ANNOUNCEMENTS & NEWS
Course Selections for 2020/21
Over the next month, each student will have a one-on-one meeting with their LHS counselor to register for classes. FCPS has detailed information on high school class sequencing here. It lists requirements for standard and advanced diplomas and shows potential class sequencing in all required subject areas: math, science, English and social studies.
On January 13th, Langley held its Curriculum Night. If you were unable to attend Curriculum Night, click here on the LHS website to view the teachers’ Curriculum Night presentations. You’ll find descriptions of class expectations, homework load and project requirements for general, honors, dual enrollment and AP courses in all the major subject areas, which will assist you in making informed decisions about course registration for the 2020-21 school year.
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.
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.
