Langley's Legacy Tree is Growing! 

Drop by Langley's lobby, across from the main office, to see the start of the Legacy Tree. While the tree is still a work in progress, it already looks beautiful! Thanks to all of the generous Legacy Tree donors who have made the renovation of the first of Langley's three courtyards possible.  


We still have two more courtyards to renovate this spring. If you haven't already done so, consider helping to "grow" the Legacy Tree by donating a leaf (copper $50, silver $100, gold $200) or bird or acorn ($500). You choose the engraved message. The Legacy Tree will be permanent, prominent record of courtyard contributors and a lasting legacy for Langley and your family. Leaves also make great tributes to teachers, friends, coaches, and grads!

Eating disorders are behaviors that can lead to serious health problems. These behaviors can begin as a child, and affect both girls and boys. When discovered early, eating disorders are treatable. In 2013, Virginia passed a law requiring every school system provide information to parents annually about eating disorders. This information is given to parents of students in the fifth through twelfth grades.

It is important to note that eating disorders are not identified based on weight changes as much as behaviors and attitudes. Signs of eating disorders may differ between males and females and in different age groups. Often, a young person may not recognize the signs that they might have an eating disorder. Parents/guardians and family members are in a position to notice behaviors that cause concern. It is important that a child with an eating disorder be treated early by someone who understands this type of care.

After reviewing the Eating Disorders Fact Sheet, if you think your child may be showing signs of a possible eating disorder, please contact your doctor, school nurse, or one of the resources listed below.

Additional resources may be found at:

Greetings Saxons,

 

As we prepare for the weekend, the rain has finally ended and the sun is again shining in Saxon Country. One of the many things I love about Langley is regardless of the weather, there is always a sense of positivity and joy in the halls of our school. Thank you for helping to make this such a special place for our students, staff and community.

 

Before we begin this week’s celebration, I have a couple of items to share with you.

 

Teachers have shared there is ongoing use of cell phones by students during instructional time. To help our kids make different choices, as part of our daily announcements I have reminded students that cell phones may only be used during instructional time with teacher permission. We will continue the daily reminders but students who violate the policy may be assigned to after school detention. Our teachers strive to provide outstanding lessons. In order for students to take full advantage, they must to be engaged in class. I thank you in advance for your support of our learning community.

 

This week, I have had both a student driver and a parent reach out to me regarding Kiss and Ride protocol. Parents/guardians using Kiss and Ride, please remember the line starts in the far right lane of the parking lot. To maintain student safety, please do not pull into parking spaces to drop off or pick up your student.  I greatly appreciate your adherence with this protocol.

 

Now that we’ve taken care of housekeeping items, let’s get this week’s Saxon Party started….

 

February 3-February 7 is National School Counseling week. We recognize and thank our fantastic school counselors for their endless support and dedication to our students. We appreciate the time and effort they put in to getting to know each of our students by name and need.

 

Thank you to our amazing PTSA for the superb staff luncheon held today. This definitely was a wonderful way to kick of the weekend in Saxon Country. The ongoing support of our parents is so appreciated.

 

Congratulations to our Model UN on earning First Place Best Large Delegation at Ivy League Model United Nations Conference held at the University of Pennsylvania.

 

 

Hats off to Langley’s Science Bowl team for their 2nd place finish in the state competition.

 

 

 

Congratulations to Langley Boys’ Swim and Dive on their undefeated season and winning the

Liberty District championship!

 

 

Claire Vroom- Liberty District Dive champion! Way to go, Claire!

 

Hannah Richardson- Liberty District Pole Vault Champion! We are so proud of you, Hannah!

 

Shout Outs!!

 

Job well done, Boys’ 4x200m relay team for your Liberty District win!

We wish our wrestling team good luck tomorrow in tomorrow’s district tournament!

 

Good luck to our Quiz Bowl team as they will compete in the It’s Academic semi-final

I wish each of you a fantastic weekend.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 28

-Staff Development Day – Student Holiday

 

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29

-*Saxon Service, Saxon Time

-Choral Pyramid Concert @ McLean Bible Church, 7:00 p.m.

