The Livingstone PAC welcomes you back to the 2022-23 school year! We hope everyone has had a relatively smooth transition back to school. Although the PAC has some new faces, as always, we are here to support you and will work closely with Livingstone administration and staff to ensure our kids have a safe and enjoyable educational experience.
We wanted to start by sharing a few exciting pieces of news:
FUN LUNCH IS BACK! [If you know, you know.] For those of you who don’t know, fun lunch is a rotating lunch option that is delivered directly to the school. We are working to set up the system vendors (Sushi, Subway and Pizza, for example) and hope to have information to you next week for either a September 28 or October 5 start date. Parents pay directly on the website only for the weeks they want to participate.
The “PAC” The Pantry Drive (NEW!) And speaking of lunch, have you ever forgotten to pack a lunch? [Guilty as charged – I once sent my daughter to school with a thermos full of hot water instead of pasta.] So we bring to you, the “PAC” the pantry drive. Since we will be gathering at the school to meet our teachers and staff on September 22, we wanted to organize a pantry item drive to keep the shelves stocked for those inevitable days when children are at school without enough food. Bring oatmeal, granola bars, and anything else you think YOUR child might like. Peanut-free please!
Putting the FUN in FUNDRAISING Finally, we want you to know where all of your hard-earned donations for the various fundraisers are going, so this Fall we will be showcasing all the ways your support of the PAC is helping. Stay tuned!
Our first PAC meeting will be Wednesday, September 28th at 7 p.m. via Zoom. The agenda and zoom details will be posted on the PAC website shortly. If you have any items you would like to add to the agenda, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Looking for Volunteers:
We are looking for parent class representatives for each division to share information with parents throughout the year. The role requires compiling a parent email list for the class, forwarding a couple of emails a month to the list and organizing group gifts for holidays and end of year (if you choose).
