The wheels on the bus take us home to Larsen Elementary.

What do kindergarten students love?  To ride the school bus!  What makes it even better?  When the bus takes them to the Big Red Barn in Santaquin.  Kindergarten students got to take a bus ride, and then ride in a big wagon to the apple orchards to pick their own apples.  The day was completed by a run through the maze and an apple doughnut!  What a great day! Way To Go Leopards!!!

The kindergarten classes at Larsen had a lot of special visitors on Friday, October 7, 2011.  Grandparents, parents and friends came to kindergarten to hear a short program and eat lunch with the students.  Grandparents from as far away as California, and as close as just down the street joined in the fun!  Way To Go Leopards!!

Native American pyramids.

Fifth grade students learned about Native Americans by creating a pyramid.  Each student chose a tribe and then had to represent four different sections of that tribe, like where they lived, what they ate, arts and crafts, and other important information they could find.  This activity is a lot of work for the students but the pyramids turned out amazing!  Way To Go Leopards!

The fifth-graders at Larsen Elementary got to meet a real author, Janene Wolsey Baadsgaard.  They participated in her wonderful presentation where they learned about the writing process and even helped her start writing a new story!  The fifth graders learned about what it takes to be a real author and discovered that they all have the potential to be great authors themselves.  Way To Go Leopards!
