Love for Lions

Fabulous Donors,

Words cannot express how truly grateful we are at Longfellow for your generosity this holiday season. We appreciate so much your willingness to sponsor a Lion for the holidays. The difference you make in the lives of our students is undeniable.

Pick up day was spectacular! Each family received your gifts, a turkey, bag of potatoes and 3 bags of groceries. It is obvious how much thought you all put in to your shopping for our students. We were able to sponsor all 103 students this year!

We could NOT do this each year without you. Again, we appreciate your giving hearts more than words can express. We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and a VERY Happy New Year.

LMS Binder Supplies

As we begin a new semester, it is a good idea to work with your student in restocking their binders.

Loveworks accepting application

Loveworks ( is accepting applications for the spring semester. Students will have lessons on leadership and person growth with topics ranging from Communicating to audiences to influencing peers to self-leadership and strengths. Students will also get to grow through hands-on learning projects in areas ranging from athletics to culinary to video game design or professional writing. The spring semester will also have a big focus on entrepreneurship and equipping students to start their own businesses!
