From the Liberty PTA Board
Hello from your Liberty Elementary PTA!

We want to  thank you for your support last month during the 2nd Annual Liberty Gives and Movie Night. Together, we raised over $3,800 for our Liberty community! Your generous donations help fund field trips, teacher support and grant requests (including 28 new student headphones funded this month), and so much more! Winners of our Liberty Gives daily prizes are listed below. 

Thank you to everyone who joined and participated in our Liberty PTA membership contest! We are almost to our goal of 100 members, with 95 joined so far! If we reach our goal, we are entered to win $500 from the Idaho PTA. If you'd like to join please sign up at  https://libertypta.maxgiving.com/

Please  join us Nov. 5 for our 2nd PTA meeting of the year to hear the latest updates and for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. We meet at 3:30pm in the Liberty Library. Kids are welcome. 

Also,  mark your calendars for Box Top BINGO, Nov. 15, a fun night for the whole family in the Liberty Gym. Volunteers are sourcing some amazing kid and adult prizes. Watch for more information in the coming weeks!

Finally,  please consider joining one of our teams. We are looking for committee members for Box Tops, Liberty Love, The Nest yearbook and Eagle Eye newsletter. Please email us at  LibertyElementaryPTA2@gmail.com if you are interested in participating in any of these opportunities. We'd love to work with you!

Thanks for making Liberty a great place for kids to learn and grow! Liberty students are lucky to have such strong support from our Liberty community.

Red Ribbon Week

Box Tops Bingo Night ~ 
Friday, November 15 5-8pm in Liberty Gym

Art Parents Needed!  Sign up Here!

 Box Tops 

The rectangles that you have seen and cut out for this program is being phased out. The replacement system involves an app and scanning receipts. T his is a much easier process than clipping and keeping track of the cut outs. Once you scan your receipt, the money is applied to Liberty Elementary. We will still accept the cut outs - send them to school with your child. 

To find out more about the new Box Topsapp how to use, 
please click  here!

Great news! If you shop for groceries online, you can now submit your email receipts from select retailers to earn Box Tops for your school. For more information, please click  here!

Flying Eagles Needs YOU!
Flying Eagles is one of our school's most coveted programs. Each Tuesday and Thursday students run and walk during their lunch recess to earn laps in our Flying Eagles club. Each lap helps students get that extra needed activity and shoe tokens to show off their mileage. Many even earn the prestigious "100 Mile" award at the end of the year! 

We need volunteers to help keep this program going strong! Your time and commitment to our students is always appreciated! 

Your support directly benefits our teachers! Liberty teachers received $3,500 for the first semester! They will receive $7000 this year - up from $3000 last year! We love our teachers and are grateful for your support!
