Submitted by natalee.hansen on

6th Grade students went on their spring fieldtrip to the Provo Reclamation center April 19, 2012.  They have studied microorganisms throughout the year.

Submitted by natalee.hansen on

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.
