Larsen Elementary held the annual Kickball tournament between faculty and the 6th graders. There was a lot of trash talking going on about who was going to win. It was an exciting game and each team had some awesome players. The teachers pulled through and won the game much to the students surprise. The PTA provided everyone with a popscile to cool themselves off. Great job teachers and 6th graders!
The fifth and sixth grade choir at Larsen spent all day yesterday participating in Hope of America. This incredible program inspires kids across Utah county to be patriotic and appreciate this amazing country we live in. They learned about the Declaration, the Bill of Rights, and how to inspire others. Their hard work paid off, because we had a blast!
We are happy to announce that Utah Food Bank is sponsoring free summer lunches for kids again . They will be held at the Spanish Fork City Library Park between 11:30 - 1:00 PM. There is no registration required but the food must be consumed on-site. We don't want any child to go hungry during the summer months!

5th Grade has been working hard for the past four weeks on their State Fair projects. Upon walking into the fair, we were met with students posing as a significant figure from their chosen state. Students researched the history, environment, industry, and many other aspects of their states to present to parents and others at the school. We had a fun time!
Larsen 5th Graders are getting ready for their State Fair and wax museum. They have been working hard on their projects and learning all about the great country we live in. The Fair will be held on Friday, May 5th. Parents are invited to come tour and listen to all the interesting facts about each state from a famous person (aka a smart 5th grader) from 1:00-2:30 PM. Make sure your student has their diorama and costume ready.
