MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear LCS Selma Families,
We hope you are staying safe and healthy. There is a lot happening next week at Larchmont! Please read below to learn more about Conference Week, Parent Stakeholder Surveys, Annual Giving Drive, and more! Thank you for your continued support this school year.
Annual Giving Drive!
Great news, Selma campus! We have 41% participation in our Annual Giving Drive as of today!
This is truly amazing, but we want to get as close to 100% participation as possible! There's still time. If you've already made your pledge, thank you so much for being a part of that 41%. If you haven't yet, please go to larchmontcharter.org/give to make your donation.
If you want to help us to continue to grow this amazing school, please pledge to help us reach our goal so we can keep all of the necessities, enrichments and opportunities our students deserve in a high quality and high performing public education.
Thank you for being part of this work. Participate. Anything helps. We appreciate being part of your team.
Parent Stakeholder Surveys
We ask for parent feedback twice per year through our stakeholder surveys. Thank you for taking a few moments to let us know how LCS Selma is doing!
SCCC: Southern California Counseling Center
We are excited to share that Larchmont Charter School at Selma will continue the partnership with Southern California Counseling Center! We have amazing, trained counselors who are eager to support our students through this school year for free! If you have any questions or are interested in exploring this opportunity for your child to receive social emotional support, please email Sarah, Mini or Val (School Psychologist) for more information.

Conference Week Schedule
Please see below for the conference week class schedule for each grade level. Enrichments will follow the same schedule as regular weeks, meaning a student’s Monday Enrichments will remain the same. Sign-ups for the conference will come from teachers, so please check your emails or contact Chris or Danielle. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the schedule.
Conferences with Enrichment Teachers
Parents, all eight enrichment teachers will be holding open house conference times every day from 1:30-2:00pm. You may drop in to any teacher's Zoom any day of the week. You'll enter their Zoom Waiting Room cue and they will be able to speak with you in the order you logged on. If you need more than a few minutes to talk, you may arrange additional time with them after your initial conference meeting.
Enrichment Teacher Zooms:
The Actors Gang
Classes For Kids
We are excited to announce our Virtual Saturday Classes for children, ages 8-12. Utilizing our signature style of theater, Commedia dell’Arte the children are encouraged to express honest emotions through bold character choices by participating in improvisation, written, and drawing exercises. These classes provide a safe space for children to exercise their imaginations, express themselves creatively, and build their self-confidence.
