Please join us!
The Liberty PTO is requesting your assistance with our alternative fundraiser from now through March 1st. Instead of sending students home with the task of selling merchandise, collecting money, and delivering goods, we are hoping you will support the PTO with a donation. All money raised goes towards the students and faculty at Liberty Middle School. (We hope you appreciate our sense of humor! ? The fundraising form is located HERE. The students will also be getting a copy of this fundraising form and you can also see it on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WFLibertyPTO
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at email@example.com
Next Meeting: Monday, January 27 at 7 pm in the Liberty Library. All are welcome

Tickets go on Sale in the LMS Office on Tuesday, January 21. Tickets are $5 per seat. Reserved seating only..
Our school hours are from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm. We expect students to be in school and on time every day that they are not sick or unable to attend for serious reasons. There are many positive benefits from regular school attendance. If a student is absent from school, we need a parent or guardian to call the school office at (701) 356-2671 OR send an email to Liberty@west-fargo.k12.nd.us before 9:30am . If we do not hear from you by that time, our automated system will call you at 9:40 am.
If your student is going to be leaving the school during the day, a parent or guardian must call the school or send a note with your student to give to the office. Your student must check out in the office when they leave and check back in when they return. Students must be responsible for coming to the office without being called at checkout time. We do not like to call students out of classrooms; it is very disruptive to the class.

School-Based Sealant Program
Seal! North Dakota School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program
In 2012, The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) implemented the Seal! North Dakota School-Based Fluoride Varnish and Dental Sealant Program. The dentist and/or dental hygienist visit each school two times a year (fall and spring), to provide direct preventive services. Services include: oral health education, dental exam/screening, teeth cleaning, dental sealants and fluoride varnish application. A parent/guardian signed consent form is required to participate in the Seal! North Dakota Program.
Any student who does not already have a regular dentist may sign up if they have a completed and signed parent/guardian consent form. A result sheet (what the child had done), toothbrush, floss, and a small prize will be provided to each child that is seen. Maple Family Dental will be providing the services at your school; watch for more information to come!
