  • ELECTRONIC FLYER DELIVERY - PEACHJAR
    Lewis-Palmer School District will begin delivering school information and approved flyers from community organizations electronically with Peachjar on January 26, 2018.

    These school-approved eflyers will be emailed directly to you from LewisPalmerSchoolDistrict#38@peachjar.com.  Additionally, you will be able to view eflyers by clicking the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage (active January 26, 2018). This “green” initiative saves our schools tons of paper and reduces copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this electronic backpack removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. If we have your email address on file, then no action is required on your part.

    More information available here.

  • LPSD Receives CDE's Highest Ranking
    Lewis-Palmer School District once again received Accredited with Distinction and all LPSD schools received Performance ratings by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). These are the highest ratings available from the state.
     
    The District and School Performance Frameworks (DPF and SPFs) from the CDE are now finalized.
    You may access LPSD and D38 school frameworks here.
    The CDE provides an overview and information about these frameworks here.
     
    Additionally, three LPSD schools are John Irwin award recipients
    Prairie Winds Elementary
    Ray E. Kilmer Elementary, and 
    Lewis-Palmer High School. 

    This award is given to schools that demonstrate exceptional academic achievement over time.

More information is available in Schoolview here

    If you want more information regarding LPSD and other Colorado districts' data, the CDE provides an online resource called DISH available here.
    DISH provides district and school level trend data in a variety of visual formats (graphs and charts) so that users can more easily see patterns.

  • LPSD SCAM Alert
    Last spring, Lewis-Palmer School District #38 became aware that a company called Touchdown Sports was representing itself as a fundraising organization working with our schools. This company was NOT and is NOT associated with LPSD38 in any way. 

    We are aware that this is happening again. The company name has changed, but they continue to use the phone number 817-809-4800

    If you get calls or requests regarding supporting an LPSD school, please call the school to confirm that the organization is actually working with the school.

    Please share this information.
