Larsen 6th graders have been studying the Renaissance period and learned about the artist Michelangelo. Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling for four years on his back using custom scaffolding 59 feet above the floor. Students tried to draw on their backs underneath their desks to see how i felt to create a masterpiece in that position. Larsen Elementary has some brilliant artist for sure.
Our 2nd grade teachers put together an awesome karaoke and dance off competition for our Leopard Pride Assembly. A couple students from each class were chosen to perform in front of the everyone and 4 judges. We didn't know that Larsen Elementary students had so many great dancers. We even had a few of the staff that were chosen to go up and show their dancing skills. Great job Larsen Leopards!

We are going to have Parent/Teacher Conferences using a Walking Report Card on Thursday, March 16th. Please come between 3:00- 5:00 PM or 5:30 - 7:30 PM. Teachers have their dinner from 5:00 - 5:30 PM and will not be in the classroom between that time. Parents and their students will go to several stations to demonstrate a few concepts they have learned this year. Walking Report Cards will allow you as parents to see first-hand what your students can now do or even areas that they may need some extra help. Teachers are available to answer any questions as well. See you there!
K12 Student Innovator of the Year is an innovation competition for students in grades 4 - 12. All you have to do to compete is invent a novel (but useful) product, system, or service, and come ready to pitch it to a panel of judges (think of this like a Shark Tank experience). There are 3 categories: elementary (grades 4 - 6), junior high (grades 7 - 9), and high school (grades 10 - 12). Over $6000 in cash prizes will be awarded. The deadline for signup is March 14th. The competition will be held at BYU Provo in the Garden Court of the Wilk on April 14, 2017 from 9am - 1pm. Only the first 30 teams per grade category to register will be accepted. If you have any questions please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Champions Challenge has officially kicked off at Larsen Elementary. We had an exciting assembly that included a visit from Miss Rodeo 2017 McKenna Hales, rodeo clown Kevin Higley and members of the rodeo committee. Our own Mr. Scoubes was a good sport when he climbed into a barrel and was rolled around by two wild bulls (aka students). The Champions Challenge is a great program that teaches kids the importance of reading and how it will help them in every aspect of their lives. Those who achieve their reading goal are eligible to win a pair of cowboy boots, hat, jeans and tickets to the rodeo in June.
