PTA Update

This is the last week for Emerald Ticket Raffle Sales. Please turn in all money and tickets by Friday morning Sept. 30th. We will draw the prize winners during 3rd Hour Advisory class. All students who sell at least one ticket will be entered in a drawing for student prizes including gift cards to Andy Alligators, Walmart, Regal Cinemas.


Parents there is also a Grade Level Class Competition going on this week. The Advisory class for each grade with the most ticket sales through Wed. 9/28 will win a Pizza Party.


We are close to hitting the $4,000 mark where Mr. Bartell has agreed to be pied in celebration. At the $6,000 mark, Mr. Davis has agreed to be duct taped to the wall. When we hit our $8,000 goal, Ms. Spannagel has agreed to kiss a lion (or maybe a pig or dog dressed as a lion). If you need more tickets please see the PTA staff members collecting tickets in the office during first hour or contact the Longfellow PTA at lmsnormanpta@gmail.com.


Thank you to all students, parents and staff who have been working hard helping us with the fundraiser!


Have a great weekend!

LMS Binder

The LMS Binders are going great for the school year. Your student has experienced several binder checks in different classes. Help your child by checking that they have extra paper and pencils in their binders. It's about that time of year to refill their pencil pouch.

NJHS will meet Friday, September 30 at 8am in the Auditorium. This is only for students who were inducted last spring. If you have questions, please contact Traci Argo at targo@norman.k12.ok.us.
