Teaching Kids the Dangers of Smoking

On the third Thursday of every November, smokers around the nation come together to take part in the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout. This event challenges smokers to quit using tobacco products and provides them with resources to stay away. Tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the world, which is why the Great American Smokeout remains an important event.

Your Good Will Deserves Our Thanks

The generosity and good will of Liberty families raised $652 for our recent Goodwill Fundraiser. The teachers, administrators, and staff of Liberty Phoenix would like to express appreciation for the support of all the parents who consistently help us reach our fundraising goals.

History Of Halloween

What do you think of when you hear the word Halloween? Eating an endless amount of treats, playing scary pranks, or carving giant pumpkins may pop into your mind. October 31 brings a day full of costumes and trick-or-treating. But why do we celebrate Halloween? This spooky holiday dates far back and has changed quite a bit over the years.

Don’t Miss Trunk or Treat Night

Join us on October 31, 5-7 p.m., in the Liberty parking lot for Trunk or Treat Night. It’s all the fun of trick or treating, but none of the safety concerns. We’ll have jumping castles, games, music, food, and LOTS of candy!

Discoverer’s Day

The second Monday in October is a U.S. holiday celebrating the discovery of the New World. Discoverer’s Day, also known as Columbus Day, acknowledges Christopher Columbus’ finding of America, as well as the other important early explorers that came after him. Additional notable voyagers include Lewis and Clark, James Cook, Henry Hudson, and Amerigo Vespucci.

Candy Drive for Trunk or Treat Night

From October 1-27, we’re asking students to participate in our Candy Drive by bringing candy to school. The class with the most candy by weight will win a party. All candy will be used for Trunk or Treat Night on October 31.

Goodwill Donation Drive to Help Liberty

From September 27 to October 13, donate your unwanted items by dropping them in the blue Goodwill bins on campus. Part of the cash value will go to Liberty, and the other part will go toward helping Arizona’s unemployed. Who knew your junk could do so much?

Autumnal Equinox
