4th Grade Visit Diamond Fork Canyon

The fourth graders went on a fun field trip up Diamond Fork canyon last week! They went on a nature walk where they saw a tepee and beaver dam. Students also learned about the birds living in Diamond Fork and even saw a few! The most exciting part was when they put on big waders and were able to look for different bugs in the river. Only a few students fell in! It was great for the 4th grades to have some hands on experiences with what they are going to be learning this year in Social Studies and Science. 

BYU Baseball Players Come to Larsen For Red Ribbon Week

Our school was lucky to have  players from the BYU baseball team come and talk to us as part of Red Ribbon Week.  The players talked about how important it is to stay in good physical shape and be healthy in order to play sports.  The team told the students that drugs can prevent them from being able to enjoy all the sports they love and other fun activities that they want to participate in.  Thank you players for helping us understand that DRUG FREE is the best way to be!

Red Ribbon Week: Drugs "Wreck" our Bodies


We had the opprotunity to have a car from a demolition derby brought to our school today to represent that drugs can "wreck" our bodies.  If we will stay away from drugs we will be healthy and be able to run smoothly.  We choose to be DRUG FREE!

September Reading Reward Dance Off

Larsen students participated in the September Reading Reward Dance Off recently.  We found that we have some fantastic dancers here at our school! Students who had read their minutes in September were chosen to come on stage and then pick a teacher to have a dance off with.  Mrs. Beebe, Ms. Bushman, Mrs. Robison and Mr. Villar were the judges.  Our overall winner was Teni Worthen.  Congratulations to all our great readers here at Larsen!!
