Principal's Message

  • Chris Pisarik Longfellow Elementary School blends the tradition of a turn-of-the-century building with the modern adaptations needed to accommodate successful 21st-century learning. The rich cultural diversity of the neighborhood makes it a unique and diverse elementary school within the Iowa City Community School District. 

    The educational program here incorporates an emphasis on learning the common core curriculum through experiential learning, basic skills instruction, and enrichment opportunities. Included in the program are activities that integrate multicultural experiences, the arts, technology, and a lot of reading. The staff is committed to building high self-esteem in each child, fostering positive, cooperative attitudes and focusing on the whole child.

  • Get Moving for Healthy Kids Annual 5K and Youth Track & Field Events

    Join race ambassador Tim Dwight and Herky for this year's Get Moving for Healthy Kids walk/run on Sunday, May 20, 2018 at City High School. Get Moving for Healthy Kids is the annual walk/run event with a dual purpose — as its name implies. The event promotes and supports Healthy Kids Community Care, our area school-based health clinics. These clinics provide basic health care for children without adequate access to the health care most of us take for granted. The second purpose is to promote activity and exercise for our children (and adults too!).
