Recently our district applied to earn the Energy Star Certification. We sent in Energy Star applications for 44 of our facilities and ALL 44 qualified. This is an amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared to other schools around the nation. Our district average score was 99, with many schools scoring a perfect 100.
The Diamond Fork Riding Club visited Larsen and went over the Champion's Reading Challenge. The kids have an opportunity to earn a free pair of boots, a hat, a pair of wranglers, and tickets to the Fiesta Days Rodeo if they win the reading challenge. There are 2 winners from each school. Landon Hanks came and showed the kids how to rope a steer. His dad, Nick Hanks, showed the kids some rope tricks. Dale Robinson and Jason Christensen had the teachers compete against the students in a barrel racing competition. The student's won and Mrs. Cook got bucked off her horse named Ginger.
Reminder that Wednesday, March 21st, from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM is Kindergarten Pre- Registration. You will need to go online before then and add your students information by clicking on the registration tab on the right hand side of the Larsen website. If you have not signed up for an Aspire account you will need to do that and then you can start the registration process. Then on Wednesday you will need to bring in your childs birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residency paperwork. We hope to see you there!
Larsen Elementary, along with other elementary schools, welcomed upcoming kindergarteners at the Mountainland Transition Fair. Students were able to get a feel for Larsen Elemntary by playing games, receiving books and meeting our school mascot. Larsen was excited to get to participate for our first time ever as we are becoming a Title One school in the 2018-2019 school year.
Larsen Elementary was well represented at the district level with their science fair projects. Those students that will be moving on to BYU are: Nick Patchett, Tyler Phelps, Ethan Knotts, Jaron Beebe, William Stoneman, Olivia Greer, Tanner Despain, Rylan Wilkinson and Allison Slaugh. Great jobs students and good luck!
We hope to see all you parents and students at our "Parents and Pastries" tomorrow morning, March 14th, at 7:30 AM. Each child should have received a book to bring with them. If a parent can't make it send another family member, friend, neighbor or anyone else with them. See you all in the morning!
March is our final SEP conference, and for those who are new to the Larsen, we run the final conference a little different than our October and January Conferences. We call it the walking report card, and what takes place is students bring their parents during the conference time and show them the different skills they have learned throught the year. Conferences will be held on March 15th, and will run from 3:00-5:00 pm, as well as 5:30-7:30 pm. Please choose a time that is convenient to bring your child and celelbrate in all of the successes.
