Liberty is a small rural school district twenty miles south of Spokane serving the communities of Spangle, Fairfield, Latah, Waverly, Plaza and Mt. Hope. We provide a comprehensive educational program for about 500 students in grades K-12 including FFA, FBLA, robotics, computer assisted drafting, AP courses in English, math, and Spanish as well as interscholastic sports for grades 7-12. Small class sizes and a close family atmosphere combine for success through individual attention and high accountability.
Heart Month Spotlight: Mrs. Gentry
February is national heart month, and Liberty is celebrating the survival story of 6th grade teacher Molly Gentry. Mrs. Gentry suffered a major heart attack widely known as a widowmaker on July 4 this past summer. Thankfully with quick medical intervention, she not only beat the odds by surviving, but is thriving with a newfound focus on her heart health.
On February 21, Mrs. Gentry will don a red dress and join 13 other models who are all recent heart attack survivors for this year’s Go Red for Women luncheon fundraiser for The American Heart Association. We are proud to team with Molly to help in communicating the importance of heart health and encourage education about preventable cardiovascular disease.
Late Start Mondays
School and buses will run one hour late each Monday throughout the year. These mornings are set aside for staff development.
Breakfast will be served on 1-hour late start days, and students will attend all class periods on a slightly condensed schedule.
Attendance calls and morning bus change messages can be left for both schools by pressing option 8. Messages are checked first thing each morning and throughout the day.
Words of Encouragement
Liberty students are focusing on the character trait of ENCOURAGEMENT for the month of February. First graders in Mrs. Anderson's and Mrs. Newton's classes have some inspirational words of encouragement on display, including "Have a great day," "You're the best" and "You rock!"
