Mapleton School First Graders took their final field trip of this year, to learn about our area Grocery store and Post Office. Fresh Market in Spanish Fork welcomed First Grade Students, teachers and parents to a wonderful rotation teaching them all about healthy eating. Students were taught about some time foods and anytime foods. Eating healthy is important. As they were shown the different areas of the Market they were given samples of foods good for them, such as grains, protein, fruits and veggies.

Reading is important and these students at Mapleton Elementary School, know just how important it is! Each class teacher selects a student that shows evidence of great progress and good reading habits.
These children are making progress here at school as well as at home. It is parents and teachers, the home and the school that are making a difference. We appreciate the opportunity we have to recognize students through the Ken Garff, " It Pays to Read Program" Congratulations to the following students and their parents for this honor!
This week Mapleton Elementary honored those students who are "Doing Their Best" to be kind and friendly to others: These students are going the extra mile and their teachers and other staff
members are looking for and noticing students who deserve to be honored for their efforts. Each week as teachers are giving lessons to make children aware of the difference they can make
by understanding what "Bullying" is and how it affects others. Then students are putting into action a plan to make a difference by treating others kindly and being friends to everyone!
Mapleton Fourth Graders are flying through their multiplication facts this
year. They can remember all the multiples for numbers 2 through 9, by
singing to familiar tunes such as "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and "Yankee
Doodle." On the Morning of the PTA meeting when the class was
practicing for their performance, Mrs. Katie Barth's class came to visit Mrs.
Snyder's First Grade Class. They performed their songs for the first graders
to show what they had been learning! Students enjoyed the performance and
