Larsen Elementary second grade classes were able to attend the Farm Field Days in Springville on April 4, 2012. We learned about how important agriculture is to everyone. We started off the day seeing how a sheep gets a hair cut. Farmers like to call it sheering. The sheep love to get rid of their heavy wool coat.
Angela Eckhardt, our wonderful Kindergarten teacher here at Larsen Elementary, is the recipient of the 2012 Crystal Apple Award. This special award is given out to teachers who always go out of their way to provide friendship and help to our students and co-workers at our school.
Recently the Larsen after school 4-H program had some very pretty princess power in one of their 4-H classes. Princesses was just one of the many fun classes held for the students to participate in. The girls who took part in the princess class learned how to have better manners, make necklaces, create a wand, decorate mirrors and last but no least, all the girls got to dress up for the last day and break a pinata. The fun princess class was taught by Mrs. Kim Head and her daughter Aubree Head. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Larsen Elementary recently celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday with a very Seussical celebration. Each class, Kindergarten through 6th grade memorized a Dr. Seuss poem and recited it in front of the entire student body during a special assembly held that morning. Everyone did a wonderful job!
The rest of the school day was filled with more Dr. Seuss stories and reading fun. Dr. Seuss would be proud of our Larsen Leopards!! WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!!
Upon completion of the 10 week DARE program the 5th grade held graduation. There were 79 students who successfully completed all of the requirements of DARE, including writing a DARE essay. The students favored the audience with three songs and two students from each class were chosen to read their essay. Our DARE officer, Officer DeWitt made DARE fun! Thank you Officer DeWitt and parents! WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Friday, January 27th Larsen Elementary held their annual Dad’s and Donuts activity before school started from 7:30 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. 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!!
