Welcome Saxon Families!

On behalf of Langley High School’s Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. The PTSA works closely with Langley administrators, teachers and staff to support the curriculum and provide programs that directly benefit our students. We could not do this without our Langley parents, who play a vital role in maintaining the tradition of excellence at our school.

Inspired by Principal Greer’s “4 C’s,” I encourage you to embrace the “8 -ate” during your student’s time at Langley:

Investigate what is happening at Langley HS by attending the PTSA meetings, officially known as the General Membership Meetings & Principal Coffees. Being present at these meetings will enable you to hear the latest news directly from Principal Greer, discuss issues important to our community, meet Langley staff members and have your questions answered. The PTSA meetings will be held in Langley’s Lecture Hall on Wednesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. on September 22, November 17, March 9 and May 4. The January 12 meeting will be held virtually. Look for additional information on the ptsalangley.org home page and in the Langley eNews.
 

Educate yourself by subscribing to our weekly PTSA newsletter, the Langley eNews. Published every Thursday afternoon, the eNews is bursting with student highlights, details about upcoming LHS activities and community events, and other vital information. It’s your weekly must-read! Click here to subscribe. Also, for an abundance of helpful links and materials, be sure to check out the PTSA website. Still can’t get enough? Follow us on Twitter @LangleyHS_PTSA.

 

Participate by volunteering for a one-and-done task this year. There are many ways to get involved and most do not require a substantial time commitment. Whether you are chaperoning a school dance, serving as a table leader for Ethics Day, distributing T-shirts or assisting with the vision and hearing screening, sharing your time enables the PTSA to support essential student events at Langley HS. Every Langley parent can do this! For volunteer opportunities, please click here.

Collaborate with other parent volunteers and head a PTSA committee. We rely on the expertise of our Langley parents! Whether your background is in management, law, healthcare, communications, sales, education, technology, the arts, or anything else, we need you! Share your acquired skills and diverse experiences with your fellow committee members to make Langley a better place. I guarantee that you will enjoy interacting with other outstanding volunteers as you work toward a common goal. For a list of current Langley PTSA committees and upcoming opportunities, please click here.

Donate to the PTSA to provide items and programs that the FCPS budget cannot furnish. Your PTSA membership and donation dollars are used to make purchases that support education (skeleton models, computer software, lab equipment, reference books and much more) and the arts (including new instruments, licensing rights and theater technology). Your contributions are enjoyed by all students as they congregate at the new tables in the school’s common areas or in the beautifully landscaped courtyard. Your generosity also funds substance abuse prevention and other programs for students and continuing education programs for teachers. Staff appreciation events and guest speakers for parent meetings are also possible because of your donations. Please remember, PTSA memberships need to be renewed annually, and are separate from class dues. Click here to renew your membership and, if possible, to donate. Thank you!

Appreciate our amazingly talented students! Immerse yourself in the Langley community by attending concerts and theater performances. Don your green and gold gear and cheer our Saxon sports teams onto victory! Learn about upcoming events by subscribing to LHS’s This Week at Langley and This Week in Athletics & Activities by clicking here.

Evaluate how things are going at Langley and Communicate your thoughts to me. How can the PTSA better support your teen and you? Is there a program that you think should be implemented? I welcome your questions, comments and suggestions, so please email them to me at ptsalangley@gmail.com.

 

I am excited to work with you to make this a fantastic school year!
