Join us!

If you are interested in joining the PTA and actively support the students and teachers of Longview Elementary School, please call the school office at (828) 485-0975 and leave a message for the PTA. We are always looking for volunteers. Our PTA meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at the school, and usually last about one hour. Financially, the PTA supports the teachers' requests for educational materials for the children at all grade levels, the Weekly Readers, field trips, the student's planning books, physical education equipment, new playground equipment, and other contributions to enhance the educational process for the children of Longview Elementary School. We work closely with the teachers and the administrative staff including Principal Judy Jolly. We also have FUN!
