I’m not sure about you, but I feel like I blinked and the month of February went poof! So much happened at Longfellow in February: Valentine’s Day, Black History Month, Field Trips galore!, the Harmony Project concert, African-American History Bee (Longfellow brought home first place!), Mrs. Nelson’s Book Fair (many thanks to volunteers Xochitl and Rosana for all the time you volunteered and in making the book fair possible!), and of course SCIENCE NIGHT!!! The Science Night committee out-did themselves once again this year, despite the weather “pulling the blinds” on our stargazing. PLUS, in case you missed it, the Executive Director of the Pasadena Education Foundation presented a check for $2,000.00 to Mrs. Ingber and our Annual Fund Chair, Steve Cole, for Longfellow School!!!
Time is MARCHing on though! Here’s what’s happening this month:
