The Liberty Union-Thurston Elementary School
The Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development. As each child discovers and develops his/her unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.
Our school is walking distance from a multi-acre land lab that includes three nature classrooms with benches, walking path, decking over wetlands, and a stream which our students explore as fourth graders.
Students in the second, third and fourth grades competed in a local math competition and scored top honors.
In conjunction with our local public library which is in walking distance from the building, over 200 of our 500 students were issued library cards.
