Google Apps for Education (GAFE)
Lewis-Palmer School District (LPSD) is rolling out Google Apps for Education (GAFE) - another way in which we help LPSD students develop necessary skills for the future. Google Apps is a free suite of communication and collaboration tools which includes Google Classroom, Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Drive, Sheets, Slides, and Sites—for learning anywhere, anytime, on any device.
More information is available under the Educational Technology page and at https://www.google.com/edu/products/productivity-tools/.
LPSD did not experience a data breach.
More information available here.
Here is Applied Trust's official statement related to the investigation. Their full report of LPSD's data and system security practices will be forthcoming upon completion of the audit. LPSD will use Applied Trust's recommendations from their final report to further strengthen systems.

August 26 Assessment Day
On Friday, August 26, we will be using our Teacher PLC day as an Elementary Assessment Day. We will be assessing as many students in grades first through sixth (kindergarteners will NOT attend) as possible on this day. This will allow us to cut down on the instructional impact of beginning of the year assessing. The results of these assessments will help us to determine your child’s academic levels for the beginning of the year. We will also determine further reading needs for your child and plan literacy instruction and interventions accordingly.
There will not be regular school on this day. Students will report to school at assigned times only.
There will be no bus transportation and breakfast/lunch will not be provided.
We will be dividing the entire student body into three sections:
Last names between A-F come from 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Last names between G -N come from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Last names between O-Z come from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
YMCA will be running their program on August 26 if you need daycare. Please consult their information on the district website.
Students will enter through the front doors with their parents to check-in at their appropriate time.
All students will be picked up on the west side like we do for normal dismissal.
Please make sure to mark your child’s assessing time on the calendar and be sure your student is here on time as well as picked up on time. Although attendance is not mandatory, we strongly encourage your students’ participation. If your child cannot attend during their scheduled time, they may come at any of the other times.

BCES YMCA Child Care Information
Before & After School Care
Children absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe time well spent in a fun, safe and supportive environment before and after school is a primary building block for quality of life and future success of children. Children feel connected at the Y where they can make friends and learn how to be their best with the Y’s values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We promote positive self-esteem, life skills, teamwork, leadership, creativity, and educational support.
Challenger Learning Center Camp Volunteers Needed
The Challenger Learning Center of Colorado invites student volunteers make our summer camp programs a success! Applicants must be entering 9th grade or higher in the 2016-2017 school year. Our volunteers will assist the summer camp teachers and Challenger staff. Volunteers work with our campers to get them excited and engaged in STEM-related activities throughout the week! Our volunteers help set up and prepare activity materials and help clean up at the end of the day.
If you are excited about STEM and working with kids, then this is a great volunteer opportunity!
