Clubs/Extracurricular Activities:

  • Junior Librarians: Fourth grade students can join the Junior Librarians.  This group comes to library on Monday and Thursday mornings.  Each Junior Librarian has their own assigned shelf to manage along with other library tasks.  
  • Chess Club: The library hosts Chess Club three mornings a week.  Anyone can come play chess on Wednesday and Thursday mornings.  On Wednesdays, we often have a quick lesson or group game to learn techniques.  Fridays are limited to more experienced players.
  • Book Club: On Tuesdays, the library hosts rotating book clubs of 10-15 students.  The clubs are announced on WLES and interested students can sign up to participate.  ​
  • LES Art Club: LES Art Club is a creative group of third and fourth graders who meet weekly before school with Mrs. Galaher.  Students work together to share ideas and create beautiful art for school events, our classmates, and our community. Some of our Art Club students also have the opportunity to be on the Production Crew for our upcoming musical, The Aristocats. They will use their artistic talents and skills to build and paint the sets for the show!​
  • Pride Peers: Pride Peers consists of teacher-nominated students demonstrating strong interpersonal communication skills, problem solving abilities, and time management skills. Pride Peers is based on the concept of providing students with various school and community-based activities to learn, practice, and develop skills that will promote leadership and teamwork. The Pride Peers at Liberty Elementary is composed of an exceptional group of students who demonstrate the willingness to help others, take pride in their work, and exhibit independence and the ability to take responsibility. With the guidance and support of teacher advisors, students develop and implement service-based projects within their school community and take an active role in promoting a positive culture and learning environment at Liberty Elementary.
  • Recorder Club:  4th grade students can find success and gain confidence as young, music reading musicians by participating in morning Recorder Club!  This extracurricular club is a fun, motivating way for students to practice note name identification, rhythms, and fingerings on the recorder.  At the heart of this program, there is a positive reward system in which students receive colored "karate belts" to hang from their recorders for each song they learn.  Students also gain experience playing their instruments together as an ensemble.

  • 3rd & 4th Grade LES Musical:  LES will be continuing our school musical tradition by performing Disney’s Aristocats KIDS on May 16th & 18th! Both 3rd grade and 4th grade students will be singing, acting, and dancing onstage, or working behind the scenes to help bring the story and performance to life!  Through this experience, they will gain skills in creativity and collaboration, self-discipline, social skills like confidence and empathy, and academic skills like reading, speaking, and listening.  Students are bound to discover so much about the arts and themselves!
