On February 15th, our school hosted the Area PTA meeting where Mrs. Christine Jones was awarded the PTA Service Award for 2017. Mrs. Jones has dedicated 37 years to teaching and her many teaching talents, love of music, passion for patriotism, caring patience and more have helped her touch hundreds of childrens' lives. Congratulations Mrs. Jones! She is pictured here with her husband Paul who wrote a touching tribute that is attached as well.
Mapleton Elementary was one of the first schools in the state to reach 1 millions minutes of reading recorded with Road to Success. The students received an assembly with a magician as a reward for all of the reading they have done and recorded. Keep up the good work students!!
Our theme this year is "Choose to make a Difference," and this term we are focusing on being "Helpful." Each week during the month our teachers have picked out a student in their class that they see being helpful here at school. Make sure to look at all of the pictures for the month of December and January, showing all of our students of the week being helpful.
