First Grade students at Mapleton Elementary School have been waiting patiently for
puddles!  They worked very hard to complete their homework assignment which was to
follow the directions and make a paper boat. Students did a great job and were excited
to float their boats. Much to their disappointment their were no puddles for two weeks.
Then finally on Monday after the snow storm they arrived, small but great puddles.
