Longfellow Assistant Principal
I am so happy to inform you that for the 2015-2016 school year, Longfellow Elementary will welcome an Assistant Principal. We will share this position with Westmoor Elementary. We are thrilled to announce that Jeremy Behnke will be filling this position. Currently Mr. Behnke is a 4th grade teacher at Lincoln Heights. It will be great to have him at Longfellow!
Our 3rd - 5th grade students have been working hard taking their NeSA assessments. A schedule of the assessments has gone home. Thanks so much for working with us on these assessments. Please be sure that your children have plenty of rest, a healthy breakfast, and encouragement to do their best prior to taking the assessment. These state mandated tests are very important to our school.
Summer School 2015
Summer s chool will be held this year June 1 - 25. Summer school is held on Monday through Thursdays. Summer school hours are 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. Please contact your child's teacher or Mrs. Bahl if you have questions about summer school. Students will need to be registered by April 2, 2015 to be included in summer school activities. Summer school will include instruction in the areas of Language Arts and Math.
We are required by the state to practice three tornado drills each year. We did not participate in the county wide drill last week due to NeSA testing. This month we will practice tornado drills on Monday, April 13 and Wednesday, April 29. We practiced one tornado drill in the fall.
If you have students who will be in Kindergarten in the fall, please come in as soon as possible to get them registered. We will need to have a state certified birth certificate. This helps with our planning for fall classrooms.
