Dear Liberty Family,

 The 2019-2020 school year is well under way!  It’s hard to believe but we are already halfway through the first marking period; which ends on Tuesday, October 22nd.  Reminder if you haven’t done so already, please update your information on the portal.


October 7th-12th  ~ Week of Respect

In the effort to promote tolerance, togetherness and respect, Jackson Liberty will be promoting a theme for each of the five days.  Additionally, there will be various class discussions, activities, and challenges based on positivity, kindness, appreciation, tolerance, and self-worth.  We hope that as the week unfolds, we all make efforts to be more respectful and tolerant towards others with our actions and with our words.

The 2019 National Red Ribbon Week theme is:  “Send a Message, Stay Drug Free.”™

The theme is a call to action to speak out in support of healthy choices. The theme is also a reminder that by staying drug free, you are sending a message to yourself and others about how much you value yourself, your overall health, your community and your future.





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.
