Welcome back! The Langston Hughes PTA is here to support the school and its great staff. We hope all parents and guardians will join the PTA today so we can continue to support Langston Hughes in this very unique school year.
Parents and students, Teacher Appreciation week is May 4-8. What our Langston teachers would appreciate the most right now is to hear positive messages from their students who they are trying so hard to connect with right now. Please ask your student to upload a video to this FlipGrid: https://flipgrid.com/9af5cb67 .
FlipGrid is an FCPS approved tool that your student has most likely used in class before. There is an app they can download to easily record and post on their phone. They have to log in with their FCPS Google account to post. The deadline to submit a video is next Friday, May 1st.On May 4th, the FlipGrid will be shared with all the Langston teachers and they can go through and watch all the videos.
We hope you can participate in this easy way to show your support and appreciation of the teachers. THANK YOU for your help!
