Message from Principal Timmons

Dear Liberty Community –


As we head into second semester it is always a great time to for students and teachers to reset with fresh grades and a new start. Take this opportunity over the long weekend to check in with your students and talk about their goals for the second semester and set a plan to make those goals a reality.

If you did not get a chance to attend the Student Success Act information meeting, please take a moment to give your feedback to our school district in how to prioritize the use of funds from the Student Success Act. Your voice matters so please use the link here to learn more and take the short survey: SSA Info and Survey


Liberty Proud!

Greg Timmons


Querida comunidad de Liberty –


A medida que avanzamos hacia el principio del segundo semestre siempre es un buen momento, tanto para estudiantes como maestros, para renovarse y comenzar de nuevo con sus calificaciones. Tome este fin de semana largo como una oportunidad para hablar con su estudiante sobre las metas para el segundo semestre y establecer un plan para que etas se hagan realidad.

Si usted no tuvo la oportunidad de asistir a la reunión informativa de la Ley de Éxito Estudiantil (Student Success Act), por favor tómese un momento para darnos su opinión sobre como nuestro distrito puede priorizar el uso de los fondos de esta ley. Su voz cuenta, así que por favor utilice este enlace para obtener más información y tomar la corta encuesta: SSA Info and Survey


Orgulloso de Liberty!

Greg Timmons
