We hope you had a relaxing summer and are ready for another exciting school year. We invite you to join our team this year as we explore new ways to aid our children through their challenging middle school years. Our meetings are open to everyone.

Thank you Volunteers, Staff, and Families!
The Longfellow PTO would like to extend our sincere thank you to the families, staff and friends who were supportive throughout the 2022-23 school year! We held our annual fall Pinnacle fundraiser. Through the hard work and support of our families, staff, and friends, we raised over $15,000. With those funds, we were able to purchase classroom supplies, help to bring an author in to work with each POD, purchase Newberry Medal award books and books for classroom libraries, provide bussing for various field trips, snacks for all students during state testing week(s), funds toward yearbooks and the 8th grade recognition celebration as well as other contributions. We look forward to supporting our school again this fall.
We will place staff requests for assistance (example – covering books) as well as opportunities to volunteer for Parent Teacher Conference meals in our monthly e-mail. Even if you cannot attend a PTO meeting, being able to help with a food item at conferences or being able to help collect envelopes or with prize distributions for the fundraiser, makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.
Thanks again for your generous support of Longfellow PTO!