Did you know…Psychology Today recently published an article on journaling. The article states “Journaling is all about dumping that stuff floating around in your head and then being able to walk away from it. “  Here is the article on  8 different journaling techniques https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/202001/discover-8-journaling-techniques-better-mental-health 

*The next Saxon Service is Wednesday, January 29th during Saxon Time.  Fifteen different activities will be available to students to support various service organizations.  Student can make sandwiches, write notes of thanks and support, iron, braid, knit, fold origami, sort crayons, make blankets and many other activities—there is something for every interest.

Why should students participate in Saxon Service?  Hands on activities and service to others reduces stress. Repetitive actions requiring little mental challenge can be meditative (Origami, coloring, ironing, braiding, knitting, sorting).  Service to others encourages thinking beyond yourself and caring for others. Saxon Service creates sense of community and fosters relationships outside “usual” friend groups. Students who engage in at least 40 hours of service during high school are eligible to earn a Service Cord to be worn at graduation--the Service Cord is the ONLY graduation cord available that is not dependent on grades, skills, or ability, but simply on a commitment to service.

Laugh more, stress less in the New Year! The Capitol Steps are just the ticket for hilarious, bipartisan lampooning from DC’s own political satire group. They will perform live at LHS on Sun, Feb 23. Tickets are $37 and proceeds benefit this year's All-Night Grad Party (ANGP) .

Greetings Saxons,

 

The first half of the school year has been an amazing one in Saxon Country. Our field hockey team won their first VHSL state title. Our golf team won its fourth straight VHSL state title. The swim and dive team remains undefeated in the current season. Model UN and Science Olympiad continue to have exceptionally strong showings in their competitions. Congratulations to these students as well as the many more who are finding ways to Connect and Celebrate through participation in school activities. I encourage each of our students to find their niche at Langley through involvement in Saxon Service, clubs, sports, and the arts.

 

As you are aware, we recently played McLean High School in a double-header basketball game. I commend, and thank, our students for the positive behavior displayed during the event. Their actions exemplified all that makes Langley such a great school! Not only did we cheer with class but we won with class as well. Congratulations to both of our basketball teams as they dominated the court in both contests.  

 

With our students being so busy, there are many highlights in this week’s message. Congratulations to our Scholastic Bowl team for their impressive win on It’s Academic which recently aired. They will compete in the show’s semi-final round on February 8. We wish them luck! The Langley Forensics team earned Second Place in the Regional Forensics tournament. We are proud of the club participants and cheer for them as they move on to the next round of competition.

 

 

Hats off to our Model UN for their Best Large Team Delegation award earned at the Chantilly Model UN

conference. This is the equivalent to First Place!

 

 

 

A huge shout out to our Science Olympiad team on their participation in the Duke University Invitational.

They competed with high schools from North Carolina to New York. They placed Fourth overall in the

competition.

 

At this time, we congratulate our seniors in the following sports.

 

Wrestling

 

Golf

 

Swim & Dive

 

As you can see, students are busy doing great things. I hope this four day weekend will provide them an

opportunity to rest and recharge.

 

Thanks to each of you for your ongoing support of Langley and our students. I wish each of you a fantastic

weekend.

Dear Langley High School families,

As we are approaching the conclusion of the Rise Against Hunger fundraising campaign, I would like to thank those of you who have contributed. If you have yet to make a donation, it’s not too late. As you are aware, this is a pyramid wide fundraiser. All proceeds go toward the purchase of food packs for the needy.

Contributions may be submitted until midnight on Friday, January 24, 2020. Please follow the directions listed below to make a donation. Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy cause.

Last year’s Rise Against Hunger event was a huge success and provided a wonderful service learning opportunity for children and adults of all ages.  Families in the Langley Pyramid are joining together to help children in need.  In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, the elementary, middle and high schools in the Pyramid are coming together on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at Colvin Run Elementary School to prepare 100,000 meals for schools and orphanages around the world.

