They had a great time taking a tour and learning many new things about the Olympics and the park itself. Everyone got to go up to the top of some of the jumps and other parts of the park to experience a bit of the thrill that Olympians got to feast on in 2002. They learned that Olympic athletes from all over the world still train there today, and some 5th graders said they'd like to join those elite snow-lovers sometime in the future!

Larsen Elementary honored those who have served our country in the Armed Forces on Veterans Day.  The American Legion came to our school and shared a message about the brave men and women who fought for the freedoms we enjoy.  Mr. Scoubes and Mr. Cole, who are both teachers at Larsen, have both served in the military.  Thank you Veterans for your service and sacrifice so that we can enjoy a free country.  We love the USA!
