We are offering an early registration option this year for returning students between June 27th and July 22nd (this includes kindergarten students who registered in March). This will give families a chance to register early, not stand in lines on walk-in registration day, and receive an email regarding their child's teacher when registration is complete. Remember it is optional. Please read the attached letter if interested.

The whole school enjoyed field day at the park as a reward for their good behavior throughout the school year.  Even though the weather wasn't the best for a day filled with fun and water, the students didn't let this stop them from having fun with their peers.  They enjoyed all of the activities that were planned by our PTA.  A special thank you to all of our PTA volunteers that helped to make our field day a success, and for our Mapleton fire department that came and brought a fire truck to help add a little extra water fun to our day.
