Larsen Elementary recently held their annual Christmas Choir Concert of 2012.  Students from both 5th and 6th grade performed favorites such as “Hot Cup of Cocoa,” “Holiday Blessings,” “Joy in Jerusalem,” and more for students and parents. They even played hand bells for a couple musical numbers. It was a great evening!  These dedicated students practice before and afterschool several times a week. We absolutely love our Larsen choir and love to hear all of their hard work and dedication pay off. Way To Go Leopards!!

5th Grade Visits Olympic Park

Right before Thanksgiving break; our 5th grade students had the opportunity to visit the Olympic Park up in Park City. We had fun learning about how winter sports have changed over the years, the different equipment they use, how snow happens through the water cycle, and snowflake formations. The students also got to walk along the actual track used for bobsledding and the skeleton man races. Unfortunately, we were checking it out in between competitions and couldn’t stay to watch but we got to see some of the athletes at their award ceremony. Overall, it was a very fun (and cold) experience. The student’s also received a free voucher to ride either the ski lift or alpine slide so I’m sure they’ll be back!  Way To Go Leopards!
