Senior Car Parade
10:00am - Noon
The Class of 2020 parade was so fun and such a joy to watch. Our seniors and their families are the heroes of the day. They stepped up, decorated their cars, and figured out the path for a joyful afternoon. We saw genuine smiles on the faces of our Seniors who earned the right to be celebrated, and we did just that. We cannot thank Robin Svendsen enough for planning and holding such a wonderful event.
Let’s commemorate the event with a video.
Simply click on the link below and upload your photos and any video you took.
For those unable to participate, Sabrina Thomas created this collage of pictures taken in the Langley parking lot at the beginning of the parade.

If you have not received your refund, please contact Lisa Givens at email@example.com.

8. Mailing/Shipping items in General
Do NOT expect any organization (LHS, PTSA, FCPS, etc) to mail/ship any items to you or your Senior. All items will be made available for pickup at Langley High School at various times (which are constantly changing). Everyone understands this is not ideal and hopes to be as flexible/reasonable as possible. Please reach out to friends and neighbors to assist your family, as needed. Perhaps an enterprising Senior will create a business if there is a true need for shipping services.
