Class Picture Day Tomorrow!
Tomorrow (Friday, February 23rd) is class picture day! In addition to the class photos, we will be offering spring portraits as well. The optional portrait will only be taken for those students who have their envelopes with them at the time of their class photo so therefore, late orders for the spring portraits cannot be accepted. All students will be in the group class photos. Also, the office cannot make change, so please plan accordingly. Please see the schedule below for your student’s picture time and make sure your student is on time to school to ensure their participation.

District STEM Fair and Art Show
This weekend (Saturday, February 25th) is the Sumner School District STEM Fair. Good luck to all our Liberty Ridge students who have worked so hard on their projects. We know you’ll represent LRE well and we are so proud of you! Regardless if you have done a project or not, we encourage all families to attend this free, fun event! There are fun exhibits and shows from the Pacific Science center, rockets to build, robotics and so much more!
The Sumner School District has transformed the traditional science fair into a STEM Fair – showcasing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Math activities, technology and engineering projects will be featured along with science fair projects at this annual event, and held in conjunction with the District Art Show.
STEM Fairs give students the opportunity to model the work of professional research scientists. Students who develop science projects learn or improve their skills in scientific method and experimentation, logical thinking and problem-solving, writing and public speaking, and advanced library research. The District STEM Fair represents first, second, and third place winners from each grade level at every school, along with two honorable mention entries. Students will present projects to science fair judges, with the top projects moving on to regional competition in March.
The STEM Fair will be held in conjunction with the 8th annual District Art Show. This annual show celebrates the arts in Sumner School District schools with pieces of student work in various media including watercolor, oil, charcoal, colored pencil, mixed media, and ceramics on exhibit. This year the show will include digital photographs by middle and high school students.

We are so happy to be able to extend childcare to children 3 years old and up! Younger children will remain with parents. When children learn to “flex the optimistic muscle” they learn to face challenges knowing they can succeed! They know how to apply the social and academic skills they have been learning since they were very little. They act with confidence, compassion, and individuality.
