Thursday May 8, 2014 we held our final assembly for our Champions Challenge Rodeo Reading Contest.  We started on  April 1, by having the host Randy Munns, the rodeo clown, along with members of the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days Royalty and members of the Rodeo Committee, come and officially kick off the challenge here at Larsen Elementary.  During the month of April we held a Champions' Reading Challenge where the students were eligible to win two tickets to the May 31st Champions Challenge Rodeo by reading as many minutes as they could for the month of April and then their names were put into a drawing for each grade level.  CONGRATULATIONS to our 6 lucky winners. Keep up the good work and let’s keep READING!!!  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!!

Wednesday May 7, 2014 we had the privilege of hearing our own Larsen Sixth Grade Orchestra perform in an assembly for our entire student body.  Their teacher is Kim Derfler.  They performed favorites such as "Ode to Joy" and "Cannon in D."   Gianna Paice played "Part of Your World," from "The Little Mermaid" on her violin.  The orchestra has greatly improved since we last saw them at Christmas time. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!

Our Larsen Elementary Kindergarteners helped Easter "Drop" in by holding their annual Easter egg hunt and egg drop. They started by finding hidden eggs around the playground and then we were excited to watch the egg drop contest begin!! At home, each student has to put their egg in something to try and make his/her egg unbreakable when it drops from Larsens roof. The students are very creative, wrapping their eggs in sponges, bubble wrap, toilet papaer, shoes, boxes and many more crazy and fun things.  Mr. V and Mr. Andersen helped out by dropping the packages from the roof.
