Submitted by natalee.hansen on Tue, 02/22/2011 - 14:43

The kindergarteners at Larsen Elementary celebrated a special “Quilt Day” at school by bringing their quilts, wearing their jammies, and drinking hot chocolate.
Students got to choose if they wanted their hot chocolate plain, with whipped cream, or with marshmallows. Students in Mrs. Eckhardt’s classes, and in Mrs. Hyer’s class rounded out the day by playing a quilt game while sitting on their quilts.

On Friday November 19, 2010, Larsen Elementary 6th grade students blasted off to another planet as we visited the Clarke Planetarium in Salt Lake City.  While at the planetarium we learned about the moon phases, the Earth’s orbit and the Sun.  Students had a great time watching the presentations “Sky Watch I and II,” and after during the question and answer period we even learned something new.  Thanks for the info “Rob!”
