Longfellow had an outstanding performance at the soccer tournament at U.C.R. also known as the Scotty Cup. Longfellow's soccer squads played their hearts out and as a result they both won first place at the tournament. Longfellow was represented by a sixth and fifth grade soccer squad.
One of our own students at Longfellow is currently battling Leukemia. This was the motivating factor that helped propel Longfellow students and their families to raise $2,538.81 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Our students worked diligently for two weeks to raise the aforementioned money. Many of our classes made it a personal goal to bring in as much change as possible during the two weeks to help out Leukemia patients, but more importantly to make a difference for our own student dealing with this form of cancer. We would like to thank all of the students and their families for making a difference by bringing in pennies for patients! Thank you so much!
Jump Rope for Heart was a success at Longfellow. Our students were able to raise $1,259 to donate to the American Heart Association. Thank you so much to all of our families that made this event a success. Students also enjoyed the event that included our own DJ Cuellar playing the latest and greatest hits as students jumped rope. Ms. Cortes and many of our teachers also joined in the fun.
