Did you know we will be getting a food forest at Langley? Thank you to Landscaper, Lincoln Smith, and to our garden committee chair, Dawn Madura, for making this a reality! Read about food forests here in the Washington Post (Langley is mentioned).
Thank you to the parent volunteers who have offered to serve the Langley community as PTSA officers for the 2019-2020 school year. These leadership positions are crucial as the PTSA strives to make more gains in fundraising and community-building this year, so we can ensure our teachers, staff, administrators and children have the support they need to be successful.

We are excited to continue FoodPrints this year with a new FoodPrints teacher, Ms. Courtney Lucente, and assistant teacher, Ms. Allie Davis. Ms. Courtney has a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Johns Hopkins University and over a decade of teaching experience. FoodPrints combines her passion for education and love of food and cooking. Ms. Allie has a degree in Public Health from Dickinson College and comes from a family of teachers. She is excited to apply her knowledge of nutrition in the FoodPrints classroom. They both look forward to gardening, cooking, eating, and learning with Langley students this year!
All Langley students will participate in FoodPrints this year! We are planning monthly sessions for each class throughout the school year. FoodPrints integrates gardening, cooking, eating, and academic learning with the goal of growing healthy students and families. We help students learn about the natural world and how to enjoy eating healthy, whole foods.
We welcome parent volunteers! Parents (or other family members) help our classes run smoothly. Students are so happy to have their parents come in to help, and there is always something tasty to eat. Look for FoodPrints dates from your classroom teacher or reach out to Ms. Courtney for dates.
FoodPrints recipes will be served in the Langley lunchroom on Wednesdays. As part of the
Class to Café program in partnership with DCPS and with the support of Wellness in the Schools Chef Meagan, the Langley cafeteria team will be scratch-cooking and serving some of the same recipes that we are preparing in FoodPrints.
We hope your students will try these new recipes!
