Thank you so much for the many donations brought in during our gratitude week. We had over 1800 items donated during our 5 day campaign. The student council worked hard to sort and organize the items. Because of the generosity of Mapleton School families, many lives will be blessed this holiday season. We are grateful to you for your continued support of this service project each holiday season!
Mapleton School students and staff are all awesome! A student council member had an idea to create a large "I AM" mural highlighting the talents of everyone in our school. Thanks to the student council for organizing this and helping to put up the more than 700 index cards. Next time you are in the school, stop by the wall outside of the lunchroom and see this amazing project!
This week is our GRATITUDE week sponsored by our student council. We are asking for donations that could help other children and families in need this Christmas and anything donated is greatly appreciated. The schedule is as follows (but items can be brought in any day during the week): Monday - new gloves, hats, and socks; Tuesday - canned food; Wednesday: gently used clothing; Thursday: hygiene products; and Friday: new toys, games or stuffed animals.
Today Mrs. Hansen 6th Grade class dissected owl pellets. Owl pellets were donated by Patti Richards with Great Basin Wildlife Rescue.
Mrs. Howcroft brought owl pellets for us to dissect today. Most of us had no idea that owls eat their food whole and then regurgitate the bones and fur of whatever they ate. We used a bone guide to try and determine the meal the owl had eaten. It was fun and very interesting.
5th grade classes do a wax museum each year. Students select a deceased person in history that made some kind of influence in America. Students do research, reports, and a put together a small paragraph they memorized to present to parents and classmates. They also dressed up and spent time with props and posters. What an amazing job they did. Such hard work and dedication. Thank you to all involved to help make this happen.
