    WELCOME NEXT YEAR'S KINDERGARTEN PARENTS
     

    Our "New Kindergarten Parent Information Night" for 2014-15 incoming Kindergarten Parents will be held on Thursday, April 24, at 6:30 p.m. at Liberty Elementary School. Come meet our Kindergarten teachers, principal, and support staff, tour the school, and obtain important information regarding the Kindergarten transition and experience.

    This is a "Parent/Guardian" meeting only. We anticipate that in August, students will be asked to come in to meet with their teachers. The 2014-15 school calendar begins for students on Monday, August 18. Kindergarten will phase in half the class on the 18th and half on the 19th, and the entire class will attend on Wednesday, August 20.

    3600 Seconds Blog

    Parents,
    It's been very nice outside feeling the warmth of the sun and seeing the snow and ice melt. We will see how long it lasts...

    Today, we gave students the option to run a mile outside at recess! We have been patiently waiting for the temperatures to cooperate with us. Running a mile today will help the students achieve one of the goals on the Worthington Active Family Challenge (next week is the deadline to turn in). Please see the below link for more information:

    **Today we are also finishing our heart/ fitness month. The students learned and participated in activities that strengthened their cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength, core strength, and flexibility. I found a very cool app that let us put the 'workouts' to music. For those of you that have apple products, the app is called "seconds" and is free. We "create new timer; click circuit training timer; set number of sets to whatever we choose (7  in class); click time and then duration and set to 1 minute; choose music from itunes; click timer again; click rest between intervals to desired time (we chose :25 seconds); click timer again; then click start and AWAY you will go". We have talked about being the 'personal trainer' in the family by teaching the exercises and getting others involved. It's a FUN, worthwhile activity that I have tried at home with my family! Enjoy the weekend. - Mr. 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.

  • BOX TOPS & TYSON A+ LABELS

    Liberty is collecting Box Tops & Tyson A+ Labels this school year.  We have earned over $21,000 since 2004. Last year, we received over $2,700.  Thank you so much for bringing them in.

    We will have one more collections this year ( May 8.) The teacher of the winning class will choose the treat for his/her students.

    Thanks,

    Julie Burgess

  • 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!!!
