Tips and Tricks for Helping at Home
With the start of a new school year comes new learning for your child. Please monitor your child’s grades and encourage your child to complete homework. Homework has many benefits for your child such as improving memory and understanding of things learned at school, developing study skills, and teaching students that learning takes place anywhere and is nonstop. Homework can nurture positive behaviors such as time management, discipline, independence, and responsibility. Be sure to help your child to be proactive and get his/her homework done each day. Let's make this a great year!
Raising A Reader Workshop
We invite all parents with children ages birth to five years told to join us for a special literacy program. Learn how to build early literacy skills in your child, and help them enter school ready to learn! This free, eight-week workshop begins on Tuesday, August 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and includes a book bag, books, and a certificate of completion. Please see our English literacy workshop flyer and our Español literacy workshop flyer for more information.

School Bell Changes
To serve the efficient and safe transport needs of our bus riders better, the Littleton Governing Board made slight adjustments to the bell schedules. These changes will go into effect on Tuesday, September 27. Please take a few moments to read the informational letter outlining the changes.
Littleton District Choice Videos
Next year our district will allow students and families to pick their schools. Please take a moment to a couple short videos about our fantastic schools. Littleton District Choice Night is January 28, 2016, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Underdown Learning Center located at 1600 South 107th Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona 85323. We encourage all current and potential parents and students to attend and select their school and program of choice.
Tax Credit Information
Reduce your Arizona state tax by contributing to Littleton Elementary District schools! The state of Arizona allows taxpayers to take advantage of wonderful tax credits. Please consider donating to the Littleton Elementary District schools. Simply download, print, and return a tax credit form to the district office or any one of our schools today. Our goal is to double the amount collected last year. We need your help to accomplish this! Remember, a tax credit is better than a tax deduction.
Art Education Page
We have a new district Art Education page. We will be adding new things to the page in the coming weeks, so visit often.
