Letter from AD Mark Mongiardo

Dear Liberty Central School District Students, Staff, Parents and Community Members:


I would like to take this opportunity to officially say I am honored and excited to be selected as your next Athletic Director!

I believe that High School Athletics, when properly taught, instructed and coached is a character building experience for all involved. Character, commitment, integrity and work ethic are some of the many traits that should be exhibited by our coaches, teachers, student-athletes and community members. Our Athletic Program has the privilege and opportunity to guide our student-athletes to learn lifelong lessons that will help them succeed after High School. Just as our physical education classes concentrate on the total mental, emotional and physical development of our students, our Athletic Program will do the same.

On behalf of the Liberty Athletic Department, I welcome all students to participate in our interscholastic athletics programs. Athletics are an excellent way to grow mentally, emotionally and physically as an individual. As a graduate of Shenendehowa High School (Clifton Park, NY), I know that athletics played a major role in helping prepare me for college and the adult world. Because of athletics, the lessons of my coaches and teachers, I developed skills in time management, problem solving, delegation, motivation, and team building. Liberty Athletics participates in the NYSPHSAA (New York State Public High School Athletic Association). All rules and regulations handed down by these governing bodies will be adhered to at all times.

As a member of the Liberty athletic family, our expectations for you are similar to your own family’s expectations. Act responsibly as you represent our school district. Remember that you are an ambassador for everyone who attends our school. How you act and react to situations reflects not only on you, but also on your parents and peers. As a student-athlete, you have academic and athletic responsibilities. Study, go to class, practice hard, and do your best to excel. Take pride in the opportunity to represent all of us in a first class manner. The Liberty Athletic Department’s philosophy is that the student-athlete’s pursuits on the field should be equally measured with those off the field. To that end, a Liberty student-athlete should pursue personal growth through academic work, team experiences, and as an ambassador of our district. You should maintain a sense of ethical responsibility. The department strives to maintain an outstanding athletics program, conducted in a manner that sets an example for good sportsmanship. Our primary concern is the education of the student-athlete.

We expect all who choose to participate in our sports programs to be responsible student-athletes. We hope you will take full advantage of this opportunity to get a top-notch high school education while participating in our athletic programs. Please remember that the coaches, teachers and administrators are here for you. Our goal is to help you succeed in life. Once you have graduated, we hope you will remain involved with the district as a member of the alumni association.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you all!

Go Indians!
