    McTeacher Night

    McTeacher Night is coming to Max Larsen! This is a fundraising opportunity for our school that involves nothing more than having dinner at our local McDonald's with members of our Larsen staff! Our McTeacher Night will be held on Monday, March 30th from 4:30-7 PM. During that time frame, our school gets 20% of all INSIDE sales. Our students' artwork will be on display, and our staff will be serving food, cleaning tables, and greeting families! It is always a fun-filled evening! Hope to see you there!

    Reading Month

    March is a fun filled month of reading and activities for our students. We will have our book fair, dress up days, an assembly, and more. Please check your child's Friday Folder for more information.

    First Grade Swimming

    Our 1st Grade students will have the opportunity to attend an introduction to swimming lessons during the month of March. Please check your child's Friday Folder for additional details and permission slip. Permission slips need to be returned by February 28th.

    Summer Camp Invention

    Camp Invention is a nationally acclaimed summer program where STEM concepts come to life. Children entering grades K-6 gain confidence as they participate in hands-on activities inspired by world-changing National Inventors Hall of Fame Inductees. Our 2020 program activities are ALL NEW, led by experienced local educators and grouped by grade level. Branch County students are lucky enough to have a sponsor support our kids in this program. The regular cost is $235, but our students are able to attend for $130.

    • Location: Branch Area Careers Center
    • Date: June 15-19, 2020
    • Time: 9 AM-3:30 PM
    • Camp Director: Mellissa Connin, conninm@quincyschools.org or 517-693-9885 extension 1022

    Box Tops

    For anyone needing to turn Box Tops in, the last day to turn them in is February 26th. Thank you for your participation.

    Cold Weather

    Please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the cold weather outside. Students will continue to have outdoor recess unless the temperature reaches 10º or below (with the wind chill). Hats, coats, and gloves are all needed. Please also label all weather gear if possible.

    Extra Clothes

    We ask that parents send an extra pair of clothes in their child's backpack in the event of an accident. Bathroom accidents and/or spills happen at this age and unfortunately, we do not always have clothes on hand.

    School Meals

    Breakfast is free to all Max Larsen students. Menus can be found on the school website by following the prompts or you can download the app. Checks, made payable to Coldwater Lunch Fund or cash are accepted.

    Dismissal Procedures

    If you arrive in a vehicle, we are requiring that you participate in our curbside dismissal procedure. Please DO NOT leave end-of-day transportation changes on the school answering machine, as we do not check messages until after the school day has ended. Please make sure all changes are made before 3 PM Monday through Thursday and 2 PM on Friday.
