Job Shadowing

Stacey Holmes

We were excited to see many 7th grade students at Mapleton Elementary on Friday, January 31.  They were here Job Shadowing with many of the teachers at the school.  The 7th grade students have the opportunity to take one day a year to learn more about a career that they are interested in.  We were happy to see many familiar faces here at the school once again.  We have great teachers here at Mapleton Elementary, and this was shown by how many students were back here to shadow their teachers from previous years.

White Ribbon Week

Stacey Holmes

We are excited about our first ever White Ribbon Week at Mapleton Elementary!  Also known as Internet Safety Week, this week is designed to help children make smart choices in media and online.  Our theme this year is "I've Got the Power!"  While we and our children may not have the power over everything that is on the Internet and other media, we DO have the power to decide what we will view, post and pass on to others.

Thankful Little Turkeys

Ginnie Snyder

Mrs. Snyder's First Grade Class enjoyed making paper bag turkey center pieces for  their parents as a Thanksgiving surprise.  Students shown here are excited to get their turkeys home!  Great job Students.  Mrs. Snyder was sad that this is the last time she will get to make these and she is surely going to miss all her "little turkeys" next year!

First Grade Holiday Fun

Ginnie Snyder

It's been a very busy holiday season for the First Grade students.  They started our with a trip to the Nutcracker at the Covey Center. They all looked so great dressed up for the event.  Everyone did a great job showing their best manners also.  We appreciated Intermountain Health Care who contributed to the Provo Civic Ballet Directed by Jenny Creer-King.  Pictured here are students, with their parents and teachers.  After the event students returned to their classes and constructed life size nutcrackers to take home.  They all did their best and we are proud of them.
