Langford Students Join the Continental Army!

Congratulations to our 4th Grade students for being featured on the Valley Forge- National Park Service Website! On a recent field study to Historic Brattonsville, students practiced army drills. Mrs. Johnson, fourth grade teacher, discovered that her students could be a part of history by "joining the numbers" in honor of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. To learn more about the project and see Langford's feature, visit the National Park Service's site.
