Class of 2023
Welcome Seniors and Parents ...
Pay Your Class Activity Fee
The $35 fee, payable in MySchoolBucks, covers cost of Spirit Week activities planned by the student class officers, Senior t-shirt, class treat days, and picnics.
Due to the early Homecoming date, it is not possible to get HoCo t-shirts. We have arranged for Class Spirit t-shirts to be handed out in October, date TBD. The new fee pay by date is October 2nd. No t-shirt orders will be taken after this date. Note: there will be additional fees for graduation later in the year.
Our first Senior Class Parent Forum is Tuesday, October 4th, 9:30-11:00 am in the Langley Lecture Hall. There will be an overview of all Senior Year Activities. Our guest speaker will be Karen Burke, our new LHS Career and College Counselor. Ms. Burke will discuss and answer questions on the College Application Process. This event will be live streamed on our Facebook page and will be recorded and posted on our website.
ANGP Committee Members Needed
All Night Grad Party (ANGP) needs committee volunteers to help with internal/corporate fundraising, research food Ideas, plan games/entertainment, organize theme/decorations, arrange for security, and more. For those that don’t know, the ANGP is a party for our seniors the night of graduation. I know this seems like a long way off, but there is a lot that goes into planning and fundraising for a party that last all night! There will be a Zoom meeting Monday, October 3rd from 6:30-8pm.

Students with disabilities and English learners may be eligible for testing accommodations and/or supports for the SAT School Day; however, the College Board requires schools to submit formal requests in advance.

Send In Your Class of 2023 Photos!
We continue to collect Class of 2023 photos to be used for our Senior Video during graduation. Due to school being online for most of this year for most students, we will not have many opportunities to take photos. 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 is collecting the photos. Please use the following link to submit photos for Class of 2023 (submit at original size, not reduced): email@example.com
We are looking forward to working together with our faculty, parents and students for a wonderful junior year!
