Please remember to send your students with coats, hats and mittens to school. Most days are going to be outside recess and we don't want any of our friends turning into little snowmen. Students need to have a note from their parents if they are supposed to stay inside. Thanks and Happy Holidays!
Larsen 4th - 6th graders had the opportunity to attend the BYU Womens Basketball game with other schools through out the district on Wednesday. Many donations from people and companies made this possible for students to attend. They had a great time and the BYU even came out with the win! Thank you to all those people who help create great opportunites for our students.
Our 5th graders have been participating in the D.A.R.E program taught by Officer DeWitt from Spanish Fork Police Department. They recently held their graduation where some of the students were able to read their essays on why they are staying away from harmful substances. D.A.R.E stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. Thank you Officer Dewitt for helping our students stay DRUG FREE!
Fifth Grade had the privilege of meeting with wonderful role models from Maple Mountain High School. They came to answer the students' questions about how drug use can impact a person's life in a very negative way. They passed on advice about choosing the best friends they can right now because of the impact it will have on each student in junior high and high school. The students laughed with them and had a twinkle in their eyes, looking forward to when they can be in high school learning new things that they can hardly imagine. It was a great last meeting
Just a reminder for 5th grade parents that D.A.R.E graduation is being held Friday, Dec. 2 at 1:30. It will be held in the cafeteria. Please come and hear about all the good choices students are making to stay away from harmful substances that will hurt their bodies. We are so proud of our students for making the choice to stay drug free!
It has been a tradition for many years that our 5th grade students create these beautiful stained glass Christmas windows. It is one of our favorite parts of the holiday season. Drive past our school and look at all the beautiful pictures hanging in the windows.
Laurie Harrop-Purser, a faculty member in the theater department at UVU, came to Larsen Elementary's reading assembly to inspire the students to read. She retold the story "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" in a very fun, theatrical way. The students loved it. Thank you Ms. Harrop-Purser for helping us see how fun reading a book can be!

Utah State 4-H is raising how much WE pay for each child to participate in 4-H. This raise happens January 1, 2017. Students that are already in 4-H online will not be affected by the change. For this reason, we will give you Christmas Around the World Club free if your child is registered in 4-H online for this year. Not sure how to do that? Go to the 4-H Information page on this website for information on how to register.
