Lois Lenski Elementary School, home of the Superstars, is nestled in a suburban neighborhood in Centennial, Colorado. Named for the children's author and one of thirteen elementary schools in the Littleton Public School District, Lois Lenski has 549 amazing students who find Lenski their home away from home. Each student comes to school to learn how to become a better reader, writer, and problem solver, all while making strong and meaningful connections between friends and staff.
