We are pleased to announce that the Littleton Public Schools Foundation recently received five grants that will benefit community members, students, and staff. 

The City of Littleton provided three grants totaling over $223,300 to the LPS Foundation from Stadium District Funding related to the purchase of the Denver Broncos Football Club. The money will fund summer school and camps at the EPIC campus, a chess club at Littleton High School, and activities at the East Community Center, including afterschool programs, outdoor learning, child care, a community garden, mental health services, and more. 

In addition, preschool students at The Village Early Childhood Center are the beneficiaries of a $10,000 grant from the National Wildlife Federation’s ECHO initiative. The grant is for landscape design, which will bring a sensory garden and outdoor classroom to their school.  The initiative also provides professional development for ECE staff on activating their outdoor spaces and engaging children in nature learning. 

The final $110,000 grant from an anonymous donor went toward purchasing a second Anatomage virtual dissection table for the EPIC campus. The state-of-the-art technology provides our Health Sciences Pathway students with a broader understanding of their subject matter and gives them a competitive edge as they seek advanced education. 

We are extremely fortunate to have community partners who value and prioritize student learning and growth. We’ll share stories and pictures about how the grants serve our youth in future communications.
