Red Ribbon Week

This week our students have been learning about the dangers of drugs during our Red Ribbon Week. Classes made signs pledging to stay away from things that hurt their bodies and minds. There were different activities each day that helped students remember to stay healthy and strong. Larsen students are smart and drug free! Thanks Ms. B for all your hard work during Red Ribbon Week.

Larsen Ninja Warrior

Larsen students participated in a fun "Ninja Warrior" course for being such great readers!  Our 5th grade teachers put together a course that required agility, speed and strength.  Students had to jump through hoops, army crawl under ropes, hippity hop to the river, jump over the river and then scooter to the finish line.  Mrs. Thomas and Ms. Berns even completed the course.  Larsen has some mighty warriors but even better readers!  Keep up the good work.
