Celebrating 10 Years of Excellence
Annual Fund Fundraiser - Update - $ 3,050 Raised!
Thank you to all of the families who have donated items or funds to our Annual Fund Fundraiser thus far! Please feel FREE to share the donation link with your family and friends! They will receive a receipt immediately when they contribute. The receipt can be used as a charitable, tax-deductible donation credit for the 2022 year. We will also be receiving donations until January 31, 2023, for the next income tax year!
We ask each Longleaf family to participate in the life and financial support of the school by making a contribution in any amount. Every dollar is greatly valued and appreciated. Our goals for the Annual Fund are to have 100% participation by Longleaf families and to raise $25,000. No amount is too small or too large! A high level of participation from the families Longleaf serves greatly enhances our school’s opportunities when we seek grants.

Five Stars for Cast and Crew of A Midsummer Night's Dream!
The students truly made absolute MAGIC on the stage "in the round" (with the audience on ALL sides of the stage) as they presented William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream!" As Mrs. Hewes put it, "you could see all of the hard work that went into the performance, from the cleverly choreographed fight scenes to the fabulous fairies frolicking at the theatre entrance! None of this could be accomplished without the stage crew, from the lighting, costumers and makeup artists to the set designers. The trees and the wall played pivotal roles in the performance as well. I was GOBSMACKED!!!"
We could not all agree with with Mrs. Hewes any more! Thank you, Mr. Frost and Mrs. Smith, for directing such an amazing performance!
Please take the time to view the Cast & Crew!