Highlights of Rise Against Hunger’s Mission

  • Nourish Lives- ensure the meals distributed by those partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.
  • Respond to Emergencies- food distribution in response crises–both natural and man-made.
  • Empower Communities- bolster agricultural production and incomes through programs promoting improved agricultural methods, business skills, and market access

A Langley High School family who attended the event shared:

"The statistics are alarming. It helps my children to realize just how lucky they are. It made them feel good that at their age, they too, can make an impact and difference in other people's lives.”

Help raise money for the event: Donations end January 24th

We can only package the number of meals we purchase, so please donate to help us reach our 100,000 meals goal by January 24th.

-*Saxon Service, Saxon Time

-Choral Pyramid Concert @ McLean Bible Church, 7:00 p.m.

Did you know…from 1995 to 1997 Kaiser Permanente conducted a study by collected data on adverse childhood experience (ACE Study).  Over 17,000 Health Maintenance Organization members from Southern California receiving physical exams completed confidential surveys regarding their childhood experiences and current health status and behaviors.  The CDC and Kaiser joined forces and continue to use outcomes of the ACE Study to educate doctors, communities, and mental health provider on the long term effects of negative childhood experiences. 

Here is more information on the ACE Study - https://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/childabuseandneglect/acestudy/index.html

*The next Saxon Service is Wednesday, January 29th during Saxon Time.   Fifteen different activities will be available to students to support various service organizations.  Student can make sandwiches, write notes of thanks and support, iron, braid, knit, fold origami, sort crayons, make blankets and many other activities—there is something for every interest.

Why should students participate in Saxon Service?  Hands on activities and service to others reduces stress. Repetitive actions requiring little mental challenge can be meditative (Origami, coloring, ironing, braiding, knitting, sorting).  Service to others encourages thinking beyond yourself and caring for others. Saxon Service creates sense of community and fosters relationships outside “usual” friend groups. Students who engage in at least 40 hours of service during high school are eligible to earn a Service Cord to be worn at graduation--the Service Cord is the ONLY graduation cord available that is not dependent on grades, skills, or ability, but simply on a commitment to service.

Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Jan202020, marks the 25th anniversary of the day of service that celebrates the Civil Rights leader's life and legacy.

Laugh more, stress less in the New Year! The Capitol Steps are just the ticket for hilarious, bipartisan lampooning from DC’s own political satire group. They will perform live at LHS on Sun, Feb 23. Tickets are $37 and proceeds benefit this year's All-Night Grad Party (ANGP) . Order online ,  or print this order form  and mail it with your payment to the address on the form. Tickets will be held at will-call the night of the performance. For more info, check the ANGP website  or contact Annette Bellino at annette.bellino@verizon.net .

Happy New Year Saxons,

 

I hope your break provided an opportunity for rejuvenation and reconnection with family and friends. 2020 has gotten off to phenomenal start in Saxon Country. Our students returned well-rested and ready to finish second quarter on a high note. Wednesday’s snow day was an unexpected gift for students and staff alike.

 

I look forward to seeing everyone at this evening’s basketball double-header against the McLean Highlanders. I have reminded our students that we keep it classy here in Saxon Country so they should come ready to cheer for our team and to show positive Saxon spirit.

 

Be sure to tune in tomorrow at 10:30 to It’s Academic on NBC4. Our students competed in November and the contest will air on Saturday. We are proud of our It’s Academic team. They truly are a gifted group of young people.

 

This weekend will be lovely with highs in the 60’s. I hope you will be able to find time to get out to enjoy the beautiful weather.

 

Hail Saxons!

Rise Against Hunger

GovDelivery 1 month 1 week ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Dear Langley High School families,

We wanted to encourage you to sign up to volunteer and donate for our annual Langley Pyramid Rise Against Hunger event!   This is a wonderful Langley pyramid tradition, and we want to make sure our families have the opportunity to participate.  Each school has a unique sign-up page, so if you have children in multiple schools, please pick the individual schools in which your children attend and sign them up to volunteer.  Elementary-age students must have an adult sign up as well.  Click here to sign up to volunteer.

