So, when you see an opportunity please remember to snap a pic! We need your help to ensure all students and all aspects of life at Langley are represented (sports, performing arts, social, academic, etc.). Group shots of Class of 2023 students engaging in Langley activities are preferred. Be creative… remember, these photos will be your student’s Langley memories! Please identify the students in the pictures when submitting. Ali Simanson will be collecting the photos. Please use the following link to submit photos for Class of 2023 (submit at original size, not reduced): firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking forward to working together with our faculty, parents and students for a wonderful sophomore year!

Our November 10th Sophomore Parent Forum has been cancelled.
Please attend the following virtual PTSA presentation this coming week instead.
The PTSA is hosting a virtual presentation, Parenting During the Pandemic, on Thursday, Nov. 12 from 12-1 pm to help Langley parents help their kids who are struggling with mental health during the pandemic.
McLean-based psychotherapist Jennifer Weaver will speak, offering insights into the range of heightened challenges including depression, loneliness, lack of motivation, anxiety or lack of impulse control that teens may be facing during the pandemic. She'll explain why teens may be keeping these feelings to themselves, and how parents can best support them during this time. Click here to join the presentation on November 12.
