Blog Announcements:

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!

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!
