Getting Students Engaged
Research shows that when parents and family members are involved in their child’s school life, the student scores higher and achieves a higher level of success in their education. At Liberty Central School District, we prepare students for the future by providing the challenges and opportunities for them to develop strong academic skills, find a meaningful place in the school community, and experience a joy for life-long learning and discovery. Education is not just about earning a diploma; it’s about graduating with the knowledge and skills necessary for life-long success.
One of our key goals is to create a friendly, welcoming environment for all of our families that recognizes and encompasses the cultures and diversity that make up the Liberty Central School District. The District strives to maintain monthly programs, such as our welcome back barbecues, literacy nights, art walks, parent workshops and more, to help build a strong home to school partnership.
We design programs as a way to provide parents and families the opportunity to become full partners in their child’s education. By bringing the most important people in a child’s education–school district staff and their families–together in a collaborative way, we can ensure their success. Our annual “All Things Liberty” event is an opportunity for families to access information about school, community and municipal resources.
The nationally recognized Leader in Me program, used in all three buildings, creates connections between academics and social emotional learning in an effort to meet the needs of the whole child. We believe this approach provides students with a head start on achieving success. Families play a critical role in the overall development of their children and their accomplishments. Take time to learn what is happening in your child’s school. We are here to provide supports, strategies, answer questions and hear concerns in order to partner with you as your child progresses through the Liberty Central School District.
Ways to be Involved at your child’s school
The more you are involved with your child’s education, the more chances your child has for success. Here are just some of the ways you can be directly involved in your child’s school: reading with students, small-group activities, special class projects, test monitoring, parent teacher organizations, booster clubs, tutoring, career/special interest speaker, sponsor/chaperone activities or field trips, and classroom, media center or clerical assistance. If you are willing to share your energy and talents, we have a place for you. Reach out to your child’s building to see how you can participate.
