Hat's off to our Second Grade Students and their teachers, Sheri Jensen, Christine Jones, Jeanmarie Andersen, Kelsey Foster and Karlee Hansen. They welcomed their students with the theme "We Can Do Hard Things" . Then they put them right to work and proved it! Sheri Jensen reported on the event as follows:
We hope all students and parents are enjoying their summer break. As we prepare for a new school year, we want to let you know of a few important dates that are coming up.
At Mapleton Elementary School children are encouraged to treat others with respect and kindness. We are pleased to present these students with an award for "Being a Good Friend" at school. Teachers have chosen them for their continued effort to treat others with kindness and respect. We want to congratulate these students for "Doing Their Best".
The "Outstanding Service Award" goes to our Librarian, Laurie Mittanck.
Laurie has been the librarian here at Mapleton Elementary School for the past 7 years. She joined our staff and has given her time and effort faithfully. Laurie is the librarian of not one but two libraries She has added her special touch to every wall and bookcase in our school.

It is always great to see our 5th Grade students in the Wax Museum. Mapleton Staff and students were treated to many different people from history. Students choose someone they are interested in and then study about their life, write a short sketch which they memorize to tell others about their character. Thanks to all the teachers and students for their effort and fine performance.
Pictured here are many of our 5th grade students, including a picture #1 of Jacie Peterson and her twins sisters Sienna and Oaklie who are students in 1st grade.
Kindergarten students paraded the halls of Mapleton Elementary while all other students lined up to see students in their very clever forms of transportation which included cars, trucks, planes and other vehicles. Students were told about their country by great volunteers and enjoyed activities throughout the day. Pictured here are the parading students and volunteers telling them about America.
Have you ever wondered what your teachers do after a hard day at school? Why they work on their team building skills!
How do they do that? Play dodge ball of course . . . choose up teams, set up the course, blow the whistle! And it wouldn't be any fun without an audience, cheering squad and some treats to top it off! And yes, a wonderful time was had by all. So wonderful in fact it will be repeated once again this week! Being a teacher can be fun too! How do you unwind at your school?
