Longleaf Elementary has been named a Participating School by the MAC (Mississippi Arts Commission). We have many professional development opportunities for our teachers to attend. We will be integrating arts in our classroom and throughout the school to allow our students to deepen their knowledge and learning experiences.

Limelight Superheroes!

It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's Longleaf Elementary's….Limelight! These SUPER kids competed in their first competition, and they came back winners! This award-winning show choir also performed for the students of Longleaf Elementary, and they were a hit!

Way to go, Limelight! We are so proud of you!

This trophy is displayed in the glass case in the front of the school!

Second Annual Longleaf Family Arts Night

The second annual Longleaf Family Arts Night was a huge success! Students and families had lots of fun! 

The student art show was fabulous! We have so many talented artists at Longleaf!

The Music Experience was fun for the kids and adults!

The Painting Experience was inspired by Jackson Pollock. Blowing paint is so much fun! 

The kids loved learning about mixing colors! It's always fun when you get to drink your art! 

The Collage Experience was inspired by Henri Matisse's Cutouts! The kids learned to paint with scissors! 

The Photography Experience was a lot of fun!

The Pottery Experience was a hit! The kids made some really cool sculptures! 

We added a new experience this year…The Dance Experience! 

We had so many wonderful pieces of art in the Local Artist Silent Auction! 

The night would not have been complete without a performance from our award-winning show choir, Limelight! 

What a great night! I can't wait until next year!
