Livingston Public Schools Rocks Cycle for Survival

Intervention and Enrichment Specialist Christine Cemelli, and Spanish teacher, Linda Weiss, show their Heritage Middle School pride at Cycle for Survival Credits: Livingston Public Schools

SUMMIT, NJ — Several Livingston Public School (LPS) staff members and students spent time together on Feb. 3, at Equinox gym in Summit to join the battle against rare cancers. These dedicated spinners participated in Cycle for Survival, a high-energy indoor team cycling event founded by the late Jennifer Goodman Linn, a former Livingston resident, and her husband, Dave, to raise money to fund life-saving rare cancer research.

LPS teams included The Mighty Mites, led by Superintendent of Schools Chris Steffner; Lancers vs. Cancer, led by Danielle Rosenzweig, Livingston High School assistant principal; and the Cycling Eagles of Heritage Middle School, led by HMS principal secretary Christina Woytas. Together, these LPS teams raised more than $9,000 toward the cause.

Livingston Board of Education President Pam Chirls rode as part of the 6AM Spinners team, led by LHS secretary Martha Ackermann. The 6AM Spinners, which also included LPS parents and staff, raised more than $7,000.

There is a glaring hole in recent Game of Thrones seasons that needs to be addressed: the ability of Valyrian steel to destroy White Walkers has not been acknowledged since before Jon Snow’s death.

In fact, it hasn’t been mentioned since the Season Five finale when Jon Snow reveals this discovery to Sam Tarly. Jon has cared about little more than the war between the living and ...
