Message from the Principal

GovDelivery 1 week 6 days ago

August 7, 2019

Greeting Saxon Families,

It’s hard to believe that we are in the final weeks of summer vacation. I hope the break has provided each of you an opportunity to rest, rejuvenate and reconnect with family and friends. As you are enjoying the waning summer days, please know the staff here at Langley is busy preparing the building to welcome students and teachers later in the month.

Our custodial team has been busy beautifying the building and grounds. The floors are gleaming and each space has been thoroughly refreshed. I thank them for their hard work over the summer and the pride they take in providing our students and staff a clean learning environment.

As you are aware, this school year, each FCPS high school student will be issued a laptop. The distribution days and times may be accessed through the link below. Students must report to the building to pick up their own laptops. Students must report to the Lecture Hall with a photo ID for laptop distribution. Once the laptop is received, approximately 30 minutes will need to be allotted for students to complete the laptop check out process. Please enter the building through Entrance #14.

Laptop Distribution Information

Opening of School

I am looking forward to a fantastic school year. I hope to see you at our various school events. Should the need ever arise, please do not hesitate to reach out to school staff members or me for assistance. We are here to support our students and families.

Enjoy the remaining days of summer. Go Saxons!

                                                                                                                        

Fondly,

 

Kim

FCPSOn Update

GovDelivery 2 months 1 week ago

Dear Parent or Guardian,

 

As the 2018-19 school year has ended, we are already busy preparing for your student’s return in August and the launch of FCPSOn, a digital transformation initiative that provides students with access to one device to use for learning. Please know that FCPSOn will not replace teachers. On the contrary, FCPSOn provides ongoing, dynamic professional learning for teachers that will result in more purposeful and collaborative learning experience for your student.

 

As we plan for next year, I’d like to share a few details:

  • General information about FCPSOn, including Frequently Asked Questions can be found can be found on FCPS’ website.
  • Our Technology Team is working on the distribution schedule for student devices. Students will be notified of their pick-up times through their fcpsschools.net accounts. For those who will be on vacation during the pick-up times, other times will be made available prior to school starting.
  • We would like all students to have devices in hand by the first day of school, if possible. Students and families will receive more information about device pick-up times.
  • Save The Dates for FCPSOn Pick-Up:
    • FCPSOn 9th grade: August 13,  August 22
    • FCPSOn 10th grade: August 12, August 20
    • FCPSOn 11th grade: August 14, August 21
    • FCPSOn 12th grade: August 16, August 23
  • Please stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks. In the interim, feel free to contact me with any questions.

 

Fondly,

 

Kim

Did you know…. The end of the school year is rapidly approaching. How do you find the balance between much needed downtime and much needed structure? Here are 5 summer activities that will make everyone in the family happy: https://yourteenmag.com/stuff-we-love/teenager-summer/summer-activities-for-teens

Summer Reading Fun

Summer should be a time to rest and recharge for the next school year. This LibGuide doesn't contain assignments or required reading but rather a group of places to find books, reading lists, challenges and recommendations. Pick up a challenge and see how many books you can read that fit it. Look through lists and find something new you never thought about reading. Visit libraries, museums and bookstores for events. Check out our staff picks, read one and talk with a staff person when you return!  Reading can be a great way to relax and enjoy the summer. Whether you are sitting by the pool or traveling or using a print book, ebook or audiobook, a book can always accompany you. Have a wonderful summer!

 

https://langleyhs-fcps.libguides.com/c.php?g=932130.

Parking hang tag applications for the 19-20 school year will be available in the main office on Monday, May 20 and will be accepted thru Monday, June 7, 3:30 PM.  All applications must include a copy of the student’s driver’s license.

All completed/signed applications will be limited to rising seniors, applications for rising juniors will not be accepted at this time.  In the fall, if spaces are available for limited junior parking, information for a lottery will be made available with applications accepted at that time.

Summer Reading Fun

Summer should be a time to rest and recharge for the next school year. This LibGuide doesn't contain assignments or required reading but rather a group of places to find books, reading lists, challenges and recommendations. Pick up a challenge and see how many books you can read that fit it. Look through lists and find something new you never thought about reading. Visit libraries, museums and bookstores for events. Check out our staff picks, read one and talk with a staff person when you return!  Reading can be a great way to relax and enjoy the summer. Whether you are sitting by the pool or traveling or using a print book, ebook or audiobook, a book can always accompany you. Have a wonderful summer!

The Legacy Tree will soon be up in Langley's front entrance (across from the office) for all to enjoy for years to come.

Prom Details

Date: Saturday, May 18, 2019

Time: 8:00pm - 11:00pm

Cost: $80

Theme: "A Night in Black and White...Old Hollywood at the Mellon”

Location: The Mellon Auditorium, 1301 Constitution Ave NW, Washington DC

 

Andrew Mellon Auditorium:

The historic Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium stands tall as one of the three buildings in the Federal Triangle. It was designed by architect Arthur Brown, Jr. and erected in the early 1930s. The auditorium’s seven stories of white-washed limestone, legendary columns, and red terra-cotta roof tiles make it the highlight of the Triangle.  Limestone-finished walls and piers define the interior space and the lobby’s marble floor is laid in rectilinear patterns of gold, pink, and dark red marble. At the heart of the building is the spectacular auditorium standing more than 60 feet in height and embellished with limestone pilasters, gilded relief carvings, and polished oak. Colossal luminaries, made of brass and burnished aluminum, are suspended from the ceiling. Encompassing almost six acres and stretching across 1,000 feet of prime Constitution Avenue space, this building certainly makes a statement. 

We are so excited to hold our Langley prom in this extraordinary building!  

For more information on the history, please visit: https://mellonauditorium.com/history/.

The Perfect Graduation Gift! 

 

Langley's Tech Ed department is beginning work on the Legacy Tree--- a beautiful work of art that's helping us raise funds for our courtyard renovation fundraiser. The plan is to have the tree up in Langley's lobby (across from the office) for all to enjoy before the end of the school year. Donating a leaf (copper $50, silver $100, gold $200) or bird or acorn ($500) to the Legacy Tree engraved with your family or student's name is a great way to leave your mark on Langley. The Legacy Tree will be permanent, prominent record of generous courtyard contributors and a lasting legacy for Langley and your family. Leaves also make great tributes to teachers, teams/activities, and friends!

To order your leaf -- or leaves! -- visit the ptsa website, ptsalangley.org -- and click on the green tab that says "Make a Donation."
