Kristie StarkovichThe Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District welcomes Kristie Starkovich as the new principal for the satellite elementary campus. Kelly Bowers, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools, said “We are so pleased to have Ms. Starkovich join our leadership team. Her experience, enthusiasm and collaborative leadership style make her a perfect fit for our educational community.

 

Kristie Starkovich joins the administrative team with over 20 years of experience as an elementary school educator. She has served as a classroom teacher, intervention teacher, vice principal, and principal, primarily with Calaveras Unified School District (CUSD) and Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD).


Ms. Starkovich is passionate about education and is eager to explore innovative and effective strategies to enhance student learning. Starkovich believes it takes a team to cultivate a climate in which students thrive and become lifelong learners. She looks forward to working with the entire school community, students, staff and families.


Ms. Starkovich grew up in Livermore. She attended Sunset Elementary School, Mendenhall Middle School, and graduated from Livermore High School. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies with Concentration in Foreign Language from California State University East Bay (formerly Hayward), and a Master of Arts degree from National University.


Ms. Starkovich demonstrates the power of persistence and perseverance which have allowed her to learn, grow, and succeed professionally and personally. She values spending time with her husband Aaron, stepdaughter Nicole, and stepson Darren. Nicole will be a junior at Livermore High School in the fall. Walking her big yellow Labrador retriever, riding bikes, and placing her toes in the sand are her joys in life. Last year, she completed her first triathlon and is looking forward to training for many more.


Principal Starkovich is ready to get to know her new school. “I am honored to join the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District and return to the community I call home,” she said.

The Livermore Police Department recently responded to two vehicle vs. bicycle collisions near school zones over the past week. If your child rides their bicycle to school, we would like to remind parents to discuss bicycle safety and rules of the road with their children.


Bicyclists ARE NOT pedestrians and are required to obey all traffic laws and to wear a helmet if under the age of 18.


Motorists should also keep in mind that while traveling in school zones, there are likely young, inexperienced bicyclists and pedestrians in the area. Please use extra caution while exiting driveways or making turning movements in areas around schools.


Remember that the speed limit in school zones is 25 MPH when children are present (regardless of the posted speed limit). Please read these bicycle safety tips and share them with your family and friends.

Reading for the Future
Dear Livermore Community,

Long before I earned my Bachelor’s degree in English from UC Berkeley, I knew the power of reading. A good book was like a magic carpet when I was younger, giving me the ability to explore new worlds, meet new people, and dream new possibilities. My library card was a ticket each Saturday to a new stack of adventures. I can remember being delightfully lost in a good book, and even feeling sad when I closed the cover on the last chapter of a favorite character’s story. Today, I continue to be an avid reader. Reading is the key to understanding new perspectives. It is the essential element of success in learning.  


Reading others’ words empowered me to write my own. Even as a second grader, using Dr. Seuss’s book as an impetus to plan my future, I learned that a book could provide a framework for my dreams. And, remembering my Dad’s words, “A goal is a dream with a deadline,” my reading led me to set goals and prepare for my future.

As we celebrate reading this month, let’s all pick up a good book. And, even more important, let’s all read a book with a child. I had a great time reading with students at Altamont and Croce Elementary School sites on Thursday. Thank you for inviting me along with your other guest readers! 

Warmly,

 

Kelly Bowers, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
