Today was Spring Signing Day at Liberal High School! Surrounded by their current and former coaches, teachers, teammates, classmates, community members, friends, and most importantly, their families, 11 LHS student-athletes signed their letters of intent to continue their academic and athletic careers at a post-secondary institution. Collectively, these 11 were the largest single group to sign all at once in LHS history. We are so proud of their accomplishments and can't wait to watch them continue to represent Liberal throughout the next chapter of their academic journey. Join us in celebrating these 11 LHS student-athletes!

At tonight's BOE Meeting we celebrated the USD 480 Educator of the Month for March, Meadowlark Interventionist, Mrs. Classen! She is very knowledgeable in what she does and teachers recognize this by frequently seeking her out for support, resources, and strategies. She is well-informed and keeps teachers up-to-date on anything they need to know to be able to provide services to students. With her kind attitude, willingness to provide support, and constant encouragement she is a tremendous asset to everyone at Meadowlark. Mrs. Classen steps in and does all the small things that make a huge impact on them personally, such as assisting with school family activities, helping with lesson plans when a teacher is absent, to escorting students to class, she does it all at Meadowlark! Every school needs a Mrs. Classen and we are so thankful she continues to work at Meadowlark and at USD 480!
