Brandon Mull, the author of Fablehaven, The Beyonders, Dragon Watch, and lots of other Fantastic fantasy books came to our School! The kids were beyond excited. Some of the kids were even able to have their books signed by him that they had ordered. So happy we get such incredible people at Mapleton.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THESE INCREDIBLE KIDS!!!
These kids took the theme, " Look Within" to another level this year. Not only did our school get to enjoy their amazing work, but the entire Region did as well. Keep up the good work! You can do anything, you put your mind to.

Mrs. Belknaps Math Enrichment class recently finished their 'shark tank' project. Each group of students had to come up with a product that helped solve a common problem and present it to the 'sharks', Miss Belknap and Mrs. Northcutt. They did an awesome job of critically thinking and putting detail into their product designs and pitches. We definitely have some future entrepreneurs in 6th grade!

"On this day let us solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who fought so valiantly, on the seas, in the air, and on foreign shores, to preserve our heritage of freedom, and let us reconsecrate ourselves to the task of promoting and enduring peace so that their efforts shall not have been in vain" -Dwight Eisenhower
May we NEVER forget what a privilege it is to honor our flag!!!
