Principal's Message

  • Happy New School Year Larkdale Nation,

     I would like to officially welcome you to the 2022-2023 academic school year !  It brings be great pleasure to serve another year as your proud principal of Larkdale Elementary, “Where Learning Last a Lifetime.” We are excited to begin another amazing year full of hope and Larkdale pride.  The 2021-2022 school year was a year of growth and high expectations for all. Larkdale Elementary continued our quest for academic excellence by increasing our school grade by ten percentage points.   Earning a school grade of a “C” (3 points away from a B) showed the commitment and resiliency of our scholars and teachers.  Larkdale Elementary scholars in grades 3-5 made significant gains in math and was acknowledged by Broward County’s Math Department.   With your continued support, we are confident that we’ll continue to reach our school-wide goals year after year.  Our motivational theme this year is, “ Larkdale R.I.S.E (Reshaping and Inspiring Scholars through Education)!”

    This year, I’d like to invite you to participate in our home-school connection initiative.  We encourage you to take an active role and become involved in our parent groups or as a volunteer in our school. You can complete the application on the Parents, Business & Community Partnerships website at Remember, you can make a world of difference in your child’s education!  I would also like to invite you to visit our school’s website  This will serve as a resource tool for all upcoming events, student/parent handbook, important reminders and you can catch up with all the wonderful things our students and teachers are doing.   

    In closing, we would like to once again welcome you back to school and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, at Open House.
