Check out the new mural in the Long School hallway. The artwork is the design and creation of nationally known artist (and Long School parent), Mathew Sharum. It depicts Long School along with its namesake, Samuel B. Long and was made possible thanks to contributions from our outgoing fifth grade class, our PTA and our school.
Long students will have access to Capstone throughout the summer. This site has many ebooks for students to enjoy based on their interest and level. Here is the link to Capstone.

Our 4th and 5th graders have been chosen to be part of a study on health and physical activity conducted through Wayne State University. An opt out slip will be sent home. If you DO NOT want your child to participate in the study, the sheet should be signed and returned. If their participation is ok, you do not need to send the slip back.

In keeping with this month’s focus of generosity, Long students and staff donated $1 to wear pajamas last Friday. We raised $245 which was used to purchase more pajamas for our donation to Scholastic Book Clubs Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive. As a result, Long School was able to donate 70 pairs of pajamas! Thank you to Mrs. Lee and/or Mrs. McShane, who have coordinated this project for several years here at Long. Thank you to everyone for your generosity!
