Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!

Dear Larkspur Families,


Welcome Back! We are incredibly excited to begin our 2016-2017 school year here at Larkspur Elementary! This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before!  We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with PTO’s enrichment and our new partnership with Champions, our  before and after care, we are certain to encourage our Bobcats to be involved and stay connected!  With our start date fast approaching, you will find an August calendar reflecting some important dates for you to keep in mind.  We are so excited for the new school year, and to see all of you at the events listed below.


Who is your teacher you ask? We are in the process of finalizing class lists, as we speak.  Your students’ class assignments will be available through Parent Portal as of Friday, July 29th.  We ask that, when you log in to view assignments, please complete the Express Check In and ensure your email is updated as my blog is the main form of communication. If you have questions, or need assistance accessing your Parent Portal account, please contact Heather Walstrom at 303-387-5391 or heather.walstrom@dcsdk12.org.  


School supplies? There were a few items on the supply lists that, after going through our inventory, we actually do not need.  If you have not already purchased your supplies, you may disregard red pens, as well as ziploc baggies.  Also, we somehow ended up with an abundance of college ruled paper, which we do not use.  For those of you who have middle or high school students, if you are in need of college ruled paper, please feel free to stop by the PTO table during the Open House on Friday, August 5th, and grab a package or two.


Want to volunteer? We need your help! Our wonderful PTO is looking to fill several board positions, as well as recruit new members!  In an effort to keep things fresh, the PTO membership fee has been waived this year; however, you will still be required to fill out a membership form.  If you have any burning questions our current PTO members will provide invaluable information about the community and ways that you can be involved!


I certainly look forward to seeing you at these and other events during the school year. Please enjoy the remaining days of the summer, as we eagerly anticipate another fulfilling year of meaningful learning experiences for our students. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Go Bobcats!




Jen Oldham, Principal
