LIVINGSTON, NJ — A series of special events and programs designed to ensure the safety and well-being of Livingston students—whether it’s an involvement with drugs and alcohol, bullying, school violence or other social ills—has officially begun and will continue at Livingston Public Schools throughout October.

The month began with a “Week of Respect,” as demonstrated in the following video featuring Harrison Elementary School teachers and students, who participated in a “$500 Pyramid” game show during a school-wide pep rally on Friday that set the stage for this month’s special programming.

“These special events throughout the month of October are just the beginning as we teach students, simply, to choose to be kind,” said Marilyn Joyce Lehren, manager of communications/Community Outreach for Livingston Public Schools, who created the video seen above.

During the month of October, Livingston students in all nine schools will pledge to “be a hero,” to make their mark against bullying, and to love differences.

At the middle and high schools, students will take part in a Challenge Day to break down racial and social barriers. By the month’s end, Red Ribbon’s drug-free message will cross curriculum with special literacy programs, art and music, and school counseling to bring these topics to a new level.

Throughout this school year, Livingston Public Schools will work to meet the academic needs, and social and emotional well-being of all students.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
