Many schools and universities hold annual homecomings as a way to welcome back previous students and staff. It’s a reminder that you’re always a Patriot, even after you’ve graduated. At Liberty, it’s also a fun-filled celebration of our school culture, spirit, and traditions—along with a healthy dose of class competition.
Homecoming tickets are now for sale online – no more waiting in line at the ASB Bookkeeper’s office to purchase your homecoming tickets! Here’s how you can purchase your homecoming ticket online:
Go to https://wa-issaquah.intouchreceipting.com/ to sign into your (or your student’s) pay online account. If you need assistance logging in, please contact the ASB bookkeeper at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Once logged in, please select the student for whom you are shopping. Under Shop select Items at Student’s School. On the next screen select the category Dances. On the next screen you will see two items available for sale – Homecoming Ticket for Student with an ASB card, and Homecoming Ticket for Student without an ASB card. Only one of these items will be available for each student to purchase based upon whether or not they have a current year ASB card. There is also the opportunity to make a donation to support students in financial need who would like to attend the Homecoming Dance.
Click on the Homecoming Ticket that is available for your student to purchase. You may only purchase one ticket for each student – each student must purchase their own ticket, even if you are going with a date or in a group.
Next you will be required to answer two questions.
- “Are you bringing a non-LHS guest?” From the drop down box, choose either yes or no.
- “If yes, what is their legal name and school?” If you answered no to the first question, simply answer N/A to the second question. If you answered yes to the first question, please enter your guest’s legal name and school.
You will then finish checking out and pay for your ticket.
If you are bringing a non-LHS guest, you will also be required to complete a guest pass. For more information about guest passes, see question below about buying a ticket for a guest who does not currently attend LHS.
Tickets will be available for sale online from Monday October 3rd through Friday October 14th at 2pm. The dance is on Saturday, October 15th.

For students without an ASB card who purchase on or before Friday October 14th at 2pm, and for non-LHS guests the price is $25. For students who purchase at the door of the dance, regardless of whether or not they have an ASB card, the price is $30.
If you are inviting a guest who does not currently attend LHS, then you will need to complete a Guest Pass form, available from the form boxes on the wall near the Attendance Secretary’s window, or can be printed out online from the LHS Website. Each LHS student may invite only one non-LHS guest. Once you have completed the Guest Pass form, please return it into the main office. The form will be reviewed by your assistant principal, and either approved or not. If not, you will be contacted for additional information. When / if the Guest Pass form is approved, a fee will then be assessed to your account for your guest’s ticket (assuming you have already purchased your own ticket). You must then go online or go to the ASB Bookkeeper’s office to pay for your guest’s ticket. Guest Pass forms must be turned into the main office no later than the end of school on Wednesday October 12th; and guest ticket purchased by 2pm on Friday October 14th.
When you log onto the pay online system, the website will know that you are to receive a discounted ticket. Your price will be reduced from the normal price. Even if the price is $0, you must still go onto the pay online system or to the ASB Bookkeeper’s office to purchase your ticket. This is how we know you plan on attending the Homecoming Dance. Discounted price tickets will NOT be available at the door; they are only available online or from the ASB Bookkeeper's office.
Each class (freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior) hosts a spirit day. There are decorated hallways throughout the school and large class posters in the commons that go along with each spirit day, along with a dress-up competition for the day. There will be lunch and after-school activities on most days, along with a school-wide scavenger hunt (for spirit gear prizes). The week is capped off with a school-wide assembly on Friday afternoon.
The theme is “Movie Picture Madness”
This year’s spirit days include:
We’re kicking off the week with our own Open Mic comedy show. Channel your favorite Adam Sandler movie by wearing oversized basketball shorts and shirt. Need an easier option for dressing up? Wear blue and red instead.
Follow Patriots in Wonderland today with your favorite fairytale or fantasy costume. Or dig out some purple and gold and wear that instead.
Get ready to explore the great beyond with your clone and dress in matching clothes “In a High School in a Galaxy Far, Far Away…” Alternate wear is red and white.
It’s a Nightmare on Patriot Way today with your favorite scary costume. Or wear black and orange. Cause that’s a lot easier than a costume.
Friday is a COLOR WAR spirit day! Freshmen wear white. Sophomores wear green. Juniors wear blue. Seniors wear Patriot Pride.
On Saturday, October 8, we invite all Patriots to join their class officers for Hallway decorating! We will work from 10AM-4PM, lunch provided, and the class with the most students in attendance will win bonus Homecoming competition points for their class.
Our Homecoming assembly begins at 2:00pm in the main gym on Friday, October 14. Seating is limited so guests should plan to sit in the upper gym bleachers.
We wrap up the week with our Homecoming dance on Saturday, October 15 in our Commons; 8:00-11:00pm. Tickets are sale October 3 through October 14 at the bookkeeper and in the Commons at lunches. Early bird tickets are $20 with ASB, $25 without ASB, and $30 at the door. Guests are welcome to attend with a Liberty student; however, a guest pass must be completed and submitted by October 12.
If you’re available, come help your class officers decorate your hallway space on Saturday 10/8 from 10am-4pm. Your class earns points for each student who comes to help. The biggest way to earn points is to dress up EVERY DAY. ASB students will count the dressed-up students during 2nd period each day. These points will be added to the points from the hallway decorations, posters, and tug-of-war competition during the assembly.
