Congratulations to our players for their hard work and dedication! Although we go much of the year with open opportunities for pick up games, at select times our students make a commitment to be part of the teams that will play other schools. Academics, behavior, and attendance matter for our players and we are proud of them for all their successes in all of these areas.
Liberty Debate Team Goes to Their First Competition!
Our Liberty Debate Team is in its first year at Liberty under the sponsorship of Mr. Queirolo. Debate Team is a great opportunity for our students to improve their critical thinking skills and communication skills. Mr. Q. took two of his students to their first competition this past weekend and they had a great experience and are preparing for future competitions with other teammates.

LMS staff will be dropping by your homes in pairs on Thursday, April 13, to deliver 20th anniversary yard/window signs that say “A Liberty Lion Roars Here!”
These deliveries will take place after the two hour early dismissal for students, and staff will be identifiable in red Liberty t-shirts. We will simply greet you at the front door to say hello and hand you a yard/window sign if you are home. If you are not home, we may leave the sign on your doorstep or in your yard.
If you DO NOT WANT A SIGN or PREFER TO PICK UP your sign at school, PLEASE COMPLETE THIS FORM.
Whether or not you choose to post your sign, please know that you and your children are very important to our Liberty Lion community and we value your partnership in their education.
