Liberty Leadership Class Learns About Flag Etiquette

Posted on: January 22, 2019

On Friday, January 18th, Chris Reese and James Leeper, shared with the 5th grade leadership class, the proper, respectful way to handle, raise and lower the United States flag.  Raising and lowering the flag is one of the many jobs that Liberty’s wonderful 5th graders do each day.  Their advisor and one of Liberty’s brilliant 5th grade teachers, Mrs. Rider, meets each month to assign jobs around the school.  Thank you, Chris and James, for helping us learn the proper flag etiquette!

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.

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

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.
