PTO sponsors event to welcome new principal and assistant principals
Langston Chapel Middle School’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) invites parents and the community to attend a meet and greet event to welcome the school’s new administrative team on Tuesday, July 24, from 4:30 to 6 p.m., at the school. It’s an opportunity to hear remarks from the new principal and get to know LCMS’s new leaders before school begins on Aug. 1. Light refreshments will be served.
Dr. Eric Carlyle began his role as LCMS’s new principal on July 1. Joining him are two new assistant principals, Dr. Kareem Epps and Keith Wright. The new team is working this month to finalize faculty needs and ensure a smooth start to the school year.
“I look forward to the opportunity to meet with Langston Chapel staff, parents and community stakeholders to learn more about what they desire and expect from me and better understand what they want to present in their school,” Dr. Carlyle said.
