ANNOUNCEMENTS & NEWS
Langley Spring Musical: Guys and Dolls
Last month, the Saxon Stage would have been wowing the Langley community with its spring production, Guys and Dolls. To mark the event, the cast, crew and musicians gathered recently on Google Meet for a singalong of a few hits from the show and to share their memories.
Click here for a video tribute prepared by Saxon Stage Director Ms. Karasek of footage and photos taken during rehearsals before March, and here for a mini-program of the cast, crew and selected photos.
Langley Staff Appreciation
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4-8th), each member of Langley's staff (teachers, administration, cafeteria workers, custodians, etc.) received a $35 electronic gift card from Amazon.
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to Langley's Staff Appreciation!
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.
