Thursday May 16, 2013 Larsen 4th Grade visited "This Is The Place" in Salt Lake City. They started the day by attending school, meeting their new teacher and learning new school rules, then everyone headed over to pull or push a handcart. 4th Graders watched and learned a little about being a Blacksmith and then it was off for a ride around the park on the train for a history lesson. We ate our sack lunches then boarded the buses and leaped through time back to 2013 and arrived safe and sound at Larsen. Way To Go Leopards!!
Larsens “Mr. B,” the Beekeeper (also known as Mr. Bingham, School Counselor) amazed Larsen’s Kindergarteners by showing them how bees make honey, giving out tastes of honey from his own hives and showing the fancy clothes beekeepers wear. Our Kindergarteners also learned about the different kinds of Bees, workers, queens, drones, guards, and fanners. Thank you Mr. B!!
Friday May 17, 2013 Larsen Elementary was presented with a check from Sonic Drive Inn for Larsens Sonic Night. This year Larsen made the most money out of any other schools who have done Sonic Night in our area. Thank you Sonic and WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Larsen Elementary second graders recently took a field trip to the Farm Field Days at harwood Farms in Springville. We learned about farming and how important agriculture is to everyone. We started off the day seeing how a sheep gets a hair cut, the farmers like to call it sheering. As the days get warmer the sheep love to get rid of their heavy winter wool coat.
We learned about bees, chickens, sheep and cows. We learned about where milk, beef, and eggs come from. We learned to eat healthy good foods for our bodies to be strong and healthy. We had a terrific day at the Harwood Farm. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!!!
Larsen Elementary 4-H students have been having quite the fun lately with lots of exciting classes. This last session of 4-H classes have been extra fun and we are sad to see them ending so quickly.

We want to thank all of the awesome teachers who have helped to make this mini 4-H session the very best. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
