Do you need to get rid of extra art supplies?  We need your help!

PTA is sponsoring a Fall Supply Drive for the two low-tech maker-spaces at Liberty.  We are accepting supply donations starting Tuesday, October 25th, 2022 through Tuesday, November 1st, 2022. 

What is a maker space?  Why is it important?  Why should I help support this?

A maker space is a designated space in a school where students-alongside staff can create, problem-solve, and develop skills, talents, thinking, and mental rigor.  These dedicated spaces afford students more opportunities to expand their learning experience.

Please help us provide much-needed supplies for our Liberty students.  Donated supplies can be new or leftover supplies you have around your house.

Pack the Pantry: LMS Food & Clothing Drive

Would you like to help students and families in our community? Liberty Middle School is trying to restock their resource center with food and clothing items to help families in need.  If you are able to help us with this, please review the list below, and click the button to sign up.  Your assistance can make a huge difference in the lives of others. 

All donations may be dropped off at the Liberty Middle School main office on November 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd, 28th, or 29th. 


Thank you for your support!  More information and a sign-up coming out soon.  Keep your eyes posted.
