• 10/7 - 10/31 Climate Survey - please take before October 31st

    We are excited to invite you to participate in the Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI), which is part of our ongoing effort to promote a safe and healthy culture at Sandburg Elementary.  Our superintendent, Brian Ewert, recently emailed all LPS parents to introduce this survey that will collect feedback from students (grades 3-12), staff, and parents about the school environment.  During the month of October, in association with Colorado Safe Schools Month, we are inviting you to participate by sharing your opinions about the culture and climate of your child’s school.  We believe that gathering feedback about school climate will help guide our efforts to provide supportive learning environments for all students, and you play an important role in this process. If you have children at multiple schools, you can choose to complete a survey for each school or choose the school where you would most like to share your voice. If you have more than one child at the same school, you need only complete one survey.  Please click here or visit to complete your survey. Anik Egloff is our school-based survey coordinator and will be available to answer any of your questions.  Once you complete the survey for Sandburg Elementary, we invite all parents to complete & return the half-sheet of paper you will find in your child’s Friday Folder on Friday, October 7th. Returning the completed half-sheet will enter you into a weekly drawing for a $25 gift card – slips turned by Thursday 10/13, 10/20 & 10/27 will be eligible for drawings held on Friday 10/14, 10/21 & 10/28.  We are grateful for your participation and support of this exciting opportunity. Please contact us with any questions.  Sincerely,  Jenn Sheldon                                Anik Egloff  Principal                                          Survey Coordinator

  • 4th & 5th Grade - Battle of the Books

    Battle of the Books (BoB) is an exciting, collaborative team competition for 4th and 5th grade students. We will meet during lunch to chat about the books from our BoB list that we’ve read, play some games, and practice quizzing each other. We will also compete with each other in quiz show-type contests, and then our top 5 Battle of the Books players will represent Sandburg in a competition against other LPS schools (tentatively set for February 27, 2017). We will meet in the library during lunch and lunch recess on Mondays beginning October 17 (we will not meet on November 14 due to the book fair being in the library). Bringing a sack lunch on those days will be helpful to maximize our “BoB” practice time. ● We may add some additional time in January if we feel the need for more practice, but it will be during school hours. ● Please email Mrs. James with any questions. ● Students must print this form and have a parent signature with parent email and turn it in to Mrs. James in order to participate.

  • 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
