       Hello Liberty PTSA Families . . .

As we wrap us the year, we would like to thank you for joining, volunteering and donating to supporting Liberty PTSA. Here is a recap of accomplishments this year, despite the pandemic...

Due to your financial support, this year we were able to give over $5,000 in Classroom Enrichment Grants for the following:

•  Liberty Science Dept. "Gizmo" Program used to provide science demonstrations for Chemistry and Lab Methods classes

•  Liberty Math Department Grant providing a set of 30 graphing calculators for an entire math classroom, benefitting Math Classes for grades 9-12 (including AP Stats and AP Calculus). 

•  Liberty PBSES Student Recognition Program Grant for recognizing students nominated for demonstrating positive contributions to LHS Patriot Values (P.A.T.'s).

•  Liberty Student Scholarship Education Grant which funds educational experiences, testing fees, and other programs for Liberty students.

Thank you for support of the Liberty PTSA Outreach program. We were able to fulfill several requests for specific clothing, personal care items, supplemental food, as well as school supplies for Liberty students in need. Your generous support allows all students in our school to have the opportunity to thrive!

Our PTSA Class of 2021 Senior Events Committee was able to provide Senior Treat Days, Decorations for the Senior Night at the Stadium, and give a special Gift/Gift Card to every Liberty Senior. Thank you for celebrating our Seniors!

Our PTSA Senior Class Yard Signs sold out TWICE! Liberty PTSA is happy to design these signs each year for our Senior Class! Thanks to our Yard Sign Committee for your great work! Stay tuned for a new design for Class of 2022 in the Fall!

The Liberty PTSA Staff Appreciation Committee found a special way to welcome Liberty staff back in the Fall and provide Charcuterie trays to staff for Staff Appreciation Week in May. We look forward to returning to more events next year!

Additionally, Liberty PTSA helps fund the Issaquah PTSA Council ParentWiser Program which provides Parent Ed seminars throughout the year. As a Liberty PTSA member, admission is free to these events! This year ParentWiser hosted 10 online seminars!

Liberty PTSA will be organizing the National PTA Reflections program again in the Fall. The 2021-2022 theme is "I Will Change the World By . . ." Visit the PTSA website at www.libertyhighptsa.com for details. Congratulations to Liberty finalists who advanced to district and state in '21!

There are additional opportunities to help our community over the summer at the Issaquah Food Bank’s Summer Lunch program and Tools4School. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful, supportive community of families. Thank you!  

We appreciate all of your support of Liberty PTSA, and please remember to join, donate, and sign up for volunteer opportunities in August during the school RSVP process. To our graduating families - we wish your graduate good luck!

Congratulations to our 2021 Liberty Outstanding Educators! 

Each year the Liberty High School PTSA presents this award to individuals who go above and beyond the normal expectations of their job to make outstanding contributions to provide a quality, challenging, and beneficial learning environment, while recognizing that not all children learn in the same way. Nominations are submitted by Liberty parents, guardians or community members.

The Outstanding Educator Award is a Washington State PTA Award. It can be given to a teacher, specialist, paraeducator, support staff, or administrator. Each Award Recipient is presented with a plaque and pin, their name is engraved on a plaque in the Liberty Office, and a donation is made to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Program in their name.

Before announcing this year’s recipients, the Liberty PTSA would like to thank ALL of our Liberty staff for their efforts during this challenging year. This year has not been easy, and we want express our appreciation for your commitment to our students’ education.

The Liberty High PTSA is pleased to announce the 2021 Outstanding Educator Award Winners and read excerpts from some of their actual nominations: 

Congratulations to Outstanding Educator…Ms. Vicki Kenney!

“Vicki has been instrumental in helping our students navigate the challenges of high school…whether it was by helping formulate a balanced schedule that suits their learning style, supporting their 504 needs, helping them navigate challenges with teachers or peers, or simply being a trusted adult to listen.”

“Vicki was so responsive to any question we had as parents, and was easy to reach and accessible. She has made a huge difference in the success of our two boys at Liberty High and we are extremely grateful.”

“Ms. Kenney was a literal lifesaver to our family. When my son was having mental health struggles, Vicki was one of the first people he reached out to and she went above and beyond to get him and our family the help we needed. She spent time not only talking to him, but to me (parent).”

“In a year that was anything but normal, Ms. Kenney cared about the mental health of the students.”

Thank you, Ms. Kenney, for your dedication to our Liberty students and Congratulations on your 2021 Outstanding Educator Award!

Congratulations to Outstanding Educator…Ms. Hillary Cohen

“Hillary gave our son confidence, provided confidentiality and gained his trust. She was an additional support person, other than his parents, for our son to develop a plan to finish the year and pass his classes.”

“Hillary counseled my Liberty student and provided mental health resources and study habit suggestions to assist with online learning and the heavy homework load. Hillary made such a difference and encouraged confidence building so that my daughter could make it through the year and complete her classwork.”

“My daughter was really struggling at the beginning of the year in her classes, plus with depression and medical issues. Counseling sessions with Ms. Cohen have made a huge difference and have impacted our daughter in a positive way.”

“Hillary was instrumental in making a difference to our daughter’s outlook, management of stress, and ability to set goals for the future. We are so happy that she is looking forward to next year at Liberty. She is going to make it.”

“I did not know we had a teen health counselor from Swedish available for students to meet with until I saw Hillary’s mental health presentation at a PTSA meeting last year. Additionally, Hillary hosted virtual meetings for all parents in our district to provide families with solutions to address mental health concerns.”

Thank you Ms. Cohen, for your work with so many of our Liberty students and Congratulations on your 2021 Outstanding Educator Award!
