Langston Art Teacher Presents Black Glue and You
11/02/2018
Langston Art Teacher Mrs. Debbie Shelman was invited to present “Black Glue and You” at the Arkansas Art Educators Fall Conference. Black Glue is a glossy art material that creates a unique effect when mixed with bright colors because it separates shapes and images to add dimension. Art educators were provided with examples of black glue artwork completed by HSSD Langston students and received handouts, resources, website links, and more for choosing age appropriate projects for working with the material.

Principal's Message


Ellars

Greetings Langston Family
Welcome back to a great new year. We are very excited for all the things getting ready to happen here at  Langston this year. We are moving forward with finalizing a new magnet theme to launch in the 2019-2020 school year. We will announce that theme later in the year. For now, we will be embracing a public service and environmental focus as we build our lessons and instruction. Our first focus area is Community Awareness.  Students will be learning about many of the components that define a community. In September, we will host a parent event for the students to demonstrate their collective understanding of community. 

 
We are also studying the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Kids. This is a great leadership and personal growth model with activities for all grade levels. We will be starting with the first habit, “Be Proactive.”  
 
Langston is in a recess pilot program this year with the state department. Students will have an additional 30 minutes of recess each day and students and teachers already love this. 
 
We are thrilled with the progress of our new building and we are looking forward to its completion in the spring of 2019. This poses some challenges with dropping off and picking up students and we have made some  adjustments that we think will improve our traffic flow. We will flip our early bus and car locations in the  afternoon only.  
 
Please like our Facebook page. We are going to work hard this year to post information about upcoming events and happenings in and around Langston. 
 
As always, my office is open if you have any questions or concerns. Go TROJANS!  
 
Thank you!        Eileen Ellars, Principal
