Welcome Back!! 2017-2018
 
Dear Livsey Leopard Parents/Guardians,

Welcome Back!!!! We are incredibly excited to have you and your children as a part of the Livsey family. The upcoming school year will be filled with many stimulating learning opportunities for all of our students as we strive to improve and exceed prior expectations and goals!  We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work. Together, in partnership, we will continue to foster a culture of learning so that each Livsey Leopard can achieve their highest potential. We fully recognize and appreciate the fact that in order for our students to be successful, they need support from both the home and school. We remain confident that an extremely strong bond between you and your child’s teacher makes an overwhelming difference in your child’s growth and success. With this partnership, we share the responsibility for the success. As a school, we will do our very best, each day to nurture and challenge your child academically. To assist in facilitating school success, please ensure the following:

  • Your child is well rested by having a set bedtime each evening.
  • Your child attends school every day, on time, focused, and ready for a rigorous day of learning.
  • You will monitor and support your child’s reading and writing at home (Encourage your child to read/write at least 30 minutes each day outside of school).
  • You will provide a quiet place and support for your child as he/she completes homework.
  • Your child will go “above and beyond” by giving a minimum of 110% effort on every assignment or task given.
  • Your child informs you and the teacher if he/she does not understand a question/concept or needs extra help.
  • You will limit the amount of television watching/video game playing each day.

You have probably heard the saying, “if you build it, they will come.” Here at Livsey, “if they attend school on time daily and on time and are fully prepared, they will learn.” WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! We need your help by ensuring that your child is fully motivated, self-disciplined and only absent from school when it becomes absolutely necessary. In addition to a strong school-parent partnership, student attendance is a critical component of student success.

 

During the 2017-2018 school year, I am excited to share that we will continue our implementation of STEM and the related instructional practices. Along with our continued work in this area, we will also begin the process for STEM Certification. More to come…….

 

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  On behalf of the Livsey faculty and staff, I extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to volunteer in your child’s classroom and join us for school activities and events We need, we want, and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education!  We cannot do it without you. 

 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your child’s principal.

 

For Children,

 

Jamie L. Wilson, Jr.
