About F4L

Friends for Long  (F4L) is the father’s organization associated with JL Long Middle School. We are a 501c(3) organization that has been providing for JL Long since 2001. Our membership for the 2015-2016 school year has topped 200 members and is comprised of dads, grandfathers and guardians that are dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of the students of Long Middle School. F4L engage and enrich the student life at JL Long through multiple projects and fundraisers throughout the year. 

Friends for Long most recently raised funds to remodel and add new lockers to the boys locker room. Past projects include all new sound and lighting for our auditorium and trophy cases for the main hall. These funds were procured from generous F4L member donations. This year F4L will fulfill many classroom related needs as well as assist with funding grade level field trips, school math/science meet, and provide admin support as needed using funding from several new F4L events.

Crossing Guards

Each day of the school year, a crossing guard is needed at Paulus and Reiger. .This is a very rewarding commitment, and a wonderful way to show our presence on campus.
