ADMINISTRATION

Welcome

Our school has approximately 360 students in kindergarten through 5th grade. We offer three full-day kindergarten classes as well as three sections in each grade level (1st through 5th). We provide a variety of regular education and special education programs to provide academic support, remediation, and/or enrichment to students based on their individual learning needs. Our art, physical education, library, and music programs (music, band, orchestra, chorus) foster the development of the whole child and complement the classroom curriculum.

The Wolf Swamp Road School is a community that believes children are eager learners. We recognize that learning is a lifeā€“long endeavor that transcends all ages. Through collaboration and meaningful dialogue, the students, parents, teachers and community bring about a feeling of mutual respect that fosters learning. Children and adults both share the need and desire to be valued. All children are different and should be valued as unique individuals. We will strive to cultivate that inherent eagerness by establishing an educational setting that respects individual differences and provides stimulating academics. It is our aim as a school community to continue to assess our current practices and to make informed decisions that support our students. All children are deserving of our best efforts. We are fortunate to have a very supportive community. The PTA is a reflection of the dedication our parents have in the Longmeadow community. Through their support, we are able to provide our students with many additional educational programs, such as after school programs and technology-based programs to be utilized in school. In addition, they provide the parents with a wealth of information. By visiting their website (https://sites.google.com/site/wolfswamppta/), you can have access to the most current information.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at your convenience. I can be reached by either email (enelson@longmeadow.k12.ma.us) or by phone (413-565-4270 ext. 103).
