Tuesday Crew

20161227lancaster-1

It’s been a pleasure serving as the Tuesday photographer for the Longfellow 365 project this year! I started this project as a newcomer to Minnesota, having moved here in July 2015. Each weekly photo pushed me to get to know our neighborhood and neighbors better, and for that, I thank you!
Allow me to introduce the crew behind each Tuesday photo, from left: George (boxer): Location Scout; Kristen, Photographer; Linde (pointer mix): Photo Editing Assistant, Couch Cuddles Division; Steven, Photo Selection Superstar (whom I thank for 52 weeks of “so, Photo A, or Photo B?”)
Thanks, Longfellow, for a wonderful year!

Longfellow School

20161207lancaster

Initially opened in 1918, Longfellow Community School served Longfellow’s elementary-aged students until 2010. The school reopened in 2011 as Longfellow High School, an alternative school program that serves pregnant and parenting teens and their children. The school’s vision is that every teen parent will be prepared for post-secondary education and employment, and that every child will be ready for kindergarten.
