UPCOMING BOOK FAIR
We are looking forward to our upcoming Book Fair. Mark your calendars!
The Book Fair will be held June 3 – June 7 in Room #213 during all lunch breaks. As always, there will be a great selection of books. You will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.
If unable to attend during these times, online shopping may be the option for you. Shop online by going to: http://bookfairs.scholastic.com/homepage/libertymiddleschool1 anytime May 26 – June 8. Any books you order will be shipped free to the school.
A morning event will also be planned as a third option. Details will be announced at a later date.
The library will soon be getting bean bag chairs, a sign for announcements and, of course, new books purchased with “Scholastic Dollars.” Thank you for your support!
This Friday we will be having a “Blackout” themed spirit day and dance for all the students here at Liberty. The dance will be held from 3:00-4:30 p.m. in the lunch room here at Liberty, and for the first time the dance will be FREE!
We’re making this dance free in order to encourage all students to attend—it’ll be an hour and a half of fun and dancing with their friends, and a great event to be a part of.
As always, we could use volunteer chaperones to supervise the event. If you are interested in chaperoning or have any questions, please email Stephen Baranowski at email@example.com
It’s always great to bring together all of our students and build on top of the great community we have here at Liberty. Go Lions!

Camas Grad Night: Flocking 2013
Throughout April and May pink flamingos can be spotted in various yards around town. If you are wondering why, the answer is the Camas Grad Night Committee is out prowling neighborhoods placing their flocks in unsuspecting homeowners’ yards. For a small donation, you too can have your neighbors or friends in Camas flocked! All donations received go toward the 2013 drug- and alcohol-free grad night party for the senior classes of both Camas High School and Hayes Freedom High School. Contact Nadine Knight at 360-910-5435 to arrange for a flocking. This is a link to the order form: http://chs.camas.wednet.edu/seniors/files/2013/03/Flock-a-Friend-2013.pdf
