School Supply Lists

Here is the link to the list of items that were offered to parents to purchase in the school supply boxes back in the Spring.  This is the list of items that you would need to purchase if you did NOT purchase the school supply box earlier in the school year.

Please note, when you get your teacher letter there may be a few additional items specific to that teacher but this will cover the majority of things that your child needs for the upcoming school year.

Thanks to the PTO all other school supplies have been purchased for students!  If you would like to see the list of items that the PTO purchased for each student please click here.

Trenton Thunder Gift Certificates!

The Trenton Thunder has given us gift certificates good for 4 tickets to any of the remaining Trenton Thunder home games this season (2017). All you need to do is bring the certificate to the ticket office or call them by phone to check availability for a specific game that you would like to attend.

These gift certificates have a face value of $48.00. We are selling them as a fundraiser for only $30.00!! This means that a family of 4 can go to a ball game for just $30.00 that's less than $8.00 a ticket!!

Tickets will be delivered to you via US Mail and are available on a first come first serve basis. So don't delay click here to order your tickets today before they are all gone!!!

Every Kid In A Park - Free Pass for 4th Graders

4th Grade National Park Passes!!  

Hey fourth graders! See America's natural wonders and historic sites for free.  Every Kid in a Park - you and your family get free access to hundreds of parks, lands, and waters from now until the end of August.  Explore ancient dwellings. See a waterfall taller than a building. Stay close to home, or travel somewhere new. Now's the perfect time for an unforgettable outing. All 4th graders should visit the website to print your FREE pass.


We are looking for an individual to shadow our treasurer.  This position is held by a parent that has a 6th grader next year so after next year they will need someone to take over their position. It would be great if that someone was able to act as an assistant and shadow the current treasurer this upcoming year so that when they took over next year by themselves they would understand better what to do. If interested please let us know.

Looking For Parents with Special Talents!!!

Every week the LIS students have a short Morning Meeting assembly from 8:40-9:00 am. LIS is looking for parents who have a special talent, skill or job that they are willing to share with the students. If you would be willing to share your talent with the LIS students, please contact your child's house leader. This is great way to be involved in the school. 4th grade Ms. Heller (jheller@ltps.org) 5th grade Mr. Boggs (dboggs@ltps.org) 6th grade Mr. Barrett (fbarrett@ltps.org)






TWO Hour Delayed Openings:

If we are to have a delayed opening it will be a 2 hour delay.  The doors to LIS will open for students 2 hours after regular time (10:15 am). Teachers are expected to sign in 2 hours after regular time (10:30 am) and will start 2 hours after regular time (10:40 am)

General Information - Doors Open 8:15am

LIS doors open at 8:15 am every school day. If your child arrives prior to this start time, they will remain outside until we have staff members on duty to supervise. Especially during these cold winter months, please do not drop off your child until 8:15 am. Our homeroom time runs from 8:40 to 8:50 am. If you child arrives to school after 8:50, they are considered late to school and you will need to come into the main office to sign them into school for the day.
