Information for Families from SEPTA

A Special Education PTA (SEPTA) is a PTA organization affiliated with the State and National PTA but specifically established to address the unique needs of special education, special needs, and disabled students and families.

Every month, SEPTA provides our community with a list of events to help special education families find the resources they need. All these opportunities are FREE unless noted. In most cases you must register if registration information is provided.

Message from the PTA President

The PTA welcomes you to the Langston Hughes Middle School Panther Community! The Langston Hughes Middle School PTA strives to include all, help create community, encourage student activism, and support our teachers, students, and families. 

As a member of the National PTA, Virginia PTA (VAPTA), and the Fairfax County Council PTA (FCCPTA), we have a shared mission: to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We also support the Fairfax County Special Education PTA (SEPTA). Every child. One voice. 

Reach out if you would like to talk about where you can fit it in. You can find me at We look forward to seeing you in the hallways of Hughes and helping our Panther POWER shine through!

Support LHMS PTA

Your time, talent, and treasure help us serve our community. 

Time: Attend our monthly PTA meetings, make a Costco run for teacher breakfast items, secure a speaker, or help deliver spirit wear.

Talent: Are you good with web design? Can you organize a PTA closet? Are you gifted in other languages to help our non-English speaking families? Do you have a knack for reviewing financials? Your talents can help expand the PTA’s skill set and reach.

Treasure: If you become a member or simply make a donation to the PTA, these funds help our programs thrive. Do you know of a local business that can contribute? Maybe your employer is generous to non-profit organizations. We graciously accept all help.
