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.
To read a letter from Superintendent Maleyko regarding the March 14 student planned “walk-out” to honor the victims of the Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy please visit his blog: https://superintendent.dearbornschools.org/

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!
On December 5, Long School welcomed members of the Red Wings school assembly program. The team, led by Coach Ryan, spoke with students about the importance of education and dedication. They also had students and staff actively participating in several hockey related competitions. Along with the insightful messages about working hard, eating healthy and exercising, the club donated a full set of floor hockey equipment to the students of Long School! Thank you and Let’s Go Red Wings!
