Letter from the Principal and Assistant Principal


Dear Livingston Family,

Welcome to a new school year!  We are excited to begin a year at Livingston Elementary School with promises filled with golden opportunities for all of our students.  The 2016-2017 school year will be a year of engaging, meaningful rigorous work in our PK-5 classrooms, combined with events and activities.

The highly qualified professional educators and support staff at Livingston Elementary are committed to using Research Based Instructional Strategies and providing our students with opportunities to apply newly acquired skills that will help prepare them to be College and Career ready.  Teachers will analyze data and make instructional decisions to meet the needs of all learners.  We at Livingston invite and encourage our students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize teachable moments that will foster our leaders of tomorrow.

Please know that the aforementioned cannot be achieved without effective communication, for it plays a vital role in each student’s success.  We at Livingston want, need, and value your involvement and support in your child’s education; therefore, your active participation is key to the success of your child’s education.  We encourage you to attend Open House and our Title I/PTO meetings throughout the year. 

The staff of Livingston Elementary School is ecstatic to have the opportunity to educate your child.  Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work, learn, and grow.



Dr. Patrick E. Carter, III
