Larsen 5th graders graduated from the DARE program today. The DARE program teaches students about the dangers of drugs and how they hurt your body. Officer Peterson did a great job teaching the students and showing them how living a good, clean, drug free life is the best choice. Larsen 5th graders are proud to be drug free!
Larsen families were excited about all the fun glow-in -the-dark fun and Star Wars characters at the Title One Star Fest on Monday. Thanks to our PTA for putting on a wonderful family night that was enjoyed by everyone. We had an inflatable planetarium, UV light scavenger hunts, glow-in-the-dark games and even photos with the Star Wars characters. We appreciate all the families that supported this event and give a BIG thanks to the PTA for all their hard work in putting it together! Just a reminder too that the Read-a-Thon is going on until March 18th. All donations need to be turned in by March 19th.
Mrs. Taylor's class is about to get some new technology thanks to a grant from the Nebo Education Foundation. She was presented with a check today that will be used to purchase Chromebooks for her classroom. Thank you Nebo Education Foundation for helping our students have the tools they need to excel in their education.
Mrs. Howard received the Crystal Apple Award for Larsen Elementary yesterday. Mrs. Howard teaches 4th grade along with Mrs. Wilson. She works tirelessly for her students to provide them with the best education possible. She is definitley a bright spot in our school and such a pleasure to be around. Larsen Elementary is lucky to have such an amazing teacher, coworker and friend. Congrats Mrs. Howard!
