Message from the Principal

Liberty Park Families,

Just a reminder that this Tuesday is Parent/Teacher conference day.  LP teachers are looking forward to meeting with parents to continue the partnership in helping support your students on their College and Career journey!  If you have any scheduling issues with your conference please contact your child's teacher.  Our goal is 100% participation for conferences.  

This Thursday, Liberty Park students participated in the city wide initiative to help raise awareness about the growing need to take care of our planet and our city while connecting the community and having a blast!  Check out a few of the chalk it up drawings that students created under leadership of Ms. Winebrenner, our art teacher, and Mrs. Hiatt, our EL and "Patriot Pack" student council leader.  


Have a great weekend and as always, I thank you for your continued support of Liberty Park Elementary!  
Your Principal,

Jason Brooks

“Liberty Park Elementary”
The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child's school. This may include your child's photo, your child's name or your child's work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos.  We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child's achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes.  However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify your child's school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.
The mission of Liberty Park, in partnership with its entire community, will educate each student by providing a positive, challenging, and enriched learning environment that enables each student to become a life-long learner and a responsible citizen in an increasingly global society.
