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. Second only to parenting, the longstanding institution of public education will have the greatest influence on America’s future.
In Colorado, we’ve experienced an ongoing discussion around the adequacy of resources for our public schools with mixed results.
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.
We still have three positions open for PTO for next year. In order to offer all that we do for the school, we need volunteers.

Please send an email to PTOLongmontEstates@gmail.com to volunteer or fin
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:
Let’s celebrate another successful school year at Longmont Estates with some fun and dancing! The cost is $2 per person, with a family maximum of $10 per family to get into this dance party. This year the proceeds will be going to support the cost of Avid for Adventure in the 2018-2019 school year. We will be serving chips, cookies, and drinks. So get some dinner before you come dance the night away with your friends and DJ Chris.
"Just Between Friends" raised $253 for Longmont Estates Elementary at their recent consignment sale. These books will be distributed to classrooms and students. Thank you "Just Between Friend", Michelle Hackney, the Longmont Estates community and the people who donated. We appreciate your support of our school!
