Message from Principal Timmons

Dear Liberty Community-

We are coming to our last week of the semester. A very important week in which there are many opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning for the first half of the year.

I want to give a shout out to the whole Liberty community as ODE just released the 2018-19 graduation rates. Liberty’s graduation rate of 86.68 is the highest rate in our history! That is an outstanding accomplishment that all should be proud of!

Liberty Proud!

Greg Timmons


Querida Comunidad de Liberty-
