Incoming fifth grade students at Liberty Middle School exchanged hugs and compared class schedules with old and new friends as they arrived on campus for their welcome-back barbecue orientation on Tuesday, Aug. 23.
About 170 students, parents and guardians came to the school’s barbecue orientation to get their questions answered, hear about key academic programs, and discuss the curriculum their child will tackle this year.
During orientation, students and parents were given course schedules, locker combinations and building tours. Eighth grade student volunteers shared insights and answered questions about life at Liberty Middle School.
But the barbecue was more than just a get-acquainted session, say administrators and faculty. It was a great first step for new families to build a strong home-to-school partnership. Click here for photos from the event.
