Larchmont Elementary School

Dear Larchmont School Family,

Welcome Back! On behalf of the staff at Larchmont School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! We are looking forward to a productive year of learning, growing, and working together! As partners in learning, we share responsibility in student success. Therefore, we ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  1. Attends school daily and arrives on time.
  2. Completes homework.
  3. Reads daily.
  4. Talks with you about what takes place in school.

We strongly encourage consistent communication with your child’s teacher(s).  If you have questions or concerns about school, please contact us for clarification via email or phone. Similarly, if there is something that we need to know about your child, it is important to keep us informed

The Larchmont staff and I are privileged to be a part of this amazing school family! We want all of our students to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally; and we will achieve our goals by working together.  

Sincerely,

Dr. George E. Jackson,

Principal

Larchmont School's 2017-2018 Constitution
1. Be Kind and Respectful
2. Stay Safe
3. Always Try Your Best
4. Follow Directions

Low Cost Preschool Program Offered for 2018-2019 School Year

Mount Laurel Township Schools offer a low-cost preschool program for a limited number of four to five-year-old children each year. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2018-2019 school year. Classes will be held in our district elementary school buildings. These Preschool Inclusion classes will enroll preschoolers with disabilities along with their peers in order to provide public school opportunities according to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
 
 
A Path to Success 2030: Next Steps
The Community Survey soliciting opinion on a new three-year plan for the Mount Laurel Schools has closed, and the data collected is being analyzed. The final step in our Strategic Planning Initiative is to form committees to begin drafting the action plans for each of the eight categories identified as priorities in the public sessions held in December and January. They are: Students, Special Needs, Curriculum & Instruction, Community, Teachers & Staff, Full-Day Kindergarten, Facilities and Communication.
 
 
Attention, Parents: You may not use our online registration system to enroll your child for the 2018-2019 school year at this time. Any information input now for next year will be lost when we roll-over the system for next year. Please wait until you see notification here that 2018-2019 enrollment systems are ready for use!

Mount Laurel's Online Registration System for New Students

For your convenience, Mount Laurel School District utilizes an online service where you can complete necessary registration forms at your convenience. At this time, you may only use this system to register new students for the current school year. Do not register students for the 2018-2019 school year until the annual rollover takes place on March 12, 2018. To do so will lose all of your information and you will be required to repeat the process. The registration process is not complete until you bring the originals of the required documents to the school for verification.
 
 

3rd Grade Larchmont Leaders

  • Because so many of our parents commute long distances to work each day, we send these calls out beginning at 5 a.m., so that childcare arrangements can be made.
We will not call you
earlier than 5 a.m.
  • Make sure to check our Facebook and Twitter Pages, and our district and school web pages for updates.

Larchmont's Hopes and Dreams

As a Responsive Classroom School, at Larchmont, we engage students in reflecting upon their hopes and dreams. Students articulate and share their learning goals for the school year. These hopes and dreams are translated into classroom rules, which ultimately result in our school-wide rules (or School Constitution). 
 

2017-2018 Larchmont School Constitution

  • Be Kind & Respectful - Show care and kindness to everyone and everything in our school.
  • Stay Safe - Make safe and responsible decisions.
  • Always Try Your Best - Never give up and give 100% effort.
  • Follow Directions - Think before you act and do what is expected of you. 

Similar to how we created our School Constitution, we took the hopes and dreams from our staff, students and parents to create our school-wide vision for learning.
