Dear Larchmont Families,
We hope you all are enjoying these last few weeks of summer. We are incredibly excited for the upcoming school year, just weeks away. We’ve been busy planning and preparing for your children’s arrival on Wednesday, August 24th.
First, we would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families who are joining the Larchmont community. We look forward to forging long and lasting relationships with you and your children on your journey through Larchmont Charter School. Please consider joining our community on Saturday, August 20th from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for our Campus Beautification Day. It's a great way to get involved and meet people before the first day of school.
Next, we want to share with you the news that Lead Teacher Katie Swain has made the difficult decision to move to the San Diego area to be near her fiancé. While we all will miss Katie dearly, we genuinely wish her well and know that she’s embarking on an exciting time in her own life. On behalf of the staff and parent community, we would like to thank Katie for her support and dedication to Larchmont Charter School, and its students, families and staff. Please take a minute to read Katie’s heartfelt farewell letter linked here.
Also, for your reference, here is the 2016/17 SCHOOL CALENDAR.
