Magic Show

Students and faculty at Mapleton Elementary  were treated to a very special Magic Show sponsored by Ken Garff, "It Pays to Read" program.

"Radical Readers"

Mapleton Elementary students have been brushing up on their reading strategies. We are pleased to award our "Radical Readers" for their good example to others and a reminder to all of us to keep reading!  The more you read the more you love it and the better you will be at reading! We would like all students to become a "Radical Reader". Congratulations to the following students pictured here from left to right:

A Gift of Pumpkins

On a beautiful fall day , Jake Harward of Harward Farms arrived at Mapleton Elementary with a gift for every student in the School.  Each student was presented with their very own pumpkin.  Students lined up with smiles on their faces and a big thanks to Mr. Harward for being so generous. It didn't matter what size they received, they were cheerful and willing to carry their pumpkin all the way to class. Teachers and studentscame up with great ideas for using pumpkins in class and sending them home. They were carved, sorted, cut open and seeds counted, decorated and carried home.  Mr.
