    Principal's Message

    Welcome to R. J. Longstreet! 


    Dear Longstreet Families,


    We are off to a successful start thanks to our Longstreet Parents who made sure students arrived ready for a new year. Our teachers appreciate all the school supplies so many of you donated to classrooms. We continue to see an outpouring of supplies, materials, uniform shirts, and more from our many business partners and community members who work diligently to support our school in this and many other ways. Did you know that the Ponce Inlet Lions received the Commissioners Business Recognition Award at a State Summit in June 2018 from Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart for their volun-teer efforts at RJ Longstreet? We are truly blessed to have such community assistance as well as the support of our school families.

    One area we again need your help is seeing students come to school daily and especially ON TIME! Beginning in September students with perfect attendance for the month will receive a bracelet allowing them to wear a school appropriate outfit of their choice on Friday, October 5th. Each month students who earn perfect attendance will receive a different colored bracelet that allows them to have a free dress day at school. We will eventually add no tardies to the criteria for the bracelet. School begins for us at 7:45am although students are marked tardy after 7:55am.

    We look forward to seeing everyone at Open House on Thursday, September 13th beginning at 5pm with a PTA dinner followed by our Annual Title I Meeting. Once in the classrooms you will be amazed at what has taken place in just a few short weeks at school. Our students and teachers work hard to make each day count at Longstreet.

    We again thank you for ensuring your children arrive on time daily and ready for school.
