Book Fair

It's that time of year again for our next book fair! The book fair will run from Thursday, February 21 through Tuesday, February 26. We love having lots of helping hands during this time. If you can help out, feel free to call us at (307) 587.4271 or use the sign-up sheet that is located in the main office here at the school. Parents who are able to volunteer will earn $5 toward any book purchase for every 30 minutes volunteered. Thank you in advance for your help!

We are also looking for volunteers who may be interested in PTK board positions next year and helping to form a fundraiser committee for the 2019–20 school year. Please reach out via PTK email if you might be interested.

Box Tops Labels

We will be having a drive to collect Box Tops Labels for Education (found on many General Mills products). Please send these in with the teacher’s name marked on the baggie or envelope. We will start the drive on Monday, February 4 and end on February 15. The winning class will receive a classroom reward. Please send all that you have; they do expire! We will do another drive in October, so keep saving! Tell your family and friends to save them too. We use the money to purchase the planners that our third, fourth, and fifth graders use. We also use the money for extra things, such as rewards for students, playground equipment, etc. Thank you for your support!

WyTopp Testing Continues

Our 5th graders will finish up the Wyoming Test of Proficiency and Progress (WY-TOPP) assessment the week of January 28. Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd will not take the WyTOPP assessment until the spring window which is April 15-May 10. We assess writing through WyTOPP only in grades 3rd and 5th at the elementary level. As parents, you can support our students and staff by doing those critical things that you consistently do at home to ensure students are prepared for high levels of learning every day. This includes making sure your children are getting plenty of rest each night. It is equally critical that students are coming to school with appropriate nutritional needs met to ensure optimal performance for the mental and physical demands of school. We are excited to see our students show off their learning!

Recycling

We wanted to send out a reminder that you can turn in any aluminum cans that you save at the recycling center. Be sure to mention that they are for Livingston School. We receive a check from them at the end of the school year. The recycling center is located at 531 15th Street – turn N on 15th from Wyoming Ave. and go to the end of the street. Outdoor bins for aluminum cans, cardboard, magazines, newspapers, phone books, plastic bottles (1 and 2), glass, and office paper are outside for easy drop off. Thanks for helping us reduce waste and earn money for our school!
