Welcome Incoming 6th Graders and New Families!
We are so glad you and your family are joining the Longfellow Community! You probably have many questions about your new school, and we'll be happy to answer all of them! Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
- How do I sign up for zero period music or 7th period jazz?
Simply come to the class the first day of school to register. Zero period students should come to the breezeway inside the Derby Street gate at 8:00 on Aug. 30.
- Does Longfellow have lockers?
No. Students must have their backpacks with them all day. Some students choose to get rolling backpacks.
- Does Longfellow have PE uniforms?
No. Students are required to change their clothes for PE class, but they can wear any clothes that are approriate for doing sports - shorts, sweats, T-shirts, and proper shoes.
You may bring a combination lock to secure your belongings during PE class. PE lockers are not for all-day use, just for your PE period.
- What school supplies do I need?
The teachers require every student to have a three-ring heavy-duty binder which includes
six tab dividers and a zippered pencil case to fit in the binder.
In addition, there are other basic supplies which students should bring to school everyday: 2 pens and 2 pencils, a highlighter, an eraser, a two pocket folder for homework, a 12-inch ruler, and lined notebook paper (3-hole).

The first quarter of middle school is done! Thank you for all that you are doing to support your child at home with distance learning.
It has been great to get to know all the 6th graders! Students are kind, helpful, and each bring their own personality to the class. They are eager to learn, even through this new way of learning. Through the technical challenges, bumps in the road, constant “you're muted” reminders to each other, we have made it through together.
Please continue to keep in touch with teachers through Remind or email. We look forward to meeting with you during Parent Teacher Conferences.
The Longfellow 6th Grade Team
El primer cuarto de la escuela intermedia ha terminado! Gracias por todo lo que está haciendo para apoyar a su hijo/a en casa con el aprendizaje a distancia.
¡Ha sido genial conocer a todos los alumnos de 6º grado! Los estudiantes son amables, serviciales y cada uno aporta su propia personalidad a la clase. Están ansiosos por aprender, incluso a través de esta nueva forma de asistir a la escuela. A través de los desafíos técnicos, los baches en el camino, los constantes recordatorios de "estás silenciado/a" entre nosotros, lo hemos logrado juntos.
Sigan manteniéndose en contacto con los maestros a través de Remind.com o el correo electrónico. Esperamos reunirnos con ustedes durante las conferencias entre padres y maestros.
