Liberty Bell Junior-Senior High School

LB Mountain Lion Mascot LogoGreetings Class of 2023 and MVSD Families,

The 2023 Methow Valley Graduation and Commencement Ceremony is only a week away! Starting at 6 p.m. on June 9, at the Liberty Bell stadium, we will be celebrating the accomplishments of the Class of 2023. All family, friends, and community members are invited to attend the Graduation and Commencement Ceremony

One notable adjustment from our last update is that graduates will be able to reserve up to 10 seats for family members. Additionally, family and friends are invited to attend the MVSD Awards Assembly and Scholarship Ceremony at Liberty Bell. See the agenda below for details.

Following a longstanding tradition, siblings of graduates will be invited to serve as flower bearers at the beginning of the ceremony. Graduates with no siblings are welcome to appoint one special person in their life to serve in this role. Similar to last year, there will be no sibling rehearsal. They will be prompted to line the center aisle prior to graduates entering.

Please see the draft 2023 Graduation Week Agenda for additional events and details, including our all-school awards assembly and scholarship ceremony.

Please submit all questions to Liberty Bell Principal Crosby Carpenter or ILC Principal Sara Mounsey.

Congratulations Class of 2023!

Crosby Carpenter
Principal, Liberty Bell High School
