Liberty Middle Scholastic Book Fair


Get ready! This year's Book Fair is going to be epic! We've turned up the volume with more fun, more choices and more excitement, so kids will arrive curious and leave bolder, prouder, and stronger than ever before. Here's what you need to know about our upcoming fair:

  • Every dollar you spend will benefit our school directly
  • You can sign up for Book Fair eWallet, a convenient digital payment account, so your child can shop the Fair cash-free. Grandparents, friends, and others can contribute to the eWallet to help build your home library.
  • We’re taking precautions to host a safe Fair at our school, focusing on preventive measures.

Save these dates and view our school’s Fair site:

Academic Matters:

At the last School Board meeting, a new feature was introduced called Academic Matters. During this portion of the Board meeting, updates will be provided on important academic topics. At the November 3 meeting, Superintendent Dr. Michelle Reid shared some common misconceptions concerning the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) assessment. Watch the presentation on YouTube.

FCPS Calendar Survey:

In an annual planning process, FCPS uses input from the community to help develop the school year calendar for the following year. The Calendar Survey will be sent to parents/caregivers, employees, and students in grades 7-12.

Our framework for creating the calendar is available online to ensure transparency, as we work to build a calendar that is inclusive and equitable.
