • VOLUNTEER BADGE APPLICATION

     
    Effective with the 2012-13 school year, the district instituted a five-year expiration cycle for school volunteer badges. Different badge colors will be used each year to help district personnel recognize current volunteers.

     

    You will notice that this year’s version has changed to a red-bordered design. It also has an imprinted expiration date of 6/2018. Last year’s blue-bordered badge was imprinted with a 6/2017 expiration date.

     

    Volunteers who have a badge without an imprinted expiration date may visit HR to have a new background check run and a new badge created. Our staff is happy to do this Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. This is a gradual process – we realize it will take some time to make everyone current with their badges. No rush, no panic.

     

    All volunteers who need a current badge must present the application (found under Quick Links) in person to the HR Dept. Please note: it may take up to a week for the background check to be completed and the badge sent to the school.  (This form is also available at Worthington Education Center reception desk.)

     

    We encourage all parents and other volunteers who need badges to get processed early in the school year. Field trips and other fun volunteer opportunities , which require a badge, can come up on the calendar pretty quickly.

     

    Thanks for ALL you do!!!
