Make sure to complete the PTA Participant(s) Waiver for your child to participate in our upcoming Jogathon. Parents/Guardians only need to fill this form out ONCE while your child is enrolled at Longfellow. Take care of it today! Online waiver available HERE and hard copies are available in the office.

*If your child attended Harvest Festival or an after school Reflections workshop, he/she should already have one on file. If you are unsure if you've filled one out and would like to confirm your child's waiver, please drop us a message HERE.

Did your children receive a birthday or Christmas gift they have no use for? Consider donating any new, unused toys/games to our Jogathon opportunity drawing. All donations are tax-deductible and a receipt can be provided upon request. Click HERE to send a message to coordinate drop off or pick up. Thank you!

Winning Design - Spirit Wear Socks

Last week Longfellow students, teachers, and parents voted on their favorite sock design to be sold as part of our spirit wear. Thank you to all who voted! It was very close, but Design D came out on top with 27% of the votes, followed by Design B with 26%, Design A with 25%, and Design C with 22%. Hold any disappointment at bay as we hope to eventually sell all the designs in the future. 

Look out for the availability of online pre-ordering in the coming week to make sure you get a pair!
