This week we are honoring our "Radical Readers" here at Mapleton Elementary School.
Students are working to read each day and continue to make progress in reading. We
appreciate the example they are setting for other friends and classmates. They have
chosen  reading as a priority in their studies. Congratulations to these students!

"It Pays to Read "at Mapleton Elementary school. Students had a special treat in store for them when they arrived at an assembly on Friday. Springville Librarian's, " Story Ladies"  rewarded students for all the reading they have been doing with a very special puppet show. Students were selected to come forward and compete to be able to choose how their story would end, complete with dragons, witches and other characters. Pictured here with the Story Lady are  Emma Swensen, Lexi Smith and Noah Snyder.                        .
