Thank You for All the Love!

Thank you so much for all the love we received during teacher appreciation week! I think it makes us miss you all even more and really hit home why we love our LPS family so much!

Day of Play - Friday, May 15th

Day of PLAY just got more interesting! We decided we really want you to get excited about the PLAY part of this day and we want to SEE it! We would love to see a video or picture of you and your family playing the game ideas that were sent in below or we would love to see your family just being creative in your own playful way. We want this day to be about finding ways to get active and have fun!


If you post a photo or video to the LPS Facebook page of your family playing one of the games below or just having fun and being creative with your active play together on Friday, May 15th your name will be put into a drawing for a prize. If you don’t like to post things, you can simply email your photos/videos to Mr. Curtis or Mrs. Floyd


In addition, many people are looking for ways to give back to the community in this difficult time, so if you would like to coordinate your day of play into a day of giving too, the information needed is below.


In addition to prizes, you'll also receive service hours for participating! You'll get one (1) hour just for registering on Extra-Life.org, and one (1) hour for every 10 donors you recruit, and one (1) additional hour for every $10 you raise.


Leadership Prep School is partnering with the Children’s Miracle Network Foundation by participating in their “Extra Life” program. Families can share the news about its good works and help raise money for our local Children’s Hospital by creating an online fundraising platform and asking family and friends to make a donation and/or sponsor you during our Day of Play. The primary goal is to get the word out about their amazing organization; the secondary goal would be to raise some money to help them continue serving sick children.


Register to receive your fundraising page using the team link below for your grade level! (Note: it defaults to a goal of $100, but you are next expected to hit that target)

Leo will show you how to register here...

Ascender - Parent Portal

A letter explaining how to log in to our new parent portal called ASCENDER was mailed out in the 4th nine weeks progress reports. In this system, you can check the data you have on file with LPS including addresses, vaccinations, etc.; and where you can check on attendance and grades (grades are posted at the nine weeks in this program, you can see current grades in ECHO.


If you have already created a parent portal account with us, then you should just have to use the new link but your username and password will be the same.


If you have never created a parent portal account with us, then please go to the link and create an account. Then you will use the portal ID from the letter to link your student to that account. Note: each student has a unique portal ID in their letter.


New ASCENDER link: https://txeis21.esc11.net:8443/ParentPortal/login?distid=061804 (this can also be found on the Parent page of the LPS website any time)
