Knowledge Nourishment

We are so excited to announce our Knowledge Nourishment opportunity for all Littleton District students! Students will now have a scheduled time each day for healthy snacks. They may buy healthy “Smart Snacks” in the cafeteria, bring their own, or pick up an item from the share table. Please check out our flyer for additional information and healthy snack ideas for your student.

School Wellness

It is important that all students are here every day and on time. It is also important that appointments are scheduled on early release afternoons whenever possible. Decreased interruptions, supports us in ensuring our students receive the great learning experience they deserve the entire time they are in school.

Technology Tip

Our 1:1 laptop program provides a laptop to students in 3rd to 8th grade. With these devices, students will seek out digital information to enhance their learning. As kids spend time online, it may be a good time to discuss some basic expectations of digital citizenship: Be kind (remember, there’s someone on the other side of the screen), keep things private (keep in mind safety, passwords, and personal information), don’t over share (be mindful of what is being shared and who it is being shared with).
