Welcome Back


Parents and Students,

     We are so excited to begin another great year of school here at Larsen Elementary.  We are almost finished with this new registration process.  I really wanted to thank you for your efforts and especially your patience.  As with new things, it takes some getting used, so thanks again!      I want to make you aware of important dates and also some great opportunities that you and your children can look forward to this year. 

     Open House will take place on Monday, August 21, from 3:30-5:30pm.  Students will be able to come to the school and meet their teachers.  The PTA will be set up in the front foyer with opportunities for parents to sign up and help out our school and classrooms in a variety of different ways.  Make sure to sign up for as many activities as your schedule allows.  They will also be selling school shirts.  We have chosen to keep the same school shirt as last year.  This year school hoodies will also be available for purchase. 

          We would like to thank the PTA for their great support.  This year they are going to hold quarterly family activities at little to no cost.  Families will be able to participate in game night, skate nights, and possibly a carnival paid for by the PTA.  They are also providing a monthly parent date night where parents will have the opportunity to receive some training about the Leader in Me program.  At Larsen we are working hard to help students realize and reach their full potential.  Part of the way that we are doing this is through Steven Covey's Seven Habits.  While we are not an official Leader in Me school at this time, we have chosen to continue trying to incorporate the language and principles that it teaches.  The PTA was trained and is on board to help get parents up to speed so that we can all become familiar with the language.  Look for fliers to inform you about the trainings, and hopefully this will be something that will be a benefit to you and your family.      The First Day of School is August 22 for a First-Sixth Grades, with Kindergarteners beginning on August 29th.  School begins at 8:30am, and ends at 2:45pm.  Early Out days will still be held on Monday's.  School ends at 2:00pm on these days so that teachers can hold their collaboration meetings.  Afternoon kindergarten has a different start time on Mondays, so check the school website for a reminder of school start and end times.  Make note that the school doors will remain locked until 8:00am during the school year.  Students will be able to get breakfast at that time.  Morning supervision begins at 8:05am, so just make note so that we can work together to keep all kids safe.      For your information, our school website is updated regularly.  To get the most recent and up to date information, access links, and check out all of the awesome things happening at school, check out the link:   This is also the location where you will sign up for parent teacher conferences, find information about our after school programs, and access the Leopard Link.  The Leopard Link is a monthly newsletter that I send out to keep you up to date on the things that have happened that month and important dates that will be coming in the month ahead.   I am so grateful to be part of such a great community that cares about kids. We love having your children at Larsen, and we have a great staff that does their best to meet our students needs!  Thanks for all of the great support! :)

Registration Day Tomorrow


Just a reminder that tomorrow is Registration Day from 8am-4pm.  Those students who have not completed the Online Registration will need to complete it by tomorrow.  Those who have already completed the online registration process can access their student's teacher by logging into Aspire/SIS, and when on their students homepage, click the "Scheduling" tab on the right hand side.  Thanks for all your patience as we learn this new system together!  Look for an email next week with upcoming dates and important information.  Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!

Online Registration


Nebo School District is now moving to Online Registration.  It will be located on our Larsen Website, under the registration tab.  Online Registration is open and will need to be completed for each student. If you have questions, or need help completing the registration process, feel free to call or come into our office Monday-Thursday 8am-1pm.  Upon completion of the registration process, class assignments will be made available beginning on July 31st.  You can access this information by logging into Aspire and viewing the assigned Advisor.  We are very excited for this new registration process and hope that you will find it saves you time and hassle.  If you are a new student to Larsen, you will still need to stop by the office to give the needed papers, in order to complete your child's registration.  We hope you are enjoying a great summer break with your kids!  


Help Our School Earn Money with Macey's School Cents Program



Macey’s is excited to serve our community and local schools with the continuation of the School Cents program. They are happy to be a part of the education experience of today’s children and are proud to offer the School Cents program as a way for schools to obtain additional education funds. 

The School Cents program will continue to run through the Macey’s Perks® program, allowing them to electronically track the credit each school earns. Schools will earn 1% back on eligible purchases from July 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. Please note that gift cards, tobacco and alcohol purchases, pharmacy expenses and sales tax will not count toward our school’s earnings. Final numbers will be calculated on April 1, 2018 and a check will be issued shortly thereafter. Participating schools are eligible to earn up to $10,000 per school year. 

The success of the School Cents program depends on our school’s supporters. Please shop at Macey’s and link your Macey’s Perks account to our school.  All you will need to do is link your account this year, even if you have linked it in the past. For directions on how to link an account, visit 

If you don’t have a Macey’s Perks account you can easily sign up by visiting any Macey’s location.
