Livermore Elementary School

The Little School on the Prairie

About Us

History

In 1871, the Livermore School District #9 was established to serve 25 families in the Livermore Valley. A small country schoolhouse was built in 1884 and used until the present day schoolhouse was built in 1953. In 1961, the Livermore School was consolidated with the Poudre School District.

Featuring a multi-grade learning environment, Livermore has three certified teachers with classrooms divided as K–1, 2–3, 4–5. The intimate atmosphere allows staff members to know every student and encourages a high level of instruction and learning opportunities.

Academics and Activities

Livermore offers a challenging math program, and learning opportunities focusing on literacy instruction. Staff excel at differentiating curriculum to meet individual students’ needs. This includes a rigorous literature-based reading series and integration of reading and writing. Livermore Elementary believes in educating the “whole child” by providing rich art, music and P.E. experiences. The fully networked computer lab and media center complement all instructional areas.

Our multi-age classrooms support differentiated instruction and deliver a standards-based curriculum with 21st century technology. The school offers an array of enrichment opportunities for all students. Enrichment activities include the Poudre River Ecology Program (PREP), Odyssey of the Mind, ECO Week, and student council. Gifted students are identified and offered appropriate extended learning opportunities.

Opportunities for parents
Parents are an integral part of our success. Our highly supportive PTO meets monthly and hosts the annual Livermore Pie Auction, a long standing year tradition. PTO-generated funds provide students with field trips, library books, classroom instructional needs, and playground equipment. Parents volunteer in classrooms, sponsor book fairs, and enriching activities.
