PTA Restaurant Night @ Raising Cain's Chicken Fingers

Join LMS PTA for dinner on October 24th from 5 - 9 pm at Raising Cain's Chicken on Alameda and 12th. Remember to tell them you are with Longfellow.

6th Grade Art Class

Students studied the color wheel and color themes in art class while learning about artist Emma Lindstrom and her paint pours. They used their knowledge of color themes and applied it to their own paint pour on old vinyl records. They even got to play their vinyl before they did their paint pour on them!

Switch of Schedule for October 25

Due to the PSAT test, LMS will follow an altered schedule. See below and note the different lunch times for all students.

PSAT testing

All 8th graders will be testing on Wednesday, October 25 in the morning. Please let Mrs. Whittle know if your student has a doctor's appointment that morning.
