Photos for the Class of 2023 Slide show!

It may seem like a long way off, but our students’ graduation will come sooner than you can imagine.  One of the most memorable moments of Senior Week (the week leading up to graduation) is the Class Video that is viewed at the Senior Breakfast attended by seniors and their families. 

We need your help! 

 

We can’t be everywhere.  However, YOU are always at the memorable moments of your child’s life and probably with a camera in hand!  Please share those great shots with us.  Our goal is to have every student and activity represented in our Senior Class Video!  

Include only pictures of the Class of 2023 and only Langley High School events, i.e. sports, concerts, dances, theater, treat days, Saxon Time, and field trips.

A designated email has been established for photos and video.  Please email your photos and video to lhs2023photos@gmail.com  or share them on our Instagram account: lhs2023photos/

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is MySchoolBucks?

It is a website used by FCPS and school systems nationwide to collect payments online for school meals, after-school programs, athletic fees, and more.  With MySchoolBucks, parents can easily add money to their student's accounts, check balances and recent purchases, and set up notifications for upcoming payments all conveniently online.

Why Are There Annual Class Dues?

The dues requested each of the four years at Langley are used to cover costs not paid for by Fairfax County. These include annual costs, such as the Homecoming T-shirts, class treats (doughnuts distributed a few times a year), class parent coffees, and the information packets handed out at the beginning of the year. But the larger and more important costs come during Junior and Senior years and include some prom costs and Senior events, including the class field trips (e.g., Hershey Park), senior picnic, Ethics Day, Senior video, Senior breakfast, and almost $40,000 in graduation costs, from caps & gowns to the venue itself, among numerous other costs.  By collecting Class Dues each year, and through various fundraising events, we are able to significantly lessen the cost to each family of these activities.  

 

What are the school hours?

Classes begin promptly at 8:10AM and end at 2:55PM.  Click here for the Langley bell schedule.

 

What classes does my student have on which days? 

Click here for the Green/Gold Day Calendar.

On “Green Days”, students attend classes for periods 1, 3, 5,7.

On “Gold Days”, students attend classes for periods 2, 3, 4, 6

Saxon Time is held on all days with a full school day at the same time: 9:47 – 10:17AM.

When will the directory be available?

Directories are distributed in November. Many parents find the mobile app the most useful way to access directory information. You can search by student or parent names and easily access address and phone numbers. Download the app to your phone today:  https://www.atozdirectories.com/login/. Use your login information provided/created when you updated your student’s information. Questions? Contact: langleydirectory@gmail.com

What is ANGP?

ANGP stands for All Night Grad Party. For 30 years, Langley Seniors have enjoyed a safe, fun all-night party 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 11:00 PM on the night of graduation until 4:00 AM 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.
