On January 17th, our 5th grade students graduated from the NOVA program. This 12 week course taught by Officer Miller from the Mapleton Police Department focused on seeking positive opportunities, instilling values, and accepting accountability for choices. We appreciate Officer Miller and the lifelong lessons that he taught.
Our planning time technician position for music/drama is open and we are hiring. If you or someone you know is interested, please have them visit www.nebo.edu/jobs and click on Mapleton Elementary. The position is for Monday through Thursday in the afternoons.
Students at Mapleton and HobbleCreek who participate in the orchestra program joined forces for a holiday concert last night. There were group numbers, duets and solos. They have practiced 2-3 times a week before school for three months now and have learned so much already. We appreciate the talented teacher, Jessica Knight.
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!
