LPA MEETINGS, COMMUNITY & SOCIAL EVENTS:
LPA Monthly Meetings:
All Longfellow parents and guardians are members of the LPA and are invited to join monthly meetings held in the Longfellow Library on the 1st Monday of each month from 12pm-1pm. Hear the latest news from the LPA, how to get involved, updates from Principal Laura Conwell, and special guest speakers.
Longfellow Community Lynx Events:
We are working on a few evening events through the school year where parents & guardians will be able to come together for a chance to meet each other, hear from guest speakers on important topics, and get the latest news from the LPA. More details to come!
Friday Morning Coffee Socials:
** THIS EVENT IS TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED** On the 2nd Friday of each month, please join us for some free coffee from 8-8:45am on the front lawn. Please bring your own mug. Meet the LPA and other members of our Longfellow community!
Run for Longfellow:
The Run for Longfellow is our largest fundraising event of the year! We kick off the event with a pep rally the week before at the school (with music, guest speakers and fun)! The actual Run takes place during the school day usually in early October at Bogert Park. This fun event encourages kids’ enthusiasm for being active and affords students the opportunity to participate in helping raise this year’s LPA operating funds.
