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.

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!
