The fourth grade had their official Hogwarts Sorting Ceremony on Wednesday, January 22nd. Former Hogwarts students in fifth grade cheered the newly sorted fourth graders into their houses. Future Hogwarts students, the third graders, were invited to the ceremony as well.

We have great teachers here at Mapleton Elementary, and this was shown by how many students were back here to shadow their teachers from previous years.
