Larchmont Elementary School

Dear Larchmont Family,

I hope summer 2016 finds you well as I write you concerning Larchmont's Summer Reading.

At Larchmont School, we are proud of the fact that our students experienced considerable reading growth this past school year.  We were truly glad to celebrate student success at the end of the year and we do not want to them to lose ground over the summer. Therefore, as you enjoy the summer months, we welcome you to participate in Larchmont Summer Reading!

Our goal is for our students to develop a love for reading and to continue to grow as readers over the summer.  One major way we can accomplish this is to foster opportunities for our children to read what interests them. Wherever you are this summer, we encourage summer reading.  Linked below, you will find directions on how to register and participate, along with information about our 2016 Summer Book Exchange.

I wish you a safe and fun-filled summer as we continue to learn, grow, and work together.

Sincerely,

George E. Jackson

Principal

Larchmont School

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). 

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!

About Our School:
Larchmont Elementary School, home of the Bears, is a learning community committed to providing all children a top quality educational program. Our school encourages each student to achieve his or her highest academic and social potential through actively engaging classroom instruction and character education initiatives. Our school's enrollment ranges from approximately 390-400 students in grades PK-4. 

Our Parent Teacher Organization is very active at Larchmont Elementary School. The P.T.O. sponsors a number of enriching activities for the students and staff. They provide financial support as well as family sponsored social activities for our children.

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.
 

If It's Summer, It Must Be Time For Summer Reading Lists!

Mount Laurel's Summer Reading Program includes suggested books for students in Grade 1-7. Students are encouraged to create a log of books read for discussion in class in the Fall. Please recognize that your child may select a book that is not on the suggested list that fits his or her individual interests and reading level. Should you have questions about the Summer Reading Program, please contact your school office, which will be open throughout the summer. The following letters to parents detail the program by grade level. The suggested list is also linked below.
