Message From Principal Webb
In the last few weeks, we have been busy finishing up our district FAST assessments for reading and math. The information will be shared with families at or before parent-teacher conferences. Teachers are in the process of analyzing the information to help inform their instruction. Feel free to contact your child's teacher if you have questions.
We have had a great year so far, despite all of the changes and unknowns.
I want to be sure that I thank three very important groups of people that have helped make this school year go smoothly from online learning to hybrid onsite and full online learning.
Thank you to our students who seem to be handling many of our new procedures in stride. Thank you to our staff for all of your preparation to make sure that this transition was as smooth as possible. Thank you to our families for all of your flexibility, patience, and understanding these past six months.
I appreciate our entire Longfellow community, and I am continuously reminded of how fortunate I am to serve as this school's leader. Thank you for that opportunity. And thank you for your support as we navigate this different and ever-changing school year.
The PTA meeting was changed to this Tuesday, October 20th at 6:30! Check out our Facebook page and websites to stay informed.
Congratulations to our Elementary Art Teacher of the Year-Buffy Quintero!
1st Grade Team -Teacher Feature
Mrs Nash- Mrs. Nash has been a Longfellow Longhorn since 2007. She has always taught first grade but has had 4 different classrooms in the building. Helping students feel comfortable, connected and confident at school is her top priority. As a first grader she wished her name was Nancy, got in trouble for talking too much at school and started taking dance lessons. Her favorite educational saying is "If plan A doesn't work, stay cool, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet." When she is not teaching, she is spending time with her family. Mrs. Nash's family will welcome their fourth child in 2021. Her 3 young kids are excited for a new sibling.
Ms. Hasler-Hi! I am Ms. Hasler and I love teaching first grade! This is my fifth year teaching first grade at Longfellow, so I feel like a true Longhorn now.
As a first grader, my favorite book was James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. My favorite game at recess was tag. I also played the violin and roller skated everywhere with my friends (but not at the same time!).
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my three children!
