Welcome Parents!

About Us

  • We have 2 important years together with other parents and Larsen staff in which to assist the school in fulfilling its mission of providing a rich, diverse curriculum and other additional educational experiences for every student to achieve his/her maximum potential and become responsible for contributing to their families and their community. The PTO will do this by creating a welcoming environment for all parents, students and staff to share ideas and concerns and to give many ways for parent involvement and support for our students and staff.
