Next week on Wednesday, October 5, it is International Walk to School Day. This day is a global event where children in more than 40 countries walk or bike to school to promote good health and safety. We invite students to wear blue or a Mapleton school shirt that day and encourage as many as possible to walk to school. We will be having our own "walk the school" that morning for students who ride the bus and the PTA will be providing snacks.
Fifth grade learned about current and static electricity. How to be safe using insulators and conductors. They witnessed what would happen to them if they were unsafe. Learned about where electricity is generated and the big engines that produce electricity. They had some hands on experiments and we're given a treat at the end. Thanks to Springville Power and all those involved in educating our youth.
We would like to thank you for all of the donations of school supplies that have been dropped off at our school. These donations will be sent to help children in Samoa. If you have items to donate, please bring them to this box outside the main office. Today is the last day for donations.
