Larsen Elementary received a wonderful gift from the family of Karen Anderson who passed away in 2009.  Mrs. Anderson was a beloved 1st grade teacher here for many years and we are honored that her children donated a nursery rhyme lamp to our library in her name.

Karen loved reading and children.  She helped  many students ages 5-6 learn how to read. Later,  she taught reading to other teachers as a Literacy Specialist for Nebo School District.  We are grateful for this donation and our students will have great memories of reading by it.
