Kindness is our trait this quarter. Our cougars showed up in packs after lunch to come and write kind notes to our support staff on Valentine’s Day. Lots of love for our amazing custodian, lunch lady, counselor, librarian, recess duties, music, band, orchestra, and PE teachers just to name a few.
The kids are so thankful for all the amazing grown ups who guide them each day. Thank you!


Attention all Longfellow Girl Scouts! Stella’s wants to buy your cookies!


Parents and caregivers,
Please mark February 1st on your calendar. The Longfellow PTO just voted to buy the Sources of Strength Curriculum for our counselor Mrs. Adams, and she is spending an evening helping parents understand the importance of this curriculum.
Our student's mental health is an important part of raising children to be able to self regulate and to learn coping skills for the world around them as they grow.
This curriculum helps teach our whole school community how to support our children in this, starting when they are young.
Please email [email protected] to reserve your spot today!


Tickets are selling fast for the February 3rd Steelheads game. Get your tickets now!
