We invite you to become a part of the Longfellow community by volunteering. There are so many ways, big and small, to get involved. Recent studies of parental involvement in their children’s school show a positive relationship between the child’s success and the level of parent involvement*.
Volunteers at Longfellow help with activities that take place during the school day, assist at events happening after school, and work on tasks that can be done from home. No contribution of time is too small.
To get on the email list to learn about volunteer opportunities, fill out the Communication Sign Up form and be sure to check the “Volunteering” checkbox.
If you want to volunteer directly with children, you must complete the paperwork process, found on the Volunteer Paperwork page.
