We have amassed quite a few hoodies and sweatshirts in our lost and found. We would love to clean that up before Christmas break. Please remind your child(ren) to look at the tables. Parents/guardians are also welcome to look for any items that their kids might be missing.
Looking for a few more gifts to put under the Christmas tree? Books are ALWAYS a great choice. Purchasing books through this link means money will do directly towards more books for our library!

November 14, 2023 was a special day as Mayor Bob Everson declared this week American Education Week. Ella Frampton was chosen to represent Longfellow as she exemplifies the best of Longfellow; hard work, kindness, perseverance, respectfulness, humbleness, and a positive attitude. Way to go, Ella!
Today was flip-flop day. Teachers dress as students and students dress as teachers. What a fun day we had, seeing what the kids came up with. Please check the newsletter coming out at the end of the month for more pictures from our dress-up days.
Unfiltered REALity (The Mitchell schools' tobacco prevention group) will be hosting free movies this Friday afternoon at the theatre. The catch-there will be no tobacco in either of these movies. Everyone is welcome (movie is free-concessions are available at regular cost).
Remember that there is NO SCHOOL on Friday. What a great way to celebrate your award winning kids!
The PRIDE is strong at Longfellow today! We celebrated being recognized as a Nationally Distinguished School!! What an honor to be named as one of only 100 schools in the nation and only 2 elementary schools in South Dakota. WOW! What a testament to the hard-working, dedicated, passionate staff and students we have at Longfellow! Our day began with a delicious breakfast for the staff. Then we had a ceremony where Dr Graves (former MSD Superintendent) represented the South Dakota Deparment of Education and spoke to our students. Every member of our School Board attended, as did Dr Childs as well as past and present members of the MSD staff. We topped off the day with cake for all staff and students because, well, every celebration deserves cake!
We are grateful for our Veterans!
Thank you Dr. Childs for grilling lunch for our entire Longfellow Staff today! It was delicious and a nice treat!!!! We appreciate you very much!
