What is Liberty Hour?
Liberty Hour is a flex time intended for academic, extracurricular, and social involvement so that LHS students can maximize the high school experience. We believe learning how to prioritize time and balance multiple academic, extracurricular, and social demands is a skill set necessary for student success and is developed through practice and coaching. Liberty Hour provides an opportunity for students to develop and use these decision-making skills.
Liberty Hour Options:
Students will select ONE of the following to attend each day. Once Liberty Hour begins, students are expected to remain in that location for the entire Liberty Hour time.
Students may attend academic tutoring with available teachers.
Students may attend club meetings when held.
Students may work independently or meet with peers in a common space (Cafeteria/Commons, Lower Jay, or LMC).
Make the most of Liberty Hour
- Stay on top of your grades and upcoming assignments, tests, or projects to determine when you might need extra support from a teacher or when you should use your time to study alone or with a group.
- Use a weekly planner to outline your goals and priorities for each day. Select tasks that will take most or all of the 35 minutes. Quicker tasks, such as printing a paper or turning in a completed assignment, should be completed before school, after school, or during class.
- Check the Liberty Hour LEH system to find out if you have been assigned tutoring by a teacher and come prepared with your books, notes, assignments, and questions.
- Get involved by selecting clubs of interest and attending meetings on designated days.
- Get your social fix by attending tutoring and clubs with friends.
- Manage distractions by using a time management planner and focusing on tasks that are important!
