Message from the Principal


Greetings Saxons,

Langley is abuzz with all things great. The spirit week put pep in our steps over the past few days. Many students are making plans to attend tomorrow evening’s Snowball Dance sponsored by our Leadership Class. Life is really good in Saxon Country!

Thanks to photography student Delta D. for sharing pictures from this week’s Spirit Days!

Congratulations to girls’ basketball senior players!

We salute our senior dancers!


The Langley Girls Winter Track team won the District Indoor Track Championships overall with a score of 145 (besting the next closest competitor by over 50 points)!! The girls 4x800m team kicked off the meet with an impressive win and shattered the nine year old meet record along the way! After that event, the girls set the track ablaze with top three finishes in every event from the 55 meter dash through the 3200 meter run! I’ve included a photo of the Champions celebrating their win with the District banner and trophy.
