Welcome to Rexford / Longfellow! Our school enrolls about 440 students in grades Kindergarten through 4th Grade, with five to six sections in each grade. Our school is located in downtown Clintonville, next to the Public Library and all of our downtown businesses! We are about 40 minutes away from both Appleton and Green Bay, and our closer neighboring towns include Shawano, New London, Marion, Tigerton, and Wittenberg.
Here at Rexford / Longfellow, our dedicated and caring staff of 60 professionals and several paraprofessionals focus on core academic subjects, while also enriching students with daily classes in art, music, physical education, library, and life skills. Because not all learners are alike, we offer specialized programming for special education, gifted and talented, and English Language Learners. Our special education teachers co-teach with regular education teachers. All grade levels also have daily intervention time for students to practice at the levels they are at. We also have reading specialists, math interventionists, and classroom coaches, to ensure students AND staff are always doing their best!
We provide monthly family activities, free of charge, so that families can enjoy a meal, an activity, and family time together. So far this year, families have experienced Family Fun Fall Evening (family pictures, a meal, and designing their family picture frame), Gingerbread House Evening (a meal and designing a family gingerbread house), Family Movie & Popcorn Night (this year was "Inside Out"), and an event is planned for each month. February will be a "We Love Our Families" Night, where families will make Valentine's cards, play math games, and be able to make & take other projects home, and March will be a family B-I-N-G-O Evening! Stay tuned for the rest of this year!
We work very hard to bridge the home and school communities together, and believe that a strong relationship builds strong students and strong learners! We are also a PBIS School, focusing on positive behaviors. We have weekly student and staff recognition and prizes, and monthly all-school assemblies and fun activities! Our newest endeavor is working toward being a trauma-sensitive school, and we are proud to say that we already have many things in place to help our students and families experience resilience and success!
Staff and students who are at our school are very proud of our family-feel here! We are a home-away-from-home for all involved, and will continue to help our students be the best that they can be! Please call or contact us if you have any questions!
Rexford / Longfellow's vision is to create a school atmosphere where students, parents, and staff all share a mutual respect and excitement for learning. We recognize and promote the correlation between a healthy active body and educational performance. We strive to instill intrinsic values while nurturing strong personal and academic growth. At our school, parents and community are welcome as an integral part of the team that educates our youth. #TruckerPride
