It's an opportunity to learn what LPS does in these areas, ask questions and provide feedback to the board. Parents, employees, community members, and middle and high school students are invited. Those community conversations are set for Jan. 21 at Bemis Library, 6014 S. Datura St.; Jan. 22 at Columbine Valley Town Hall, 2 Middlefield Road; Feb. 18 at Koelbel Library, 5955 S.

• The Arapahoe High School Post Grad Department announced that College Night, an informative evening for juniors, sophomores, freshmen and their parents, takes place from 7-9 p.m. Feb. 10. Attendees can attend sessions specific to their grade level to better plan for the future.

Arapahoe Community College, Centura Health and LPS are offering a health-care pre-apprenticeship program to connect high school juniors and seniors to opportunities in health care.
