Thank you for such a beautiful and loving sending forth ceremony! Thank you for loving my daughter! ☮❤
If your kids are literally bouncing off the walls, try Cosmic Kids Yoga on YouTube. We did "The Three Little Pigs" and "Trolls" this morning, and it was a great workout for all my kiddos, ages 3-10.
When is the next Pre-K family orientation? I missed Tuesday's
Great learning experience for the children of Libertas School of Memphis. We learned when and why to call 911.What it would be like if your house caught fire, and what we should in case of fire. Overall I think the children had a wonderful time as did.
Sincerely
Karllee and Daylen's mom.

If there are any other Midtowners with kids going to Libertas, I'd love to carpool. Please be in touch!
We used our 'family pass' that the kids brought home from their field trip to the Brooks Museum of Art today. I HIGHLY recommend the 'Inside Art' exhibit if you go with your family. There are all sorts of wonderful hands-on ways to touch and see and think about art. Perfect rainy afternoon family activity.

Our mission is to be a school for human flourishing: Cultivating the minds, hands and hearts of children in Memphis for lives of wonder, work and love.

Libertas School of Memphis is a public Montessori elementary school in Frayser, Memphis. Thank you for stopping by our page! Check back here for regular updates on what is going on at our school.

The September virtues are Honesty-say what you know is true, and Prudence-choose the right way to do the right thing. Two of our school wide stories are A Story, A Story by Gail Haley and The Empty Pot by Demi. Doing the right thing in the right way can be difficult. These two stories encourage us to exercise honesty and temperance because there are treasures that “practical wisdom” can offer.

Over the last 18 months, the pandemic has threatened public education as well as public health: reports of the recent TN Ready test reveal that academics declined across the state, worsening the opportunity gap for high-poverty communities. But we are thrilled to share that Libertas reversed the trend:

-Increasing proficiency in all subjects and grades

-Earning (again!) Level 5 - the highest academic growth designation - one of just three such schools in our district
-Special education students again grew faster than typical peers
-*Soaring up percentiles - a quarter of the rankings -among all schools in Tennessee!*
This is a historic ascent. Brookmeade school was in the lowest 1% of our state just 6 years ago. But here in the Frayser community, we believe in the best for the least. So in 2015 we began the transformation into Libertas - Tennessee's first public Montessori charter school, now a national model for safe, rich and personalized learning. Congratulations to our families, students, and teachers!

This week, our classes read different versions of Cinderella to learn how to treat people with the respect that they'd want to be treated with. You never know what someone is going through just by looking at them on a surface level.

How can we, as teachers and parents, encourage our children to be kind to people who lack kindness themselves?

This month’s virtue theme is about how order, obedience, and manners enable us to live in community. We are reading the story of The Rough-Face Girl, which compares a kind and deformed young woman to her two beautiful and cruel sisters. While her sisters treat her with disrespect, Rough-Face Girl treats everyone, including nature, as if they matter. Her kind heart leads her to true love and happiness, a perfect fit for a gracious and courteous soul. At home, how does your family show the smallest things and people that they are important?

“And when he saw her sitting there he said, "At last we have been found out." Then, smiling kindly, he added, "And oh, my sister, but she is beautiful." The Invisible Being, The Rough-Face Girl

We named our annual poetry event after Phillis Wheatley. Who is Phillis Wheatley?

She left an incredible legacy as the first ever published African-American author and as the first to make a living as an author. She was so revered that she was honored by many of America's founding fathers, including George Washington, who wrote to her (after she wrote a poem in his honor) that "the style and manner [of your poetry] exhibit a striking proof of your great poetical Talents."

We are so excited to host families again for our Phillis Wheatley event next month!
