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

This is a good time to consider all the fun you’ve had this summer, and there’s still a month to go.  I hope you continue to enjoy the beautiful weather we’ve experienced - lots of warmth and sunshine. Maybe you’ve also been able to take a trip or two to a cottage or resort as a family.  Whatever your plans have been or continue to be I wish all of you the enjoyment of what summer embodies. Just a few days ago fourteen of our students and parents participated in Swim Across America, an organization whose goal is to fight cancer.  I wasn’t in town to participate, but I was so pleased with the efforts of our student council to corral an assortment of folks to volunteer about three hours of their time to participate in the event. It was also a time to demonstrate to Mr. Baranek how much we want to support him in his battle with cancer, as he became the focus of our efforts.  I simply say thank you to those who participated, but more importantly, thank you to God for allowing Mr. Baranek to have come through the past months of chemo and all the effects it’s had on his body. He’s endured the last of the treatments and has every reason to believe his cancer is gone for good. While I’ve enjoyed the weather and change of pace, for me, what God has granted Mr. Baranek is the highlight of my summer.

August Open Houses

As in past years, we are going to hold open houses for new families during the month of August. Each August Tuesday evening from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. we will welcome families who are seeking a new home for their children. We know from many years of recruiting families that you are our most important source of influence. You can refer families from your church, neighborhoods, extended families, and other social and professional organizations in which you are involved. Please invite families with school-aged children to attend one of our open houses being held each Tuesday in August from 6:30 p.m - 8:00 p.m. We are advertising the open houses on WAAM and SMILE radio stations. Last year we distributed to our families signs to be placed in the ground at strategic locations (may be your houses) that advertise the school’s enrollment time. If you are still in possession of one of these please display it wherever you feel it will receive the most viewers. If you are not able to display it please return it to the office for redistribution. They are one way we can try to get our name noticed without the high cost of electronic media.

Mark Your Calendar!

On Thursday, 8/29, we will be holding our annual early childhood and kindergarten orientation gatherings at 5:30 p.m. followed by the All School Orientation and Meet the Teacher Night, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. While this seems a long way off the next four weeks will fly by quickly. Therefore, please mark your calendars for the events of that day and plan on attending. We’ll be providing more details in mid-August.

Falcons Athletics Summer Updates

LCS Falcon Athletics has had an exciting summer with many of the teams holding practices and scrimmages in preparation for the upcoming 2019-2020 seasons. Girls Volleyball Teams are expecting full rosters at the Varsity, JV, and 5th/6th Grade levels and have held regular optional practices throughout the summer. The girls have competed hard by attending camps and participating in club volleyball throughout the spring/summer. Varsity/JV Boys Basketball just completed their summer basketball season with the week-long Falcon Camp and have had multiple game nights against Whitmore Lake, Charyl Stockwell, and Rudolf Steiner. The guys have improved greatly throughout the summer with a lot of hard work and can’t wait for basketball season to start in November. The Varsity Girls Basketball Team has also been practicing through the summer and will hold their Falcon Girls’ Camp next week for 4th-12th Grade. Over the course of 2 weeks of Boys/Girls basketball camps, the participation has been great with over 40 players that will have attended. Thanks to all of the student-athletes, parents, and coaches who have helped to make this a great summer for LCS Athletics! We are also excited that Coach Tom Jarema has been instrumental in our Soccer and Cross-Country programs for the upcoming Fall of 2019. Turnout has been better than expected in both, so we are looking forward to a great Fall of 2019 with Girls Volleyball, Boys Soccer, and Boys/Girls Cross-Country. Looking forward to a fantastic 2019-2020.......Go Falcons!!!

A Swimming Success

On July 12, our student council headed up a support group for Mr. Baranek and his battle with cancer by volunteering in the Swim Across America fundraising event on Belle Isle. Fourteen school students, parents, and teachers joined in the U/M cancer awareness activity by volunteering to clean up during and after the swimmers finished. Mrs. Burt alerted us to the opportunity and helped guide us in participating in it. Mr. Baranek and everyone who is stricken with cancer will benefit from the efforts of these people. We have had a year in which cancer has deeply affected those associated with LCS. Earlier, Mr. Nazione, husband of LCS teacher Jody Nazione; Mrs. Mahaffy, young wife and mother of LCS family both passed away from the effects of cancer. Alyssa Leighton, teenaged daughter of board member Jeff Leighton has been battling cancer for more than two years, which is currently in remission. Kyril Karoleff, husband of previous teacher, Judy Karoleff, has been battling cancer for more than two years. Trina Mavin, wife of Pastor Kris Mavin, has cancer and is facing surgery and other treatments in the near future. Several staff members are cancer survivors, and there are undoubtedly others at LCS who have previously contracted cancer or are currently involved in battling it. Swim Across America - we thank those who participated in this event to help those who are in need.

Missions Reminder

Have you taken time to pray for Simon and Chocrean, our Ugandan students, this summer? Or how about writing them a note, telling them all you’ve done over the summer. It’s easy to forget about them when we don’t see or speak with them on a regular basis. If you’d like to send them a note simply forward it to laurie@livingstonchristianschools and she will get it to our kids in Uganda.
