Education, and the greatness of our nation

One of the most important institutions in our society is public education. Of the approximately 55 million K-12 aged children in the United States, it is estimated that 90 percent are enrolled in public schools.

Summer Lunch Program for Students

Students and families throughout our communities will be able to access free lunches this summer. Meals will be provided to any child under the age of 18. Adults with a child will be able to eat at "no charge" until funding dollars run out.

Meals will be provided at Countryside Village, Roth Rock Dell Park, Kanemoto Park, Carr Park and the Longmont Youth Center. Please review the flyer for days, times and activities.

Recycled Art Show Winners

Thanks to everyone who participated in the first ever Longmont Estates Elementary Recycled Art Show! We had a lot of entries, and it was neat to see how students used material that would otherwise have been thrown away. Before you throw something out at home, think about how else it might be used! At home, consider buying products with less packaging or which create less landfill waste. Don’t forget to sign up for the city’s curbside composting service, too! Here are the winners from the 2018 recycled art show:
