Safety Attending Mustang Sporting Events

Student safety is our top priority in the Littleton Elementary School District, which is why we ask that all students who attend sporting events on any Littleton ESD site come with a parent or guardian. We will not allow students to enter any sporting events without a parent/guardian. So please show your school spirit by accompanying your children when they want to root for their team.

7 Habits of Highly Effective Families

Our second installment of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families is on February 22, from 5:30-7:00 p.m., in our library. Student Ambassadors and Dr. Cagle will facilitate this informative event. We will also be providing babysitting at no cost! Come join us on a life long journey to be more effective and happy as a family!  

Our students will be teaching about Habit 1 (Be Proactive) and Habit 2 (Begin with the End in Mind)! Your family will learn the power of taking control of your own choices and work on writing a family mission statement.

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
