Lenski Weekly Update

October 20, 2022

From the Principal's Desk

Thank you to everyone who attended conferences!

This week, students got to meet Rex, the LPS Therapy Dog, and Officer John Gray. Students learned about Rex’s role in our school and what it means to be a working dog. Our students absolutely loved getting to pet Rex! We are honored to welcome him at Lenski.

Students also participated in our Run4Fund$ Prize Day activities! It was an absolute blast had by all!

We are currently in the lead for elementary registrations for the LPS Stride! But only by ONE registration! If you haven’t registered yet, please consider! It is an amazing event that helps support so many of our initiatives and students in LPS. Register Here

We can’t wait to see everyone out sporting their Lenski red, white, and blue!

Have a great long weekend!



From the Office:

4th Grade Music Performance:

4th grade students will be performing in a musical hoedown representing the period of CO history from about 1825-1880 on Thursday, October 27th from 5:00-5:30 p.m. Students are asked to report to classrooms by 4:50 for an on-time start to the performance. Performance will be on the western playground - the grassy area. Please bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and dress warmly! Weather is forecast to be chilly. In the event of rain, this event will be moved inside. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Gregory at agregory@lps.k12.co.us

Halloween Plans:

We are looking forward to celebrating Halloween at Lenski!

October 28th: We will host a Trunk-Or-Treat from 4pm to 5pm at school. Room parents will work with classroom teachers to decorate each trunk. We will have live music too!

October 31st: While it is a normal school day for us, our classroom teachers will engage students throughout the day with fall-related activities. At about 1:45, we will begin our school-wide parade that will begin inside our building and end by looping outside of our school. Families are invited to come and support our students by being spectators outside of the building. Please plan for the weather. When you and your kiddos are planning a costume for the year, please remember that no face paint or facsimile of weapons or inappropriate scary masks will not be allowed.


Calling all Veterans! Please join us for a Veteran’s Day breakfast on November 11 from 8:00-8:45. Sign up here if you are able to join us in person.

And/or, send photos of veterans in your family including the name, date and their place(s) of service. Also, include the name of the student(s) related to the veterans in your email. Send to rlessmann@lps.k12.co.us. We will honor our veterans in a slideshow that day.

Over the Counter Medicines

'Tis the season when sniffles, coughs, allergies, headaches and dryness are upon us. The best defense is a good offense-remind your student to bring their water bottle AND drink at least half of it in the morning.

In addition, we ask that parents join us in keeping everyone safe by following the LPS District guidelines regarding over the counter medications for elementary students.

Please DO NOT send over the counter medications to school with your child.

These may include cough drops, pain relievers or homeopathic products. Unfortunately, these items can fall into the wrong hands and other students may be allergic to certain ingredients.

Should your student need any of these products, parents may complete the LPS Medication Authorization form (available online). Both Parent and physician will need to sign the form and provide accurate dosing. All medcations must be in their original packaging and delivered to the office by the parent. (Please do not send with the student.)

We appreciate your help and thank you for helping keep all students safe. If you have any questions, please call the office. Thank you.

Halloween Costume Drive

We want all of our students to be able to participate in the fun of Halloween. We know some families may not be able to afford Halloween costumes, so we are asking for donations of school appropriate costumes this year. This way students who are unable to afford one (or who forget one) will be able to participate in the festivities. Thank you for continuing to support our students and families!

(Donations can be brought to the Front Office and dropped off with Ms. Seavall & Ms. Daugherty)

Thanksgiving Lunch

Please note the date change on the provided flyer below. We are excited to host Thanksgiving Lunch on November 17th!

From the Counselor

Thank you for a good week of conferences! We liked hearing some of the feedback you have had on our circles and groups, and that you’re starting to see some of the changes at home. We will be starting more small groups in the next two weeks, and are so impressed with the ability of your students to be vulnerable with sharing and participating together.

In our classroom circles (every other week in each class) we have been talking about the idea of collaboration, and what we bring to the table that we are good at. Then students can tangibly see what other peers are good at and (theoretically) go to a peer when they need help tying their shoes, drawing, help with math, etc. We’re glad to begin teaching some of these foundational skills for life at these early stages of development for these kiddos!
