Winter Time is Here

Submitted by teresa.beebe on Mon, 11/25/2019 - 12:26

It looks like winter has arrived.  That means its time to break out the winter clothes and dress warm!

Most days we will still be sending students outside for their recesses.  We watch the temperature and wind chill factor each day to see if it will be outside or inside recess.  Please send you students with coats, hats and gloves. Also,  if you wish for your students to stay inside please send a note with them. 

 We are excited to see all the snowmen being built out in the playgorund  but don't want any of our students to turn into one.  Happy winter everyone!

Cosmo Cougar Comes to Larsen

Submitted by teresa.beebe on Thu, 11/14/2019 - 12:55

Larsen students were so excited to have Cosmo Cougar and some athletes from BYU come and give an assembly on being COUGAR STRONG.  The athletes talked to the kids about avoiding harmful substances, developing a lifelong love of learning, and treating others with kindness and respect among many other things.  Our own Mr. Jensen even made a basket as he jumped from a trampoline.  Thank you BYU Cougars and Cosmo for the fun assembly!

Larsen Elementary was honored to have local veterans come to our school and speak about America and what freedom means to them.  They talked about how freedom is not free and how many people had sacrificed their lives so that we can free.  They performed a flag ceremony also and showed such respect to our flag.  Students wrote cards and colored pictures to give to the veterans to show their appreciation for their sacrifices.  Larsen Elementary salutes our veterans and appreciates all they have done for us and the United States of America!
