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).Larchmont School Constitution
- Be Respectful - Treat others the way you want to be treated.
- Be Responsible - Always try to make good choices.
- Be An Active Learner - Challenge yourself to learn new things every day!
- Be Your Best - Always give 100% effort and never give up!
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.

May Is Lyme Disease Awareness Month
According to numbers through 2014 posted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 30 residents out of every 100,000 New Jersey residents are likely to develop symptoms severe enough to be confirmed as Lyme disease. In many cases, however, the symptoms appear and subside, so medical attention is not necessarily sought.
Here are some online resources to learn more about Lyme Disease, which can have debilitating results if left undetected or untreated:
