Israel, Ireland, and India are just three of the places we visited while watching Christmas Around The World. The fifth grade students at Larsen Elementary traveled not only to BYU, but to other countries as we watched dances performed by the BYU Dance teams. The costumes were amazing, authentic, and colorful! It helped us get into the Christmas Spirit! WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!
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!!
Our sixth grade class had a blast at Clark Planetarium this year! They walked on the moon, visited Mars and went on a space roller-coaster. Students were able to explore and experience Science, hands-on, with the wonderful activities that Clark Planetarium offers. We had so much fun and are anxiously awaiting our next outing! WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Fourth Graders were excited to have a real-life mountain man, Scott Sorenson visit us recently. He kept us spell-bound as he told us tall tales as well as true stories about the adventures of real mountain men.
We also loved the animal calls he did for us and were excited to learn that we can call a chipmunk by wetting our hand and kissing it. Believe me, we all had to try it. We loved being able to stroke the furs he brought as well. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
Larsen Elementary's second graders got a special treat when Maple Mountain High's football team stopped by to visit with the students and read a few books. The students had a great time reading with the players and visiting with them about school and being a football player. We appreciate Coach Burtenshaw and the MMHS's football players taking time to make a positive impact on our students.
