A Note From The Langston Foundation:
I would like to thank all those parents who have initiated a monthly or annual donation during this first month back to school! It is so impressive to see the level of support from our parents, year after year and child after child. Your contribution will help to offset the funding shortfall that charter schools experience as compared to other public middle schools. It also helps us make necessary improvements like paving our gravel parking lot, sodding a playing field, replacing old picnic tables, and repurposing the school kitchen for our Take Out Lunch program.
Your help is making all the difference and I encourage all parents to do what you can to help make this the Langston Foundation’s BEST year ever as the school celebrates its 10th anniversary!
Director of Development
