Congratulations to Miss Blaisdell!

Congratulations to Miss Blaisdell!

Miss Emily Blaisdell was nominated by Mapleton Elementary PTA for the Outstanding Elementary Educator Award through Utah PTA and was selected as a state winner! We have so many incredible teachers at Mapleton Elementary that there is a certain guilt that accompanies singling out just one teacher for such an award, but we are excited to celebrate Emily’s accomplishment. Her award was announced at the Utah PTA Leadership Convention and she was also recognized at the latest Nebo School Board Meeting. Congratulations Emily and thank you to all of our amazing teachers for all that they do for our children.
