FROM YOUR SCHOOL LEADER


Hello Larchmont Fairfax Families:


Twice each year during our conference weeks, Larchmont sends out parent, staff and student satisfaction surveys. It is time for our first Parent Satisfaction Survey of the year. Teachers will be administering students surveys in their classes or on Seesaw.


Please take just a couple of minutes to fill out the Parent Satisfaction Survey (see links below)!  In previous years, Larchmont Fairfax has had the HIGHEST response rate of all campuses on the survey, and we'd like to continue that trend this time around, too!  This data is important to us as a school to help us know what areas we're doing well in and what our areas for growth are.  Please use the comment section to let us know BOTH what you love and what you'd like to see grow. The Principal, Executive Director, Board and Site Council review this data closely.  


Over the years we've made note of the things you've said that you love and we've made sure to continue those elements and grow them whenever possible. We've also made many additions and adjustments based on survey results.  A few examples include the purchase of more chromebooks, a new art studio for Jamia, additions to our diversity curriculum, a new communication platform in Wix, the addition of cameras for campus security, a new facilities tracker document to keep up with site issues, more frequent classroom newsletters to make sure you're staying apprised of classroom news, and much more. We appreciate your input and we look forward to sharing the results with you soon! Parent (English): https://larchmontcharter.wufoo.com/forms/x12r4f0d1xm0jix/

Finally, we're asking every family to donate to the Annual Giving Drive by 10/31- this is our biggest fundraiser of the year and 100% of the funds go directly to help our school keep our small class sizes, our rich program, college counseling, athletics, arts, and much more. Fairfax is now up to 50% of our campus donating!!!!!! Please donate generously and know that no amount is too small.  http://www.larchmontcharter.org/give


Have a wonderful weekend, and please be sure to read below for more updates.


All the best,

Andi and Mersedeh

We have hired this firm to help support families and teachers by answering your tech-related questions, supporting your technology, and managing your devices. TechaBee is here to help with tech issues regarding Chromebooks, Zoom, technology apps, and much more! We have taken this action to be as responsive as we can as a school to your tech needs during this distance learning period. 

The help desk is available 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. During COVID-19 families are also free to email the help desk at any time! 

Email all requests to techabee@larchmontcharter.org, CC belinda@techabee.com & terence@larchmontcharter.org
