Our very own Mrs. Barth was selected and invited to present at the National Science Teacher's Asssociation Conference in Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend. She was able to share with thousands of other educators from across the country the work she did for her Master's thesis while teaching 4th grade a few years ago on creating water chambers to generate clean and usable water. Way to go Mrs. Barth!!
The winners of the Mapleton Elementary writing contest were just announced. There is no shortage of creativity at Mapleton. There were many amazing stories turned in. All entries will become part of the Mapleton library collection and will be available for kids to check out. Congratulations to all of our incredible authors!
The library has really been hopping the last few months. In February, the 5th and 6th graders tried library speed dating and discovered some great new books. There were also a lot of brave souls that went on a "blind date" and took a chance on something different. It was a wonderful way to get kids reading books they may not have tried.
