Families at Liberty Elementary had a chance to join their students in class during Families in School Day on Feb. 18.  During the annual event for Liberty Elementary families, parents joined students in the classroom to experience what a typical school day is like for their kids. 
Upon arrival to the school, families were treated to breakfast and a presentation by Liberty Elementary Principal Chris Anderson, which highlighted the goals of the school and invited parents to become engaged in their children’s educations. 
Under the direction of Capt. Bradley Cooper, military volunteers from Fort Stewart’s 703rd Battalion helped to make this day special by supporting students whose family members were not able to attend due to deployments, school officials said.
During the day, parents had a chance to shop at the book fair, participate in activities and join in classwork.
The teachers did a great job of making work fun while still aligning activities to the Georgia Performance Standards, school officials said. 
In kindergarten, students studied the rain forest and created headbands.
Third-grade students collected, represented and interpreted data by sorting candy hearts and graphing their findings. 
Meanwhile, fifth-grade students used their math skills to create ice cream treats. They had to work out the equivalent measurements of their recipes to make individual servings.
