October 15-19: Livingston Christian Schools will celebrate the Michigan v Michigan State rivalry by raising funds for Simon and Chocrean, our sponsored children in Uganda. During the week, students and staff will pick their team and can wear Wolverine or Spartan spirit wear all week long, get candy for making a donation, and enter lunchtime competitions. Just $1,500 will provide tuition, room and board for both students for an entire year!

Have you noticed the candy collection basket in the foyer of the school entrance? It's for the Naz Fall Funfest. The Naz is looking for plenty of helpers for this event! Please contact Miss Dawn at email@example.com to get sign up. We also need lots and lots of candy. If you're a Naz attender, please consider volunteering. Even if you're not, we can all add to the candy collection.
The LCS Fall Auction has the potential to be our biggest fundraiser of the year! Our goal is to raise $26,000 which means we need about 250 auction items. We are asking each school family to secure one item to be auctioned off.
A long-time friend and supporter of our school is looking for a household manager/nanny. "We need an Alice!" was the quote to be exact. (Those of you old enough to remember The Brady Bunch know what that means.) If you know of someone who might be interested in a career as a household manager/nanny, please put them in contact with the school office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 810-900-1200)
One of the challenges our school has is the diversity in transportation to the school each morning. Some students drive themselves, some come with parents, and some come in carpools. We understand that on some days there will be emergencies that delay a timely arrival, particularly in the winter months. However, when the weather is cooperative, as it has been so far, we ask that families plan to be on time with their children. When teachers have to delay instruction or are interrupted by late arrivals it creates a disconnect in the educational process. We thank each of you who make promptness a priority for your family. And we encourage those who struggle with this matter to re-evaluate your plan for conveying your children to school. Beginning the day with everyone present makes a big difference in the instructional process. Thanks for your help.
Conferences are Tuesday, November 13th! PreK-5th grade will be an assigned time- fill out the form to advise us of your time preference. 6th-12th grade teachers are available throughout the day (8:30am-6:00pm) on a first-come, first-served basis.
Congratulations to John Harris, Ryan Keller, the Sullivan kids, as well as McKinley, Eli, Jake and Olivia! Visit the Good Samaritan and Student of the Month pages to hear about why we're so proud of these students.
We have volunteers to lead a DI Team but can always use more. If you have already notified us that your family is interested, please attend the meeting after school next Monday, October 15, if possible. If you are still considering the idea of exploring Destination Imagination, read on for the details: It has been a couple of years since LCS placed a team in Destination Imagination, which is a team building “club” in which students work on a challenge and present their solution/presentation to a group of judges in March. The teams are age based, so students compete against other teams comprised of the same aged students. It is a lot of fun for the students and provides a team-building opportunity for younger students. Plus, it is monetarily inexpensive. At LCS, the teams typically meet once a week after school to work on the challenge. It’s a lengthy commitment, but a club that reaps significant benefits. Our greatest need is to find adult sponsors who can share the time with the students for a period of weeks. Fortunately, if there are two or three adults willing to work together with a team, they can alternate weekly responsibilities. We will be holding a meeting for interested parents on Monday, October 15 immediately after school in room 5 to discuss the program and the benefits of being involved. If your child is in first through eighth, drop in and see if DI is something for your family. If you have an interest in having your child participate and/or are able to assist with managing the team complete the DI Interest Form available when you click "Read More." Destination Imagination, Inc. is a leading educational nonprofit dedicated to teaching students the skills needed to succeed in school, their careers and beyond. We develop project-based learning programs that blend STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education with the arts and social entrepreneurship. Through our programs, students use the creative process to turn their ideas into reality and learn invaluable skills through the process including: Creative & Critical Thinking Team Building Problem Solving Risk Taking Project Management Perseverance Self-Confidence
