First and Second Grade students at Mapleton Elementary celebrated "Dr. Seuss Day"
with reading, singing and parading around the school. Students showed up dressed as
characters from Dr. Seuss stories and brought their books to read.
Mrs. Snyder's class has 3 sets of twins and Mrs. Snyder  also has a twin brother.
It was fun and  really made everyone smile when two sets of twins showed up dressed as

Floating Boats

Submitted by stacey.holmes on Wed, 02/22/2012 - 11:16

First Grade students at Mapleton Elementary School have been waiting patiently for
puddles!  They worked very hard to complete their homework assignment which was to
follow the directions and make a paper boat. Students did a great job and were excited
to float their boats. Much to their disappointment their were no puddles for two weeks.
Then finally on Monday after the snow storm they arrived, small but great puddles.

Pictured here enjoying those puddles with their boats  are: Front row: Conner Grace,
