1st grade had a representative from Nebo Credit Union visit and teach students about money and the value of saving it. She talked about coins which we recently learned about. Each student was given a little piggy bank with a few coins. Thank you Nebo Credit Union
Students had a jolly ole time singing holiday songs around the Christmas tree. We are really getting into the Christmas spirit here at Larsen.

Just a reminder that our Christmas break will begin on December 23rd- January 1st. Classes will be back in session on January 2nd. Have a safe and wonderful holiday season!
