Many people think ASB is simply AP Poster Making. While ASB does make amazing posters to decorate the walls of our school, it shouldn’t be the only thing they are known for. ASB here at Liberty does so much to improve our school for the better while creating an environment where more people actually...

Be grateful we can talk

  Typically, Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for what you have in your life. While somewhat heartless, sometimes the best way to realize what you’re grateful for is by looking at how terrible other places are. Right now, in places such as Russia, political dissenters are being act...

When Thanksgiving comes around each year, we spend a lot of time thinking about the people who have shaped us into the people we are today: family, friends, teachers, even our pets. A lot of us don’t consider the people that make our lives easier on a daily basis. For me, it’s Mrs. Olsson. For...

As my #SeniorSZN of Cross Country comes to an end and the realization of my running career being over soon starts to sink in, I’m realizing now more than ever how thankful I am for this amazing sport and team. While Cross Country might not receive the attention or a fanbase other sports do, it’s...

Students at other high schools may say their classrooms look like drab office buildings or, even worse, like prisons. But here we’re different. Our classrooms are pretty and colorful, and with just a glance around, you can see why. Thanks to the many teachers who decorate their rooms with informative, a...

You know the feeling: you’ve just left chemistry class, and you can’t fathom the idea of having to sketch another warming or cooling curve. If you were attending Issaquah High School, you would be forced to do your chemistry homework that night in order to turn it in the next class.   Luckily,...

An inclusive environment, friendly faces, and a “we are one” mentality are all spectacular attributes of our school. This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for being able to attend Liberty all four years of my high school education.   As a freshman, high school was an intimidating jungle gym,...

Rain garden brings needed light to Liberty

It started out as a mud pit—a giant sandbox, a place for construction workers to push piles of dirt to and fro. Then, for a while, it was a tree and shrub graveyard, the skeletal, brown branches shivering in the cold. Now, most of us still aren’t sure what it is. Some have said Reischl requested...

Werre’s secret stash is an oasis for students

Ugh not again. You’re wearing a skirt and you completely forgot to put on moisturizer after shaving your legs. The whole point of wearing a skirt is to show off those shiny legs that are supposed to glow like the diamonds they are, but now they look like ashy, barren concrete. Your hair is also looking...

High school is a place of stress. Stress for the future, the present, and even from regrets of the past. Sometimes, even the sight or the thought of the school building can fill a person with anxiety and dread at all of the pressures that come from it. And for this reason, I have become immensely grateful...

Liberty’s best-kept secret: water bottle filling stations

This year, I am most thankful for Liberty's water bottle filling stations. While there may only be two in the school, they make a huge impact on the small subset of the student population that has become aware of them. Last year, there was just one water bottle filling station. It was in the 6000...

Writing letters of recommendation, making sure everyone graduates on time, and helping students with their everyday stresses: the counselors' at Liberty are incredibly helpful people that I wish I knew about before this year, because they have helped me more than I realized they could in just the last...
