Mapleton honors local Veteran's

Students in Mrs. Richards class shared their thanks.
6th grade students presented their beautifully created patriotic posters and cards.
3rd grade students all saluted the Veterans as they entered and then shared their artwork with them.
2nd graders sang a Veterans tribute loud and strong.
5th grade students wrote acrostic poems and several read theirs aloud.

Friday was an extra special day at Mapleton Elementary! Five local Veterans visited each grade level where students showed their gratitude through hundreds of cards written, posters made, poems and songs performed, and even salutes and many rounds of applause. It was a humbling experience as these men briefly shared their stories of service and received the warm "welcomes" and "thank yous" from Mapleton students. Even as the Veteran's were leaving and waved goodbye to those in the lunchroom, students stood, cheered and clapped showing their respect and appreciation. We truly are grateful for the dedication of all of our Veterans.
