YOU! Yes, YOU!!!  The PTO after-prom committee still needs several volunteers to help chaperone at after-prom. We cannot sponsor this event without the help of our LHS parents, so please don't wait for someone else to step up to lend a hand, as they are waiting for YOU.... This is a great opportunity for dad's to help out, since this is not an event occurring during the work week. Please consider asking your spouse to help out. Or find a friend and volunteer together. We are in need of 8-10 more parents. Thank you in advance for helping out. Thank you, also, to everyone who has already stepped up and volunteered.

Parents and guardians, please go to the link below to see how you can help the Littleton PTO with the annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon to be held on Monday, May 16, 2016.  Let's show the wonderful LHS teachers and staff how much we appreciate all that they do for our students. Thank you for your support!

Bucks for no bags!  If you pop by Whole Foods Southglenn for a few things and DON'T take a bag, you can still ask for your bag credit to go to the LHS greenhouse. Love your Mother.  Think Earth Day every day.

A dime for a bag. For every bag you reuse, including produce bags, the LHS greenhouse gets 10 cents. Please, don't forget to take your reusable bags to Whole Foods Southglenn for their Bag Donation Credit Program( specify money to go to LHS).  We are the recipients through June - the change adds up.  Less waste, fewer natural resources squandered, more money for us!
