UPDATE: We've had another AMAZINGLY successful “Pennies for Patients” Cancer Campaign this school year! From April 22-May 13th our students and staff synergized with the community and raised a whopping $4,056.36 !! The money will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help cancer patients and their families in the Texas Medical Center and Texas Gulf Coast area. Click here to see the details.
UPDATE: Our $1 Free Dress Fridays over four weeks grossed (with parent, staff, student contributions) a remarkable $500 dollars! Longfellow will donate the funds to the Greater Houston Flood Recovery Fund to help people in Harris, Montgomery, and Ft. Bend counties affected by the recent April 18th Houston-area floods.Thank you for your support!
We'd like to recognize Peter R., who set a record for the most points ever earned by a Longfellow student with an astounding 784.0 total Accelerated Reader (AR) points. The previous title-holder was Nathan R. (his brother) with 690 points! We'd also like to recognize the following students who have earned AR points by reading books, taking and passing tests (Being Proactive, Beginning with the End in Mind).

April 7, 2016 - During the day-long expo, students acted as guides, greeting visitors, shaking hands, and welcoming them to Longfellow. In their classrooms, students explained some of the components of “The Leader in Me,” which include each class’s mission statement, every student’s leadership notebook, and individual “anchor charts,” which focus on an area where the student needs support.
