It is the mission of the Liberty Christian School Parent Teacher Fellowship to form a relationship between families, faculty, and staff by providing a service of volunteerism and support through prayer, events, and fundraising.
Studies show that strong parental involvement in a child’s education will help that student perform better in their studies. For that reason we encourage parents to be involved. We have a number of different ways in which a parent or grandparent can use their gifts and talents. With the help of our parents we have been able to provide many successful programs.

Parents are asked to collect General Mills Box Tops for Education and Campbell's Soup Labels and send these to school with their student. These items are collected and sent to the sponsoring companies for cash awards for Liberty Christian. The committee will place collection containers in the classrooms, gather box tops/labels each month, sort and count items, and mail to sponsoring companies. Student incentives/prizes should be established by the committee to encourage participation.
Field Day is usually held the last day of school at Liberty Christian. These few hours are set aside for outdoor fun and fellowship among students and families. The Committee will work closely with faculty in planning events, gathering needed supplies, and setting up and taking down items necessary for Field Day.
At least one Homeroom Parent is needed for each grade at Liberty Christian School. These individuals will work closely with the classroom teacher to determine how best to serve the students and teacher throughout the year. Some possible activities for Homeroom Parents could be planning holiday parties, assisting with classroom projects, organizing birthday party for teacher, and enlisting the involvement of other classroom parents.
Each spring Liberty Christian School hosts a Pastor Appreciation Breakfast for all pastors who serve the families of Liberty Christian, as well as any other pastor in the Searcy area. The committee works closely with the administrator in coordinating this event. Committee members send invitations, gather door prizes, decorate, cook and serve food, and clean up after the breakfast.
Students in each classroom participate in a Penny Drive that is held from early fall until late spring of each school year. Money collected from this drive directly benefits the students by purchasing items such as playground equipment, books, etc. The Committee is responsible for placing collection containers in all classrooms, emptying containers on a monthly basis, and taking pennies to the bank for counting. Attention should be given to establishing class incentives/prizes for maximum student participation throughout the year. The committee, along with PTF Leadership Team, will determine items to be purchased for the students.
In the spring of 2007, Liberty Christian School conducted its first all-night prayer vigil. The committee will schedule a date for the event, promote the prayer vigil to parents, ensure the building is supervised at all times throughout the event, and be responsible for locking the facilities once the prayer vigil has ended.
See You at the Pole is held one morning in September every school year. This is a time set aside for students, faculty, and parents to gather before school and pray for our school, families, and country. The committee will arrange for refreshments and coordinate the time of prayer. The committee will be responsible for clean-up following the fellowship.
Teacher Appreciation Week is held in the spring of each school year. The committee is responsible for promoting this week to acknowledge our faculty's hard work and dedication. The committee will have an allocated amount of money from the PTF account to plan activities and /or purchase gift items for the faculty. Committee members will meet to share ideas, decide activities/gifts, and designate individual responsibilities.
The PTF conducts two used uniform sales each year at the school. The committee is responsible for scheduling the dates for the sales, systematically gathering items from parents, sorting all clothing, arranging the items for the sale, and working the sale. This committee also assumes responsibility for cleaning up afterwards and storing any unsold clothing.
The Yearbook Committee works throughout the school year to compile a yearbook for the students and families of LCS. Committee members will select a theme/design, establish a systematic way of collecting pictures, and enter all pictures and text into the computer program designed for yearbook compilation. Committee will choose publisher, establish cost of yearbook, and arrange for delivery before the last day of school each year.
