LCDC has started a fundraising page to help raise money for our school playground. We are hoping to get funding for some “loose parts” play materials that will support our children’s natural desire to build on the small playground. Below is a link to the Donors Choose page we have set up. You may share this link on your social media accounts or with family and friends to help us meet our goal.
We are excited to work together to bring these materials to our students. We know this is such an important cause, and will greatly impact the students at our school.
Be sure to let people know that they can use the code LIFTOFF, which will allow Donors Choose to match any donation made in the next 7 days.
Thank you for helping to support our students. You are all amazing!

Dear Preschool Student Parent/Guardian,
Each year, the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) requires all Colorado public schools to count the students attending school. This count determines the funding we will receive from the state. We are approaching the student count period scheduled for Tuesday, September 27, 2016 through Thursday, October 20, 2016. The official count day determined through the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) is Wednesday, October 5, 2016. Aurora Public Schools preschool classes do not attend on the official count day, so the state has allowed us to use Thursday, October 6, 2016 as the actual count day. Therefore, it is very important your child is in attendance on this day.
We thank you for your continued support for your child’s education. Our goal is to have 100% student attendance on Thursday, October 6, 2016 and to receive all of the available state funds so we can provide your child with high quality preschool programming.
