Students are setting their goals and filling the halls at Long Elementary. As students work to develop ‘My Learning Plan’ goals for the start of the new school year, they are posting them on pennants in the school hall. It creates a wonderful display and a powerful statement about our school’s commitment to achievement. Ask your child about their current goals.
Join the staff, students and families of Long School for our Open House celebration of the new school year. We will begin with a brief presentation of information and initiatives in the gym at 5:30. Following this, enjoy visiting classrooms and teachers, checking out student work through the halls and meeting other parents while enjoying refreshments in our cafeteria. Our Book Fair will be open in the Media Center from 6:00 to 7:30. We hope to see you there!
It’s that time! Long School staff are preparing to welcome everyone back for a great 2015-2016 school year. Here are some important dates to keep in mind.
