THE PATRIOT PARENT CONNECTION

2021-2022: Seventh Edition - Week of September 13

Dear Liberty Families,


This week is Football Spirit Week, and we encourage students to participate in our themed days outlined below. We are very proud of our currently undefeated Football Patriots, who will take on a tough Vickery Creek opponent on Tuesday. Come out and support our players and cheerleaders!


On a different note, we need the help of our parents regarding a social media trend on TikTok, encouraging vandalism and theft of items in school restrooms. As a staff, we strive very hard to make Liberty a second home for our students, and this treatment of our school property is not only against the FCS Code of Conduct, but it is also uncharacteristic of who we aim to be as a school community. Please talk to your students about if and how they are allowing social media to influence their choices and behaviors. Students caught defacing or encouraging the defacement (i.e. taking and/or posting pictures or videos) of school property will incur consequences. We greatly appreciate your help with this issue!


Sincerely,

Amanda Thrower

Principal

ELA NOVEL STUDIES

In order to grow students in the ELA standard-specific skills of independent reading, analysis, synthesis, and explanation, we highly recommend students purchase their own copy of our novel study texts, in order to read at home and annotate while reading. So, we have made those purchases super easy for our busy families!


7th grade students will read The Outsiders during the month of October.

Beginning on Tuesday, September 7th, copies can be purchased on My Payments Plus for $8.00. Books will be delivered to student’s Language Arts teacher.

RECOGNIZE A LIBERTY STAFF MEMBER

We invite you to "shout-out" Liberty staff members who are making a difference and carrying out the mission, vision, beliefs, and commitments of Liberty Middle School!


Please submit your recognitions HERE. Thank you for supporting the hard work and dedication of our incredible staff!

SUBSTITUTES NEEDED

Liberty is in great need of substitute teachers, and our parents make the best subs when a teacher has to be out. If you are available during the school day and interested in earning some extra income, please consider applying to be a substitute. Information can be found HERE.
