Larsen 4th graders celebrated Pioneer Day on Friday. Students dressed like pioneers, played pioneer games, made pioneer crafts, made butter and cornbread, and ended the day with a program for the parents. They performed pioneer dances and sang songs that they have been learning. They even invited their parents to come and dance with them at the end. It was such a fun day!
Utah Shakespeare in Nebo Schools
The Utah Shakespeare Festival is once again hitting the road with its Shakespeare-in-the-Schools touring production – this year performing one of the world’s first psychological thrillers, William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
An evening performance for everyone is this Tuesday, April 16, at 7:30 at Springville High School, 1205 East 900 South, Springville, UT. Another performance will be held on Monday, April 15, at 3:30 p.m. at Spanish Fork High, 300 West 99 North, Spanish Fork. And, admission is free.
Michael Bahr, the festival’s education director directed this production. “For many of our audiences this will be the first time they have seen a professional Shakespeare production,” said Bahr. “This program seeks to entertain, enrich, and educate with innovative and accessible performances to rural and urban schools and communities, many of which would not have this opportunity otherwise.”
Come be entertained and enriched with one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays – and again, admission is free!!!
Larsen 2nd graders were lucky to have author Lezlie Evans come and talk to them about reading, being an author and her books. She said "When a child opens a book he or she opens the portals to wonderous places, exciting adventures, and exciting experiences. When you read with a child, you create strong bonds and lasting memories, and when you teach children to read it empowers them. So go ahead, read with a child today!" Thank you for visiting Lezlie Evans!
Ms. Hedricks received the Horace Mann Outstanding Classified Employee Award for Larsen Elementary. She works in our special education department with Mrs. Woolsey and Mrs. Williamson. Ms. Hedricks is loved by all the students and helps each one see their worth and potential. She builds up their confidence to be able to solve a math problem, spell a word, write a sentence, read a book and so many other things. We are so lucky here at Larsen to be able to have Ms. Hedricks work with staff and students. She definitely deserves this award. Congratulations!

We are excited for our school to participate in the Fiesta Days Rodeo Reading Challenge during the month of April. Each class has set a reading goal and each student that reaches that goal for the month will be entered in a drawing for two free tickets to the Fiesta Days Rodeo in July. There will be one winner from each grade level. Two students will be grand prize winners and will win rodeo tickets, boots, a hat and jeans. We will be tracking reading minutes as a school. Spanish Fork elementary schools combined are trying to reach a goal of reading almost 3 million minutes! Please encourage your student to read and help us reach our goal!
