Students from Mapleton and Hobble Creek Elementary showed their musical skills on their string instruments last night for their winter concert. These students have been practicing several mornings a week before school and have already learned so much. There were many fun pieces played, including some fiddle work and several solos.
Our theme this year is "Choose to make a Difference," and this term we are focusing on "Gratitude." Each week during this month our teachers have picked out a student in their class that they see showing gratitude here at school. Make sure to look at all of the pictures for the month of November, showing all of our students of the week showing gratitude.
5th and 6th graders in the after school TEC club were able to show their robotic programming skills during today's competition. Students had to design and program their robot to trace a curved line, turn around at the end and return to home spot. The first place winners this time were Andrew Green and Lincoln Chase. What a great partnership with BYU Engineering Education dept.
Our school choir has been meeting for several months before school to prepare for their Christmas program. They sang both traditional and modern songs full of joy and sweet messages. Several students were spotlighted with solos or percussion parts. It was a wonderful evening thanks to the time and talents of many.
Thank you so much for the many donations brought in during our gratitude week. We had over 1800 items donated during our 5 day campaign. The student council worked hard to sort and organize the items. Because of the generosity of Mapleton School families, many lives will be blessed this holiday season. We are grateful to you for your continued support of this service project each holiday season!
Mapleton School students and staff are all awesome! A student council member had an idea to create a large "I AM" mural highlighting the talents of everyone in our school. Thanks to the student council for organizing this and helping to put up the more than 700 index cards. Next time you are in the school, stop by the wall outside of the lunchroom and see this amazing project!
