Today is an ODD Period Day – Periods

Student Recognition & Congratulations: 

Congratulations to our Varsity Football team for their win against Kennedy High School and to the Varsity Boys Soccer for their win against Wheat Ridge on Friday night!!  GO LIONS!

The LHS cross country team ran in its first Jefferson County League Championship meet on Friday, with the boys taking fifth-place, and the girls coming in eighth.  The boys were led by the three-way pack of Bruce Barnstable, Tommy Kail, and Colin Cannon, with Tyler Fuller and Ethan Ogden also figuring into the scoring.  The girls were paced by Addi Iken, followed by Magda Van Leeuwen, Claudia Kramer, Elizabeth Rothrock, and Clemence Auzias.  Good job, Lions, and on to Regionals!

Congrats to the Heritage/Littleton Varsity Softball Team on the great games played in Fort Collins over the weekend.  Jaiden Kleiner made several great plays at shortstop. Gabby Matl went 5 for 6 at the plate.  MaryAnn Quintana hit a double and threw a key strike out in the final game. Though they didn't make it to the next round, it has been a great season.

Two LHS Ultimate teams competed at the Monarch Invitational tournament this past weekend. Ice Cream Dream Team, in their first tournament appearance, came out second in their pool of four. After 3 wins on Saturday, your Littleton GOLD team suffered a couple of tough losses and tied for third. Come out and watch the action Wednesday here against Arapahoe.

The Model UN club had a strong showing at this last Saturday's Kent Denver/Littleton High School Model UN Conference. 17 Students participated in all. 12 students participated as delegates in Security and World Health Organization Councils, and 2 students - first time Model UN participants Alie Watson and Tatianah Summers won Honorable Mention Awards for their representation of France in their Security Council. 5 Students (Claire Martin, Alexandra Martin, Lili Froelich, Jae Banfield, and Lauren Cox) directed councils as Presiding Officers.  A special thanks goes out to Ms. Prestel for judging one of the Security Councils.

Students and staff, today is the marching band regional championship. Marching bands from all over the area will be arriving in large buses at 2:15. All cars parked in the front, west parking lot or the south, cafeteria/forum parking lot will need to be moved as soon as school gets out.  If you are not leaving right after school because you are in a club or a sport, please move your car to the north parking lot by the tennis courts.  Otherwise, you will be blocked in by buses and they will not be able to move to get your car out until late that night.  Thank you for your cooperation.
