Congratulations to all the students and staff at Mapleton Elementary School for receiving their 100 Miler Award. Each of them has completed Walking 100 miles during the school year. We encourage all students and staff to be physically fit and be an example to others of the importance that exercising has to our health and well being. The following people are to be commended on a job well done!!!! Pictured from left to right;
Thanks to our wonderful PTA for giving students and teachers another wonderful Field Day! Students were challenged with a Slack line competition, Giant Twister game, then onto the Gunny Sack races! Next they went to an awesome tarp throw game where they got to throw footballs, tennis balls and frisbies through a large tarp, it was very challenging.
Congratulations to Mr. Brad Brinkerhoff and Mrs. Ginnie Snyder on their retirement from Mapleton Elementary and Nebo School District. Both were honored with an open house at Mapleton School and presented with a beautiful rocking chair which has a small engraved plate with a thank you for their years of service to Mapleton Elementary. Brad has given 35 years and Ginnie 21 years to teaching at Mapleton. Thanks to all who have visited them and remembered them in various ways.
Kelsey Foster was awarded Horace Mann's Crystal Apple for 2014. Craig Harvey presented the award and Sheri Jensen wrote the following in a tribute to Kelsey.
‘Twas a Night in Mid-August
‘Twas a night in Mid-August and all through the school, Not a child could be seen not even their drool.
‘Twas time to hang pictures and posters and charts, There was math to be planned and language arts.
The students would come, they came every year. There were things to be taught and things to make clear.
