Mission Statement

The mission of R.C. LaPerche Elementary School, as an inclusive learning community devoted to high standards and best teaching practices for all students, is to inspire life-long learning and to develop responsible, self-confident children capable of effective communication and problem solving, through a collaboration of parents, teachers, students, and the community, which fosters a safe, respectful environment, recognizing diversity and individuality.

Summer Learning 2018

This year, we have a new Summer Learning Guide which provides a variety of summer learning opportunities to engage all LaPerche students.  Take some time to explore it with your child.
Students who complete their summer learning and return the VERIFICATION FORM by Friday, September 14 will be invited to an Outdoor Fun Festival which will take place during school on Friday, September 21.  
Please feel free to email with any questions. I hope you and your family have a safe, relaxing and fun-filled summer break!

Raymond C. LaPerche Elementary School is one of four elementary schools in the Smithfield Public School system. Our school is dedicated to Raymond C. LaPerche, a former teacher, principal and superintendent in the Smithfield Public Schools for 41 years. LaPerche first opened its doors in 1968 and presently serves students in kindergarten to grade five.
