U.S. Census 2020

Submitted by teresa.beebe on Mon, 03/09/2020 - 12:29

The U.S. Census Bureau has embarked on a nationwide effort to inform everyone living in the United States and five of its territories about the upcoming 2020 Census and to encourage them to respond online, by phone, or by mail.

Everyone counts. The census counts every person living in the U.S. once, only once, and in the right places.

It’s about fair representation. Every 10 years, the results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets.

It’s in the constitution. The U.S. Constitution mandates that everyone in the country be counted every 10 years. The first census was in 1790.

It’s about $675 billion. The distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on census data. That money is spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs.

The 2020 Census count impacts the federal funds that communities receive each year for programs and services that are critical for schools, students, and younger children, such as: 

  • Special education, 
  • Head Start, 
  • After-school programs, and 
  • Classroom technology. 
  • Food assistance, including free and reduced-price school lunches.
  • Maternal and child health programs.

Counting Children
Newborn babies and children under 5 are often missed in the census, with consequences that can impact nearly their entire childhood. 

For more information, go to:  2020Census.gov.

United States Census 2020 is also looking for Census Takers. You can apply online at: 2020CENSUS.GOV/jobs. You can make extra income, have flexible hours, weekly pay, and receive paid training.

Several classes at Larsen where lucky to have Panda Express come and visit their classrooms.  They taught students about what Lunar New Year is all about in China.  Panda shared the customs and legends that have been passed down for over 3,800 years!  They also were awesome for bringing food for everyone!   Thank you Panda Express for coming and celebrating with us!

Mrs Thomas and Teachers Get Pies in their Faces for Read A Thon

Submitted by teresa.beebe on Mon, 03/02/2020 - 11:35

We had an eventful morning here at Larsen Elementary.  First we had an assembly called "In Their Shoes" where students learned about how people live in other countries  .  Then after that, we got to hold our awesome read-a-thon assembly.  The winning grade levels were 1st and 4th grade.  Each class got to choose someone to get a pie thrown in their face.  There were many nervous faculty and staff waiting to see who they would pick.  The lucky winners were Mrs. Thomas (3 pies), Ms. Linnell, Mrs. Chynoweth, Mrs. Stevenson and Mrs. Wilson.  They were great sports and all took it like champs!  If you would still like to donate to the read-a-thon,  the QR code is on the last picture or you can bring it to the office.  Thanks for all the donations and keep up the great reading!
