Camp Invention is back this summer!

A student builds a small robot at Camp Invention. This summer enrichment program returns to Liberty in August 2020.

Camp Invention is returning to Liberty Central School District!

In partnership with the National Inventors Hall of Fame, Liberty High School will again offer the nationally acclaimed Camp Invention program to students entering grades K through 6.

This exciting, weeklong summer adventure provides lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Students rotate through several hands-on activities each day while using teamwork, creative thinking and problem-solving skills to invent unique solutions to real-world challenges.

The week begins Aug. 17, 2020 with Liberty Makerspace teacher Tamika Terry serving as director of the all-new 2020 program, Elevate!

During Camp Invention, young innovators will:

  • Build a cityscape out of upcycled materials, navigate planes through a storm and take apart a robot they’ll bring home at the end of the program.
  • Learn the value of their creativity as they sketch and build prototypes, design logos, market their invention and protect their intellectual property.
  •  Collaborate and discover solutions to protect the Earth’s ecosystems as they compete in zipline races, explore energy conservation and help wildlife habitats.
  • Discover the great inventors behind their favorite sports, play high-energy games and design the ultimate sports complex.

Camp Invention’s activities give participants the opportunity to explore, create and build confidence as they bring their biggest ideas to life.

Local educators facilitate the program and enthusiastic high school students serve as Leadership Interns, ensuring that one staff member is in place for every eight children.

Order of the Eastern Star donates much-needed school supplies

A big Liberty Thank You to the Order of the Easter Star Starlight Chapter, Number 74, which faithfully donates school supplies to Liberty Elementary, and their timing couldn’t be more perfect!

Pencils, crayons, folders and other supplies often must be replaced or replenished during the school year, and it’s wonderful to have a stash on hand so students always have what they need.

Four adults and nine students stand with boxes of school supplies
LES students and Principal Harris meet with Worthy Matron, Pamela Kennedy and member Jeanneta Hutchins to accept their generous donation of school supplies.

Liberty Middle School designation rises to “Good Standing”

Thanks to the hard work of Liberty Middle School teachers, staff, administrators, parents and, most especially, the students, the Middle School has joined Liberty Elementary as a “School in Good Standing” with the New York State Education Department.

The Education Department this week confirmed that the Middle School has successfully attained the improved designation. In 2019, the Middle School was designated as a Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) School, meaning that too many students were underperforming.

“This is terrific news and testament to the hard work of our administrators and teachers,” said Liberty Superintendent Dr. Augustine E. Tornatore.

The designations are largely based on student performance on New York State’s annual English Language Arts and Math assessments, which are taken by students in grades 3-8. Other factors include academic progress, absenteeism, graduation rates, and English language proficiency.

Student data is further divided into 10 subgroups: all students, American Indian and Alaska Native; African American; Hispanic or Latino; Asian; White; Multiracial; English language learners; students with disabilities, and economically disadvantaged students.

The designations assigned to districts and schools are:

  • Recognition School: A school that is high-performing or rapidly improving.
    School in Good Standing: A school that does not have any underperforming student subgroups.
  • Targeted Support and Improvement School: Has at least one low-performing student subgroup.
  • Comprehensive Support and Improvement School: Has an “all students” subgroup with underperformance in the bottom 5 percent of all schools in the state and, for high schools, a graduation rate below 67 percent.

Liberty High School’s designation as a Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) School, remained unchanged.

TSI designated schools are required to develop a School Comprehensive Education Plan which identifies needs and evidence-based intervention solutions and seek input from parents, staff and students through an annual survey.

“Our administrators and faculty continue to develop new curricula and provide targeted professional development to ensure that all our Liberty students achieve at their highest level, progress every year, attend school every day, graduate on time and feel ready for the world of college or careers,” Dr. Tornatore said.

For more information on how the designations are determined, visit the State Education Department’s website.
