Heroes

Hi folks, Jon Wennstrom here! Anyone who has been in my office, knows that I am a BIG Superman fan. The Superman decor makes the office a fun place for students and has even sparked a lot of positive conversations with parents who are fans as well. As much as I like superheroes, I prefer real heroes to look up to. Some of my real life heroes include Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.  This month, we will be celebrating the life and message of one of those heroes. Please take a moment to watch the video clip of Dr. King with your family and talk about how each of us can make a positive difference in the world if we have a dream and are willing to work to make it a reality!

"I have a dream" speech

MEET THE LPS STAFF
Steve Archibald - Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Programs & District Services

This is my 27th year with Livonia Public Schools.  I have worked at Frost, Churchill, Stevenson, and Central Office in a number of capacities including teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal, and Central Office administrator.  I met my wife when we were both teachers at Churchill.  We have been married for 23 years and have two beautiful daughters who are both currently in college.

A goal for this year is to revise the practices used at the secondary level related to student suspension.  The intent is to identify alternatives to suspension that effectively address undesirable conduct, promote desirable behavior, and reduce the amount of time students are out of class due to suspension.

Five words to describe LPS: pride, excellence, community, caring, welcoming

Did you know that our District Art Competition called "Reflections" was held this week? Several Rosedale students made entries into the competition including Harsha, a first grade student, who won an award for merit in photography and will be moving onto the state level. Great things are happening at Rosedale! 
Congratulations Harsha!
