Discover Newton Pledge Drive Update

Thank You Newton Families!  Our October PTO Pledge Drive Push was an awesome success! With your help, we’ve raised $26.302.00.  Our overall participation was 33.5%, and sixth grade families had the highest participation rate among all classes.  Every family who donated through October 31st was entered into our grand prize drawing.  We are excited to announce that the family of 7th grader Hanna Floyd won our Family Nights Fun Package, which includes four tickets to a Colorado Avalanche Game, four Tickets to a Spring 2016 Rockies Game and a $50 gift card to Regal Cinemas.

As a reminder, money raised from the PTO Pledge Drive will support interior enhancements within the school, including painting of our student lockers.  PTO also funds important enrichment programs like Reading Counts, the very popular Fall Dance, technology upgrades and teacher appreciation, supplies and grants.

A special thank you to our grand prize package donors: Jane and Steve Buckley, Beth and John Kirke, Kris and Dave LaValley.  Also a big thanks to our PTO pledge drive committee: Kris LaValley, Ashley Festoso, Beth Kirke, Sian Miletich, Lori Wennerstrom, Robyn Zagoren, and all the volunteers and Newton staff who supported our October push efforts.  An additional special shout out to Margot LaBree our PTO newsletter editor and Julie Corbett, our master of graphic design.

While our October effort has ended, you can still make a donation to the Discover Newton Pledge Drive.  Go to the Newton Middle School website and click on the link to the Pledge Drive.

Thank you again for your tremendous response and generosity!

Increase in LPS Meal Prices

It is our goal to keep meal prices affordable to families and we are proud that we are able to keep our meal prices lower than many other school districts. Due to state and federal mandates through the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 and increased food costs, beginning in July our meal prices will take a slight increase. Prices for the 2015-2016 school year are as follows:

  • Lunch Prices* 
  • Elementary: $2.70
  • Middle: $2.90
  • High: $3.00
  • Adult: $3.75

*All students who qualify for reduced meal benefits will receive breakfast at no charge. Additionally, PK-5th grade students who qualify for reduced meal benefits also receive lunch at no charge. Free and Reduced Price Meal Benefits can help ensure children have access to healthy, nutritious meals during the school day. These benefits are available to any families that meet the income and household size guidelines for the program. Please encourage families to visit www.lpsnutrition.com or call 300.347.3360 for additional information.

LPS Bond Update

Thanks to the generous support of the Littleton Public Schools’ community, bond election 3B passed by a margin of 60 percent last November. Measure 3B allows LPS to raise $80 million in funds for school repairs without increasing the current tax rate. Much needed repairs are slated for every school and district facility. Visit the LPS 2013 Bond website to learn more. Thank you for your continued support of our schools!
