  • SENIORS!  Don't miss out on important information regarding the Class of 2015.  Check out our Senior Page by following the Quick Links on the right or clicking HERE.  
  • ALL students must be registered with Infosnap. This is the registration service we began using this school year to keep electronic records for student information. Family Snapcodes [access codes] were given out at the beginning of the year. If you have misplaced your Snapcode (which is needed for online registration) please contact the school registrar. One of the great things about Infosnap is you only need to fill out information once for all of your children. Another positive benefit of Infosnap is that for future years, you will only have to update information. It is very important that you register with Infosnap as this replaces the emergency card system we previously used. We appreciation your attention to this matter!  Please follow the links provided on the homepage of BCPS:  http://bedford.sharpschool.net/ under General Notifications on the home page.

  • EOMLiberty High School is pleased to announce our February Employee of the Month, Ms. Chrissy Kim.  Ms. Kim is a math teacher who teaches Algebra I, Algebra II and Algebra Functions. Ms. Kim is an energetic, kind, hard-working and extremely pleasant and professional teacher. She consistently makes time to stay after school and tutor her students as well as any and all others who need remediation in the area of math. It is not uncommon to find students in Ms. Kim’s class before school, during lunch and during her planning receiving additional help or simply enjoying the company of their favorite teacher. In addition to teaching math, Ms. Kim is assisting our theatre director, Mrs. Shayna Crews with our school play. She is also a highly skilled pianist who uses her talents to assist and liven up the school productions and rehearsals. Ms. Kim’s dedication, talents, enthusiasm and all-around wonderful disposition work continuously to improve Liberty High School, well outside of her classroom. Ms. Kim received a bundle of gifts provided by several generous businesses in Bedford including a lovely arrangement of flowers from Frederick’s Flowers, an oil change from Berglund of Bedford, a free lunch from Olde Liberty Station, a free meal and drink each week for a month from McDonald’s in Bedford, a free meal from Wendy’s and a free sub from the Bedford Subway.  Liberty High School is proud of the accomplishments of Ms. Chrissy Kim and thanks these generous businesses for their support of Liberty High School.  Minutemen Succeed…No Exceptions!

  • Deputy ClarkWe sure are thankful for our awesome School Resource Officer (SRO) Deputy Daniel Clark and it's good hear that other people appreciate Deputy Clark as well.  From a visiting parent from another school said: "Your deputy that was on duty there last night for the game was the nicest, deputy I have ever encountered at a school. He had a smiling face from the time he opened the door for my little boy to enter the building until we left the gym. He has left a lasting impression with us.  My 7 year old is not your ordinary 7 year old. He is a people person. Everyone is his friend. Your deputy spoke to him and they talked at times during the 2 hours we were there. They even high fived a couple of times.  You should be proud to have him on your team!"  We are!

Anderson, Executive Vice President of Working In Support of Education:  "We are truly proud of your students’ accomplishment.
