Attention Students and Parents

The School year is ending soon. Do you have enough money in your lunch account to last until the end of the year? Do you have a negative balance that needs to be paid?

Now is the time to watch lunch account balances and pay off any past due amounts. AS OF MAY 4, 2015, students will not be permitted to charge lunches over the amount in their accounts.  Unsure of your balance?  Ask one of the Kitchen Staff or check your account at MySchoolBucks.com.  As always, the kitchen will accept cash and funds in each student's MySchoolBucks account as payment for meals and snacks.

It has been our pleasure to serve you.  Have a great rest of the year!

48th Annual Children's Writing Contest Winners

 

Hopkins has yet another reason to be proud of its students. Four of our students won awards at the Annual Children's Writing Contest. This contest, sponsored by The Friends of the Littleton Library and Museum, is put on to promote and recognize creative writing in children.

Students were judged based on originality, quality of expression, and skill in handling specific forms of writing. There were four different divisions: grades 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8; and two different categories: short story and poetry. We are all so proud of these amazing writers!

Congratulations to:

  • Samantha Luft -- Honorable Mention for her story, "Big, Bigger, Biggest"
  • Courtney Urbanek -- 2nd Place for her poem, "Footprints"
  • Sofia Millner Calvo -- 4th Place for her story, "The Dove"
  • Gabby Roche -- 1st Place for her story, "Nibbles, The Cat”
Congratulations Hopkins Artists
 
Congratulations to Hopkins Elementary student Gabby Roche, whose mixed media butterfly piece using colored chalk and oil pastel was selected by Beth Best and Mary McGlone of the Littleton Foundation as the perfect gift to Brian Vogt in appreciation of his work as the emcee at the LPS Spirit Celebration last Saturday night.  Gabby's art took center stage at this high profile gala as it was presented to Mr. Vogt for his generous work in support of Littleton Public Schools and this highly successful annual fund raiser.  Mr. Vogt, who is an artist himself, is the CEO of Denver Botanic Gardens and a Heritage High School Alum.  
 
Thanks to our art teacher Clare Kothlow for her support of Gabby and all of our Hopkins artists.  Beyond using Gabby's art as this special gift, the Littleton Foundation is inquiring about the possibility of having professional photoes taken of several Hopkins artists' work in order to utilize them as LPS Foundation notecards.  Once more, congratulations Hopkins Artists!   We are proud of you!
New Math Materials Recommended for 2015-2016
The Littleton Public Schools district committee for the review and recommendation of mathematics materials has completed their review and selected materials to recommend to the Board of Education for elementary mathematics.  Bridges with Number Corner from the Math Learning Center will be recommended for kindergarten through fifth grades.  These resources provide the rigor and relevance we have come to expect for students in Littleton Public Schools.  Materials will be on display in the foyer of the Boardroom at the Education Services Center (5776 S. Crocker St. Littleton) from March 30th through April 13th.  A community open house will be held on April 1st from 4 to 6:00 pm during which the math specialist Ann Summers will be available to answer questions.  The recommendations will go to the Board for discussion on April 9th.
Dr. Ellen Shamas-Brandt Publishes Article

Congratulations to Dr. Ellen Shamas-Brandt on the recent publication of the scholarly article she co-wrote  in Early  Education and Development.   The article, entitled Educational Gymnastics: The Effectiveness of Montessori Practical Life Activities in Developing Fine Motor Skills in Kindergartners , investigates the link between fine motor development in kindergarten students and later cognitive skills. It suggests  that there are benefits to a balanced approach to early childhood education that maintains the importance of fine and motor development in conjunction with cognitive skills, as is evidenced in the Montessori approach.  Ellen received her doctorate in Educational Leadership and Innovation from the University of Colorado Denver  in 2012.  We are proud of you!
