LIBERTY COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS TREE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR FAMILIES

It may seem early, but for some families it's time to begin thinking about Christmas. If you or a family you know need assistance this holiday season, please check out the Liberty Community Christmas Tree Program. The application deadline is a little bit earlier this year. They will be accepting applications until October 16th, 2015. For more information go here.


Also spread the word about volunteering to adopt a family! It is an awesome opportunity to teach kids about being generous, being good citizens, and taking care of our neighbors.

LIBERTY HIGH SCHOOL'S SAFE HALLOWEEN EVENT

Join Liberty High School's Student Council on Thursday, October 29th from 6:00-8:00pm for a fun, non-scary, safe Halloween event in the Liberty High School Commons.


There will be games, activities, and of course candy all geared towards kids in 3rd grade and under! Admission per child is either 3 non-perishable items or $3. Proceeds and items collected will benefit Key Club’s Snack Pack program, which benefits LPS students in need.


Check out the flier here for more information.

BIRTHDAY TREATS NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH THE CAFETERIA!

LPS Nutrition Services is pleased to announce a new service called “Celebration Snacks”. Celebration snacks are great for classroom birthday celebrations. These snacks can be ordered through the school café manager at a low cost. Orders are billed to the student’s Parent Online lunch account which allows for debit cards to be used as a payment method. Everything can be done by phone for ease of service. The snacks are conveniently listed by food allergen to help parents who need to avoid specific food allergies in their student's classroom. You can find more information here.

CLOTHING DRIVE FOR SCHUMACHER STUDENTS

Fall is just around the corner and it is the time of year to begin going through your kids' closets and dressers to pull out their winter clothes. If your kiddos are growing like weeds, please remember your child's school when you are setting aside those clothes that no longer fit! If you don't plan to have a garage sale anytime soon and are looking for somewhere to donate those unwanted clothes, please consider donating them to Schumacher. It's easy! Just drop off your donations at the front office the next time you come to school. Items that are of highest need are clean, hole-free, gently-used, t-shirts, shorts, pants, and shoes, as well as new underwear, and new socks.

Thank you ahead of time for your love and generosity for your fellow Shark Families.

ART TO REMEMBER

PTA will be shipping your kiddos' masterpieces to Art to Remember on September 30th. We should receive the order forms back the week of October 16th. Please keep an eye out for these order forms that will be sent home with your kiddo. Their masterpiece will be attached to the order form.


There are over 30 keepsakes products available. Many of the items are less than $15. These make great gifts for grandparents, aunts, uncles and are wonderful keepsakes that capture a moment in time with your child’s masterpiece.


All orders need to be turned in no later than October 22nd. The items will arrive the week of November 20th. We cannot accept any late orders received after October 25th. After the 25th you will need to contact AtR directly and there will be no guarantee orders will be received by Christmas. If you would like to check out the products or place additional orders after our fundraiser is completed, please go to www.arttoremember.com.
