Administrator's Message:

The 2nd Nine Weeks of School has officially begun. We are so proud of everyone's hard work and the growth that our students have made. Since we still can't have visitors in the building, we are in the process of creating a 1st Nine Weeks Awards celebration to share with families. Watch for a link on ClassDojo!


October was a busy month!


We have started our WIN (Whatever I Need) time each day. Students get reading and math small group based on what they need.


Red Ribbon week was a success! We did daily dress up days where students earned prizes and Mrs. Anderson did lessons with all classrooms.


We are here to support you and your child and their success as learning this year. Please reach out to us at anytime with questions or concerns.


Ms. Tallant and Mr. Hewitt

Communication & Information

Our teachers do an excellent job of communicating information regarding our programs and activities going on in our school. Here is way you can stay informed proactively:

  • -DOJO (classroom codes are available from your child's teacher)
  • -Teacher, School and District Websites (https://ldes.tcs.k12.nc.us/)
  • -LDES Facebook (Liberty Drive Elementary)
  • -LDES YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaw50nIgMtg4D8rPhOgH9zA
  • -LDES Twitter Accounts
  • -Newsletters, Information and Flyers
  • A phone call or an email is an efficient way to communicate with your child’s teacher. Please remember that our teachers are with students throughout the day and will return the call/email as soon as they are able. At times, this may be the next school day.

    Social Emotional Learning with Second Step

    Our students have begun the Second Step Curriculum in their classrooms during Morning Meeting. Second Step is a schoolwide social-emotional learning program is designed to teach children social emotional skills to help them get along with peers, manage emotions and succeed in school throughout their lives.
