Liberty’s Annual Grandparents Day

reverence and celebration of family. As a parent-run charter school, Liberty believes grandparents 
have an honored place and a special role in the education and upbringing of all students.

the Monday prior to Thanksgiving Day. This will occur from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m., 
in the kindergarten classrooms. Watch for additional communications directly

Grandparents only please. Grandparents Day is a special and exclusive day set aside for Liberty
grandparents and students. Concern about overcrowding dictates that no other visitors will be
permitted to participate in this event. The school is open all other schooldays to parents and
guardians who are otherwise always welcome to observe and participate in the educational process 
at both school campuses.
