Have you and your child read your Langley Read choice?
The Langley Read
engages students, faculty, and their families in a communal intellectual experience. The Read provides a launching point for
discussion on social issues
and will be a conduit for
service learning opportunities
and greater civic engagement.
All Langley students were asked to select one of six books listed below, or a comparable nonfiction book that addresses service to others, and be prepared for
school-wide activities, classroom discussion, and a reflective writing exercise.
