Liberty School teachers were busy in July getting their classrooms ready for the new academic year.
As the school years change, so do the classroom calendars. First-grade teacher Shana Pitts takes down the May calendar to make way for the new year.
Kindergarten teacher Heather Conditt, whose room is next to Pitts', places books in a shelf. Classroom furniture had been set aside over the summer so the floors could be waxed.
A cheerleader camp was held in July. Pictured are camp leaders Leann Wooten and Beth Raline with Wooten's Pug, Rigby. Principal Cort Huffman stops by to talk.
Cheerleaders practice a routine.
Kristen Burton, a seventh-grade ELA teacher, arranges books on a shelf, including "The Invention of Hugo Cabret." One book her class will read this year will be "Uglies," a dystopian story by Scott Westerfeld.
