September 20th, 2010, Larsen students are now a little "smarter" than before. Students had a fun assembly where they were instructed by Netsmartz on computer and internet safety. Children got to watch a fun video and they learned about using the internet and what are the do's and don'ts on giving out information over the internet.
September 17th, 3rd grade classes at Larsen Elementary enjoyed a nature
field trip up Provo Canyon and to the BYU Bean Museum. On the Provo River Trail, they discovered bits of nature, like rocks, leaves, and pine cones.
At the museum they got to see a live tortoise, lizard, and a snake, along with all the many stuffed animals throughout the museum. On the bus ride home they enjoyed singing songs.
On Thursday September 16th, 4th grade students from Larsen Elementary enjoyed a fun filled day out at Camp Floyd. On our field trip to Camp Floyd the fourth graders made bricks and candles, went to pioneer school, drilled with the army and toured a museum. We also played pony express games and learned about the events that led up to the US Army marching to Utah. It was a great experience to travel back in time.
For Wesley Cope's Eagle Scout project, Welsey painted a large mural of the United States on the asphalt on the East side Larsen Elementary's playground. Wesley Cope's project has not only brightened up Larsen Elementary's playground, but provides a great learning resource as well. We appreciate Wesley and all those who volunteered hours and supplies to help with this fun project that students will enjoy for years to come.
Each month as students in Ms. Jensen's class met their reading goal, they got to decorate a quilt block. At the end of the year the blocks were sewn together to make a quilt that they will take home. Congratulations to all of the students who were diligent enough to read, read, read and earn a quilt this year!
