Mrs. Hutchin's 5th grade class had an election in their classroom on Election Day. Students wrote speeches and debated about education and the environment while representing fictional political parties in the primaries and presidential debate. Jessica Esquivel was voted to be the president at the end of the day.
Friday was an extra special day at Mapleton Elementary! Five local Veterans visited each grade level where students showed their gratitude through hundreds of cards written, posters made, poems and songs performed, and even salutes and many rounds of applause. It was a humbling experience as these men briefly shared their stories of service and received the warm "welcomes" and "thank yous" from Mapleton students. Even as the Veteran's were leaving and waved goodbye to those in the lunchroom, students stood, cheered and clapped showing their respect and appreciation.
Our theme this year is "Choose to make a Difference," and this term we are focusing on "choosing to be kind." Each week during this month our teachers have picked out a student in their class that they see showing kindness here at school. Make sure to look at all three pictures for the month of October, showing all of our students of the week showing kindness.

We are excited to have the Scholastic Book Fair going on this week. It will be open Tuesday - Friday and during both evenings of parent conferences. The money that comes to the school from the book fair fundraiser helps buy books and other supplies that teachers need to enhance instruction in their classrooms.
