Liberty’s Annual Grandparents Day
 is always scheduled in November on the Tuesday prior to 
Thanksgiving Day. This is a very popular and spectacular event that extends our school’s ongoing 
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.

 

Invitations for Grandparents Day are mailed to Liberty grandparents whose addresses we have on file.  To receive an invitation in the mail, CLICK HERE and return the form to either Liberty campus. If any grandparents did not 
receive an invitation, that’s not a problem. We want all grandparents of Liberty students (grades K – 12) to 
participate. Please regard this webpage statement as a blanket invitation to attend.
