Dear Parents,

On behalf of the entire Liberty Staff and School Family, I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to partner with you in support of your children.  We are grateful for the opportunity to help shape them and join them in their learning journey.  It is a joy to serve our school family.  From all of us, we wish you a much needed break from the routine for a season of gladness, a season of cheer, and to top it all off a wonderful New Year.  Here’s to 2020!!

Peace and joy to each of you,

Adam Erbrecht


8th Grade Trip to CVHS—Friday, January 10th

If your student has not yet returned the permission slip, it should be returned prior to the winter break in order to ensure his/her participation in the field trip!  School buses will transport students to Centreville at approximately 9:20 A.M. and will return to Liberty by 1:00 P.M.  Students who are purchasing lunch will be able to do so in the CVHS cafeteria.  Students who choose to bring their lunch will be required to carry their lunch bags with them for the day.  We recommend that students bring their lunch in a disposable  bag.

Curriculum Night for Parents

Curriculum Night will be held at Liberty on Thursday, January 16th (snow date—January 23rd).  This is a great opportunity to learn about the 7th and 8th grade curriculum and elective options for your student as they begin to select classes for the 2020-2021 school year.  Hope to see you on January 16th!

Your Health Matters

We have been talking about stress this month. Try to use more healthy ways to deal with stress in your body.  Listen to your body so you can rest and nourish your body to have energy and health to make it through your day.  Make time to get moving and exercise.

Now let’s focus on our mind.  Make a list of what needs to get done, set priorities for what you need to accomplish and place the items in order of importance.  Forgive yourself if you are not able to accomplish everything you had planned. 

Your emotions can tell you that you are stressed.  Are you feeling different than you normally feel?  Take it one day at a time, and try to worry less.  Try playing music when you are getting ready and/or have down time as opposed to playing video games or watching television.  Play with your pet and connect with people who will be positive and allow yourself to connect minimally with those relationships that are more destructive.  It is okay to set boundaries.  It is okay to say no!!! 

Don’t forget to make time to laugh!!

Above all else, allow yourself time to sit and breathe, relax and to be grateful for all of the goodness in your life.
