We share the vision that the positive achievement of our students is our top priority. All of our efforts are directed toward providing a school where everyone is given the opportunity to grow and expectations are high. We are committed to working together to create an environment where teachers can teach and where students can learn. We will continue building a school culture in which all of us promote healthy self-esteem and in which students and staff develop loyalty, respect and appreciation for each other. Recognition programs designed to acknowledge and encourage student efforts and contributions are part of the school program. Certificates, rewards, school shirts, special activities and trips, positive notes and calls are part of what is done to let students know that they are important. The mission of Livingston Middle School is to foster a nurturing environment where everyone continually achieves educational and personal growth. As a means of achieving this, staff collaborates and focuses on student needs. Additionally, two hundred eighth grade students participated in Challenge Day to address ways in which students can have a positive impact on their school and community.
