January's Happenings

Dear Liberty Family,

Happy New Year!  Report cards for the second marking period became available on the portal beginning January 2nd.  The first semester is approaching its final weeks as the semester closes on January 31st.  Exemption for final exams are now in place for 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students who score a 93 or above in all three marking periods. 


Seniors of the Month


The seniors chosen were nominated by staff members for superlative achievement, whether it be for involvement in activities, academics, performance and sportsmanship, or showing outstanding improvement.  A committee then reviews and makes selections.

During the month of December Jackson Liberty High School had good reason to feel the pride.  There was a lot of giving during the holiday season from our entire Liberty Family.  The Liberty faculty and staff came together to buy gifts for those in need.  Items ranged from clothes, toys, hygiene products, and laptops.  The Interact Club Ran Project Soldier and The Blessing Bag.  Project Soldier collected toys for students whose parent(s) were deployed during the holidays and The Blessing Bag made 150+ bags with essential items for the homeless.  Additionally, Jackson Liberty worked in conjunction with Jackson Memorial’s AFJROTC for Toys for Tots and their Interact Club to collect items for animals at the Ocean County Animal facility.
