Our Mapleton debate team did fantastic at district debate! All of the students worked hard to prepare and compete at the competition. Tate Robertson and Colton Marker placed 1st in affirmative. Gwendolyn Dyer and Andrew Green placed 4th in negative. We also had several top speaker awards. Way to go Mapleton Mountaineers!
Our theme this year is "Choose to make a Difference," and this term we are focusing on being "Responsible." Each week during the month our teachers have picked out a student in their class that they see being responsible here at school. Make sure to look at all of the pictures for the month of March, showing all of our students of the week being that our being responsible.
