Mr. Nazarian, with the help of students, rebuilds Liberty’s courtyard benches

Posted on: January 22, 2019

This fall Mr. Nazarian, one of Liberty’s talented 5th grade teachers, took on the task of rebuilding the courtyard benches.  Located outside of the office area, these two benches were worn and weathered but now are beautifully fresh and new, ready to be enjoyed by students!  Parr Lumber generously donated the wood, paint and screws.  In art and regular classes, each student was able to design a square.  Thank you to all who participated and especially to Mr. Nazarian who spent extra time (even came in on winter break!) to create our brilliant benches!

Hour of Code 2019

Posted on: January 15, 2019

Thank you to our Hewlett Packard employee volunteers, Jeff Oneida, Sum Yee Lai, Isaac Jessop, and Patrick Hulligan for facilitating this year’s Hour of Code activity.   The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.

Join us in the Superintendent Search process!

Posted on: December 21, 2018

The search is underway for a new superintendent, and our school board is asking for your input!  What qualities would you like to see in a new leader? What experience should that person have? Should the board consider special areas of knowledge or skills?

In January, there will be two ways to share your input: in person at focus groups or through an online survey.  The focus groups and online survey will gather the perceptions of staff, students, parents and community members to create a district profile for the search process.  

To share in person:
Student & Parent Focus Group – January 16 – 7:00-8:00 pm
The Student & Parent Focus Group is ideal for current students and parents in the district.

Community Member Focus Group – January 17 – 7:00-8:00 pm
The Community Member Focus Group is ideal for any one who is part of the community.

To share online:
If you are not able to share in person, please consider sharing your thoughts through an online survey. The survey will be open January 14-21.  Staff and parents will receive a link to the survey by e-mail and the link will be posted on the Superintendent Search page.

Our school board and search committee members will use your feedback as they move forward in the selection process. Choosing a new superintendent is one of the most important decisions a school board can make, and we look forward to your participation!


¡Únase a nosotros en el proceso de búsqueda del Superintendente!

¡La búsqueda está en marcha para un nuevo superintendente y nuestra Mesa Directiva está solicitando su opinión! ¿Qué cualidades le gustaría ver en un nuevo líder? ¿Qué experiencia debe tener esa persona? ¿Debería la Mesa Directiva considerar áreas especiales de conocimiento o habilidades?

En enero, habrá dos formas de compartir su opinión: en persona en grupos de conversación o mediante una encuesta en el Internet. Los grupos de conversación y la encuesta en el Internet, reunirán las percepciones del personal, los estudiantes, los padres y los miembros de la comunidad, para crear un perfil del distrito para el proceso de búsqueda.

Para compartir en persona:
Grupo de conversación de padres y estudiantes – 16 de enero – 7: 00-8: 00 pm
El grupo de conversación de padres y estudiantes, es ideal para estudiantes y padres actuales en el distrito.

Grupo de conversación de miembros de la comunidad – 17 de enero – 7: 00-8: 00 pm
El grupo de conversación de miembros de la comunidad, es ideal para cualquiera que forme parte de la comunidad.

Para compartir en el Internet:
Si no puede compartir en persona, considere compartir sus ideas a través de una encuesta en el Internet. La encuesta estará abierta del 14 al 21 de enero. El personal y los padres recibirán un enlace a la encuesta por correo electrónico y el enlace se publicará en la página de Búsqueda del Superintendente.

Los miembros de nuestra Mesa Directiva y del comité de búsqueda, utilizarán sus comentarios a medida que avanzan en el proceso de selección. ¡La elección de un nuevo superintendente es una de las decisiones más importantes que una Mesa Directiva puede tomar, y esperamos su participación!

Liberty Hiking Club Sets Dates

Posted on: December 12, 2018

“The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness” – John Muir

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 max.nazarian@albany.k12.or.us.

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.

Canned Food Drive, Coin Drive Huge Success!

Posted on: December 11, 2018

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!
