  • LPS moves to i-Ready Assessment in reading and mathematics for elementary students

    This fall, all students in grades Kindergarten through fifth will take the i-Ready diagnostic assessment in reading and mathematics. i-Ready is an online program that will help assess each student’s individual needs and monitor their progress throughout the school year. The assessment provider, Curriculum Associates, follows the highest level of student data privacy standards and are signators of the Student Data Privacy Pledge. The i-Ready assessments are closely aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards and provide teachers detailed information in the various domains of literacy and numeracy. The i-Ready results will become another piece of data that is reviewed along with classroom work, teacher observations and other achievement information in order to make the best instructional decisions possible for each student. Littleton Public Schools teachers and administrators are excited for this new level of information that the i-Ready assessments will provide. More information about i-Ready

  • Sprinting for the Stars - A Hug Success!

    Hello Parents: On behalf of the staff at Lenski, I would like to thank you for your overwhelming support extended through the Lenski Sprinting for the Stars Fund Run.  I am excited to announce that the Lenski students raised $115,000 through their hard work  contacting family and friends and getting out in their neighborhoods to raise money!  They far surpassed the $80K fundraising goal with over 80% of the Lenski students obtaining pledges for their run. ONE HUNDRED percent of these dollars go directly to Lenski!  Look for some playground improvements along with the majority of funds raised going directly to the  PTO's ongoing support of Lenski's staffing budget.  This support supplements our district-apportioned funding and improves Lenski's ability to provide specialist teachers to supplement the classroom experience with differentiated, small-group learning for ALL Lenski students. Through all of our efforts, Lenski is able to provide a learning experience that far exceeds what the district funds. For their efforts, students will be awarded prizes starting on Monday, October 24th. You will be informed via email this week which prizes your student may have earned. Again, thank you so much for your support.  We have such a fantastic community for which we are forever grateful! Sincerely, Barbara DeSpain, Principal
