The 5th grade students loved meeting the dancers in their costumes from other countries.
The BYU performers loved meeting with the students.

Israel, Ireland, and India are just three of the places we visited while watching Christmas Around The World.  The fifth grade students at Larsen Elementary traveled not only to BYU, but to other countries as we watched dances performed by the BYU Dance teams.  The costumes were amazing, authentic, and colorful!  It helped us get into the Christmas Spirit!  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!

Maple Mountain students speak to 5th graders about D.A.R.E. program.

Four students from Maple Mountain High School visited 5th grade students at Larsen Elementary.  These high school students are role models for the DARE program.  They spoke to the fifth grade about not doing drugs or alcohol.  The fifth grade students were able to ask the high school students thought provoking questions about peer pressure, finding good friends, and having fun in high school.  We appreciated the high school students taking time out of their busy day to spend time with us.  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!

WOOSH!  The bobsled team just blew by us!  The fifth grade students at Larsen Elementary watched as teams from different countries practiced their bobsled run at Park City Olympic Park.  We also stood at the top of the Nordic Ski Jump in AWE and how high we were.  This was proceeded by a tour of the museum with five rotations learning about water cycle, economics of Park City in 1800's, and memorabilia from the 2002 Utah Olympics.  This is a fantastic field trip that we look forward to every year!  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
