On their way to school

Five Crossing Guards serve the neighborhood around Thomas Jefferson ES. The crossing guards are employees of the Bethlehem City Police Department. Many of Thomas Jefferson’s students walk to and from school, and the crossing guards keep them safe at some of North Bethlehem’s busiest intersections. Some of the guards also cross students from Northeast MS and other local schools. They know many of the students by name, and with almost 95 years of combined experience, they know some of the students’ parents and grandparents too.

Liberty HS alumni, students Jam

Any other time of year, the street between Broad and the Central Moravian Church is known as Main Street. However, during Musikfest, the street becomes a venue named Provident Bank Main Street. It has all the fanfare that Main Street traditionally has plus performing stages for concerts, street vendors, buskers and music as far as the ears can hear. One of the groups performing routinely on Provident Bank Main street this year, was a group of current Liberty HS students and alumni who called themselves the Orbital Drumline.
