Over 40 LHS and LMS students participated in a Trinity River Trash Bash on Saturday (9.27.14) in conjunction with National Public Lands Day. It was nice to have the support of our Vice President of the LISD School Board, Lloyd Pierce, as a participant with our students. You can see him in the background of this photo (yellow shirt) making certain we did not leave any students behind! We appreciate the work and support of our LISD School Board members and our wonderful LISD students.
On Monday, February 3rd, the University Interscholastic League released the 2014-15 and 2015-16 Tentative Football and Basketball District Assignments and Reclassification Information. The Liberty Panthers are switching football districts from District 22-3A to District 9-4A Division 2, which includes West Orange-Stark, Orangefield, Hamshire-Fannett, and Hardin-Jefferson. The basketball district, however, will remain the same with the exception of changing from District 22-3A to District 23-4A. UIL added a 6A to equal out the classifications which has led to the Panthers moving up to class 4A. Later this Spring UIL will release the district information on the girls sports and all other spring sports.
