It was our annual Larsen Faculty vs 6th Graders kickball game today. The teams were ready to fight for the trophy and bragging rights for the year. The game was very competitive and both teams had some great plays but the faculty came out victorious. Better luck next year sixth graders!
Larsen Elementary would like to thank Macey's School Cents program and Larsen parents for all the support they have been to our school. Because of all the grocery shopping that our parents have been doing at Macey's and being a part of the Schools Cents program, we were able to receive the LARGEST check from them in amount of $10,000! Wow!! We will use this money for technology, supplies and other areas of need in our school. Thank you for making a difference to our students and their education. It is greatly appreciated.
Mrs. Shepherd's 4th Grade class has been waiting patiently for 21 days for these little bundles of joy to hatch! Dr. Bland who is a veterinarian came and taught our class what happens on each day of the 21 day incubation. We would like to introduce Bruce, Sunshine, Fluffy Jr, Zoe, Bacon, and Speedy-Weedy Jr.! Thank you Dr. Bland and Shepherd's Egg Farm for bringing Agriculture into our Classroom!
On a brisk April morning, the Larsen Elementary 6th grade students and teachers embarked on a journey. Their quest was to experience science happening in their community. The chosen destination was the Spanish Fork City Waste water Treatment Plant. As the buses pulled into our destination, the students immediately reacted. "EEEWWW!!! What is that smell?" shouted the students. It was met with smiles from the teachers as we knew what it was. Isn't learning great? We have been studying harmful and helpful microorganisms and their impact on our world. This field trip allowed our students to see an everyday process that is aided by helpful microorganisms. Waste water goes through a multi-step treatment process to return it to a clean and usable product we rely on. Thank you Bacteria! This purification process is something that the students admittedly took for granted because clean water is always available when they need it. We hope that this field trip helped each student have a greater respect for what happens behind the scenes to provide the quality of life they are used to. Thank you to Dennis Sorensen and his workers for giving us a tour that taught our students how microorganisms help our community have clean water to use and drink.
The 6th grade orchestra students from Larsen and Park Elementary performed for parents and fellow students musical numbers at their end of year performance. Mrs. Derfler is the orchestra teacher and does a fantastic job helping students learn to play their instruments. Great job orchestra members and thank you parents for your support.
The fifth and sixth grade students in the Larsen Elementary Choir were able to participate in Hope of America on Wednesday May 4th with over 3,000 other students around Utah County. After months of hard work, they had a wonderful time at the Marriott Center thanking our veterans and first responders, and singing about the freedoms we have here in our country. It was a special night, and we all felt grateful to be a part of such an incredible team! Great job Larsen choi
