Four students from Maple Mountain High School visited 5th grade students at Larsen Elementary.  These high school students are role models for the DARE program.  They spoke to the fifth grade about not doing drugs or alcohol.  The fifth grade students were able to ask the high school students thought provoking questions about peer pressure, finding good friends, and having fun in high school.  We appreciated the high school students taking time out of their busy day to spend time with us.  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!

WOOSH!  The bobsled team just blew by us!  The fifth grade students at Larsen Elementary watched as teams from different countries practiced their bobsled run at Park City Olympic Park.  We also stood at the top of the Nordic Ski Jump in AWE and how high we were.  This was proceeded by a tour of the museum with five rotations learning about water cycle, economics of Park City in 1800's, and memorabilia from the 2002 Utah Olympics.  This is a fantastic field trip that we look forward to every year!  WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
