Please consider helping out with any of our activities.  We can use any and all help that we can get, so even if you can only come for one hour at one activity that’s still GREAT!!

What are the rewards of volunteering?  What is it that makes it worthwhile to take time out of busy schedules to help out at school? Parents report the following benefits of volunteering:

  • Firsthand Knowledge about the School: Volunteering gives you the opportunity to meet teachers and observe what happens at school. You can then evaluate what your child says (and what other parents tell you) based on your own impressions.
  • A Sense of Belonging: Volunteering connects you to the place where your child spends many hours each day.
  • Social Opportunities: Volunteers meet other parents and make new friends. Sometimes it is difficult to get to know people in your neighborhood.
  • A Sense of Achievement: Volunteering can produce tangible rewards, such as watching a child you tutor grasp a math concept or seeing the new computer purchased with grocery receipts.
  • Appreciation from your child: Children like to see visible signs that you care. They enjoy seeing you relate to school staff members. It helps them link home and school.
  • Reinforcing the Importance of School: By spending time on school activities, you are letting students know that school is important – you want them to work hard and achieve success.

Contact your student's teacher, office staff or the PTO at longfellowptomail@gmail.com for more information on how to get involved.

An innovative program being used by schools across America which helps students to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father figures in their life. Our goal is to have fathers and father figures (Dads, granddads, uncles, step-dads, adult brothers, etc.) spend at least one day this school year at Longfellow to be a positive male role model and provide an extra set of eyes and ears. Signing Up is Easy!  | Sign Up Instructions
