    The Holidays are approaching quickly which means time away from school and a great time to make an appointment for your student to get that Tdap booster shot which the State of Ohio requires for all incoming 7th graders.  Please bring the completed form, found to the left under "Quick Links," to the Liberty school office so we may update our records.  Thank you for continued help and we hope you and your family have a wonderful winter holiday!!

    Each month parents will receive a one-page snapshot with information about the New State Assessments.  Our goal is to ensure all parents are not only aware of the assessments, but have the information they need to help engage with their children's teachers in conversations and dialogue about what they are doing and how families can help. Contained in this bulletin will be links to additional resources should you want more information.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to your children's teachers and building principal if you would like more information.

    This year our students will be participating in the new state online computer based assessments in English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science.  These assessments are fully aligned with our newly adopted Worthington Curriculum.  Because this is our first year with these new assessments there is a lot that is new.  We are confident in our teachers and our students and feel strongly that they will be prepared.
    The December bulletin is located under "Quick Links."

  • chromebook                           Technology

    We have experienced a lot of technology changes in our district this year.  One of the most significant has been the new devices our elementary buildings have been given to replace outdated computer equipment.  Our students are working on Chromebooks which are lightweight laptops designed to provide access to internet resources. Many of our students are already using these on a regular basis for classroom projects and they love them. They are portable so students can move them and work together with their peers.

    Some of you have asked about the need to provide your child with their own device. Please see this link for information about the district’s “bring your own device” policy and for more information on Chromebooks.

    Project MORE is a highly effective reading intervention for struggling second and third grade readers.  Each Project MORE child receives one on one instruction 4 times per week for 32 weeks.  The instruction is delivered by trained mentors who follow a customized lesson plan prepared for each child in advance by the Project MORE Coordinators.  Project MORE is a perfect program to help children meet the requirements of the Third Grade Reading Guarantee and the program is very mentor friendly.  Mentors experience a one hour training, a brief background check, and they're ready to serve.  The Worthington Schools are thrilled with this program.  It's making a huge difference in the reading performance of our elementary students.  We are in desperate need of mentors.  Please contact Liberty Project MORE Coordinators Bonnie Melchi or Jessica Schiefer if you can spare 30 minutes a week to help deliver this critically important program.
