Right before Thanksgiving break; our 5th grade students had the opportunity to visit the Olympic Park up in Park City. We had fun learning about how winter sports have changed over the years, the different equipment they use, how snow happens through the water cycle, and snowflake formations. The students also got to walk along the actual track used for bobsledding and the skeleton man races. Unfortunately, we were checking it out in between competitions and couldn’t stay to watch but we got to see some of the athletes at their award ceremony. Overall, it was a very fun (and cold) experience. The student’s also received a free voucher to ride either the ski lift or alpine slide so I’m sure they’ll be back!  Way To Go Leopards!

Recently 4th grade students from Larsen Elementary joined the Union troops and enjoyed a fun filled day out at Camp Floyd.  On our field trip to Camp Floyd the fourth graders made adobe bricks and candles, went to pioneer school, drilled with the army, visited a stage coach inn and toured a museum. We played pony express games and learned about the events that led up to the US Army marching to Utah.  Among other things we also got a taste of what school life was like in the 1860s.  It was a great experience to travel back in time and visit Camp Floyd.  Way To Go Leopards!!

Larsen Elementary recently had some very special visitors come to our school to help us honor Veteran's Day. We are so proud of all of our veterans and enjoyed having them come and talk to us this year. We watched a video presentation, and each one of the Veterans and our own Mr. Scoubes, introduced themselves and talked to the students and told us a little about where they have served.  It was a very touching and moving assembly reminding us all of what these wonderful Veterans have sacrificed and done for us and our Country so that we can be free. At the end of the assembly we were privileged to have one of the Veterans play "Taps"! It was the great start to a very honorable day!

On Friday November 2nd, Larsen 6th Grade blasted off to Salt Lake on their fall field trip to Clark Planetarium.  Luckily we were able to orbit and land at the Planetarium before the snows started.  We enjoyed learning about the reasons for our seasons, as well as constellations of the sky. the students also had a great time exploring and discovering new things while at the Planetarium. We got to eat our lunches at the Gateway and landed back at Larsen before the snow got too deep. Way To Go Leopards!!

We loved being able to stroke the furs he brought to show us.

Fourth Graders were excited to have a real-life mountain man, Scott Sorenson visit us recently.  He kept us spell-bound as he told us tall tales as well as true stories about the adventures of real mountain men. We also loved the animal calls he did for us and were excited to learn that we can call a chipmunk by wetting our hand and kissing it.  Believe me, we all had to try it.  It was very exciting to see all of the furs of the many different animals he brought to show us.   WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!

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!!
