Students enjoy new cafeteria tables at LMS

Sorry, Huey Lewis. Contrary to the lyrics, it’s more hip to be round.

Students at Liberty Middle School are enjoying their school’s brand new, round cafeteria tables. The school’s former tables – which were over 20 years old – were showing signs of wear.

The cafeteria now boasts a “café-like” atmosphere with a smoother traffic flow. Each school building now has round tables.

LES and LHS receive indoor growing station

The Liberty Central School District is one of five Sullivan County schools that has been awarded a Healthy Community Initiatives Grant through Sullivan Renaissance to participate in a pilot program that “brings the outside in.”

Earlier last month, our elementary and high school received a GrowLab LED indoor growing station, seed starter kit, along with curriculum and activity books from Gardener’s Supply Company of Vermont.

High school teacher Mr. Kevin Ferguson recently completed a “trial run” using the growing station. He and his students successfully grew a large batch of pea shoots.

The pea shoots were grown without any fertilizer, chemicals or additives. Even better, they are going to be served at the school’s salad bar.

LCSD to host Camp Invention for K-6 students Aug. 19-23

Camp Invention, a summer enrichment program offered at schools nationwide, will be held for Liberty students in grades K-6 on Aug. 19-23, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Liberty High School.

Unmask your child’s creativity this summer in Camp Invention’s new program, Supercharged, where children build confidence, learn to collaborate and transform their wild imaginations into epic creations.

The program will feature hands-on activities to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) learning; building resourcefulness and problem-solving skills; and encourages entrepreneurship.

Campers will learn creative problem-solving skills while coding and programming futuristic robots, uncovering ancient fossils, designing high-tech superhero gadgets and exploring radio frequencies.

Liberty Elementary School teacher and MakerSpace facilitator Mrs. Tamika Terry will lead this action-packed program featuring exhilarating, hands-on STEM activities teaching campers to question, explore, break through obstacles and embrace failure!

Each day in this five-day long camp will focus on four modules and their coordinating projects:

CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING

Children team up to rebuild ships and design underwater equipment in Deep Sea Mystery.

STEM APPLICATION

In DIY Orbot, participants explore circuit boards, motors and gears as they design a remote-control bot to take on obstacles from sports to dance.

INNOVATION

Children collaborate with inventor superheroes and take on the role of engineers, fabricators and innovators to conquer villains in Innovation Force.

CONFIDENCE

Kids become successful entrepreneurs in Farm Tech, as they code bots to turn a polluted wasteland into a money-making machine and create devices to save animals.

There is an opportunity for students in grade 7-9 to take part in the camp’s Leaders-in-Training (LIT) program. LITs will gain mentoring and collaboration skills while helping guide campers throughout the week!
