Welcome to Longfellow Elementary School

June 2022

First of all, thank you to our parents and families, as well as everyone in this wonderful community, for all of the support we have received at Longfellow Elementary to help make this such a successful year. We are finishing the year with 439 students and I’m so happy to report we were in person for all but four days this past school year. 

The last school day was Wednesday, May 25th, and our school office closed for the summer on Friday, June 3rd. Registration for the 2022-23 school year can be done online at the District website. You can call the District office at 719-539-5200 if you have any questions. 

We have much to celebrate and to be grateful for. We have finished a second year of COVID with all of our students safe and healthy and we are now able to return to a full slate of field trips into the surrounding community, events that welcome parents and families back into the school, and some of our favorite activities such as the swim program for all of our students, the 3rd grade raft trip, choir performances, a school wide art show, and educational trips around the state. And our End of Year assessments are showing how much our students grew academically thanks to the efforts of our incredible teachers and support staff. 

As I will be stepping down as Principal this summer, I would love to introduce Mr. Cory Scheffel, who will be the new principal for next year, starting July 1st. He is currently the interim Principal at the High School and brings a wide range of expertise and experience to us all in the Longfellow community. We also will have Ms. Jennifer Lang as the new Dean of Students and together I have no doubt that they will be a gift to our students and the community. 

Thank you,

Chuck McKenna
