1st Grade Learns About Movement

Our 1st grade classes had the opprotunity to have Mrs. Markgraf-Mayne teach them about movement and dance.  They learned about being high, middle and low to the ground. Students learned about smooth movements and sharp movements.  1st graders also got to just dance and show their own awesome moves.  Thanks you Mrs. Markgraf-Mayne for helping teach all the fun moves our bodies can make.

1st Grade visits Cornbellys


Larsen 1st graders went on a fun, Fall field trip to Cornbelly's at Thanksgiving Point.  They played in Corn Cob Beach, went on a hayride,  jumped on the Jumbo Jumpers,  watched pigs race, and walked through the corn maze.  Each class got to take a pumpkin back to their classroom too.  1st graders are ready for Fall y'all!

Kindergarten Visits Canyon View Park


Kindergarters were so excited for their first field trip of the year.  They got to ride on a bus for the first time too and visited Canyon View Park. The classes had many fun activities planned while they were there.  They found leaves and did leaf rubbings, found rocks and wrote their names on them,  did water experiments and of course got to play on the playground.  Thank you Mrs. Eckhardt, Mrs. Murphy and and all the other helpers that made this day so fun!

MMHS Football Players Visit Larsen


Larsen students were excited to have some of the football players from MMHS  come read books to them, answer questions and even play a little soccer game.  What was awesome also is that 4 of the players were Larsen Leopards too when they were younger.  We appreciate them coming and helping students see that school is cool!

Monthly Birthday Lunch Table


This year at Larsen we're starting a new tradition! The PTA would like you to join your child for lunch to celebrate his/her birthday. There will be a birthday table set up & decorated, generally, every first Friday of the month, with some exceptions. (June, July and August birthdays will be celebrated throughout the year).  You can bring in your own lunch or pay in the cafeteria for school lunch.  It is $4.00 for an adult. If you plan on having school lunch please let the cafeteria know ahead of time so they will have enough food.  We will have two celebrations this month. August birthdays will be celebrated Friday, September 15th and September birthdays will be celebrated Friday, September 29th.  Then October birthdays on Friday, October 6th.  We hope you can join with us in celebrating your child!
