Welcome to Livingston Christian Schools

If you're looking for Christ-centered teachers, curriculum, and families, look no further than Livingston Christian Schools.  At LCS, students are learning to love Jesus Christ more deeply while growing in academic acuity, athletic proficiency, social maturity, and even philosophical profundity. At LCS nothing is common in the core subjects nor its experienced teachers.  Whether studying calculus or learning phonics, LCS students are guided through a highly rigorous and challenging curriculum designed to prepare graduates for the college and career of their choosing.  While excelling academically Livingston Christian students also have the opportunity to immerse themselves in sports teams and clubs.  Social development comes easily for some students, but those who struggle will consistently experience the care and love of their teachers and support staff along with their classmates.  Scriptural love is an action of care for others that LCS students are guided to live and embrace, with the understanding that it is what Jesus expects of each of us at LCS.

From the Desk of Mr. Nast

It’s always encouraging to me when our staff and students receive compliments from people outside the school.  With that in mind here are two such notes from last week.

Hi Mrs. Nazione,

My name is Michael Holden. I am not sure if you remember me but you were my Algebra 1 teacher and I think you might have been my English teacher as well in 8th grade back in 2007-2008. I wanted to email you because I wanted to let you know how big of a difference you made in my life. I remember being loud, very distracted, often tired, and usually silly in nearly every class I was in so I am sure it was the same when I was in yours. It turned out that I had ADHD and I wasn't officially diagnosed until high school, so I'm sorry about that.

One of the things I remember about you was how patient and kind you were to me. I remember not understanding things or not wanting to do my work, but you helped me through it. I remember you giving me tools to help me be successful and gently helping me stay on task. Schoolwork was hard for me then and I did not like it, but you made it better.

I was a Bible major in college and I became a youth pastor immediately after here in Austin, TX where I live now. I started working at a school to supplement my income and I loved it so much that I got my certification and I am now a 3rd grade teacher! The reason I am a teacher now is in part to the work you did for me in 8th grade. My parents still talk about you and how wonderful you were for me.

For everything you did, I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for all the homework, the gentle reminders, the patience, the support, that one time you let us watch a YouTube video in class, and for the example you set that I try to follow now in my own classroom. You are a blessing to every student who enters your classroom. I hope you are having your best year yet!

Blessings,

Michael Holden

And here is one from our elementary school spiritual life speaker last week, Jerry Jacoby.  He refers not only to a teacher but our students, as well.

Dear Ted,
We have said our ‘goodbyes’ and given our ‘thank yous’ but I have to add a further comment about what I observed at Livingston Christian this week.
 
First, I know we both agree that this was God’s work and we thank Him for what transpired.
 
But may I add that I have rarely seen a group of elementary students better focused, more courteous and attentive than I saw this week. You obviously have a staff which creates a safe, well-ordered environment for your kids. Your school is a calm, happy place! I just did chapel and never had to worry about discipline or attention issues. Thank you.
 
I got to observe Mrs. Johnson in action with several classes. She is an unusually talented and experienced musician and teacher. Please do not pass my comments along to her as I have already shared my opinions about her work with her and I wouldn’t want her to get a big head! ;)  I very often find kids today who don’t like to sing and cannot carry a simple melody. Observing Mrs. Johnson in action I saw kids who are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed singing out with great gusto.
 
Jerry

Fortunately, these are the teachers who are working with your children each day.  They and the rest of our team are who make LCS a tool in God’s hand.

Honor Roll and Principal’s List Qualifications

We have been reviewing the ‘Honor Roll/Principal List” policies, specifically the protocol for qualifying for either the honor roll or principal list. The current policy states, ‘Each quarter, grades from every class will be averaged to determine if a student qualifies for the Honor Roll. If a student’s average is 90% - 94.9% then he/she qualifies for the Honor Roll.” The principal’s list current language states, “Each quarter, grades from every class will be averaged to determine if a student qualifies for the Principal’s List. If a student’s average is 95% or higher, he/she qualifies for the Principal’s List.” The new language for the honor roll and principal’s list designations is as follows: “Each quarter, grades from every class must be 90% - 94.9% to qualify for the Honor Roll.” The principal’s list new language is, “”Each quarter, grades from every class must be 95% or higher to qualify for the Principal’s List.” The new language is effective the first quarter of the 2019-2020 school year.
