Other Special Events:

Are you looking for that perfect gift for someone over the holidays? Well, search no more; LHS has the gift you are looking for!  Come to the main lobby TODAY - Friday this week with your extra change and cash and buy a great looking gift from The Musana Community Center and School--our school in Uganda, Africa we support.  There are some Bronco scarves, some wonderful shoulder bags, earrings, bracelets and you can even buy a CHICKEN--only 2 bucks!  So, check out the booth in the booth in the front lobby starting TODAY and going through Friday.

Attention students:  Ms. Mann's advisement has a challenge for you: Let's recycle more than we throw away.  The cafeteria is a great place to start.  By now you've noticed the big blue recycling bins along side the trash cans in the cafeteria.  There are posters on these bins so you know what goes into the trash and the items that can be recycled.  For example, leftover food should go into the trash, but did you know you can recycle your plastic containers, paper bags and milk cartons?  We appreciate your help!

Club Announcements:

FBLA members we have a very important meeting this Thursday, November 20th at 2:20 pm in room 124.  Urgent competition information will be shared and this will be your last opportunity to sign up. If you cannot attend please contact Mrs. Martin or an officer.  See you there!

DECA members will have a short meeting on Thursday in room 125 at 2:20.

Please bring in your "gently" used coats and jackets for Student Council's program to get coats to those less fortunate to support Coats for Colorado.  There are bins in the main lobby, main office, counseling office, library and business office.  The program goes until Friday, November 21st.

Hello Littleton High School families! LHS PTO will be organizing the After-Prom Bake Sale fundraiser in conjunction with Lions Follies Variety Show, coming up December 5th and 6th. With the holidays fast approaching, we will have a variety of delicious treats available for purchase. In addition to cookies, brownies and bars to enjoy during Lions Follies intermission, this year we will have goodies on hand to purchase for holiday gift giving. Please remember to bring extra spending money to help support After-Prom, and get some of your holiday gifts purchased! These yummy treats are perfect hostess gifts, office gifts and stocking stuffers and will be available both nights of Lions Follies. We will also provide coffee, hot cider and water.  This is a fun evening to help with the bake sale, too, so please see the link below to volunteer. If you have a yummy recipe to share with other Littleton Families, please check out the link and sign up to bring that special treat!
