Please help us report about our BUILDING & FACILITY needs to the Public Education Department!  Facilities Adequacy Standards Survey 

The PED would like input from everyone associated with our school: teachers, parents, students, support staff, and any other users of our facility. The input supports the Public School Capital Outlay Council (PSCOC) in creating better schools for our staff and students.

August, 2018

Welcome Longfellow Students and Staff!  We are quickly coming to the end of long summer days, and the cool morning air tells us the fall school season is upon us.  

It is my pleasure to welcome back returning students and staff as well as welcome new students and staff members.  We have a great year of learning in store.  

Our school's focus is on student learning:  
every child every day.  
We strive daily to ENGAGE students in learning, 
EQUIP them with every academic and social tool they will need, 
and EMPOWER them to succeed in both learning and life.

Thank you to parents, families, and community members for joining us in this most important journey and providing your support to students along the way.

Have a great 2018-19 school year,

Mrs. Kimberly Sanchez
