Welcome to the 2019-2020 Longfellow Community
Welcome to the wonderful Longfellow community where inspiring Excellence is a tradition. Congratulations to the entire Longfellow community for winning the 2019 Governor’s Award for Educational Excellence. Longfellow is one of only eight schools in Virginia to receive this honor for 2019. We have earned this highest honor because the entire community, including our PTA parents, had a role in this achievement.
Our 2019 Support Excellence Campaign looks to provide new technology for the classroom to enhance every students learning, grants and stipends for teachers, more mobile computer lab carts, classroom supplies, including assignment books, teacher appreciation events and teacher and staff development programs. We hope to raise $60,000 to fully fund all of these programs. To reach that goal we are asking each family to contribute $150, if possible, and donations of any size are appreciated. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
Together we can inspire and support Excellence at Longfellow.
Jennifer Von Elm, PTA President
