We know it's Christmas at Mapleton School, when there are lost Gingerbread men being searched for.  Students decorated their gingerbread on Monday morning and by lunch the little rascals had already taken off!!!  They were here, there and every where.  This year students had a special friend from Hallmark, it was a talking Gingerbread ornament Holding a sign encouraging them to eat more candy canes. They all got a small candy cane the next day, then he told them they should eat "Christmas Carrots' mm, mm, so good. So they all got "Christmas Carrotts" for a snack.

Students at Mapleton Elementary School got a special treat this week. Our Crossing Guard is awesome, she not only makes holidays fun, she goes the extra mile. Each day she has been dressed-up for Christmas. Her Elf costume is the personal favorite of everyone here at Mapleton.  She also has a basket for students to choose either a treat or a pencil. The students love it too! So from our school Mandy, we LOVE you and thanks for "DOING YOUR BEST", always! Mandy makes coming to school exciting!
