Larsen Elementary second graders recently took a field trip to the Farm Field Days at harwood Farms in Springville. We learned about farming and how important agriculture is to everyone. We started off the day seeing how a sheep gets a hair cut, the farmers like to call it sheering. As the days get warmer the sheep love to get rid of their heavy winter wool coat.

We want to thank all of the awesome teachers who have helped to make this mini 4-H session the very best. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Larsen Elementary's Fourth Graders have been learning about Utah pioneers and traveled back in time to the 1850s. Dressed as Pioneers, they celebrated this day by playing pioneer games, churning butter, pioneer cooking and crafts. The highlight of the daywas dancing the Virginia Reel and the Texas Star for and with their parents. Even Mr. Anderson joined in on all of the fun. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!!

Our 4th grade students recently took some time and created Leopard picture collages. Each one of the 4th grade students were given a piece to a picture of a Leopard. The students then colored the pieces and the pictures were put together to create a leopard! They all turned out amazing. Way To Go Leopards!!
Recently Ms. Woods 5th grade students earned a class pajama movie party. The students were able to come to school wearing their pajamas and bring their favorite stuffed animal to join in the fun. Some of the things the students had to do to earn their party were: everyone turn their homework in, come in from recess on time, quietly do their classwork, keep their classroom clean. Students had a wonderful time and enjoyed taking a short break from the normal classroom routine. Keep up the good work! Way To Go Leopards!
Friday January 25, 2013 Larsen PTA held their annual before school Dads and Donuts activity from 7:00am -8:00 am. Students enjoyed reading a book from the PTA, who had given books to all of the students to read. Students chose to bring their dad, uncle, grandpa, mom, or other special person with them to the fun event. Delicious, warm donuts were served to everyone. Thank you Larsen PTA and parents for supporting your child’s reading! Way To Go Leopards!!
Larsen Elementary recently held their annual Christmas Choir Concert of 2012. Students from both 5th and 6th grade performed favorites such as “Hot Cup of Cocoa,” “Holiday Blessings,” “Joy in Jerusalem,” and more for students and parents. They even played hand bells for a couple musical numbers. It was a great evening! These dedicated students practice before and afterschool several times a week. We absolutely love our Larsen choir and love to hear all of their hard work and dedication pay off. Way To Go Leopards!!
Right before Thanksgiving break; our 5th grade students had the opportunity to visit the Olympic Park up in Park City. We had fun learning about how winter sports have changed over the years, the different equipment they use, how snow happens through the water cycle, and snowflake formations. The students also got to walk along the actual track used for bobsledding and the skeleton man races. Unfortunately, we were checking it out in between competitions and couldn’t stay to watch but we got to see some of the athletes at their award ceremony.
