Student Expectations

At Longfellow, we strive to exemplify P.R.I.D.E., which stands for for Purpose, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Effort. We celebrate the diversity of our students and accept that people are individuals who have the right to learn in an environment where they are respected and feel comfortable. We have high expectations for our students and we work diligently to teach them how to use respectful, professional language and various ways to demonstrate respect, civility and inclusiveness. We will continue to reinforce our expectations in the classroom and in upcoming class meetings. We will settle for nothing less than a welcoming environment for each and every student in our school. Please let me know if you have questions.
