Longfellow Parent Association (LPA)

"Let us put our minds together and see what life we will make for our children." - Chief Joseph

The Longfellow Parents’ Association works to:

  • raise funds to help pay for materials and experiences that enrich our children’s learning
  • provide information to families on issues important to both the Longfellow community as well as the Bozeman School District as a whole
  • facilitate communication among Longfellow parents, teachers, staff, children and the larger district
  • build community through many activities and events throughout the school year

All Longfellow parents and guardians are members of the LPA and are invited to join monthly meetings held at the school. At these meetings, members brainstorm great ideas for the good of our school, committees report on events and activities, fundraising efforts are coordinated and a Principal’s Report is given. Attending LPA meetings is a fantastic way to get involved and stay up-to-date on what is happening at Longfellow. Members present during LPA meetings are eligible to vote and thus be involved in decision-making. A Volunteer Sign-Up Link here.
