Did You Know...

Matt James, Ph.D from Psychology Today writes, Many of us know that forgiveness is a good thing. It frees us from bitterness and anger, two difficult emotions that can disrupt our physical health and hold us back. Often we’re consistent about forgiving others, but forgiving ourselves is more difficult. Here is the article  to help understanding why self-forgiveness can be difficult.


Drop Everything and Read      

Drop Everything and Read On March 10 during Langley Links!                                       

On Thursday, March 10, the whole school will participate in “Drop Everything And Read” (also known as DEAR) during Langley Links. The Langley HS community (adults and students) will turn off our screens and read for 25 minutes. Please talk with your child about what they plan to read, and remind them to bring something to read on March 10 – a magazine, newspaper, novel, graphic novel, even a school text.

FCPS Superintendent Dr. Braband Q & A 

March 9, 2022 @ 7:00 - FCPS Superintendent Dr. Brabrand Q&A with Fairfax County Students.  This is an opportunity for our students to ask question of the Superintendent. Students rarely get an opportunity to ask questions of general education policy and their perspectives can be both interesting and valuable.  Event is scheduled to be in-person at the McLean Community Center.  Registration is not required. Please see the McLean Community Center website for the latest Covid policy. 

Career Pathways Study

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has partnered with FourPoint Education Partners, a national consultancy based in Maryland, to assess our current pathway elective courses and career pathway programs. Our middle and high school students will be receiving an email inviting them to participate in a brief survey.  The email will be sent to their school email address and will be coming from Naviance with a subject titled: Student Survey Pathways Study.  Participation in the survey is optional.  Students will have the opportunity to complete this survey during 3rd period on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.

In addition, our middle and high school parents will have an opportunity to provide feedback.  More information will follow soon.

If you have any questions, please contact Jim Robertson at
