Pancakes with Parents
PANCAKES WITH PARENTS
We are excited to provide each of our families a complete Pancake Meal Kit for you and your Larson Eagle(s) to make and enjoy together! This kit is being sent home on Tuesday, March 3rd. Included with the pancake recipe is a convenient measuring chart for your kitchen measuring needs. You can use this chart to help your child learn or practice various ways to measure, which helps students increase their math skills.
In celebration of Dr. Seuss Week, and in conjunction with our Pancake Meal Kit, we are happy to enclose a copy of an all-time kid-favorite book, “If You Give A Pig A Pancake”. Reading with your child(ren) and encouraging your children to read on their own, is one of the best fundamental skills you can practice with them. We hope you enjoy sharing this fun and happy book with your Larson Eagle(s)!
A video recording of Mrs. Murphy reading aloud “If you Give a Pig A Pancake” is posted below. Once you have your copy of the book, feel free to read along with the Principal!
Also enclosed, you will find a copy of our Title 1 Survey. Please complete this survey, and have your child return it to their homeroom teacher. These surveys help us determine what works best for our families, what things are appreciated, and what things we can change to better serve our families. The completion of this survey is GREATLY APPRECIATED.
Don’t lose your tickets! In your bag of goodies there is a numbered ticket for a “door prize” drawing. Winning numbers & prizes will be posted on the website and the Larson Elementary Facebook page on Wednesday, March 3rd.
We hope you enjoy the at home version of “Pancakes with Parents” this year! Please email pictures of your family cooking together, reading together, and dressing up for Seuss week. Please send pictures to Khris.Norton@matsuk12.us or Kelly.OMalley@matsuk12.us by March 15th. These pictures will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
Larson Eagles are the Best!

Larson Covid-19 Information
The health and safety of our students, teachers, staff, and Larson family members is our top priority. The MSBSD has created a website specifically designed to house the most updated information regarding the virus. Please visit the website below for up to dateinformation and important resource guides.
We have several at home learners at Larson this year. We want our at home learners to be able to stick to the Larson morning routine. Please click on the videos below to help you and your child/children off to a great start each school day morning!
Remote Learning Resources
On March 16, 2020, a new phase of education began for Mat-Su schools. This new phase involves adaptability and flexibility for educators, students, and MSBSD families.
- At-school elementary students will be in the building assigned to a teacher's class and may participate in specials such as music and library.
- At-home learning students will be part of the Mat-Su Virtual Learning School who will be assigned to a teacher who will meet with the students on Zoom and guide them through the selected computer-based curriculum. Parents will act as learning coaches for students in this model.
- The hybrid model will offer students, who are being taught in the building, access to the same online curriculum being used by virtual students. This virtual curriculum will be blended into lessons along with other activities. If the school needs to close, the students will use this online curriculum for remote learning.
This is an unprecedented challenge for our community and nation, but the same innovative and collaborative spirit that has allowed us to increase academic achievement and growth for our students in the MSBSD will likewise carry us through these trying circumstances. From your home in the Mat-Su Valley to wherever this message finds you, we wish you and your family the very best.
Dr. Justin Ainsworth, Associate Superintendent of Instruction
