Join The PTA

We are looking forward to a great year and have many fun events planned. We appreciate and need your support. Join the Country Place PTA. We have cut our fees in half through the end of August. We are currently offering memberships for $10 per person! If you have an interest in buying the school spirit t-shirt, we will have them available at the front office. We hope to see you at our first PTA meeting on Tuesday, August 22!


New Dismissal Policy

Parents, if you need to pick up your child early for an excused reason such as a dental appointment, please plan ahead. We will not release students between 2:00 p.m. and 2:25 p.m. on regular days and between 11:35 a.m. and 12:05 p.m. on early release Wednesdays.


Nurse's Note

Welcome back students and families! Our goal in the health office is to keep everyone safe and healthy during the school year. Emergency medical forms have been sent home, and we ask you to return them. If you have not received one, they are available at the office. The nurse is not able to give any over the counter medications without this form on file. This form also provides phone numbers of who to contact if your child needs to be sent home due to illness. Please make sure phone numbers are up to date as well as our emergency contacts. Thank you!


Raising A Reader Workshop

We invite all parents with children ages birth to five years told to join us for a special literacy program. Learn how to build early literacy skills in your child, and help them enter school ready to learn! This free, eight-week workshop begins on Tuesday, August 1 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and includes a book bag, books, and a certificate of completion. Please see our English literacy workshop flyer and our Español literacy workshop flyer for more information.

School Bell Changes

To serve the efficient and safe transport needs of our bus riders better, the Littleton Governing Board made slight adjustments to the bell schedules. These changes will go into effect on Tuesday, September 27. Please take a few moments to read the informational letter outlining the changes. 


Tax Credit Information

Reduce your Arizona state tax by contributing to Littleton Elementary District schools! The state of Arizona allows taxpayers to take advantage of wonderful tax credits. Please consider donating to the Littleton Elementary District schools. Simply download, print, and return a form to the district office or any one of our schools today. Our goal is to double the amount collected last year. We need your help to accomplish this! Remember, a tax credit is better than a tax deduction.


Art Education Page

We have a new district Art Education page. We will be adding new things to the page in the coming weeks, so visit often.

Keeping Our Kids Healthy

Children and adolescents should limit recreational use of a computer to less than two hours a day, according to Healthy People 2020. Daily physical activity for 60 minutes is recommended to keep our kids healthy. We encourage you to make physical activity fun and get in on the action!

Activity is essential for growing children to:

  • Improve bone health
  • Improve cardio-respiratory and muscular fitness
  • Decrease levels of body fat
  • Reduce symptoms of depression
