Our own Mrs. Head received the PEAK Award last night.  This award stands for Positive Energy and Kind employees.  Mrs. Head is always so kind and friendly to everyone that comes to Larsen. She makes everyone feel loved and accepted.  We love you Mrs. Head and appreciate all you do for Larsen.   She was nominated by Principal Andersen.  Below is the nomination that was written about her.

Kim Head, Secretary, Larsen Elementary
Nominated by: Garrett Andersen
“Kim always goes out of her way to make parents and students feel accepted in the front office of Larsen Elementary. She always has a smile. The love she has for her job beams through everything she does. Kim has gone the extra mile in helping several families get the needed documents and approval to enroll in school because she knows the importance of getting kids here and supporting the parents. Kim has helped take on a massive shift in our school culture.  I know that we could not have made this shift without her help and understanding. I appreciate ALL that she does for Larsen.”
