Hat's off to our Second Grade Students and their teachers, Sheri Jensen, Christine Jones, Jeanmarie Andersen, Kelsey Foster and Karlee Hansen. They welcomed their students with the theme "We Can Do Hard Things" . Then they put them right to work and proved it! Sheri Jensen reported on the event as follows:
We hope all students and parents are enjoying their summer break. As we prepare for a new school year, we want to let you know of a few important dates that are coming up.
At Mapleton Elementary School children are encouraged to treat others with respect and kindness. We are pleased to present these students with an award for "Being a Good Friend" at school. Teachers have chosen them for their continued effort to treat others with kindness and respect. We want to congratulate these students for "Doing Their Best".
