Future Eagles Elective Options

1/17/2019

Seven months goes faster than you think...

We cannot wait for you all to join us! In seven short months, you all will officially become Liberty Eagles, but first, you must select your classes. Next week, we will host a parent night for future freshmen and explain more about choosing classes. Liberty Counselors will also visit Frontier next week to explain how the online registration process works and answer any questions. For now, we have prepared a small newsletter filled with some elective options you have going into your Freshmen year (keep in mind there are more elective courses than shown below)!

#SayYestoFCS Join Liberty's Family and Consumer Sciences department in a variety of hands-on classes geared towards building life skills. In the Fashion Pathway, taught by Mrs. McFadden, freshmen can enroll in semester courses such as Intro to Clothing & Textiles, Housing & Interior Design, and Fashion Design & Merchandising.

Child Development I opens a lot of doors at LHS! Taking this elective as a freshman or sophomore makes you eligible to apply to be a preschool teacher in our Eagle's Nest (CD II) or a Cadet Teacher at Discovery Ridge or Frontier (Pathways to Teaching). In this semester, you'll learn how to work with children ages birth to three years and spend some time with the RealCare baby.

Publications

Freshmen who are interested in being a part of the yearbook or magazine staffs must take Introduction to Journalism as a prerequisite to build their writing, photography and communication skills. It is a fun class that students get to be creative and to discover what they like to do. This may be reporting and writing, photography, videography or design. Everyone finds their own unique niche. Journalism students manage the Liberty student news website www.lhstoday.org. Publication courses are a great opportunity to get involved in a school activity at Liberty and look good on a college application.


Check out a video (linked below) about student publications and the attached flyer to learn more about this growing and award-winning program. Contact publications adviser Jonathan Hall at jonathanhall@wsdr4.org if you have questions.

PLTW Biomed

The PLTW Biomedical Science pathway allows students to investigate the roles of biomedical professionals as they study the concepts of human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health. The courses are hands-on, project-based, rigorous, and relevant and allow students to use the same tools and techniques used by professionals in hospitals and labs! It is recommended that students begin taking PLTW Biomedical Science classes in 9th grade so that they have the opportunity to take all four courses before graduation. All PLTW Biomedical Science classes may be taken as a science or elective credit and are weighted courses with the opportunity for college credit!
