We wanted to thank our PTA and Larsen families for an amazing Teacher appreciation week! The PTA made us breakfast, lunch, treats, prizes, sidewalk pictures, movie night and even took over every class for 30 minutes so that teachers could have a longer lunch. We are so grateful for all their hard work and all the time they put into making Larsen a great place to be! We love our PTA!
Larsen Kindergarten-2nd grades all took a field trip to Hogle Zoo on Wednesday. The students were so excited about how active the polar bear, otters and elephants were that day. They learned about the animals and habitats of all different species. We had many parent helpers that day also to help keep all the kids where they were supposed to be. Thanks to everyone for helping make this field a success!
The Living Planet Aquarium came to 4th grade and talked about animals and their habitats. There were 2 snakes and a salamander that students got to meet. Some even were brave enough to touch them. It was fun also because one of presenters was our own Mrs. Head's daughter. Thank you Living Planet Aquarium for helping us learn new things!
Would would like to congratulate Grant Williams, Darcy Horton, Cooper Jeffress, Silas Dansie, Rogue Llewellyn and McKayla Larson on being our Fiesta Days Rodeo Reading Challenge winners! Each one receives 2 tickets to the rodeo in July. Darcy Horton and Cooper Jeffress were the grand prize winners and will receive, along with the 2 tickets, boots, hat, jeans and shirt.
The total minutes read for our entire school is 168,785 minutes during the month of April. We are so proud all the hard work our Larsen students did to reach this goal. Keep up all the good reading!
Our amazing PTA set up an activity for families to come to the school and write messages to the teachers and staff here at Larsen on the sidewalks. Students were having so much fun drawing pictures and talking all about their teachers. It was heartwarming to see how much our kids love school and the people here at Larsen. Thank you for showing everyone so much appreciation!
Mr. Sansom spent the afternoon in Mrs. Wilson’s class yesterday teaching the fourth graders about tableaux vivant, or a living, frozen picture. We created our own tableaux featuring a scene from Wonder. It was incredibly cool to think deeply about the characters in this scene, and what their thoughts and feelings were in that moment. Thanks, Mr. Sansom, for doing this drama activity with us! We loved it!
Today is Principal Appreciation Day and we wanted to make sure that we recognize our amazing principal, Mrs. Clark! She works tirelessly and is an advocate for every student everyday. Mrs. Clark makes sure that each one is getting the education, skills and opportunities they need to be successful in their schooling.
The staff at Larsen Elementary are so grateful for her as well. Mrs. Clark always has a smile on her face and is so positive. She goes above and beyond to make all of us feel valued and appreciated.
