Star Polisher – Anna Langenbach

Langenbach and studentWho would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mrs. Langenbach,” writes Eli, a seventh grader at Mt. Solo Middle School.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

“She helps people through a lot of hard times and she is always there to help.”

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our middle school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.

Thoughtexchange: let us know your top safety ideas

School safety–a  current topic of various opinions and many comments–is the subject of  a digital conversation offered by Longview starting Monday, June 4.

Through the Thoughtexchange process, all community members are encouraged to take part in voicing their ideas on the most important considerations about school safety and security.

Improvements to Thoughtexchange now make it possible for participants to review and respond to others’ ideas after a number of ideas have been collected.

The information gathered in this Thoughtexchange will help the district as it constantly works to keep students and staff members safe, and to best respond when school safety is threatened.

If you haven’t participated in one of our Thoughtexchange conversations before and don’t want to miss out this time, please let us know. Spanish participation is also available.
