Liberty Message from Nurse Monica- Attention parents of 6th grade students, Please get physicals and immunizations into Nurse Monica as soon as possible to avoid exclusion on October 15. Thanks!
Liberty Tigers had their kickoff assemblies today to discuss ROAR and our behavior expectations for the school year. ROAR stands for Respectful, Organized, Accountable, Responsible. Quarterly, we will focus on each one of the attributes to help ensure our success here at Liberty. Students receive grades for their Work Habits and this quarter they are tied to being Respectful. The goal is to have 75% of our students receive a 3 as a Work Habits grade. Staff members were great sports and allowed students to pie them in the face. Student participation was essential during the Q&A sessions and throughout the assembly. A big thank you to our Tiger Leadership Team members that lead skits during the assemblies. Let's go Tigers! We are Team Liberty!
Check out these Liberty MVPs! Nora DeYoung, Ethan Regas, and Tyler Welch each earned a positive office referral for going above and beyond to help out a peer. We are very proud of these 6th graders for leading by example and for being the first MVPs of the 21-22 School Year. Keep up the good work!
