We are excited to formally introduce your new SY20-21 PTO Board:
The SY19-20 Exec Board’s term has come to an end. It has been our honor to serve the Langley staff, families and PTO community. We will continue to support the new team in their transition, but they are now the decision makers and your new leaders. Want to reach out to them with questions? Email LangleyPTA101@gmail.com
The new team will send a note introducing themselves, sharing their priorities for the year and announcing the first PTO meeting of the new school year.

Hi Langley Families -
We hope you are staying safe and are excited for the upcoming school year. Teachers are back at school today for professional development & training. Class assignments and virtual orientation will be announced this week.
Reminder that technology pickup (student laptop or iPad) is this week (if you filled out the survey and said you needed one).
Grades 3, 4, 5: Wednesday, August 26 (12pm – 4pm)
Grades K, 1, 2: Friday, August 28 (12pm – 4pm)
Grades Pk3, Pk4: Monday, August 31 (12pm – 4pm)
*The goal is to be sure all kids who don't have access to technology get devices. If you have a device at home that your child can use, or in a position to purchase one, please do so.
All DCPS dates (when we have school, when school is closed etc...) are on our school calendar - https://www.langleyelementary.org/school-calendar.html
You can synchronize it to your personal device to save all the dates. We will add more as we have them.
1st day of K-5 is next Monday 8/31
1st day of school for PK3 & PK4 is Thursday 9/3

See below to view Chancellor Ferebee's latest message sent Friday, Aug. 21 to parents:
We are thrilled to welcome all new and returning Langley Tiger Families. We love our school family and want to make everyone feel welcome and prepared for the new school year.
Especially if your child is starting PreK-3 and attending school for the first time, we know firsthand that the transition to school is both exciting and hard. So, we thought we'd answer some of the questions that we had when we were joining the Langley community.
Most importantly, if you have any questions, no matter how big or small, email email@example.com. That address is monitored by our four PTO officers: the president, vice president, treasurer and secretary - these individuals know our community inside and out and can get you your answers, or direct you to the person who can. We are having virtual "meet ups" for new parents to connect and ask questions of current parents. Email us if you are interested in joining and we will send you the zoom link.
What makes Langley special?
Our vision is that every student feels loved, challenged, and prepared to positively influence society and thrive in life. We care about the whole child, and their emotional development is just as important to us as their academic growth, especially during the crucial early years when developing pro-social behavior is so critical. We aim to provide a safe, nurturing, loving home-away-from-home where the learning comes more easily, because the children's emotional needs are met first.
We are a community school! Parents, teachers, EVERYONE is very engaged. There are lots of opportunities to contribute and participate. You will not go long before every member of our community, from the principal to fellow parents know your child's name and what they're all about.
What is Conscious Discipline?
