Larchmont Elementary School

Dear Larchmont Family,

On behalf of the staff at Larchmont School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-17 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 here at school.

Dr. George E. Jackson
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. 

Dr. George E. Jackson, Principal

Philadelphia Girls Choir Auditions Coming Here!

They should be returned to your child's Mount Laurel
School Music Teacher as soon as possible, or completed and e-mailed to Marie Reynolds.
Philadelphia Girls Choir Music Director Jeffrey Smith will hold auditions for girls ages seven and older who have not previously auditioned for the Choir at the Hillside School on Thursday, June 1, beginning at 3:30 p.m. and ending at 4:30 p.m. Girls interested in joining the Choir's training program will be asked to sing a familiar song and perform a few simple singing exercises. This audition is very informal and will last only a few moments. Those girls selected for a final audition will be notified by mail within the month. These local auditions are open to all girls from the area who meet the above criteria and need not be a Mount Laurel Schools student.

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). 
 

2016-2017 Larchmont School Constitution

  • Be Respectful - Show care and kindness to everyone and everything in our school.
  • Always Try Your Best - Never give up and give 100% effort.
  • Listen with Empathy - Try to understand what others are saying or feeling.
  • 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.

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!
