OPEN HOUSE -  Tuesday, August 8th, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
This will be an opportunity for Goddard Students to have a “Sneek-A-Peek” at the school, put school supplies in their locker, pay fees, sign up for PTO Volunteer opportunities and get out those last-minute, First Day of School Jitters.  We apologize but if you cannot make this day & time, your student will have the first day of school to set up their locker and learn their schedule. Teachers will not be available.

VIKING WAY - First Day of School.  6th Graders come for the first 2 hours of the day and have the building to themselves. They will get a chance to learn how to work their locker combination, set up their locker, get the lay of the land and learn the "Viking Way" from our W.E.B. Leaders. This is our new student orientation program that pairs an 8th-grade W.E.B Leader with our new students.  They play fun games and have activities that take place throughout the school and have a picnic lunch. This time is designed to orient and begin the process of meeting new friends. This gives the 6th graders a chance to have the school all to themselves for the first part of the day.

INFINITE CAMPUS- It is mandatory for every household to have a Parent Portal Account. Please visit https://campus.lps.k12.co.us/campus/portal/littleton.jsp  All families must have a Parent Portal Account. The reasons for having an account are:

  • Registration will all be done On-line
