LHMS students’ art will be on exhibit at the US Geological Survey during the month of April. Volunteers are needed to help transport and install the artwork on Monday, April 2. Please contact Martha Martinez at MMMartinez@fcps.edu if you can help her and our Art Teacher, Ms. Liu with this project.
It's so easy! You can find box tops on hundreds of participating products. Just clip them and drop them off in the front office. Twice a year, our school submits all its Box Tops and receives a check in return – and our school can use that money to buy anything that it needs. Learn more and find a complete list of participating products at BTFE.com.

We are eagerly anticipating two events for which we need help organizing. If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to volunteer, this is it!
There is a Basketball Game coming up on May 11 at Southlakes. Mr. Kyle and LHMS staff will organize the team and all events leading up to the game, making things very exciting for the children. We need someone from LHMS PTA to work with the PTA counterpart at Herndon MS on Concessions and Ticketing so that our school can receive part of the proceeds of this well-attended event. You’ll need to use a signupgenius and perhaps reach out to some scouts or high schoolers in need of community service hours to staff the event.
Langston Hughes PTA Panther Pride 5k is being held on Saturday, April 7 at 10am. The race will start and end at Hughes coursing through the pathways.
