The kindergarteners at Larsen Elementary celebrated a special “Quilt Day” at school by bringing their quilts, wearing their jammies, and drinking hot chocolate.
Students got to choose if they wanted their hot chocolate plain, with whipped cream, or with marshmallows. Students in Mrs. Eckhardt’s classes, and in Mrs. Hyer’s class rounded out the day by playing a quilt game while sitting on their quilts.

Larsen Elementary held their annual Christmas Choir Concert on Dec. 2, 2010.  Eighty students from 5th and 6th grade performed favorites such as “Hot Cup of Cocoa,” “Holiday Blessings,” “Joy in Jerusalem,” and more for students and parents. They even played hand bells for a couple musical numbers. It was a great evening!  These dedicated students practice before and afterschool several times a week. The choir directors are Julie Peery and Dawn Graham.

On Friday November 19, 2010, Larsen Elementary 6th grade students blasted off to another planet as we visited the Clarke Planetarium in Salt Lake City.  While at the planetarium we learned about the moon phases, the Earth’s orbit and the Sun.  Students had a great time watching the presentations “Sky Watch I and II,” and after during the question and answer period we even learned something new.  Thanks for the info “Rob!” 

After exploring the Planetarium we walked down to the Gateway Mall where we enjoyed eating our sack lunches before orbiting back home where we landed safely back at Larsen Elementary.  Way to go Leopards!

The fifth grade went to the Olympic Park in Park City. While there the students participated in five rotations that taught about the history of Park City and skiing, the differences between Park City in 1938 and now, and explored the museum. After the museum we got to go up the mountain and see the top of the ski jump as well as the bobsled run. We were lucky because the day we went was the first day of bobsled practice and we got to see two bobsled teams zooming by at 80 miles per hour! The two teams we saw on their practice run were from the Netherlands and Belgium. We also saw the USA women's bobsled team. It was a fantastic day!

Children at Larsen Elementary were more than just a little excited for the first snowfall of the year. Everyone was so happy and excited for the new winter wonderland so they could play in the snow that they decided to build snowmen during lunch recess. By the time the bell rang and lunch was over, we had 4-5 snowpeople join the playground that day.

A big thank you goes out to all of the parent helpers, teachers, staff and PTA for
a "spooktacular" evening. We would also like to thank all of those businesses, organizations and families that contributed to our silent auction.
