Littleton Elementary is proud to annually participate in the community service program to raise funds for the American Heart Association. We’re joining the fight against our nation’s number 1 and number 3 killers- Cardiovascular diseases and strokes. The American Heart Association is dedicated to helping people live longer, healthier lives. The money we raise helps people in our community learn how to prevent heart disease and stroke and also helps our local patient care. Jump Rope for Heart is a fun event that helps our children understand the importance of community service and physical activity while helping to save lives. Our efforts truly make a difference.

Littleton Elementary continues to be involved in raising awareness for Autism. Autism impairs a person's ability to communicate and how they interact to others. It is also associated with rigid routines and repetitive behaviors, such as following very specific routines. Symptoms of Autism can range from very mild to quite severe. The Littleton school team participates with fund raisers such as organizing donations, selling T-shirts and puzzle pieces for the Autism Speaks foundation.
During the United Way kickoff our school plans events that the student body can enjoy and at the same time raise money for the United Way. We have activities like pay to be out of uniform. Which class can collect the most coins? We also strive to get 100% staff participation; this can be done by giving a one time donation or a chosen amount deducted from each paycheck.
Harry Chaplin Food Bank is a community food bank that the students and staff participated in collecting canned goods, which was donated to the program. This organization helps feed the needy, especially, during Thanksgiving and Christmas. This valuable community service is needed because without their kind generosity many people would go hunger in our community.

Dr. Robinson Day was started to celebrate the life of the person that the school was named after. Dr. Carrie D. Robinson was Principal of Littleton Academy the first year it was built. She opened the school. It was a Magnet School at that time. After Dr. Robinson died the school requested that the name be changed to honor her life long work in education.
