Good Afternoon Liberty Parents/Guardians,
The Liberty Science Olympiad Team is looking for students to be a part of our team for the upcoming season. Mx. Meadows and I, Anthony Juarez, invite all 6th, 7th or 8th grade Liberty students to let out your inner science nerd and join our winning team. The 2020-2021 Science Olympiad team will be completely virtual this year with team practices and competitions being held through Zoom, Google Meets and other online platforms. For more information on about what Science Olympiad is please watch this informational video or visit our team’s website.
Due to personal reasons, I have had to push back our informational team meeting to Wednesday September 23nd at 6:00 pm. If you are interested in being apart of the Liberty Science Olympiad family please email join us next Wednesday or email me at Anthony.firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!

Greetings Sixth Grade Parents,
We understand the crucial role that school transitions have in a student’s educational experience, and we have planned a great experience to help with your child’s sixth grade transition tomorrow with our WEB Orientation. Our 8th grade mentors are excited to get to know and bond with our 6th graders, by playing games and activities over video chat. This is a valuable experience that we can’t pass up, which leads me to my next statement.
Zoom has been experiencing a lot of issues over the past two days, garnering national headlines for outages (Article). As we have worked with our 8th graders the past two days, we have seen some hiccups in the application first hand and anticipate some issues occurring tomorrow. We ask for your grace and understanding as we work to provide an opportunity for connection with your child. We are choosing to move forward despite the issues that have been occurring in hopes that we can provide your child with a positive first impression of Liberty and this school year.
In order to help decrease the potential for issues, please have your child take the following steps (provided by our tech department):
- Limit the number of people who are using your home internet. Don’t forget that streaming devices on your TV could be eating up precious bandwidth.
- Only use Zoom, having other apps and tabs open in the background will eat up processing power. Don’t try to check your email or read the news.
- Keep your audio muted unless you need to talk.
- Start the meeting with your camera turned off until you need it.
- Be plugged into power.
Thank you for your help as we make the best of this. In the unlikely scenario where Zoom is completely uncooperative, we will get messaging out to you all about a postponement and a makeup date. This would come in the same format as this message.
SPECIFIC DETAILS FOR TOMORROW:
Here is the Zoom link for our meeting that begins at 9:00AM: https://camas-wednet-edu.zoom.us/j/92061643743
WHEN YOUR CHILD LOGS IN, PLEASE REMIND THEM TO TYPE THEIR FIRST AND LAST NAME INTO THE BOX WHEN THEY ARE PROMPTED. This will help us sort them into their correct group.
This is a student orientation, so once your child is logged in to the Zoom, please allow them space to learn and be goofy as they complete the activities we have planned.
We look forward to connecting with your child tomorrow!

The question of whether or not to buy school supplies is a tricky one. Usually there are a lot of good deals at this time of the year, but also much of it won’t be needed until we are back in the building. Our school supply list is attached below but it is certainly fine to wait to purchase. For the most part, kids will just need paper and writing utensils along with some way to organize at home. Kids who are in an art class may need a few extra supplies but the teacher will communicate that directly when the time comes. If you are in need of assistance please reach out to our school counselors, we have supplies for anyone in need of them.

This year our Chromebooks reached the end of their lease cycle and we have been in the process of swapping these student devices for new ones. If you have a student in grades 6-12 who still has their old Chromebook, or is new to the district, we have another opportunity for them to get their new device. We will be hosting a Chromebook swap at Odyssey Middle School on August 26, from Noon-6 PM.
Not sure if their Chromebook is old or new? Our new Chromebooks have an attached case that looks like the one below. If you have such a case on your Chromebook, you can disregard this message.
