Calling all super dads!!

Our amazing students made a green house several years ago and we need your help to get it moved. We would love to have the green house moved from the lower garden to the side of the building by the red donation school house. Please contact Jen Oldham if you are willing to help with this project!


6th Grade is attending Outdoor Ed! Please make sure your 6th grade student is at LES Monday 10/2 at 8:00 am! They will enjoy one of the best outdoor education experiences in Colorado! YMCA of the Rockies has created unique learning opportunities with their programs, blending scientific inquiry with hands-on exploration, adventure and creative expression to accommodate all learning styles. We are super excited to engage in our outdoor learning! Please be sure to pick up your student in the town park on 10/4 at 2:30.



Your good work ethic tells future employers what they might expect from you on the job. But did you know it can also set you up for success? A good work ethic can be the determining factor in just how well you’ll do in school-–and in life.


Four components to a good work ethic and just why they’re so important to your student and their future:


Attendance and punctuality: Whether in school or work, students learn and accomplish most when they show up, on time and prepared. They can’t learn if they’re not there! And when they come late, it’s unlikely that they’re really ready to do their best work. Good attendance and punctuality are two important pieces of a good work ethic –and they’re easily addressed and accomplished.


Hard work: At the foundation of a good work ethic is a whole lot of hard work. In school, it may mean staying in for extra help from their teacher or fine-tuning their assignments to reach their individual potential as well as completing and turning in their homework on time. 


Positive Attitude: A positive attitude can set students apart from their peers –and it can be infectious! Approaching every task—big and small—with a good attitude shows that they’re a team player dedicated to, not just their own success, but also to the success of their peers and their school.


Accomplishment: The more students accomplish, their opportunities grow for further advancement. Good work ethic is likely to be recognized, acknowledged and rewarded and can serve as a building block to their future success.


We are working hard in helping our students learn good work ethic at Larkspur Elementary. It is important for us to partner and work together to ensure we help build a solid foundation and set them up for success for many years to come.

We have had a number of illnesses circulating through our school and will be happy for all to have fall break and get rested up!  If your child is experiencing the following symptoms, we ask that you please follow your health room guidelines:


Vomit or Diarrhea - your child should stay home for a minimum of 48 hours from the last event (without the aid of medication)


Fever - your child should stay home for 24 hours, fever free without the aid of medication


**These are considered excused absences.**

















Thank you for all your support in helping us build a solid foundation for each and every single one of our bobcat cubs. Their future is most important to all of us and we appreciate all your support. Please feel free to contact me with any comments, questions or concerns. 


Jen Oldham, Principal
