Yearbooks will be distributed on May 24th. We will have yearbooks signing day on the same day as Patriot Games. 8th graders will have yearbook signing time in the morning, and play Patriot Games in the afternoon. 7th graders will do the opposite by competing in their Patriot Games in the morning, and yearbook signing in the afternoon. There is a list in each team of all students who have already purchased a yearbook. Check and see if your name is on the list!
If you don't see your name, you haven't ordered a yearbook. There are several extras that will be available. Dr. Hawley is keeping a list of students who want one of the extra copies, so far there are only 13 on that list. We will have 30 extra copies. Yearbooks are now $40 and it's first come, first served.
Stop by the library and talk with Dr. Hawley about how you can still get a yearbook. You won't want to miss it!
Team Washington has several wonderful projects on display in the library! Stop by and see the scale models they created of all the famous landmarks they studied this year. Come see the Statue of Liberty, Big Ben, the Tower of London and many more. This was a math assignment and the results are pretty impressive!
Attention all Liberty Bell Students:
If you have a lunch account in the café and know that you owe an obligation to that account, please……… settle your debt today, Friday May 19th. Report cards will be held for obligations still owed for café, library books and fines and any textbooks or materials owed to a classroom.
An announcement from our counselors:
Students and faculty help us build our acts of kindness chain here at Liberty Bell. For the next couple of weeks any random act of kindness may be rewarded with a chain link to add to the kindness chain that will be on display in the cafeteria. As small an act as holding a door for someone else may be awarded, but not all acts will be awarded a link. The top 3 teams with the most links as we start patriot games will be given extra points. Students if you receive a link please write your name and homebase on the chain and give it to your counselor to add to the chain. Remember these are random acts of kindness and not all acts will be rewarded. Have fun and be kind!!
We will no longer be taking orders for yearbooks. When the yearbooks arrive in MAY, there will be 40 extra copies that we will sell on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you did not preorder one, you will still have a chance to get one of those 40 books on Yearbook Distribution Day.
