  • Call to Action: Please Contact Your Legislators for Increased K-12 Funding

    Dear Littleton Public Schools Community: I want to let you know of an important opportunity to make your voice heard at the Colorado Capitol.   An ad hoc coalition of school districts from across the state has come together to launch the Kids Matter Too Coalition. This statewide coalition of parents and educators is calling on lawmakers to ensure Colorado’s growth benefits families by increasing funding for schools. Colorado school districts are coping with a teacher shortage crisis, shrinking funds for special education and inadequate mental health services. Next week, the state budget projections will be released and many expect a surplus. Lawmakers will be making decisions about what to do with this additional funding, and Kids Matter Too Coalition members from every corner of the state are calling for additional funding to benefit students. Consider: Colorado currently ranks 42nd in the nation in per pupil funding and 50th in the nation in teacher salary competitiveness. Next year, Colorado public schools will need to fill 3,000 vacant positions. This will be difficult with such low teacher salaries. Funding additional mental health services is more than just a resource to help students succeed; it’s a student safety issue, as well. Years of budget cuts have decimated the ranks of school counselors and mental health professionals. Our students and families need more mental health support in our schools. Only Oklahoma and Arizona spend less than Colorado on services for students with special needs. The federal and state government together only cover about 30% of the costs of these expensive services, which leaves individual school districts responsible to cover the remaining 70% with the dwindling funding they have.   We often hear in the news about the strength of the state’s economy, but our schools are still reeling from drastic cuts during the recession. LPS alone has been shortchanged $101 million since 2008. Our students deserve better, and now the Legislature may be in a position to return some of this funding to its public schools. I urge you to contact your legislators in the next few days to tell them how important it is to increase funding for K-12 education in Colorado. Kids Matter Too provides valuable resources to help you connect with elected officials.   The 2018 Legislative Session is moving quickly, so please stay connected to these important issues: Visit the kidsmattertoo.org website Like Kids Matter Too on Facebook Follow @Kids_MatterToo on Twitter Help us secure critical funding for the students here in LPS and across Colorado. Your voice matters! Thank you for your continued partnership and support.   Sincerely, Brian Ewert Superintendent Littleton Public Schools

  • A Message from Superintendent Ewert Regarding National Protests

    Dear Littleton Public Schools Parents/Guardians, As you may know, there is a national movement to empower student voices through potential demonstrations or walkouts. One such national event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 14, 2018. Students from across the nation have indicated they intend to demonstrate in the form of a walkout at 10 a.m. that morning to urge lawmakers to pass legislation to keep students safe from gun violence at school, at home and in the community. The national walkout will last 17-minutes, symbolizing the 17 lives lost during the February 14, 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.   It is our understanding that students in several LPS schools plan to participate in this national walkout. It is important to us that our students learn to be independent, critical thinkers who contribute to a democratic society in a positive way. We support our students’ rights to express their views and opinions, understanding that students have opinions on all sides of issues, which could result in student-led demonstrations and student-led counter demonstrations. It is also important that such advocacy always be carried out in a safe, peaceful and respectful manner that does not infringe upon the rights and safety of others.   LPS educates students preschool through grade 12 and beyond. LPS school and district leaders have been working with students to provide age-appropriate and safe ways for students’ voices to be heard with the least disruption to the school day. The following arrangements have been made in the interest of keeping all students safe during the national walkout Wednesday, March 14, 2018: Elementary schools will not be allowing students to walk out of school for the demonstration nor designating a supervised area for a student walkout. The elementary school day will progress on its normal schedule. Parents who want their elementary students to participate in the national walkout should do so off LPS property and bring their students to school after the walkout. Per our normal procedures, elementary students arriving late will need to have a parent/guardian sign them in at their school's main office. Supervised space on campus will be provided for middle school students who choose to participate in the 17-minute walkout. During this time, students must stay in the designated, supervised area. Students will not be allowed to leave campus unless they are signed out by a parent/guardian. Students will be expected to return to class immediately following the walkout. Supervised space on campus will be provided for high school students who choose to participate in the 17-minute walkout. Students are expected to return to class immediately following the walkout. LPS does not endorse any particular viewpoint or advocacy group. We do, however, respect our students’ rights to express themselves safely. District security and local law enforcement will be providing additional support. In the interest of student safety, designated walkout areas are for students and supervising staff only. It is our expectation that parents, community members and outside advocacy groups who want to express their opinions do so at the Capitol or through other community demonstrations. Thank you for partnering with us in our efforts to keep students safe. Nothing is more important.   Sincerely, Brian Ewert Superintendent

  • February - Monthly Highlights of PBIS

    February - Monthly Highlights of Positive Behavior Initiatives at Lenski B3 In January we continued our weekly B3 rewards drawings. Weekly winners received their bracelets and had a group photo taken and displayed on the TV in the entrance. Look forward to our B3 Grade Level Contest in March!   Second Step A big thank-you to all Lenski families who continue to diligently complete and return the take-home activities which reinforce social-emotional skills and allow your students to tell you what they have learned in school. In Kindergarten we learned that accidents can happen and how to show our classmates that we care. We role-played showing empathy by saying, "I am sorry, it was an accident. Are you OK?" In 1st grade we practiced identifying our own feelings and how  to calm down strong feelings such as anger by using positive self-talk. 2nd graders are talking about how to notice and understand what someone else is feeling (empathy) and how to show care and concern for each other (compassion). In 3rd grade we learned that is difficult to think clearly when you have strong feelings and how we should listen to our bodies for clues about how we feel. 4th graders are practicing how to say their problems without blame and show respect for each others' opinions and preferences. In 5th grade we are learning about the benefits of making a plan to solve complicated problems in our lives.   Random Acts of Kindness (RAK)   First grade students have been practicing random acts of kindness.   This lesson came from a book called "Kindness is Cooler, Mrs. Ruler" by Margery Cuyler.  The story is about 6 students who thought is was "cool" to be mean so their teacher made them do random acts of kindness. After a while they all loved being kind so much the entire class started doing random acts of kindness. Their goal was to get 100 random acts of kindness and encourage the one student who wouldn't do any to start being kind. Mrs.Ruler's class achieved their goal!   First grade students were challenged to complete 5 random acts of kindness at home.
