One of the many amazing things we can celebrate in Littleton is our families’ ability to choose the school focus that students are most interested in. At Littleton STEM Academy, we get the opportunity to explore the world through computer science. Throughout the school year, we discuss future careers in computer science and “time travel” to the future and make a plan! We hope that by teaching students to plan for the future they can begin to set goals and strive to achieve them so they can choose a career they love!
On October 22, 2018, the Big Smiles Dental Program will be at Littleton STEM Academy. The Big Smiles dream began back in 1997. We were dentists and friends and wanted to create a dental practice for those who could not easily get to a dental office. As both mothers and dentists, we knew how difficult it was to take our own children to the dentist while juggling busy schedules. Working from our kitchen tables, we created a dental safety net for children. The dream turned into a startling reality. At our very first in-school visit, it was quickly apparent that most of the children we served had never seen a dentist! About half the children treated had significant dental decay, almost all of which was preventable. The school staff knew we were needed. A child in pain cannot learn.

Littleton Elementary School District Recognizes September As Attendance Awareness Month
The Littleton Elementary School District is participating in Attendance Works’ 6th annual attendance awareness month in September to encourage attendance and reduce chronic absence.
Chronic absence is when a student misses more than ten percent of the school year. In addition, according to Attendance Works’, when a student misses two to four days in the first month of school they are already on the road to being chronically absent for the year.
The mission of Attendance Works is to advance student success and reduce equity gaps by reducing chronic absence and our schools
In a proclamation signed by the governing board president, the district will “...commit to focusing on reducing chronic absenteeism to give all children an equitable opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.”
