Freedom Shrine Dedication…We had a wonderful dedication ceremony on Wednesday for the Freedom Shrine given to us by the Exchange Club. We had several honored guests in attendance, including some WWII veterans and Vietnam veterans. Ms. Hamilton took lots and lots of pictures, which will soon be running on our TV screen in the lobby
Teacher Appreciation Week…All of us want to thank the Teacher Appreciation Committee and the parents who helped make this week so special for all of us at Langston. We always talk about the wonderful parents we have here, and this week proved that we really are blessed to work at Langston. The daily treats and presents, the breakfast every morning, and the delicious lunch today were all greatly appreciated.
Volunteer Appreciation Day…Next Friday, the 24th is volunteer appreciation day. Please stop by for a dessert treat made by the faculty and staff.

Parents of 8th graders:
The Class of 2013 Legacy Gift is growing by the day!!! We have surpassed $3,000, and with the largest graduating class in Langston history I know we can blow the top off that number. It is an opportunity to say Thank You to those at Langston who have helped ready your child for high school, and to continue this legacy of generosity to the next generation of students. The Class of 2012 Legacy Gift was close to $6000, and I know we can surpass that number with a larger class this year!!
With each $100 donation, your name will be entered into a drawing for some very cool gift certificates on Awards Day, May 31st! So the more you give, the more you could win! You won’t want to miss out on having your name in the hat!!
