Larsen Receives Weather Station


Shannon Babb, of Utah County 4-H presented a weather station to Larsen Elementary principal Cami Thomas, and the Larsen 4-H ambassadors. The weather station is sponsored by Utah County 4-H and the Central Utah Water Conservancy District. We will be using it not only to keep track of weather data at our school, but also to compare it to weather data from East Meadows elementary and other schools in the area. 

Halloween Was Spooky at Larsen Elementary


Larsen students had such an exciting Halloween at school.  FIrst they got to walk into Monster University and then had a parade of costumes for their parents.  Then each class held their Halloween parties in their classrooms.  Thank you so much to the PTA and parent helpers that came and made it all a huge success. 

Monsters Have Invaded Larsen


Monsters have invaded our school!  The faculty and staff dressed up as monsters and invited the kids to come into Monster University.  We can't wait to see all the spooky costumes that are at our school today.  Happy Halloween everyone!  The costume parade starts at 12:40.

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.
