Mr. & Mrs. Highfield Face Off- Who Got the Pie in the Face?

Livingston Christian Schools is celebrating the Michigan v Michigan State rivalry by raising funds for Simon and Chocrean, our sponsored children in Uganda. During the week, students and staff have picked their team and making donations. Will the Wolverines hold onto their lead or will the Spartans run a Hail Mary just in time? Just $1,500 will provide tuition, room and board for both students for an entire year! Parents are welcome to join the students and staff in the gym at 2:45 on Friday where we will find out which team raised the most money for Simon and Chocrean. If U of M wins, Mr. Highfield will give Mrs. Highfield a pie in her face (and all her beautiful, long hair!) If MSU wins, Mrs. Highfield will give a pie in his face (and beard).

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

One of the goals of LCS is to help our students develop a sense of service toward others.  Service to others falls right into this year’s theme of stewardship, respect, and responsibility and one of our seniors, Hunter Martin, recently demonstrated his mastery of that target.  Bob Chapman, father of Katherine, our assistant principal was diagnosed with a severe health condition a couple of weeks ago. Mr. Chapman has been one of the most hard working LCS volunteers for many years.  In addition to his work ethic he has been known for his gentle spirit toward students and families at the school. When Hunter heard about Bob’s condition he took it upon himself to go to Bob’s house to help him with a project, an LCS cone cart.  After Hunter had completed his classes for the day he and his father drove out to Bob’s house, drove Bob to a welder for the completion of the cart, and then spent time with Bob back at his house. It’s the kind of thing we might expect of adults who understood the importance of supporting others by just spending time with them.  It reminds me so much of the story of Jesus when he visited Mary and Martha's house. Jesus commends Mary because she chose to spend her time with him rather than worry about preparations for a meal or cleaning her house. Hunter has learned and demonstrated what Mary knew. Our time is special to God when we are willing to use it to help others, even when it’s merely being with them as company.  Thank you, Hunter.

Auction... the Good, the Bad and the Money

This year, LCS has set a goal of $26,000 for the annual auction. The bad news is that we only have 50 items to be auctioned off so unless they each go for over $500, we're not going to meet our goal. The good news is there's still another week left for LCS families to procure some donations and make this auction a success. See Wendy at the main office or email her at wbury@livingstonchristianschools.org for more details on how you can get involved.

"Better three hours too soon than a minute too late." - William Shakespeare

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.

Do You Know an Alice?

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 (office@livingstonchristianschools.org or 810-900-1200)
