Your child is bringing home a Parent Information Envelope letting you know about a safe and easy way for our school to raise funds for essential tools our students and teachers need to succeed. Your child will receive a prize hugger just for returning the slip by Friday, 10/15.

Here is all you need to do to participate:

1. Go to https://www.schoolstore.net/sid.t?0000361776 to sign up.

2. Send form emails inviting family, friends and co-workers to support your child.

3. Return the Envelope with the Student Prize Code to school for your child to get their fun participation prize.

Fruit and Veggie Friday!

Fridays are Fruit and Veggie Day at Larson! ! The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a supplemental service provided by a Federal Grant coordinated through Nutrition Services, with Nurse Ramilo.


Every Friday afternoon for the remainder of the school year, a new fruit or vegetable will be delivered to classrooms. It is completely OPTIONAL for students to try. Some of the produce may be unfamiliar to students and teachers. The program goal is to provide a nutritious snack and encourage students to learn about new fruits and vegetables.


If you have any questions regarding the FFV Program or the process for Larson, please contact Nurse Ramilo.


Friday, October 8th was Kiwi Berry day and they were delicious!
