Larsen 4th graders had fun celebrating Pioneer Day with dressing up in pioneer clothes, dancing, games, art and tasty food. The students made covered wagon art, learned pioneer weaving, played pioneer games, ate cornbread and honey butter. They ended the celebration with dancing the Virginia Reel and Texas Star for parents and visitors. We were also glad the Mrs. Johnson came back to help them learn the dancing! Way to go 4th graders!
