What's Happening at Longfellow

TV PROGRAM FEATURES LONGFELLOW
STUDENTS LEARNING ABOUT DIVERSITY

Longfellow Elementary School’s Diversity Book Club was featured on WCSH Channel 6’s 207 show on Jan. 29. If you missed it, you can click here to see Maine author Anne Sibley O'Brien interacting with Longfellow students and talking with them about all the ways there are to be new and to be welcoming.

O’Brien presented her latest book, “I’m New Here,” to Longfellow students. The picture book for elementary school students features three characters that are recent immigrants, and focuses on their experience being new in elementary school and the compassion students can show to friends as they begin something new.

The presentation was part of the I'm Your Neighbor project, which helps students understand the various cultures that new students coming into their classroom come from.
