The athletes talked to the kids about avoiding harmful substances, developing a lifelong love of learning, and treating others with kindness and respect among many other things.

Larsen Elementary was honored to have local veterans come to our school and speak about America and what freedom means to them. They talked about how freedom is not free and how many people had sacrificed their lives so that we can free. They performed a flag ceremony also and showed such respect to our flag.
