Langley Leap

Update as of March 19, 2020

Seniors, as schools are closed until at least April 10, Langley Leap Application packets are no longer due by March 27.  As the situation is fluid, we will establish a new due date when we have a better of idea of when we will be returning to school.  While there is a possibility that Leap may need to be cancelled this year, it is far too early to make that determination.  For the time being, stay home and stay safe.

What is Langley Leap?

Eligible seniors will participate in a 5-day internship in local businesses, schools, and community service organizations in our area.  This experience will benefit students in numerous ways:  to help them explore a possible area of interest in college, to provide tangible experience putting academic interests in action in a non-academic setting, and, ideally, to provide an opportunity to give time and effort to organizations that need both.

Seniors will have the opportunity to participate in Langley Leap for the week of May 18-22 before Memorial Day Weekend.  Following Memorial Day, they will begin the final week of high school with mandatory graduation rehearsals and culminating events of their senior year before the following Monday’s graduation.

Please read the Langley Leap 2020 Document for more details.  Click here for the Langley Leap Application Package.  

All Government Teachers have been asked to post the Application Package to their Google Classroom / Blackboard sites and to let seniors know the packets are available.  Government teachers will be the point-of-contact for all Langley Leap paperwork/information distribution and collection.  Mr. Jackson emailed the Application document to all online Government students (via their fcpsschools gmail address) and informed them that he will be their in-building contact for all Langley Leap paperwork and information.

MySchoolBucks
Instructions

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) works with a third-party organization, MySchoolBucks,  https://www.myschoolbucks.com, to facilitate on-line payment of class dues/dinner/donations, testing fees, Saxon Scope, field trips, and other activity fees, as well as to electronically add funds to FCPS cafeteria balances.

Families need to enroll in MySchoolBucks once, and that account will be used for all children from all schools within Fairfax County. 

 

MySchoolBucks works with the county's student information database (SIS).  Once enrolled, families can add items to their “Cart” for students from all schools participating in “on-line payment” and make a single payment for all back-to-school payments made directly to FCPS.

 

NOTE: Payments to PTSA/PTOs, Boosters, and other organizations supporting Langley High School and other schools in FCPS are made via those respective organizations and NOT via MySchoolBucks.

What is ANGP?

ANGP stands for All Night Grad Party.  For 30 years, Langley seniors have enjoyed a safe, fun, party all-night after their graduation at Constitution Hall.  The ANGP is sponsored by the LHS PTSA and hosted by an ANGP chair and committee of Senior Parents.  Every LHS class provides volunteers to make the event a success.  Freshmen parents setup, Sophomore parents decorate, Junior parents clean-up, and over 100 Senior parents organize and chaperone/work the event. 

 

Seniors/graduates attend from 11:00PM on the night of graduation until 4:00AM the following morning.  The goal is to reduce the risk of teen drinking and drug use on graduation night, saving the lives of our teens and others in the community.  ANGP provides our graduates a fun, safe, alcohol and drug free evening to celebrate one last time with all of their classmates.  Historically, more than 90 percent of the graduating seniors attend.  

 

Missy Perkins (missyperkins72@gmail.com) is the ANGP Chair for LHS2020
