Congratulations to 2016-2017 Liberty PTSA Golden Acorn Winners: 

Libbie FitzGerald and Kim Weiss 

Libbie is a long time PTSA volunteer who is our Issaquah Schools Foundation Ambassador, Outreach Co-Chair, Baccalaureate Co-Chair, PTSA Nominating Committee member and Staff Appreciation committee. She also volunteers at LHS Boys Swim Team meets, LHS Concessions, and the Seattle Humane Society. Her outstanding 'above and beyond' volunteer efforts for our PTSA, school and community show how truly deserving she is of this Award. Congratulations Libbie!

 Kim works tirelessly for the children at Liberty High School and Issaquah! She is currently our PTSA Outreach Co-Chair, who helped implement the new student breakfast program and help organize Swap & Shop program. She serves on the board of the Issaquah PTSA Council, works with Friends of Youth, the Issaquah Food Bank, and the Issaquah Basic Needs Committee. She helped pilot the "Lunch for the Break" program, which was implemented this year district wide in all schools. In her spare time she volunteers for LHS Robotics and ROTC and also delivers food for the Humane Society. Kim is an asset to our community, we are so lucky to have her here at Liberty. Congratulations Kim and Thank you!

Community Committee Members Needed Every four years, the Issaquah School District asks local voters to approve levies to pay for educational essentials that the state does not fund, including school buses, classroom technology, and about 20 percent of the operations budget. Because our current levies expire next year, the district is forming a community committee now to help plan the renewal levy measures. If you are interested in representing Liberty High School on the committee, please click here for more information or pick up an application in the main office and return it by Friday, April 7. Committee members will consider the overall need, proposed content, total cost, and tax impacts of the ballot measures and present a final recommendation to the superintendent. The commitment is several Wednesday evening meetings in May and June.
