Do you have children enrolled in the Liberty Hill ISD? There’s a lot going on at Rancho Sienna Elementary and the Liberty Hill Intermediate, Middle School, and High School this year. It’s currently back to school season, which is one of the busiest times of the year for the school district. If you’re interested in helping students, teachers, and school staff get this year off on the right foot, there are a number of different ways you can get involved.
Offer to Help with Classroom Supplies
It’s no secret that teachers often pay for classroom supplies out of their own pockets. While school supply lists are designed to help supply the classroom in addition to providing each student with what they need, there are many items teachers use that aren’t on these lists. Some families may also find it financially difficult to buy everything on the list, especially if they have several children.
You can offer to help teachers by making donations of classroom supplies from one of these lists or by talking to the teacher to see what’s needed. You don’t have to necessarily buy anything, either. If you have unused craft supplies that you know you’ll never use, donating them helps supply a classroom and declutters your home.
If you have free time during the day, you can volunteer at any of the Liberty Hill ISD schools. There are a number of volunteering options—mentor students, help in the office, assist in the classroom, or help on beautification projects around the campus. You can also volunteer to help with student organizations or as a chaperone for field trips. Parent representatives are also needed for planning committees and the School Health Advisory Council.
There are many different opportunities to help the schools of Liberty Hill. If you’re uncertain how your talents can best be used, call the school and ask what they need or talk to your student’s teacher.
Simply Be Active in Your Student’s School Life
Nothing is quite as disheartening to teachers than inviting parents to an event and only seeing a handful show up. While it may not be possible for you to attend every function at school, do make the effort to attend as many as you can. Often, that’s all it takes to help your student excel and to support the teachers and staff. Showing up to sporting events, academic club meets, parent-teacher conferences, and other activities is more important than you may think, especially to your children. Take a look at the district calendar and make note of important events early so you can make arrangements to attend.
