Kindergarten Orientation May 4


Our kindergarten orientation for 2017-18 kindergarten students is Thursday, May 4th from 6-7 PM at Sam Livingston School. Parents and students are invited. Students will enjoy the time in classrooms with kindergarten teachers and parents are invited to a presentation in the gymnasium of things to know for Kindergarten. 


School Council Purpose Workshop May 11


As the school year comes to an end, our School Council Executive is also coming to the end of their terms. Most of the executive team have completed a two year run and will not be able to run for their current positions again next year, as per our bylaws. Some members may choose to run for different positions on the executive but we are also looking for new people with fresh ideas.


Part of our mission this year has been to engage more parents and help to educate on what our School Council does. To that end, we will be hosting a School Council Purpose workshop on Thursday, May 11 from 6:30 - 8 PM. This is open to all current and prospective Sam Livingston parents who want to learn more about our School Council. To be clear, this is merely a learning opportunity and you will not be asked to volunteer or sign up for anything at this workshop. We do hope it will help to spark some interest in this important organization. School Councils do a huge amount of work towards building and maintaining a vibrant school culture and a positive school culture is one of the predictors of learning success.


We hope you can join us on May 11 to learn more. If you'd like to attend but have child care needs, please email Sarah at and we will arrange to have childcare at the school.
