Our sixth grade class had a blast at Clark Planetarium this year!  They walked on the moon, visited Mars and went on a space roller-coaster.  Students were able to explore and experience Science, hands-on, with the wonderful activities that Clark Planetarium offers.  We had so much fun and are anxiously awaiting our next outing!  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!

Fourth Graders were excited to have a real-life mountain man, Scott Sorenson visit us recently.  He kept us spell-bound as he told us tall tales as well as true stories about the adventures of real mountain men.
We also loved the animal calls he did for us and were excited to learn that we can call a chipmunk by wetting our hand and kissing it.  Believe me, we all had to try it.  We loved being able to stroke the furs he brought as well. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!

Larsen Elementary's second graders got a special treat when Maple Mountain High's football team stopped by to visit with the students and read a few books.  The students had a great time reading with the players and visiting with them about school and being a football player.  We appreciate Coach Burtenshaw and the MMHS's football players taking time to make a positive impact on our students.
