Please, no "wheeled" backpacks or satchel/messenger style bags.
Please slip a sock over water bottles in order to keep
condensation off of the desks and carpet.

Please visit the cafeteria to pay ahead for school lunches. Paying for lunches before the start of the school day assists our cafeteria director in crediting accounts more expediently. Students should not store money in their desks due to potential theft or loss.
Please remind your child to take home his/her lunch box daily. Lunch boxes left overnight may encourage unwanted pests and critters to take up residence in our classroom.

CTA Birthday Policy
(as of July 2010)
Birthdays are special & fun to celebrate. However, families are asked not to send in birthday treats. Instead, the teacher will present the birthday child with a special ‘birthday gift.’ Liberty feels that this will help keep the focus on learning and help make birthday celebrations consistent & fair for all students. If you have concerns about this school policy, please contact the front office.
*Please remember that students are not to hand out invitations at school unless all students
in the class are being given an invitation. Individual invitations should be mailed
(our room parent will provide each family with a class directory).
