Welcome to a new school year! I want to welcome returning and new parents/guardians to our school. My name is Carolina Velasquez and I’m the Parent Coordinator at Liberty High School Academy for Newcomers. As your Parent Coordinator, I’m here to help you connect and understand our school. Think of me as your personal guide to the school system, your go to person. You are welcome to come to me with any questions or concerns. I ask parents to take some time and make an effort to participate in our workshops/PTA meetings & activities. This is a team effort and I’m here to make you, your child and our school the best working team possible.

Sincerely,

Carolina Velasquez
