Recently 4th grade students from Larsen Elementary joined the Union troops and enjoyed a fun filled day out at Camp Floyd.  On our field trip to Camp Floyd the fourth graders made adobe bricks and candles, went to pioneer school, drilled with the army, visited a stage coach inn and toured a museum. We played pony express games and learned about the events that led up to the US Army marching to Utah.  Among other things we also got a taste of what school life was like in the 1860s.  It was a great experience to travel back in time and visit Camp Floyd.  Way To Go Leopards!!

Larsen Elementary Remembers Veterans Day!

Larsen Elementary recently had some very special visitors come to our school to help us honor Veteran's Day. We are so proud of all of our veterans and enjoyed having them come and talk to us this year. We watched a video presentation, and each one of the Veterans and our own Mr. Scoubes, introduced themselves and talked to the students and told us a little about where they have served.  It was a very touching and moving assembly reminding us all of what these wonderful Veterans have sacrificed and done for us and our Country so that we can be free. At the end of the assembly we were privileged to have one of the Veterans play "Taps"! It was the great start to a very honorable day!
