Larchmont Elementary School

Mr. George E. Jackson

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On behalf of the staff at Larchmont School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2015-16 school year! We are looking forward to a productive year of learning, growing, and working together to ensure our children will achieve at their highest potential. A strong partnership with you will make all the difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share responsibility in nurturing our children’s success; and we want you to know that we take our roles seriously. Accordingly, 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 assignments.
  3. Reads daily.
  4. Talks with you about what takes place in school.
We strongly encourage consistent communication with your child’s teacher(s). My motto is: “Talk first to avoid problems later.” If you have questions or concerns about what goes on in school, do not hesitate to 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 here at school. Our children are best served when we communicate and work together. 

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.

 Larchmont School's Vision Statement

The Larchmont School Community will learn, grow, and work together respectfully to fulfill our shared responsibility to develop confident student learners who demonstrate character and achieve academic excellence.

We are Larchmont…learning, growing, and working together!

At Larchmont, school spirit can be felt the moment you walk through our doors. Our goal is to create fun, memorable learning experiences for all students, while instilling in them a sense of pride in their school and community.
