Happy Friday Liberty Ridge Families,

First, I would like to congratulate the primary students on their amazing performance last night at the PAC. Our kids sounded great on stage as we listened to a range of musical genres combined with American history. We truly value music and its benefits at Liberty Ridge. A study published in 2007 by Christopher Johnson, professor of music education and music therapy at the University of Kansas, revealed that students in elementary schools with superior music education programs scored around 22 percent higher in English and 20 percent higher in math scores on standardized tests, compared to schools with low-quality music programs, regardless of socioeconomic disparities among the schools or school districts. Johnson compares the concentration that music training requires to the focus needed to perform well on a standardized test.

When a staff member is absent, the substitute plays a key role in maintaining the safety of students and the continuity of the educational program. Our ability to staff our schools appropriately is dependent upon well qualified, dependable substitutes.  The District substitute pay rate is $135 per day and $76 per half day.