Last year’s Rise Against Hunger event was a huge success and provided a wonderful service learning opportunity for children and adults of all ages.  Families in the Langley Pyramid are joining together to help children in need.  In partnership with Rise Against Hunger, the elementary, middle and high schools in the Pyramid are coming together on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at Colvin Run Elementary School to prepare 100,000 meals for schools and orphanages around the world.

Highlights of Rise Against Hunger’s Mission

  • Nourish Lives- ensure the meals distributed by those partners are used as a tool to change lives by promoting education, improving students’ health and nutrition, addressing gender inequalities, stimulating economic growth and fighting child labor.
  • Respond to Emergencies- food distribution in response crises–both natural and man-made.
  • Empower Communities- bolster agricultural production and incomes through programs promoting improved agricultural methods, business skills, and market access

A Langley High School family who attended the event shared:

"The statistics are alarming. It helps my children to realize just how lucky they are. It made them feel good that at their age, they too, can make an impact and difference in other people's lives.”

Help raise money for the event: Donations end January 24th

We can only package the number of meals we purchase, so please donate to help us reach our 100,000 meals goal by January 24th. Each meal costs only 34 cents to make.  For just $5, you can donate nearly 15 meals; $15 will make nearly 50 meals and $50 will make nearly 150 meals.  Make your tax-deductible donation today at http://events.stophungernow.org/LangleyPyramid2020. In order to reach our goal of 100,000 meals, the Langley Pyramid needs to raise $34,000.  If your company makes matching contributions, please consider having them join you in making a tax-deductible donation today at: http://events.stophungernow.org/LangleyPyramid2020 and help us Rise Against Hunger

Each student is encouraged to donate loose change or money that they earn and wish to donate to Rise Against Hunger.  Students will have the opportunity to bring in any money they would like to donate in January 2020.  Langley High School parents and families are also encouraged to donate to help us reach our Langley pyramid goal.  Our goal will be reached if every child donated $5.00.

This is from the Great Falls Citizens Association regarding CVS adding a medication drop box. This is wonderful news to help combat the opioid epidemic.  The majority of opiate addicts start with pills whether they were prescribed or left over from a family members procedure. Please do not save medications!

”Many residents have been alerted to the problem of drugs in our communities. Some get addicted to drugs due to stress, anxiety, or treatment for pain.  Some residents have unused drugs in our homes after a treatment period ends.  With this in mind and with concern for our community, the Great Falls Village CVS store has recently installed a drop box for left over medicines that might be of interest to our young people or visitors over the holidays. We understand that the Great Falls Village CVS may be the only CVS in the USA to have installed such a box. It is available during business hours at CVS.  Residents can thank Jordan, Pharmacist at CVS for arranging for this drop box.”

Greetings Saxon Families,

 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year here at Langley High School. With the many concerts and celebrations which have occurred this month, December has been a whirlwind filled with enthusiasm and joy. During this season of good will and giving, I would like to take time to express gratitude to each of you. I count it a blessing to lead the Langley High School community. The ongoing engagement, encouragement, and support I receive from students, staff and families make me a very fortunate principal. As we look to begin a new school year, I remain committed to ensuring an environment where every student and staff member feels valued, appreciated and welcome.

 

Now, here are the latest highlights from Saxon Country….

 

Saxon Stage’s Romeo and Juliet was a huge hit. Teacher Jay O’Rourke, who was in the cast, was a crowd favorite.

Congratulations to the cast and crew on a fantastic production.

 

Choir, band and orchestra all had wonderful concerts. The annual choral Renaissance Feaste provided

An evening filled, with beautiful music, much merriment and a delightful meal.

 

During Saxon Service, our students gave back to our community.

 

2019 is going out with a bang as our students celebrated the season with the Winter Assembly. Thanks

To our choir, orchestra and band students who shared songs of the season.

Festive holiday wear was seen throughout the building.

Students put the 4 C’s into action by wearing “Spread Holiday Greer” shirts. As I shared with the

students, I am touched by their thoughtfulness.

During this holiday season, may you have time to care, connect and celebrate with family and friends.

May the new year bless you with health, happiness and much prosperity.

 

Fondly,

Kimberly Greer
