Longfellow Elementary School takes pride in creating a learning environment that allows students, families, staff, and community members to work together in the best interest of children. The school partners with the Kiwanis Club, Lunch Buddies, Youth-Tutoring-Youth, Nourish, Feeding America, and Junior Achievement, just to name a few. Longfellow is a Title 1 and Achievement Gap Reduction (AGR) School that is provided with additional funding to allow small class sizes and services that help to set our students up for success. Longfellow offers all students Universal Free Breakfast and Lunch and works with Nourish to supply additional sources of food through the Backpack Program. All students benefit greatly from this community involvement.
The Longfellow staff has worked at length to infuse strong literacy education as part of its educational program. Longfellow is using technology to improve student motivation and engagement that enhances the curriculum for both interventions as well as enrichment activities. Each classroom is equipped with a SMARTBoard, iPads or Chromebooks, ELMO document cameras and other technology to enrich our students’ experience.
Longfellow Elementary has been a leader in the District and the State in implementing PBIS, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports. This system allows for positive ways to recognize students for following the Longfellow Way of Respecting Self, Others and the Environment. Longfellow has been recognized as a PBIS School of Distinction by the WI PBIS Network.
