Administrator's Message:

It is hard to believe we are almost at the end of the 1st Nine Weeks of School. Students are learning so much and we are so proud of how hard they are working!


We are incorporating a word of the week into our announcements and students earn points for their class when they use it correctly in a sentence. Ask your child about each week's word, we are hearing some great sentences! So far we have learned: awkward, banter and impeccable.


Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Penny Wars, we raised over $700 for the United Way! Students had so much fun adding points to their class and sabotaging others!


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.

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

    As students are becoming reacclimated to school, we have been focusing on our social emotional health or our "emotional intelligence". Students are learning to be more self aware. This includes learning how to show empathy, manage their own emotions, make responsible decisions and resolve conflicts. Remember that modeling "emotional intelligence" begins at home and your child is watching and learning from you.
