Drivers start your engines! The Kindy 500 was full of adventures. They visited famous landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell, and the Lincoln Memorial. All the kindergarten students arrived in style! The Mapleton City Police were here to issue tickets just in case! What a great learning opportunity for the students.
Mapleton Elementary students won the Road to Success Dr. Seuss Read-on-thon and were rewarded with a visit from Big Budah with Fox13News. Our students read a total of 308,500 minutes during that one week, more than any other elementary school in Utah! Mrs. Jensen's second grade class had the most minutes for grades K-3 and Mr. Groneman's fifth grade class read the most for grades 4-6, earning them a spot on the stage with Big Buddah. We are so proud of all the reading that the students did. Thank you for all the encouragement and support at home!
Our very own Mrs. Barth was selected and invited to present at the National Science Teacher's Asssociation Conference in Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend. She was able to share with thousands of other educators from across the country the work she did for her Master's thesis while teaching 4th grade a few years ago on creating water chambers to generate clean and usable water. Way to go Mrs. Barth!!
The winners of the Mapleton Elementary writing contest were just announced. There is no shortage of creativity at Mapleton. There were many amazing stories turned in. All entries will become part of the Mapleton library collection and will be available for kids to check out. Congratulations to all of our incredible authors!
The library has really been hopping the last few months. In February, the 5th and 6th graders tried library speed dating and discovered some great new books. There were also a lot of brave souls that went on a "blind date" and took a chance on something different. It was a wonderful way to get kids reading books they may not have tried.
