  • "PoPs" on the Playground

    Twain wants all kids to feel like they have connections to other students and adults while they are at school, so we have revived the "PoPs" (parents on the playground) program for  the second half of the year.   We are looking for parents, grandpas, uncles, guardians, etc.  to spend time with students during their recess. This is a great thing to do if you're looking for a way to get outside during your lunch break! We encourage you to join in a game, find that kid who is playing alone and connect them with other students, or ref a game while you are out on the playground with Twain students. Sign up for one or multiple times slots and days to join Twain students on the playground! Sign up link And, of course, make sure to stop by the office with your drivers license before heading out to the playground to sign in and get a badge!

  • LPS Long Range Planning Committee seeks Community Feedback on Boundary Study

    The LPS Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) has been meeting since the fall of 2018 to study school boundaries to better balance enrollment, provide boundaries for the new elementary schools to be built for the Ames neighborhood and the combined Highland and Franklin neighborhoods, and to address the growing transportation challenges resulting from increased traffic in the south metro area -- all if an effort to improve boundaries to best serve students and provide them with the best educational experience possible. During more than 20 hours of meetings, the LRPC has considered 14 different elementary school boundary scenarios, six different middle school boundary scenarios, and four different high school boundary scenarios. As part of this process, the LRPC: Looked for logic and efficiency as new boundaries were considered Strived to keep neighborhoods together, recognizing that waterways and other obstacles make transportation more difficult Found boundary solutions for the new neighborhood school on the Ames campus  Found boundary solutions for the new neighborhood school on the current Franklin campus Strived to avoid wherever possible having to cross major north/south arterial roads, busing students past one school to attend another, and creating a smaller-than-optimal schools Considered current feeder patterns (elementary to middle to high) Considered school size and capacity, with and without out-of-district students Considered socio-economic balance Looked toward the future: what building replacements are happening with the current bond, and what buildings might be replaced in future bonds? How will boundaries be impacted? Four stakeholder open houses are scheduled in January and February 2020, where attendees can drop in any time during a two-hour open house to learn about each scenario, ask questions of LRPC members, give feedback and take an exit survey, which provides another opportunity for feedback: Tuesday, January 28, 2020 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Goddard Middle School Monday, February 3, 2020 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Powell Middle School Wednesday, February 12, 2020 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Newton Middle School Thursday, February 20, 2020 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.at Euclid Middle School All four open houses will provide attendees with the same opportunities to interact with members of the Long Range Planning Committee, learn about the boundary options, ask questions, and provide feedback. Choose a date, time, and location that works best for you!   What’s next? The LRPC will provide an update to the Board of Education later this spring. The Board is tentatively scheduled to make decisions about the boundaries by the fall of 2020, and approved new boundaries would likely take effect in the fall of 2021.  Additional information about the Districtwide Boundary Study is available on the LPS district website at Boundary Study.

  • The LPS Board of Education is Hosting Four Community Conversation Events

    The Littleton Public Schools Board of Education is hosting four community conversation events regarding culture and climate; diversity; safety and security; and mental health. Those in attendance will have an opportunity to learn what LPS currently does in these areas, ask questions of the Board, engage in dialogue, and ultimately provide feedback to the Board.  Parents, employees, community members, and middle and high school students are invited to attend. Community conversations are scheduled as follows: Tuesday, January 21, 2020 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Bemis Library 6014 S. Datura St. Littleton, CO 80120 Wednesday, January 22, 2020 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Columbine Valley Town Hall 2 Middlefield Rd.

Other ways include surveys of parents, staff, students, and community members; roundtable events with parent groups; student focus groups; and student workshops.  Dr. Anna Mueller, a sociologist from the University of Indiana, is gathering feedback as she conducts environmental research in our community. She will spend the next year in Littleton and Centennial examining how social environments facilitate mental health and help-seeking among youth.
