Larsen Elementary recently held its annual Science Fair. Hundreds of hours went into the wonderful projects and experiments dipslayed by 5th and 6th grade students. Students researched how popcorn pops, plant growth, light, altitude, static electricity, soap bubbles and many more exciting and educational topics. Thank you and congratulations to all of those who participated. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Our 4th grade students recently took some time and created Leopard picture collages. Each one of the 4th grade students were given a piece to a picture of a Leopard. The students then colored the pieces and the pictures were put together to create a leopard! They all turned out amazing. Way To Go Leopards!!
First Graders Celebrate 100 Days of School!!
On January 28th, first graders at Larsen Elementary celebrated their 100th day of school! Everyone knows that a celebration calls for. . .cake and balloons!
It was a fun-filled day full of cake, streamers, balloons, confetti and various activities. Every first grader brought 100 things from home to put on their desks to display for our 100th Day Parade. Each first grade class was able to parade through the other first grade rooms and observe all of the creative things other first graders brought to show. Some of these items consisted of 100 pennies, water balloons, legos, candies, etc.
Another fun activity consisted of drawing a self-portrait of what our first graders think they might look like at 100 years old! A lot of them looked pretty good for their age!
We love school (and cake too) and are 100 days smarter! :)
Recently Ms. Woods 5th grade students earned a class pajama movie party. The students were able to come to school wearing their pajamas and bring their favorite stuffed animal to join in the fun. Some of the things the students had to do to earn their party were: everyone turn their homework in, come in from recess on time, quietly do their classwork, keep their classroom clean. Students had a wonderful time and enjoyed taking a short break from the normal classroom routine. Keep up the good work! Way To Go Leopards!
Friday January 25, 2013 Larsen PTA held their annual before school Dads and Donuts activity from 7:00am -8:00 am. Students enjoyed reading a book from the PTA, who had given books to all of the students to read. Students chose to bring their dad, uncle, grandpa, mom, or other special person with them to the fun event. Delicious, warm donuts were served to everyone. Thank you Larsen PTA and parents for supporting your child’s reading! Way To Go Leopards!!
Larsen Elementary recently held their annual Christmas Choir Concert of 2012. Students from both 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. We absolutely love our Larsen choir and love to hear all of their hard work and dedication pay off. Way To Go Leopards!!
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!!
