Our 6th graders have been doing hands-on STEM activities as part of planning time working with Mrs. Kox and Mrs. Roberts (in conjunction with BYU college of engineering students). Here they are exploring air waves and movement using balloon rockets. 

Third Grade Tulips


Each third grade student was able to plant his or her very own tulip bulb at our new tulip test garden located in the front of our school.  We are excited to be a school participating in the Tulips Journey North Program.  We are looking forward to tracking the progress of our tulips in our role as citizen scientists and we are especially excited to see our tulips bloom in the spring!

Steve and Lisa James Assembly


Students and teachers alike were entertained today by Steve and Lisa James. Their message of being kind and having the power to make a difference came through words and music. Students were even singing along with the fun renditions of Christmas music Steve shared with us. Great way to kick off the season!

Mapleton Elementary Choir Program


We kicked off the holiday season with an assembly and evening performance by our school choir. They sang fall and winter songs, played orff and percussion instruments and even added some character parts into their performance. It was a lovely evening. We so appreciate the talents of our students, our director, Karen Thueson, and our accompianist, Jeanette Nielson. 

Students of the Month


Our October students of the month were honored at our assembly on November 1st .  These students all show examples of being Mighty Mountaineers and especially by being safe, respectful and responsible. Congratulations!
