Did You KnowAlex Pattakos Ph.D. from Psychology Today writes, “The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has put life into perspective, to be sure, and, importantly, has challenged us to identify and focus on what really matters. The basic prescriptions for better health and a more meaningful life have not changed much over time. We just need to follow the path the ancient Greeks have laid out for us!”

FCPS-issued Laptops

As we are now utilizing concurrent learning, please be sure that you are using your FCPS-issued laptop regularly. FCPS laptops are optimized to work on the school network, unlike devices you may be using at home. Additionally, many school programs and tests are required to be run on your FCPS laptop. If you have not been using your FCPS laptop regularly, please begin doing so now to prepare yourself to bring it every day you are in the building. If your laptop requires updates, drive to the nearest FCPS school and turn the laptop on in the parking lot. The laptop will connect to the FCPS network and download important updates. Please submit an IT request if you are having difficulty with your school laptops.

Langley Career Fair is back and better than ever! This year, our new Virtual Career Connections will allow students a convenient, virtual way to connect with local professionals, ask questions about their career paths and seek advice in finding possible summer internships or learn more about that future dream job! Students mark your calendars for this event on Blackboard Collaborate on Monday, April 12th from 10AM to 1PM. Our Career Connections student committee is still seeking professionals in arts, engineering, medical, government, sciences, and public relations to participate. If you’re interested in participating please email us at: or fill out this form. We look forward to hosting this exciting virtual event that all of our students can attend and enjoy! 

Substance Abuse Prevention

Drug Trends: Identifying Common Household Items and Drug Culture -- Apr 22

Click here to join a 12 pm or 7 pm session on the following dates:

The series is designed to help build awareness and arm parents with knowledge and tools to identify early signs of substance use, as well as discuss parents’ role in prevention and how to have effective conversations with teens about addiction. Ms. Rankin is a great resource for our students and parents. Questions? Contact her at or 703-287-2744.


Are your service hours up-to-date and approved?

Saxons:  log on to your x2Vol account through Naviance to make sure your service hours are up-to-date.  Service learning is not required by FCPS but strongly encouraged here at Langley. Students who earn 40 hours or more of service during their four years in high schools will receive the Service Learning Cord to be worn at graduation.  If you need assistance logging your hours, visit the LHS website at for instructions on tracking hours.  Please remember all service hours must be verified by an adult before they can be approved (LHS allows parents to verify hours during COVID). If you have any questions, please contact Mrs Shomaker in Student Services at

Action Requested: Help save trees and FCPS $$ on postage by opting in to receive “Paperless” Report Cards (that can be printed through ParentVUE)

Parents/Guardians may opt into “Go Paperless” for report cards by following the below instructions:

  • Parents/Guardians can take advantage of the paperless option, by logging into ParentVUE, then going to “My Account” and selecting "Go Paperless!". This is the only way to keep a paper report card from being generated for students at the secondary level. All parents who share the same address as the student must have a SIS ParentVUE account and must select the paperless option.


Buy a Leaf for the Courtyard

Buy a leaf -- or more -- for the Courtyard Legacy Tree fundraiser! We still have an empty Science Courtyard that needs landscaping.   

To fund the project, donate a leaf to the Langley Legacy Tree, the beautiful wall sculpture that is "growing" in the Langley Lobby, across from the Main Office.

The Legacy Tree is a permanent and prominent record of generous courtyard contributors. Choose your engraved message — leaves make wonderful tributes to students, teachers, family and friends!


Giving levels are copper leaf ($50), silver leaf ($100), gold leaf ($200) and acorn or bird ($500). To donate your tree leaves/acorns/birds, click on the Langley PTSA homepage and scroll down to the Legacy Tree article. Questions? Email

Are you tired of cooking and the cleanup? Want to support Langley Choir (and great local restaurants) while eating delicious food in the comfort and safety of home? Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 7th at 5:00 pm.  Amazing restaurant Lebanese Taverna (owned by beloved McLean and Arlington neighbors) will be doing an exclusive online order and delivery Langley Choir -- or anyone who wants to support it!  Ordering is available below through this exclusive  “Langley Choir Order Link”. Lebanese Taverna will donate 15% of EVERY order to Langley Choir! Contactless pickup will be at Langley High School at 5:00 pm.  If we get a lot of orders, we will stagger pickup times. 


1. Yes, feel free to share this link with friends (and yes, you can put on your neighborhood list serv if so inclined, we’d appreciate it) who are happy to come over and pick up on April 7th at 5:00 pm. 

2. Yes, you can "carpool" dinner and pick up more than one family's dinner.  Everything is paid for in advance, so you just have to give the names you're picking up.

3.  No, the full Lebanese Taverna menu isn't available, just the favorites that travel well!

Any other questions can be sent directly to the Lebanese Taverna team at or call 703-841-1503. I hope you are able to enjoy their delicious food and support Langley Choir and this family-owned, local business, that began in our area over 35 years ago.  You might recognize just a couple of the family at pickup!
