Visitors from Canada

The Toronto Public Schools' School Board and teachers came to visit Littleton Public Schools in early April to see examples of exemplary technology use in education. The group stopped by AHS for presentations from our 9th graders on the various ways we use technology to enhance our learning.  We created a presentation fair. The kids broke up into groups around the room with each group selecting one project or idea they wanted to showcase to the touring group.  Accolades were bestowed upon the kids numerous times from the group attending.  Way to rise to the challenge Warriors!

Spirit of Littleton Dinner

On Saturday night, Littleton Public Schools held its annual Spirit of Littleton Dinner which benefits the LPS School Foundation.  Our kids have participated every year showcasing their tremendous work using technology to demonstrate their learning and understanding.

This year was no exception that our kids were one of the highlights of the night. One attendee after another complimented our presenters on their articulation, communication, personality and understanding of what they were presenting.  Our kids rocked as always. I am always so impressed by our kids' professionalism.  Way to go Warriors. We are so proud of you!
