Liberty Middle School

Principal's Desk.....

Dear Liberty Families,


Thank you for all of the support and kind words you have given to me to welcome me into Liberty. I appreciate your willingness in helping us partner to make this the best school in North Carolina. We have great teachers, a strong athletic program, a strong Arts program, and great partnerships with the community. I just wanted to let you know that I am here any time that you have a question or a concern. Communication is very important to me as your principal. I am working on ways to increase the communication by updating the website: https://sites.google.com/a/burke.k12.nc.us/lms/ weekly.

We also have a Twitter Feed embedded now into the website to share all of the wonderful things your students are doing at Liberty Middle. We are also working on a Facebook Page for LMS and PTO to share events and provide the most current information. As soon as we get it ready we will embed the link on our webpage listed above. If you have questions or concerns and do not want to email me I have created a Google Form listed on the LMS webpage. We will continue to use School Reach to inform you of important school events, if you are not receiving those calls please call us. Thanks for all you do!


Mrs. Abernathy
