  • Viral Social Media challenge targeting youth

    Lewis-Palmer School District 38 recently became aware of a viral social media challenge targeting youth. The Momo challenge centers around a disturbing character that encourages children to perform dangerous tasks, including hurting themselves. According to sources, most children are learning about the Momo Challenge on YouTube. The challenge has been surfacing on YouTube, Facebook, and Whatsapp, which can be accessed on a phone or tablet in addition to the computer.

    In an effort to keep children safe, parents are encouraged to talk to students about these types of challenges and safe internet practices. LPSD will continue to use security measures to keep students safe while using school technology.

  • Inspiring Responsible Citizens 

    Cultivating responsible citizens takes many forms in our schools. LPSD's schools provide a wide range of activities, sports, and clubs which enhance the educational experience for all students. LPSD also provides opportunities for students to achieve both inspirational and challenging goals in a supportive environment. 

    Some LPSD schools utilize the following acronyms to provide tangible and memorable frameworks of expectations around behavior. These acronyms also provide common language for discussion and learning. 

    Opportunities that enrich academic, athletic, service, and character related endeavors abound at LPSD. Visit your school’s website for specific offerings.
