Larsen Elementary's second graders got a special treat when Maple Mountain High's football team stopped by to visit with the students and read a few books. The students had a great time reading with the players and visiting with them about school and being a football player. We appreciate Coach Burtenshaw and the MMHS's football players taking time to make a positive impact on our students.
What do kindergarten students love? To ride the school bus! What makes it even better? When the bus takes them to the Big Red Barn in Santaquin. Kindergarten students got to take a bus ride, and then ride in a big wagon to the apple orchards to pick their own apples. The day was completed by a run through the maze and an apple doughnut! What a great day! Way To Go Leopards!!!
The kindergarten classes at Larsen had a lot of special visitors on Friday, October 7, 2011. Grandparents, parents and friends came to kindergarten to hear a short program and eat lunch with the students. Grandparents from as far away as California, and as close as just down the street joined in the fun! Way To Go Leopards!!
Fifth grade students learned about Native Americans by creating a pyramid. Each student chose a tribe and then had to represent four different sections of that tribe, like where they lived, what they ate, arts and crafts, and other important information they could find. This activity is a lot of work for the students but the pyramids turned out amazing! Way To Go Leopards!
The fifth-graders at Larsen Elementary got to meet a real author, Janene Wolsey Baadsgaard. They participated in her wonderful presentation where they learned about the writing process and even helped her start writing a new story! The fifth graders learned about what it takes to be a real author and discovered that they all have the potential to be great authors themselves. Way To Go Leopards!

Larsen Elementary announces its new student body council for the new 2011-2012 school year. This is an exceptional group of individuals! They have worked hard to shine in the classroom and have been outstanding examples of citizenship as well. They are an extremely friendly group who are anxious to help out, wherever they can. We are so excited to have these students on this year's student council! Way To Go Leapords!!

On Monday September 12, 2011 Larsen Elementary held their annual fall carnival. Students and their families enjoyed a wonderful Fall evening filled with silent auctions, yummy food, games, prizes, rides and one of the favorites, rock climbing! Some of the fun games and rides included the ever popular rock climbing tower, bouncy house, train rides and the giant shark slide! This year the carnival was held outside in the nice cool weather. It was a perfect night for a carnival!
Larsen PTA did a wonderful job putting together our fall carnival this year and we want to send them a huge THANK YOU! Larsen also wants to thank all of the parent helpers, teachers and staff for their help and volunteering their time and efforts to make our carnival such a huge success this year. We would also like to thank all of those businesses, organizations and families that contributed to our silent auction. Way to go leopards!!
