Larsen 2nd grade students loved their visit to Utah's Kennecott Bingham Copper Canyon Mine in Bingham UT. The 2nd graders were completely amazed at how big the mine actually was. The huge mine is 2-3/4 miles across at the top and 3/4 of a mile deep. You could stack two Sears Towers on top of each other and still not reach the top of the mine.
Students were in awe of the giant electric shovels that can scoop 85 tons of material in a single pass, and the giant dump trucks which stand over 23 feet tall. The students had a great time touring the visitors center playing with all of the interactive displays and exhibits and learing lots of fun new things, What an amazing fun day! WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
On October 9th, the first grade was able to go to Cornbelly's Corn Maze at Thanksgiving point on our first field trip of the year! We had such a great time playing on the bounce pads, taking hay rides, watching pig races and picking pumpkins!
It was a fun-filled day full of smiles and good times. Thanks to all of our awesome parent helpers for helping us out on the field trip! Way To go Leopards!

Larsen students are now a little "smarter" than before. Students recently had a fun assembly where they were instructed by "Netsmartz" on computer and internet safety. Larsen students got to watch a fun video and then learned about using the internet and what are the do's and don'ts on giving out information over the internet. Way To Go Leopards!
Larsen Elementary student council and Mr. Andersen recently accepted a check from Maceys thanks to all the parents who turned in their Maceys store receipts for the “School Cents” Program. The school cents program helps our school receive much needed equipment and supplies for our students and classes. Way To Go Leopards!!

Mrs. Sorenson's Class:
The second graders have been learning about rules and laws. They know the difference and why we have to have rules and laws. They know that rules have to be fair for everyone. Rules help us in our classrooms, on the playground and in our homes. Laws help us in our community. All second graders know that following rules and laws keep of safe everywhere we go.
Sergent Martinez from the Orem Police Department came to visit with us about the importance of obeying the law. He told us that laws are in place to help us be safe. He told us to remember to walk in the cross walks, wear our helmets when riding bikes, and wear our seat belt in the car. Thank you to Sergent Martinez for helping us learn and grow.
