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

A Path to Success 2030
Where do we go from here?
The December 7 session of our Strategic Planning Initiative brought more than 80 participants out to begin laying the framework for our action plan. In eight areas identified by consensus during the first two sessions, those present suggested first steps to implement many of the items that had been recommended. Minutes from the December 7 session will be posted below shortly.
In January, an invitation will go out to all community members to participate in a survey, for those who were unable to attend. Following responses to the survey, committees will be formed to actually write the three-year strategic plan. anyone interested in serving on the plan committee is asked to contact Superintendent George J. Rafferty. The committee will hold three meetings, each
limited to 90-minutes.
 
Minutes from our November 2 and November 30 Meetings
Our November 2 meeting focused on Points of Pride - those things participants were most proud of within the Mount Laurel Schools. More than 130 community members worked in 30 small groups to identify personal points of pride first, and then discussed those items within the group to come to consensus on items they had identified in common.
The theme for the November 30 meeting was "Expectations for the Future," those things that participants would like to see if they looked back three years from now in our schools. Individuals once again noted their ideas first, and then shared them with the group to come to a small numbers of consensus items everyone agreed upon. Minutes reflect both the Consensus Items and the individual responses.
Here are the complete minutes from the November 30 Expectations for the Future Meeting.

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.
