Character Day

Today is Character Day at Mapleton Elementary, in support of our read-a-thon that is going on all week.  The teachers dressed up as characters of different books to encourage their students to read.  Thank you teachers and PTA for working together, and for all that you do for the students!!

4th Grade Field Trip to Hutchin's Museum

Lisa Christensen

4th graders wore themselves out on their field trip Thursday.  They had an amazing time at the Hutchings Museum where they learned about Utah History, Native Americans, Rocks and Minerals, Fossils, and enjoyed a live bird show.  Then they went to Discovery Park in Pleasant Grove to eat lunch and play on the playground.  It was educational and a lot of FUN!!!

Student of the Week/Cooperation

We will be spotlighting a Student of the Week from each classroom. These students receive a certificate and prize from Mrs. Peery with the chance to be drawn out at the end of each month for a special activity with the Principal. The focus for the month of September is "Cooperation".  The students are selected by their teachers as they see their ability to cooperate here at school.  Here are the Students of the Week for September 25.

Read-a-thon Kick Off Assembly

The PTA kicked off our Readathon fundraiser today with a fun assembly hosted by the Reading Fairy. Teachers had to answer questions to guess which storybook character was behind each curtain. We were visited by Fantastic Mr. Fox, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, the three little pigs and the big bad wolf, Mrs. McGonagall from Harry Potter and Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The school goal this week is 100,000 minutes. Let's READ!
