Pride Cards are coming!

PRIDE cards will be passed out to students this week. This year LMS will be adopting the use of PRIDE cards as part of the school’s PBIS initiative to model appropriate behavior. Students will be issued their PRIDE card at the beginning of the year that will permit them certain liberties throughout the school. The objective of this program is to foster student personal responsibility, facilitate communication with authority figures and peers, and improve the culture of respect at Longfellow Middle School.

Students at Longfellow are expected to exemplify purpose, respect, integrity, dedication, and effort. It is the expectation that you will bring and wear your PRIDE card while at school and school sponsored activities.


For our families that participate in NPS Indian Education
