Just before our Christmas break, 6th graders from Mapleton and HobbleCreek Elementary performed several numbers that they have learned so far this year. It is amazing how much the students have learned in just four months and we greatly appreciate Jessica Knight, the orchestra director.
Miss Belknap is one of our amazing 4th Grade Teachers. We love having her here, as do her students. Her favorite children's book is Night House Bright House by Monica Welington. Her favorite vacation is going to Italy. Her dream vacation is to go to Australia. Her hobbies are reading, watching movies, and loves to go hiking. She has 4 brothers, 1 sister and they all live in a different country. She loves working at Mapleton Elementary because everyone is so kind, respectful and friendly.
Miss Foster’s class built dog houses with the help of BYU construction management students. Colton Williams taught the class about the structure of building houses.We learned how to build houses out of popsicle sticks. We also learned the names for things for the house like jousts, headers and sub floors.
Today our class made dog houses out of wood in pieces that were already made. We drilled the pieces together and attached shingles to the roof. There were some harder parts to drill or staple, but it was really fun.
