LHS Service in Action
Serving the Homeless:
Theater students collaborated with staff at Truman Medical Center to serve a meal to 200+ individuals ranging in ages from 2 - 80, who need support due to circumstances of homelessness or poverty.
12 Days of Giving for Outreach International:
Students in Spanish classes participated in the 12 Days of Giving and collected donations to benefit Outreach International. Read more about "Class in Session: 12 Days of Giving for High School Students."
Organizing Safe Halloween:
This event, organized by StuCo provides a fun, non-scary environment for our littlest Bluejays to come play games and trick-or-treat. The food and cash donations help supply Key Club's Snack Pack program. We were able to collect enough items to fill their pantry twice over, and enough cash to provide fresh fruits, veggies, milk, etc. for three months!
Packing Snacks with Harvesters:
StuCo packed over 750 bags of food for young children to take home over the weekends when they won't receive school lunches.
Cooking for Senior Citizens:
StuCo students cooked a meal for the residents at the senior assisted living residence Liberty Place. They hosted a sit-down dinner of spaghetti and meatballs and waited on the residents who thoroughly enjoyed it!
Organizing Donations to Hillcrest:
The thrift store through Hillcrest Hope receives tons of donations and then has to sort through all them and get them stocked on the floor of the store. StuCo students helped sort and hang up clothes to be ready for sale.
Creating a Playroom at Synergy Services:
StuCo students volunteered their time to help at the women's shelter with Synergy Services. They helped organize and pack away holiday items and turned a storage room into a playroom for the children residing there.
Members of the Breakfast Club made flags and food for the teachers who have served the military at our school.
Donating to Local Food Bank:
Members of the Medical Leaders of Tomorrow donated cans to a local food bank.
Cleaning the LHS Outdoor Classroom:
The Environmental Club has worked to clean and maintain the outdoor classroom.
Creating Snack Packs for LPS Students:
The LHS Key Club delivered 17 bags of food for student at Liberty Academy to take home each weekend. We get all the donations, pack the food and deliver to the Academy. We have a pantry that we keep organized and stocked.
Teaching Fire Safety and Doing Highway Cleanup:
Serteens and Leadership students went to older houses on the square that didn't have fire alarms or working fire alarms. We delivered the flyers, they called and set up appointments with the fire station and the adults in Sertoma. For Highway Cleanup we benefitted the Liberty/KC community by picking up litter on the sides of the highway.
Supporting the LPS Diversity Festival:
Diversity Club members contributed to the LPS Diversity Festival through support in organizing and facilitating a booth.
Caroling at Benton House:
Members of German Club brought joy to residents at Benton House of Tiffany Springs by singing carols.
Weeding the LHS Rose Garden:
Liberty Jays and Lady Jays Rugby Club worked as a team to get the job done quickly and each person helped with various aspects of weeding, trimming the dead branches and removing some of the dead plants. It gave the players a sense of pride in a job well done to improve their campus as well as a sense of accomplishment to get a daunting task completed (they weren't excited about the thorns)!
