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.

Today we had an assembly featuring the BYU Cougar Strong program. Several athletes, Cosmo and the Dunk Team taught about being strong mentally, socially and physically. Students were able to interact and get involve and our guests showcased some of their amazing jumping, flipping and dunking skills. It was definitely an exciting assembly!
5th grade students were able to spend time with Officer Miller for the past couple of months participating in the NOVA program. This is a Utah based program focusing on helping students make choices based on core values, avoid harmful substances, be accountable for their decisions, and be wise with social media. They recently held their graduation and several students shared their essays explaining what they had learned. We appreciate Mapleton City Police Department for all they do to support our school!
