Author Janene Wolsey Baadsgaard visits Larsen Elementary 5th grade students


The fifth-graders at Larsen Elementary got to meet a real author, Janene Wolsey Baadsgaard.  They participated in her wonderful presentation where they learned about the writing process and even helped her start writing a new story!  The fifth graders learned about what it takes to be a real author and discovered that they all have the potential to be great authors themselves.  Way To Go Leopards!

New student council announced for Larsen Elementary.


Larsen Elementary announces its new student body council for the new 2011-2012 school year. This is an exceptional group of individuals! They have worked hard to shine in the classroom and have been outstanding examples of citizenship as well.  They are an extremely friendly group who are anxious to help out, wherever they can.  We are so excited to have these students on this year's student council!  Way To Go Leapords!!

Larsen Students "Fall" For Fall Carnival


On Monday September 12, 2011 Larsen Elementary held their annual fall carnival.  Students and their families enjoyed a wonderful Fall evening filled with silent auctions, yummy food, games, prizes, rides and one of the favorites, rock climbing!  Some of the fun games and rides included the ever popular rock climbing tower, bouncy house, train rides and the giant shark slide!  This year the carnival was held outside in the nice cool weather.  It was a perfect night for a carnival!
