Special Tribute to Mr. John Peeler..
Hello Mr. Peeler, I hope you are doing well. I am on a Disney Cruise, and as we are traversing the waters off of Cuba, you came to mind. I vividly remember your descriptions of the 1898 explosion of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor and how it kicked off the Spanish-American War. Thanks for teaching me all of that history stuff!
Mr. Peeler taught this student 35 years ago! LSA is so grateful to have Mr. Peeler as he continues to share his vast knowledge about history!
Happy Birthday Mr. Peeler and Mrs. Morice!

Makeover for Arty Zeitgeist the Flying Squirrel
Longleaf's well-loved mascot, Arty Zeitgeist the Flying Squirrel, is in need of a makeover!
LSA Spirit Club wants to allow all competitors to channel their creativity into this design, as Arty is a representative of the school and, therefore, its students. The competition is open from Oct 31, 2022, to Nov 18, 2022.

Select the Winter Dance Theme!
The LSA's Winter Dance will take place this upcoming January! As a part of the planning process, SGA would like this dance to be an opportunity to reflect the wants and interests of our student body. We have decided to let YOU choose the theme for this year's dance!
Choose ONE theme from the list in the survey, and submit by November 25th.
COVID Testing Registration
This year, the testing will be individual PCR tests, not pooled testing. This is great for identifying who is positive without requiring retesting for each indivdual in a positive pool.
Testing started in October on Thursdays. Please sign up for testing using the link below.
