The students favored the audience with three songs and two students from each class were chosen to read their essay.  Our DARE officer, Officer DeWitt made DARE fun!  Thank you Officer DeWitt and parents!  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!

Friday, January 27th Larsen Elementary held their annual Dad’s and Donuts activity before school started from 7:30 a.m. to 8:25 a.m.  Students enjoyed reading a book from the PTA, who had given books to all of the students to read. Students chose to bring their dad, uncle, grandpa, mom, or other special person with them to the fun event.  Delicious, warm donuts were served to everyone. Thank you Larsen PTA and parents for supporting your child’s reading! Way To Go Leopards!!
