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.  We look forward to meeting you at our Back to School Night on Thursday, September 28th at 6:30 p.m.

Sincerely,

Dr. George E. Jackson,

Principal

Dear Community Members, Parents, Business and Community Leaders, Students and Staff:

The Mount Laurel School District has launched "A Path to Success 2030", a strategic planning initiative that engages our community prior to the development of a new three-year strategic plan for our schools.

I would like to personally invite you to participate in our Strategic Planning Meetings. Your perspective would be a tremendous asset as the entire community comes together for these important discussions. Each of our sessions will focus on a specific theme designed to gather your input. All meetings will be held at the Mount Laurel Hartford School from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., as described below.

Please join those who have a vested interest in the success of the Mount Laurel School District as we begin this journey toward A Path to Success for all students.

Our meeting schedule is shown below. For your convenience, sign-up to attend through our online event service through the link below. You may attend all three meetings, or as many as your schedule will allow.

I look forward to sharing this Mount Laurel experience with you. Feel free to invite anyone you believe will bring meaningful dialogue to the discussion.

George J. Rafferty, Superintendent of Schools

New Lunch and Breakfast Menus Online and Improved

Check out our new interactive Cafeteria Menu. Breakfast and Lunch Menus are all in one place, and all schools are accessible through a drop-down menu. Hold your cursor over any item in bold and its complete nutritional value will pop up. Use the button on the top-right of the page to get Carb Counts on all menu items.
