Langley/McLean Boundary Meetings
FCPS held boundary meetings at LHS on Mon, Dec 2, 7 pm-8:30 pm and at McLean HS on Wed, Dec 4, 7 pm in the school cafeterias to gather input regarding the Langley-McLean boundary.
At these meetings, FCPS staff presented information and scenarios on how to reduce McLean HS overcrowding by moving students to Langley. Meeting attendees engaged in small group discussions and provided feedback to FCPS staff during the meetings.
The input will be used to help develop options that will be presented in boundary meetings in spring 2020. Feedback during the spring meetings will then be used to develop recommendations for the School Board. Click here for more details.
New Family Orientation
New Family Orientation (students new to Langley in grades 10, 11 & 12) was held on Thursday, August 22. Attendees received a copy of their class schedule, met school counselors and key administrators, and got a tour of the school from Langley Student Ambassadors. More information can be found on the Langley High School website under Student Services -> New Family/Student Guide.
Langley students spend their Saxon Time helping others during our monthly Saxon Service program. With 14 different charitable activities from which to choose, our Saxons good works range from making blankets for homeless shelters to making Cranes for Cancer. Please encourage your students to participate.

Langley Courtyard Legacy Tree Fundraiser
Help Transform Langley's Courtyards:
Buy a "Leaf" for the Courtyard Legacy Tree Fundraiser
Langley's PTSA is partnering with Wheat's Landscaping to transform our three courtyards -- now just institutional concrete and patches of grass--into verdant green spaces that will function as outdoor classrooms. With your support, opportunities for experiential learning -- ecology, botany, geology, water testing, etc. -- will abound!
To help us raise funds for the project, you can purchase a gold, silver, or copper-colored "leaf" or "acorn" to be engraved for the Courtyard Legacy Tree, a beautiful wall sculpture that will "grow" in Langley's front entryway where it will serve as a prominent and permanent record of those who make generous courtyard contributions. Donating a leaf--each created by students from Langley's Technical Education department-- is a wonderful way to contribute to the cost of the courtyard renovation and to leave a lasting Langley legacy that pays tribute to family, friends, teachers, businesses, pets, memories or milestones.
Interested in making an even bigger impact on the courtyard renovation project? Consider becoming a Courtyard Benefactor ($1,000+ donors) and your family or business name will be engraved on a plaque along with our most generous contributors, adjacent to the Legacy Tree. Courtyard Benefactors may also personalize up to six complimentary leaves for the Legacy Tree.
