Early Release at 12:15pm on Sept. 15th

Don't forget that elementary will have an early release day on Wednesday, September 15th. School will be dismissed at 12:15 pm and all students need to be picked up no later than 12:35 pm. We will still have lunch that day, so don't forget to pack/order a lunch

JEANS DAY on 9/17

We don't have our class shirts, so they will just wear a uniform shirt this time or any LPS spirit shirt

We are ordering class shirts this week!

When we have a jeans day, that means:

  • Students can wear any denim bottoms in good repair (shorts, pants, skirt with modesty shorts, skort, capris). No holes or rips.
  • They can be any color.
  • Everything else stays in uniform code: shoes, socks, etc.
  • Usually this is paired with their class shirt, but as stated above, this one will just be a uniform shirt or any LPS spirit shirt.

Progress Reports 9/17

Progress reports for the first nine weeks will come home on Friday, September 17th. This will give you an update on how your child is doing before the nine weeks ends on October 22nd.

Curriculum Night is coming September 23!

Curriculum Night will be in person this year. This will be with the grade level teachers, where the teachers will share about what we teach and how. There will also be information from the specials teachers.

Save the Dates:

6:30-7:00pm = Kindergarten in the power plant

6:30-7:00pm = First Grade in the auditorium

7:15-7:45pm = Second Grade in the power plant

7:15-7:45pm = Third Grade in the auditorium

8:00-8:30pm = Fourth Grade in the auditorium

We will be entering the doors when we drop off and pickup. When your session is finished there will be specific exits as well. There will be no time to meet with the teacher individually or ask questions. If your questions are not answered during the session you can email your teacher and/or set up a conference with them.

Coming Soon! Fundraising for TeamConnor & Pink/Green Out Day

Each year, we partner with TeamConnor to raise money to support children in our area suffering with cancer. All of the money raised goes directly to TeamConnor; none of it is for LPS. Giving is all done online so you don't have to send any money to school.

The giving window will be Monday the 27th - Friday October 1st, so watch for how to give to your child's grade level as we set goals for each grade.

Then to show our support, on Friday the 1st, we have a Pink and/or Green Out day. (Pink is a traditional color for breast cancer support and green is the color for TeamConnor). Students will get to wear as much pink and/or green as possible that day to school in person or online. They can wear socks, shoes, pants, shirts, glasses, wigs, etc. The only rule for elementary is no hair coloring or face paint (this rule applies to any special dress day; we save those privileges for the older kids so they have something to look forward to.)

Keep Your Information Up to Date

Please make sure you always keep the Ascender Parent Portal up-to-date so that we have current contact information (email, phone, address) so that you get all the communication you need. Make sure that you have multiple people listed in ascender for emergency reasons.

If you can't update something in the system, just email it to our registrar Mrs. Lara-Palmer at plarapalmer@lpsfrisco.com.

Chaperone Background Checks

Each year, we need to complete a background check on parents who would like to come and serve at the school or chaperone students in any way. Do this as soon as possible to not delay you attending any field trips or being able to help out in your child's classroom. Please follow this link to complete the form for this year.

We are working closely with our PTO for how you can assist the teacher throughout the day and week. More information to come.

LPS Yearbooks

We’re seeing a lot of input from elementary parents sharing photos with yearbook! It is so encouraging and I want to remind you all that Secondary students put together the yearbook, so it’s often a struggle to include grades K-8. Our goal is to include a third of the student population in the yearbook this year, which can happen with your help!

Leave a Legacy at LPS

Leadership Prep School is sponsoring a brick campaign to provide on-going support for the purchase of equipment, supplies, and other resources that contribute to the excellence of the computer-immersion and project-based learning programs for LPS students.

By purchasing a brick, you have the opportunity to have your child's name or family name engraved on a brick that will be installed in front of the Secondary Campus building.

COST OF EACH BRICK: $75 includes 16 characters per line for up to three lines of engraving.
