Starting this week, Sodexo, our food service provider, is holding a “Future Chef” contest for grades 3 – 5. Students can enter by picking up an entry flyer, writing their recipe on that flyer, then turning it into the box on the cafeteria stage by Tuesday, January 8th. Eight lucky winners will be chosen as finalists to compete in our contest at South Albany High School on March 21st, where they will create their recipe. The winner of that competition will be entered into a National Competition for some great prizes!

Grab your hiking boots, backpack and water bottle and join the Liberty Hiking Club as we explore various trails in the local area. Below please find additional information and scheduled trips for the 2018-19 school year.
This club is open to students and their families.
For more information, please contact Max Nazarian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Overview & Purpose
Our goal is to introduce students to the joys and experiences waiting in the great outdoors. Students will have the opportunity to encounter and explore several local hikes during the hiking club which will take place over the rest of the year. Hiking is an often overlooked form of physical activity that not only provides a physical challenge, but also provides a sense of exploration and wonder that is often lost during our daily immersion into modern technology.

The Liberty School community worked together during two weeks in November to pull off a very successful canned food and coin drive to help families in need during the Thanksgiving holiday. Students raised $650.47 dollars with the coin drive and were able to fill multiple boxes with donated food items. Mr. Nazarian’s class lead the food drive with over 179 items donated!
Between the coin drive and canned food collection students were able to provide 14 meals for families. A big THANK YOU to Mrs. Rider and the 5th grade leadership students, Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Nazarian, and all staff and students who participated to make this even such a huge success!
Staff and students alike were very surprised on December 3rd when Elvis the Elf reappeared in the school’s entry way window. Elvis, who has been appearing at Liberty for several years now, keeps his eye out for children who are being safe, responsible, and respectful, which are the hallmarks of the school’s PBIS behavior system. Last year, Elvis was spotted in the hallways, cafeteria, and gym. This morning, Elvis was spotted hanging from the workroom doorway . Students are invited to write letters to Elvis and put them in the mailbox in the office. Elvis, who has friends at West Albany High School, is very good about answering the letters in a timely manner. The students and staff were thrilled to see Elvis in the building and look forward to finding him every morning!
