Jack and the Beanstalk Comes to Larsen

The TYE Company from UVU presented "Jack and the Beanstalk" to the students at Larsen.  It was a delightful musical that was actually written by a UVU student.  The theater students at UVU perform a traveling play each semester for elementary schools.  The role of Jack was performed by our own Mrs. Voss' son.

Halloween at Hogwarts

Larsen Elementary was transformed into Hogwarts for Halloween.  When students walked in the door it was as if they had just walked into the halls of the magical school.  It was so fun to see all the childrens faces look in amazement as they walked through the halls.  Many of them were so excited to see characters from their favorite Harry Potter novels.  They were even excited to see the man "who's name shall not be named."  Happy Halloween from Hogwarts!

Larsen 4th and 6th graders and the unique opprotunity to visit the Jordanelle Dam and take a tour of the sight sponsored by CUWCD .  Students were able to learn how they use water to create electricity.  The Jordanelle Dam Hydropower plant is a green power source—it leaves no carbon footprint. Hydropower is one of the most efficient ways to generate energy.   After touring the Dam the students were provided lunch and even got some prizes to take home.  Thank you CUWCD for letting Larsen Elementary visit.

BYU students have been coming to teach the fifth graders about anatomy. So far they have learned about bones, muscles, the heart, and lungs. When the students were learning about the heart, they had the chance to touch a pig's heart and see what is inside.

Thank You Mrs Thomas

Happy Principal's Week to Mrs. Thomas!  Larsen Elementary is so lucky to have such an amazing woman as our principal.  She is such a champion for students and wants every single one to suceed in their education.  Mrs. Thomas makes sure that she gets to know each student by name and that they feel welcome and loved while at our school.  One student was heard walking down the hall saying "Mrs. Thomas is so cool and she new my name."  You will see her walking around in all of her different colored Converse shoes having fun with the students.  Mrs. Thomas will always point out all the positive attributes that a child has and makes them feel like they have someone that believes in them.

Her staff is equally as lucky to have her as their leader.  She works hard at helping all of our teachers acheive success in their classrooms and makes sure that they know she supports them fully.  Mrs. Thomas is concerned about what is going on in each of their lives and goes the extra mile to help in whatever way she can.  Many countless hours are spent by her at the school making sure that everything is running smoothly and that everyone is happy.  

Thank you Mrs. Thomas for all you do!  You are simply the BEST!
