  • You're Invited: 5th Grade Parent Night 2019

    Littleton Public Schools invites parents to attend its annual 5th Grade Parent Night! Heritage High School Theater 1401 W. Geddes Ave., Littleton CO 80120 January 22, 2019 – 7 p.m. All parents of current 5th graders who are interested in learning more about the unique opportunities available in LPS middle schools are encouraged to attend. Littleton Public Schools has four middle schools: Euclid, Goddard, Newton and Powell. While each has its own personality, all four offer the guaranteed, rigorous LPS middle school curriculum. Balanced between STEM and Liberal Arts, students are exposed to a wide variety of academic disciplines. A top-rated education is important, but a sense of community and belonging is paramount. Students and families in LPS support one another in and out of the classroom, creating a place that everyone can call home. The evening will focus on a conversation about what to expect from the LPS middle school experience. Principals Cindy Corlett (Euclid Middle School), Bryan Breuer (Goddard Middle School), James O’Tremba (Newton Middle School), Steve Wolf (Powell Middle School) and Ashley Broer (Options Middle School and Phoenix 6-8) will all be present, along with Director of Secondary Education Clay Abla. Topics include LPS common middle school curriculum, transition activities and the importance of communications. Parents will learn about the strong academic programs offered, including STEM, and the variety of electives, athletics and performing arts available. The evening will also address questions specific to out-of-district families and parents of students who need special services. “Accredited with Distinction” for 8 years in a row by the Colorado Department of Education, Littleton Public Schools is among the Denver Metro Area’s highest rated districts. So whether you live in the district or are coming to LPS from another district, you can be certain that you are getting the very best. This is a parent-only event. Students will have an opportunity to visit middle schools in the spring. For more information, call 303.347.3334 or visit the Middle & High School Choices page on the district website. We look forward to seeing you there! 5th Grade Parent Night 2019 - Flyer

  • Parent Teacher Conferences

    Sign up now for parent teacher conferences! https://ptcfast.com/schools/Lois_Lenski_Elementary If you cannot find a time slot that works for you please contact your child's teacher directly to make arrangements.  Siblings: The parent picks their one conference, registers and gets an email link to pick an appointment for the conference they clicked on. After they pick their first appointment time, they are asked if they have a) another child to sign up for that conference, or b) another conference to sign up for the same child, and they can make those appointments without re-registering. Alternatively, you can go with Class Code instead of School Web Page option and provide parents with letters. In this case the parent, while only needing to register once, would be asked for a class code for subsequent appointments after the first one.

  • Kindergarten Offerings and Details for 19-20

    Hello Parents:     Lenski will again offer an extended day kindergarten program in the 2019/20 school year.  Kindergarten Extended Day, or KED, is a tuition based program designed to give kindergartners a full day of learning 5 days a week. The full day KED program distributes academic content and social development activities throughout the day with the same licensed classroom teacher. KED is a tuition based program with a cost of $385 per month, requiring a year long commitment.     In addition to KED, Lenski will continue to provide 5 day AM Kindergarten with NO K+ at no charge and our 5 day AM Kindergarten with K+ (2, 3 or 4 days per week). K+ is a tuition based program designed to give kindergarten students the state required half day of learning 5 days a week with a licensed teacher and a half day of learning 2, 3 or 4 days a week with a highly qualified paraprofessional in the K+ classroom. More information about our K+ program can be found on the Lenski website.     Children who will be five years old by October 1, 2019 are eligible for kindergarten in the fall. Please plan ahead for upcoming registration dates on January 28th and January 29th and help us by letting those families in your neighborhood know about Kindergarten Registration.   If you are an existing family and have an incoming Kindergarten student you may register your student at Lenski early beginning January 15th. You must first pre-register your student through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account by selecting the link "New Student Pre Registration" on the left side of the home page. After completing the pre-registration, print the document and bring that as well as student's birth certificate, immunization record, proof of residency (i.e. current Xcel bill) and parent identification to Lenski beginning January 15th.    If your student is currently enrolled in an LPS preschool and Lenski is your homeschool you do not need to pre-register but we ask that you bring the necessary documentation as listed above to Lenski to complete additional registration materials.   For families outside of the Lenski attendance area please call the school office at 303-347-4575 and schedule a one-on-one tour with me so that you can see students engaged in learning.   As always, thanks for your support of Lenski.  Barbara DeSpain, Principal
