Q&A With Your Parent Council President, Ellie Livesay
This summer, Ellie Livesay began her role as our new Parent Council President. A Trinity mom of three, she values the connections she's made through Parent Council and believes every parent in the Trinity community has a gift to share. This school year will bring some challenges, but Ellie's determination to remain flexible and creative will keep it special for all Trinity families.
Q: Tell us about you, your family, and how you got involved with Parent Council.
A: My husband Grant and I have three kids at Trinity - Meg, second grade; Henry, third grade; and Claire, sixth grade. Grant and I appreciate the value of our own private school education, and we believe quality education during these early years fosters a love of learning - we think Trinity does just that! I co-chaired our sweet Grandparents' Day event a few years ago. This helped me realize how many fun events and programs that the Parent Council brings to our school community, and I knew I wanted to be more involved!
Q: With the particular challenges we're all facing going into this school year, how will Parent Council do things differently than in years past?
A: I truly believe that challenges create opportunities, and this year is an opportunity to be creative and flexible and see what greatness comes out of it. Some of our in-person events may look different this year, but we plan to make things as fun and special as possible for our community!
Q: What are your Top 3 reasons why parents should get involved in Parent Council?
A: 1) It's a fun way to get to know other parents! 2) The more energy you invest in our Trinity community, the more connected you are! Like anything, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it! 3) We need YOU! Many hands (and minds!) make light work! Everyone has gifts to share and we always have a place to plug you in. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: What's something most people don't know about Trinity Parent Council?
A: Every parent is a member and you are welcome at any and all meetings we hold. Meeting dates will be posted in News & Notes. We put on fun events like the Trinity Olympics, Art Show, Book Fair and so many more!
Q: What would each of your children say is their favorite thing about school?
A: Meg loves reading and checking out as many books as possible from the library. She is 100% sure she wants to be a librarian! My son Henry loves the chance to play soccer at recess and PE (shocker, right?!). Claire loves her small group in advisory, getting to know her teachers well, and time with her friends!
