Larsen 4th graders recently went back in time to the Mesozoic Era.  We culminated our fossil and dinosaur unit by making dinosaur dioramas.  Students recreated the dinosaur's environment, then added salt dough replicas.  Way to go Leopards!!!

On Monday September 12, 2011 Larsen Elementary held their annual fall carnival.  Students and their families enjoyed a wonderful Fall evening filled with silent auctions, yummy food, games, prizes, rides and one of the favorites, rock climbing!  Some of the fun games and rides included the ever popular rock climbing tower, bouncy house, train rides and the giant shark slide!  This year the carnival was held outside in the nice cool weather.  It was a perfect night for a carnival! 

Larsen PTA did a wonderful job putting together our fall carnival this year and we want to send them a huge THANK YOU!  Larsen also wants to thank all of the parent helpers, teachers and staff for their help and volunteering their time and efforts to make our carnival such a huge success this year.  We would also like to thank all of those businesses, organizations and families that contributed to our silent auction.  Way to go leopards!!
