LONGFELLOW MS/ MCLEAN HS CHORAL CLUB INTEREST MEETING – STUDENTS AND PARENTS ARE INVITED

Longfellow Middle and McLean High School Choral Department are excited to announce a joint choral program available every Monday afternoon from 2:45-4:15.  Longfellow students will work with the Choral Director and choral students at McLean High School.  Ms. Martin has been the director at McLean for twenty years, holds a Masters in conducting, and is a soprano soloist in the DC area.  Students will learn a variety of types and techniques in vocal music and have the opportunity to perform in four concerts with the high school choral department.  Students will also perform in events at Longfellow throughout the year, in preparation for a school based choral program in the following year.  We are working on having a bus to take students  from Longfellow every Monday at the conclusion of the school day and then the students can be picked up from McLean at 4:30pm.

Jump Start August 8th-12th

There are still spaces available for Longfellows Jump Start Program August 8th-12th. Participants will improve math & literacy skills through small group sessions with Longfellow teachers.  Students will also participate in sessions covering topics such as study skills, test taking strategies, and time management with a Longfellow counselor.  Jump Start helps ensure a smoother transition  for rising 7th graders to middle school by introducing them to staff, peers, school layout, and basic policies before the school year begins. The program will go from 8:30AM-12:30PM and is free of charge. A morning and afternoon snack will be provided. Please contact Mr. Barrows with any questions (rtbarrows1@fcps.edu).
